"The U.S. Embassy is actively monitoring the investigations by Dominican authorities into these tragic deaths", officials said."We stand ready to provide assistance as requested".

A State Department official said in a statement that "we are not aware of any connection between these incidents". The resorts, and the adjacent Bahia Grand Principe Bouganville, where Schaup-Werner was staying, are adjacent to one another on the island's southern coast.

The Dominican Republic resort where a DE mother says she was viciously attacked and left for dead in January, issued a statement Wednesday saying the woman demanded $2.2 million in compensation before posting her story on Facebook. "We once again express our condolences to Mr. Werner and his family and friends on the passing of Mrs. Schaup-Werner". Authorities say they were provided medical treatment but both of them died days later.

Five days later, 49-year-old Cynthia Ann Day and 63-year-old Edward Nate Holmes, an engaged couple from Prince George's County, were found dead in their hotel room at the same resort after they missed their checkout time.
