- Another American tourist has died in the Dominican Republic: The latest casualty is a California man who fell critically ill at an all-inclusive resort about a month before three others died in their rooms, Fox News has learned.

On April 14 this year, 67-year-old Robert Wallace also died in the area after having a drink from his minibar, his niece Chloe Arnold told Fox News.

Arnold further explained that the hotel doctor had checked Wallace, and decided on April 13 that he had to be hospitalized.

He said Dominican authorities told the family to expect Wallace's toxicology reports in eight to 10 weeks - possibly by the end of June, based on the timeline. Wallace died the day of the wedding, Tickenoff told the station.

Dozens of other tourists have reported severe sickness during visits to the resorts.

Last week, a Colorado couple who stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Hotel alleged that they had become violently ill after being exposed to what they suspect were insecticides through the air conditioning system.

What makes the string of deaths particularly disturbing is that many appear to follow a similar pattern in that they involve healthy, middle-aged adults who took a drink from their hotel room minibar before suddenly becoming gravely sick.

Corcoran said no autopsy has been done on her brother but she was told he suffered a heart attack. "We have so many questions", she said.
