A young Texas couple died of a mysterious illness while enjoying an "amazing vacation" in Fiji, according to their family.

The deaths of an American couple who became ill while vacationing in Fiji late last month are being investigated by health officials on the South Pacific Island, with help from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, authorities said Tuesday. They loved to travel.

"They were planning an wonderful vacation", said Tracey Calanog, Michelle Paul's sister-in-law.

The family members revealed David and Michelle seemed to be suffering from some kind of virus, which was strong enough to debilitate two young and healthy people.

It's believed the couple from Fort Worth had been planning their "amazing vacation" to Fiji for quite some time, leaving behind their two-year-old son and a daughter from David Paul's previous relationship with family in the U.S. for the two week trip.

Michelle was a former college athlete and David was an Air Force veteran, so both were "very physically fit", Tracey Calanog, Michelle's sister-in-law told KVUE, making their case even more confusing.

Kellyanne Conway, the president's counselor, sat with the Queen's youngest son Prince Edward, U.S. He too noted, with disdain: "That's right, the Queen's gift to Donald Trump was a book".

They said Michelle died first, and David died before he could be airlifted to Australia for treatment.

Fiji's health ministry said it was also working with the country's police forensics department and the World Health Organization to determine the cause of death.

"They were planning an fantastic vacation", Calanog told KVUE.

Fijian media outlet FBC News reported post-mortem results confirmed the deaths were the cause of an illness, and that samples have been sent overseas for further testing.

The sister-in-law said the two can not be returned to the United States until a cause of death is determined.

The U.S. Embassy in Fiji would not comment on the deaths but confirmed the Fijian government had issued a warning about a unsafe flu season that was affecting the region. "We know Michelle and David are with us in Zooey".
