'Shark Tank' Star's Brother Died in Dominican Republic

Brother of Barbara Corcoran died in Dominican Republic hotel after drink

As a string of deaths of American tourists staying in the Dominican Republic have family members raising questions, Barbara Corcoran, a real estate mogul and Shark Tank star, revealed Tuesday that her brother died under eerily similar circumstances to six other Americans. "Barbara would like to respect the privacy of his children and is not releasing any other information at this time".

Corcoran, 60, was the owner of Statewide Roofing and Siding in Edgewater, N.J. but had retired. It is believed his death was the result of a heart attack.

According to TMZ, John, who visited the Dominican Republic frequently, was waiting for his girlfriend to join him on the vacation when a friend discovered his body in a hotel suite.

According to TMZ, Corcoran said her brother, John, traveled to D.R. with a friend in April.

Barbara did not insinuate in her interview with TMZ that her brother's death was suspicious. Barbara Corcoran was told that he succumbed to a heart attack, but no autopsy was performed, yahoo.com stated.

"We can confirm the death of a U.S. citizen in April 2019 in the Dominican Republic", the U.S. State Department told Fox News.

That may be a somewhat optimistic price-tag considering the Lyon skipper has just 12 months remaining on his current contract. Rangers are also interested but there would be questions over whether the Scottish club could meet Liverpool's asking price.

The report noted that the "FBI's involvement has marked the first public indications that officials in the USA and the Dominican Republic have considered the possibility of something other than natural causes".

The FBI is doing toxicology analysis, NPR says. However, the cause of the death of the sixth tourist remains unknown.

In the three most recent deaths, the victims' lungs filled with fluid and they died of respiratory failure. "But it's just a coincidence that it happened in the Dominican Republic like those other deaths".

In recent days, the family of a Pennsylvania woman who was vacationing in the Dominican Republic past year said she died in her room at the Bahia Principe Resort in Punta Cana after she had a drink from the minibar.

At least two of the tourist died after drinking from their hotel room minibars; a California man and a tourist from Pennsylvania, the New York Post said. He and his friend were staying at a "private home" that had no mini bar or "malfunctioning" air conditioning units, she told People.
