The two had three children between each other.

Punta Cana is a town at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic and touches the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The spot is known for its beaches and lavish resorts.

Arnold said her uncle was a well-traveled man and was in good health at the time of his death. For most of his career, Wallace owned Wallace Construction in Turlock, and had built many apartment and condominium projects. He was also a rancher.

The FBI and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed that they are probing the mysterious deaths at resorts in the country. Within five days, three USA tourists died in their rooms at hotels owned by the Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts group, a different hotel chain than where McCoy and her husband stayed.

"He was fine", Arnold said.

"He started feeling very sick, he had blood in his urine and stool right afterward", Arnold said, adding that she and other relatives were confused by the circumstances surrounding Wallace's death. The hotel doctor advised him to go to the hospital two days later, and he died the next day. Both causes of death happened to be related to "hemorrhaging, pulmonary edema and enlarged hearts", The Washington Post reports.

Levine said she and a friend were planning to stay at one of the resorts where Americans died.

"We were either going to lose all our money or we were going to get to go somewhere else".

'We offer our sincerest condolences to the family for their loss.

On top of a sort of sudden-death syndrome at Dominican resorts - liquor consumed at hotel minibars is a primary suspect - the shooting of former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz Sunday night outside a Santo Domingo club has focused new attention on violence in his homeland.

Edward Holmes and Cynthia Day, an engaged couple from Maryland, died in their rooms at the Bahia Principe La Romana resort on May 30.

So far Investigators say there are no medical connections to link the deaths. Miranda Schaup-Werner, a Pennsylvania woman, died nearly four weeks later, on May 25, after she had a drink from her minibar at another hotel, the Bahia Principe La Romana. As for Schaup-Werner, Dominican officials said she had a heart attack, but her brother-in-law, Jay McDonald, insisted she died of respiratory failure and had drank from the bar. "My husband's story needs to be told. something's not right in the Dominican Republic".

Harrison, McCoy, and their 12-year-old son had been staying at the same Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana that Wallace was staying at. "We reiterate our firm commitment to cooperate fully with the authorities and we expect a quick resolution of your consultations and actions, and we will not make any other statements that could interfere with them".
