Three Guests Found Dead at a Sandals Resort in the Bahamas
Officials are conducting autopsies to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the deaths of three Americans at a Sandals resort in the Bahamas. Three Americans who died last week at the Great Exuma Island resort were from Tennessee and Florida. A fourth American, the wife of the Florida man who died was airlifted to the nation’s capital of Nassau for treatment before being transferred stateside. A pathologist was slated to conduct autopsies yesterday according to Royal Bahamas Police Force Commissioner Paul Rolle and further information from those will be available at a later date. No foul play is suspected in the deaths and authorities are working on plans on sending the bodies home. Arrangements have also been made to hand over their belongings to their families in the United States.
According to a statement from police, authorities received a call on Friday shortly after 9 a.m. from staff that an unresponsive male was found in one of the villa resorts. While en route they were told an additional male and female were also found in another villa unresponsive, who were pronounced dead at the scene. According to Rolle, ‘the night prior, all four had reported feeling ill and were seen by medics.’ They were treated at different times and had eaten at different locations.
