Pa. Woman Found Dead At Dominican Republic Resort

Dominican Republic Officials Cast Doubt on American Woman’s Story of Brutal Assault

Majestic Resorts in the Dominican Republic

Majestic Resorts says a hotel staff member stayed at the hospital with Lawrence-Daley and the resort paid for all of her hospital expenses. She also partially lost her hearing due to the attack. A man wearing a resort uniform grabbed her, beginning a brutal eight-hour encounter that almost ended her life, she wrote. Police said there was no evidence of violence in their room. "My husband's story needs to be told. something's not right in the Dominican Republic". Majestic said it was cooperating with law enforcement's investigation.

"Violent crime, including armed robbery, homicide and sexual assault, is a concern throughout the Dominican Republic", a State Department official told the Trib, adding the U.S. Embassy is monitoring the investigations of the Americans' deaths by Dominican authority. "T$3 hat not only affects Majestic Resorts, but also tourism for the entire Dominican Republic".

The testing is the first public indication that officials in the USA and the Dominican Republic are considering the possibility that something other than natural causes - which the Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts group, the Spain-based owner of the properties where the deaths occurred, has tried to stress - could have led to the three deaths, which happened in the short span of five days. A newly-engaged couple from Prince George's County who were mysteriously found dead in their hotel room at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana on May 30.

McDonald said she was treated for a heart condition 15 years ago but had not had more recent issues. The attack left her so badly disfigured that her husband, Chris Daley, could hardly recognize her through the cuts, blood and black eyes, she said.

The three deaths in May happened a few months after a vehicle crash in the Dominican Republic killed two other Americans. He is still out there, a predator, waiting for his next victim. "Only the next woman may not be so fortunate".

In its statement, the resort cast doubt on Lawrence-Daley's version of events. She had her cellphone and purse with her.

The paramedics were called, and they tried to revive her, but Schaup-Werner died in her room.

She said her attacker - dressed in the resort's uniform - grabbed her from behind, straggled, kicked, beat and tossed her body in an underground wastewater area.

Norman de Castro, one of the hotel's lawyers, told The Washington Post that Lawrence-Daley declined to cooperate with a criminal investigation into the case, including refusing to sign a complaint. When hotel employees checked on them, they were dead, police said.
