NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 23: Mark Cuban, Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran speak onstage at the Tribeca Talks Panel: 10 Years Of "Shark Tank" during the 2018 Tribeca TV Festival at Spring Studios on September 23, 2018 in New York City. (Photo by Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images)

This is so sad.

The brother of “Shark Tank” judge Barbara Corcoran is among the American tourists who have mysteriously died while vacationing in the Dominican Republic. The ABC reality show star says her brother Jonathan, a retired New Jersey businessman, was found dead in his hotel room in April. Although Corcoran was told her brother had suffered a heart attack, she says she doesn’t believe an autopsy was performed.

The revelation brings the official body count to seven, all of whom died in their hotel rooms under mysterious circumstances. In all cases, the victims’ families have said their loved ones were in good health prior to their trips. Both the FBI and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have launched investigations.
