    FBI has results. (Deaths by natural causes)

    https://thepointsguy.com/news/deaths...335a6-46653237

    as much as many do not like the DR........this situation hurt them deeply...........many tourist dollars were unspent in the DR and were spent elsewhere.

    Aruba was "buried" for a number of months during the Natalee Holloway disappearance.
    the whole island was punished as a result..........worse situation than the DR........but kind of the same.

    while the DR will recover financially, lots of potential tourists will think about "death" and will take a "pass"

    Sorry, don't buy it. And the deaths didn't affect my decisions on the DR. My husband wanted to go years ago and I said I go no place where they tell you not to leave the resort. That was one of the choices on the debate of our first trip to Aruba. I said no way am I going there. Everyone I knew who went said its nice, just as long as you don't leave the resort. Duh, and there is the robot saying "danger will robinson"...When I am in Aruba, I not only can go anywhere, I can go alone anywhere. Its a no brainer.
