The U.S. State Department says that a Maryland couple has been found dead in the Dominican Republic with several bottles of heart medication nearby.
According to a Daily Mail reports, Cynthia Day, 49, and Nathaniel Holmes, 63, checked in to the Bahía Príncipe Playa Nueva Romana on May 25 and were due to depart Thursday, the same day their bodies were discovered in a room reportedly with ‘no signs of violence.’
A hotel worker found the recently engaged couple, but it was not reported whether the bottles were empty.
Diario Libre reported that Dominican Republic’s National Police found in their investigation Holmes had called for a hotel doctor Thursday morning, complaining that he felt ill.
However, he reportedly refused medical care when they showed up.

At one point he wrote: ‘Can somebody please loan me $250,000 bcuz I don’t want to come home!!!!!’
They are the second American couple who have died in the Caribbean country since March.
