The three deaths at Grand Bahia Principe Hotel La Romana are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Thirty members of the family took off for the Dominican Republic to be in place for Tickenoff's wedding on April 14.

'We offer our sincerest condolences to the family for their loss. She posted photos of her bruised and swollen face on Facebook.

"We ask everyone to be patient while these investigations run their course", the statement reads. The couple were scheduled to return to the US that day.

It is not clear if a second autopsy will be performed on Day and Holmes. Three of the dead people have been confirmed to all have arrived on May 25 at seaside resorts in San Pedro de Macoris in the south of the Caribbean country.

Essentially, this means that the last three months have seen 60 more reported illnesses on the island than in the entire year of 2018.

Holmes and Day, who were engaged to be married, were found dead on May 30 in their room at the resort.

He died three days later, however, authorities failed to give a cause of death.

Authorities in the Dominican Republic have yet to determine what triggered the fatal symptoms in the couple at approximately the same time and are awaiting the results of toxicology and histopathology tests.

Five days later, Maryland couple Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63 and Cynthia Day, 49, were found unresponsive in their hotel room at the same resort.

A preliminary autopsy for Schaup-Werner showed she suffered from a heart attack, pulmonary edema and respiratory failure.

The family was in the Dominican Republic for Ticknoff's wedding.

So far Investigators say there are no medical connections to link the deaths. In a June 7 statement, the Bahia Principe said it has a "firm commitment to collaborate completely with the authorities and hope for a prompt resolution". He was in the Dominican Republic vacationing, according to his obituary, which said he died "unexpectedly".

Their bodies did not show signs of violence, USA Today reports. No other drugs were found.

U.S. State Department officials have issued a travel advisory for American tourists heading to the DR, telling vacationers to exercise "increased caution".

"We didn't find out until the next morning that he had passed, which is another weird thing", Tickenhoff, Wallace's son-in-law, told FOX40. If that timeline holds, they should be done by the end of June.

Harrison went to sleep after getting sick; when he woke up, he was sweating profusely, McCoy told WTOP. They said they were also drooling excessively and their eyes would not stop watering.

After returning home, Knull and Schwander were examined by their doctor who told them they likely experienced poisoning from organophosphate, a form of insecticide, which Knull said she believes was being used on plants around the resort.

Resort officials did not respond to ABC News' request for comment on the couple's claims.
