InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) Americas CEO Elie Maalouf told FOX that there is nothing to fear, "We have three hotels in the Dominican Republic". Following a slew of American tourist deaths in resorts throughout the country, the questions began piling up.

Here's what we know so far.

The victim is the ninth American to die in the Dominican Republic within the past year and a half, according to NBC News.

Over the past year, at least eight Americans have died while on vacation in the Dominican Republic.

"In the last five years, over 30 million tourists have visited the Dominican Republic, but this is the first time the global media report such an alarming situation", Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia said earlier this month.

Miranda Schaup-Werner died at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville on May 25, just days before Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and his wife Cynthia Day, 49, died at a different hotel owned by the same company, the Advance previously reported. He is the eight tourist to die in the country since a year ago but hotels insist there is nothing to fear. Family members told WKYC in OH that 78-year-old Jerry Curran, a retiree who lived in Florida, died in January after falling ill on the island.

Allen is the most recent confirmed tourist death in the country since Leyla Cox, 53, the Staten Islander who died on June 10 while on vacation for her birthday. Her death was also ruled to be a heart attack.

Joseph Allen of Avenel, New Jersey, was found dead in his hotel room at Terra Linda in Sosua, a beach town in the Dominican Republic, on the morning of June 13, ABC 7 reported. Reed added, "The families need answers". He was staying at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana. Dominican officials said his cause of death was a heart attack and pulmonary edema, or fluid build-up in the lungs.

Before she could leave the resort, she says, she had to pay multiple bills - the hotel doctor, the ambulance, the hospital, the funeral home and more.

She described her brother as "for the most part healthy" with no pertinent health issues.

"Cheerful, welcoming and hospitable, our Dominican Republic, the economy that grows the most in America, with its attractive beaches and mountains, its tasty gastronomy and hardworking people invites you to know and love it", he said in a tweet last week.

In the United States, comprehensive toxicology results are usually available in approximately two weeks, according to Laura Labay, a forensic toxicologist and director of toxicological services at NMS Labs in Pennsylvania.

"If they determine some sort of negligence then, we'll go from there to see if there's any action to be taken", the travel agent said. They kept telling me that it would be considerably cheaper to cremate him. A couple from Colorado - 29-year-old Kaylynn Knull and 33-year-old Tom Schwander - told CNN they got terribly sick during a visit to the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana in June of last year. The couple is reportedly suing their resort for $1M.

According to ABC, Allen's sister Jamie Reed said friends had "complained about being hot at the pool". Holmes had an enlarged heart and cirrhosis of the liver - both signs of significant pre-existing disease, the Dominican authorities said, and Day also had fluid in her brain.

The hotel did a wellness check and found him dead on the floor.

The hotel gave the cause of death as heart attack, citing a forensics report.
