He found out Schaup-Werner had died from the news, he said.

The testing at the Dominican resorts comes as the CDC also is conducting an investigation into the deaths of a USA couple who died from an as-yet underdetermined cause while on vacation in Fiji last month. Five days after her death, 63-year-old Edward Holmes and 49-year-old Cynthia Day were discovered after failing to check out of their room at a sister resort called the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.

According to a statement from the hotel, Schaup-Werner was staying at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, which is at the same resort as the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana and shares the same phone number. Officials say they refused care when the doctor showed up at their door. The pair was celebrating a wedding anniversary. She later collapsed, and died shortly after.

During the last week of May, a Black couple was found dead in their hotel room.

The FBI is now involved, working with local authorities in the Dominican Republic to try to determine what caused the recent deaths of the tourists.

Colorado couple Kaylynn Knull, 29, and Tom Schwander, 33, say they became ill last summer while staying in the resort. Police said there was no evidence of violence in their room.

Three days before they were found dead, they went on an excursion to Saona Island, according to Bahia Principe.

The popular five-star resorts have made worldwide headlines following the news of the USA tourists' deaths, which friends and relatives have characterized as suspicious, saying that they exhibited no signs of health problems.

The pair visited last summer but took ill in the middle of the night.

"Litigation went nowhere. Stories are being squashed", she wrote in her Facebook post.
