I saw a story a few hours ago about an American named Thomas Gene Hope found naked and hanging from a tree in Cabarete near the cemetery. Has anyone heard anything about this story? He was a 55 year old Caucasian male. From what is being reported, it looks like a suicide, but why would someone hang themselves naked? Makes no sense at all. If there is any info I would appreciate boot on the ground intel. If this was a crime, then tourism will take another hit for sure. Punta Cana is already suffering.
