Maryland couple Nathaniel Holmes and Cynthia Ann Day are found dead in unexplained circumstances while vacationing at a ‘dream’ Dominican Republic resort.
Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, of Prince George’s County, were discovered deceased at their Bahía Príncipe hotel room at the Playa Nueva Romana resort, on the southeast coast of the country, on Thursday, The Dominican Today reported.
The couple’s causes of death have yet to be determined, with investigators saying the bodies revealed no signs of violence.
Of disconcert, investigators say several bottles of heart medication were found near the couple’s bodies. It remained unclear what health ailments Holmes and Day may have been dealing with.
Local media reported Holmes having called for a hotel doctor Thursday morning, on the day the couple were scheduled to return to the United States – complaining of feeling ill.
But upon medical help arriving, Holmes reportedly refused to be treated.
