    Yes. The FBI took blood and tissue samples to the lab in Quantico, Virginia. Family members conducted their own independent testings.

    By now they must have received some of the results but haven't been made available to the general public yet.

    there is zero chance that a huge resort is going to let wood alcohol i.e : methanol into the resort for cheapening their beverage costs. One death would be financial suicide forever! If forensic toxicology discovered any trace of methyl we would know by now. Tainted alcohol is fake news

    What is your experience in the Hard Rock Punta Cana? Did you work there, do you know how the buying process works? Do you think there is any control like in the US in the buying of alcohol for 3 or 4 Thousand guests drinking for free? I can tell you from experience that there is none. They buy at the best price, a 10 percent discount can save Millions of Dollars.

    The Hotel does not want or expect fake alcohol. But when the bottles are the same and the alcohol is not, they cannot possibly check thousands of bottles going out to their guests.

    As a GM of a well known, large hotel in RD, did you knowingly purchase discounted alcohol which could have been fake or tainted?

    I was the GM in the Casino. I had nothing to do with any alcohol purchase both in the hotel and the Casino.

    Tell the Truth now .. you just MADE THAT UP...didnt you

    OR show us the Math, with the $$ Volume and how the 10% would save $ Millions . that is $1,000,000 + USD , and over what period of Time ..

    I would love to see that math. or a Booze bill of $10 MILLION Dollars +

Sending children home to be with relatives during June to August is very common as well.
    Have you vacationed recently in Punta Cana?
    I know people with hard numbers on cancellations and yes, I have been in these AI's many times. The cancellation numbers are staggering. 10's of thousands of room nights went POOF.

    Tourism was decimated by the negative PR. See above post. An uptick at Cibao could not possibly make up for the staggering losses.
