Maryland Couple Found Dead At Dominican Republic Resort Died Due To Respiratory Failure, Police Say A Prince George's County couple found dead in their room at a resort in the Dominican Republic died due to respiratory failure, the country's national police said Sunday. Dominican Today reports that the Edward Nathael Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found at the Bahia Principle Hotel at the resort of Playa Nueva Romana on the southeast coast. An autopsy performed on the couple showed both had respiratory failure and pulmonary edema, police said. Police found several bottles of high blood pressure medications inside their room. Reports say that there is no evidence of violence in relation to their death.

The bodies of the recently engaged couple from Prince George's County have been returned to the DMV-area, family lawyer Steven Bullock confirmed Tuesday.

Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 50, of Upper Marlboro, were found dead in their hotel room at the Bahia Principe in the Dominican Republic after they failed to check out of their room on time.

Police in the Dominican Republic said an autopsy show the couple died of respiratory failure and fluid build up in their lungs.

Authorities also claimed to have found high blood pressure medication found in their hotel room.

Police found no signs of foul play and called it a coincidence that both of them died at the same time from the same cause.

The family of Holmes and Day said they are planning to have a second autopsy done in the United States to determine the cause of death, according to Bullock.

Last week officials confirmed another woman died mysteriously at the same hotel where Holmes and Day stayed.
