It's probably counterfeit alcohol. This happened in Mexico a while back where tourists were dropping dead from drinking tainted fake vodka and shit.
Also there is a crazy serial killer working one of the resorts which is probably unrelated: https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2019/06/11/lawyers-dominican-republic-attack-victim-accuse-resort-victim-blaming/1408450001/

Wow what a mystery

but /trv/ told me it's safe and they are noble primitives who love tourists and I'm not a realtraveler for not going there

Dominican Rep is not real traveller, it's a resort destinations receiving millions of mostly old white visitors each year

what does this post even mean

They where all black themselves though

Whats funny is that these seem to be happening at fancy all inclusive resorts where you dont venture off because "its dangerous". Does this shit happen at regular bars? I briefly considered going to the DR but Id stay in town somewhere and not at a Sandals resort. If a country is too dangerous for me to walk around outside a hotel in then I wouldn't bother going period.

I cant wait to have my super boomer dad tell me about this this weekend because the world is scary.

That American woman was raped recently staying at an exclusive resort. The rapist thought he’d killed her and dumped her body on a garbage pile.

Resorts give off a false sense of security. The only resort I'd ever feel completely safe in is a Cuban one.

NY Post was claiming tainted alcohol today. Honestly counterfit alcohol could be the cause but does methanol really kill you that quickly? Couldn't they just have had coke cut with Strychnine or something?
>>
>>1614190
Sandals would be the place to stay. All these folks stayed at the same brand (much smaller ownership group)
>>
fuck the DR. That is the only place ive ever gone and hated

I was mugged by every dude i met and my girlfriend was whistled at by tons of dudes. Even people working at our resort straight up did not give a fuck. I almost fought one of the employees too. I will never return to that shit hole

You should go to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.

My dad did this and couldn't even recall the name of the town he flew into because it was so cut off from the rest of the island. They've got a cool water slide, if you're into creepy shit like that.

Why didn't you pimp her out to earn back the money?

Kidding that's something you have to live with when traveling. In Morocco someone reached up my gf's shirt and fondled her boobs she screamed at him and threw bread at his head but he ran off into the Medina when I came out. Can't really blame him though, she has 34FF, so compared to most of the covered up chestlets he saw that was probably a once in a lifetime treat for him.

He flew into Nassau, which is the capitol city

It means containment boards leak.
>>
>>1615278
Depends on the concentration. I would tend to doubt that accidental contamination would produce the number and pattern of cases we've seen. If it is methanol, I'd suspect it is product tampering.

>drinking alcohol
Typical chem-cucked boomers
>>
>>1614169
No, not all of them.

>>1614077
Used to be a hotbed for prostitution. I guess it went upmarket.

>>1615278
Methanol doesn't usually kill you at all. It just makes you go blind. Unless you drink an absolute shitload of it.

Maybe isopropyl would kill you, I dunno. I got a tiny little bit in my mouth one time while cleaning a cut on my lip and had the worst headache ever from it.

Why are water slides creepy?
