“Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran has revealed that her brother has been found dead in a Dominican Republic hotel!
Barbara Corcoran, known for being a shark on ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank” has shared her brother John was found dead in his hotel room in the Dominican Republic back in April.
His death makes seven total tourist deaths in the D.R. all being called mysterious.
Corcoran who says John was her favorite brother out of 9 siblings shared that he was there on vacation, which he did often, awaiting his girlfriend.
Barbara says her brother’s friend — who was staying in the same suite — discovered the body, but nobody knows exactly what happened, but the family is being told it was due to a heart attack.
While that may sound like a natural cause of death, the other deaths in D.R. hotel rooms have a similar story.
Two deaths were reported at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, and 4 at various Bahia Principe resorts. Three of the deaths were also listed as heart attacks while one was listed as pulmonary edema which is an accumulation of fluid in the lungs.
In May, a couple from Maryland was found in their hotel room said to have also died from respiratory failure and pulmonary edema.
There have been reports of mold smells coming through hotel vents as well as poisoning in the drinks located in their rooms mini bar. However, there has been no link to those complaints and the deaths.
As of now, there is no word as to what hotel Barbara’s brother was staying, or if he had anything from his room’s minibar.
We will keep Barbara and her family in our thoughts and prayers.
