Pennsylvania woman died days before Maryland couple at same Dominican Republic hotel

As WPXI-TV and CNN report, Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, of Whitehall Township, collapsed and died shortly after checking in May 25 at the Bahia Principe Hotel in La Romana with her husband, Dan Werner.

"Daniel and all of us are in a state of disbelief, we are shocked". "It was, at first, a little confusing that there was such a strong parallel... it immediately caused serious concern for us".

"They enjoyed vacationing in that part of the world, in the Caribbean", he told the broadcaster.

On May 27, the pair shared photos and messages on their Facebook accounts in which they appeared to be enjoying their vacation.

The Bahia Principe Hotel's statement to Fox News said that Schaup "had suffered from heart conditions in the past". An hour later, she began experiencing health problems. She could not be revived, despite her doctor-husband performing CPR.

Paramedics arrived and gave an epinephrine injection - usually used to treat severe allergic reactions. Daley also claimed that the man thought she was dead and tried to dispose of her in a hole.

"It was very sudden", McDonald noted.

Priyanka Chopra denies visiting Meghan Markle's son Archie
The last time Chopra spoke about her friendship with Markle was when she was a guest at Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen . But when Priyanka was asked if she was upset about Meghan skipping her wedding, she replied: "Oh my god, no, it's not true".


"At one point she was sitting there happily, smiling and taking pictures, and the next moment she was in acute pain and called out for Dan and she collapsed", stated Jay McDonald, Werner family spokesperson.

Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, both of Maryland, checked into the hotel on the same day as the Werner's. Officials later said they died of respiratory failure. An autopsy performed on the couple determined that they died of the same causes, according to the Dominican Republic National Police.

Hotel staff members say they found the couple in their room and unresponsive. "We are deeply saddened by this situation and express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased". "In the days that followed, we provided our complete support to Mr. Werner in collaboration with local authorities and the U.S. Embassy".

Following the couple's death, the hotel posted a statement saying, "There were no signs of violence..."

Sonya Jackson, Cynthia's sister, told NBC Washington that the two were engaged.

"I was just waiting for them to come back today, he said was gonna come see the baby today", stated Dajuan Holmes-Hamilton, Nathaniel Holmes' daughter.

Of their deaths, "That was beyond coincidence", McDonald told Fox. But it said further tests would be required to determine more about the cause of death.
