A neighbor - who was cat sitting for Cox while she vacationed - said he found out about her death on Wednesday.

By last count, six tourists had died under mysterious circumstances in the Dominican Republic over the a year ago or so, and now there's a seventh and an eighth.

Alex Morgan sets a scoring record and shakes World Cup
Critics jumped on the US for running up the score and celebrating late goals when the game had already been decided. Alex Morgan's five goals tied her with fellow American Michelle Akers for most goals in a single World Cup match.

"With everything going on in the news right now, we think she's a casualty of what's been happening", he added.

His mom's coworker posted a tribute on Facebook. I want the world to know, that another US Citizen passed away in this vacation destination, that as far as I know is not being held accountable for the past transgressions.

It is not immediately clear if the Federal Bureau of Investigation will conduct the analysis on Leyla Cox, 53, a New Brighton resident whose sudden death came to light after the statement was issued.

In the meantime, her son William is trying to figure out how to bring his mother's body back home.

In addition to the deaths, people have said they fell ill after consuming liquor from their hotel mini-bar, according to the New York Post. "Our own toxicology report would cost copious amounts of money".
