"Shark Tank" judge Barbara Corcoran's brother died in April in the Dominican Republic, a death now questioned as mysterious. "Barbara would like to respect the privacy of his children and is not releasing any other information at this time".
John Corcoran's death has made headlines amid news that world health officials are investigating numerous hotels in the Dominican Republic after the deaths of several American tourists during stays in the country. It is believed his death was the result of a heart attack.
The millionaire investor, 70, told TMZ on Wednesday that her brother John died suddenly while on vacation in the Dominican Republic and was found in his hotel suite by a friend.
Although Corcoran was told her brother died of a heart attack, she said no one knows exactly what happened since there's been no autopsy. "She calls him "my favorite brother" among her 9 siblings and says he had a larger-than-life personality and would have been great on TV". It is not yet known which hotel he was staying in.
There have been a number of mysterious deaths of US citizens in the Dominican Republic in recent months, and people are questioning whether John's death is linked.
