The Royal Bahama Police Force stated they found one of the male victims in a room at the resort lying on the floor and found no apparent signs of a cause of death. They found the second male victim in another room, “slumped against a wall.” Officers also found a female victim lying in bed in that room. Authorities noted it appeared they “showed signs of convulsions.”
ABC News reported Dr. Michael Darville, the Minister of Health and Wellness, said two of the victims sought care the previous night for vomiting and nausea, but the staff at the clinic treated and released them. Darville told the outlet there is no health hazard and that this event appears isolated. He said no other visitors at the resort are at risk, and authorities don’t expect foul play.
ABC News spoke with Austin Chiarella, who said one of the male victims was his father, Vincent Chiarella. His mother, Donnis Chiarella, is the surviving woman. She returned to Florida via air ambulance on May 7.
