AUTOPSY PERFORMED: Authorities one step closer to uncovering cause of American deaths at Sandals

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Authorities were one step closer yesterday to uncovering the cause of deaths of three Americans who were found in their villas along with one survivor at Sandals Emerald Bay on Exuma last Friday.

At the Office of the Prime Minister, Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper said autopsies of the guests had been performed, one of three reports needed to determine the cause of death.

It could take another three weeks, according to authorities, for the pathology and toxicology reports to be completed, with blood samples sent to Pennsylvania to expedite the process.

Minister of Health and Wellness Dr Michael Darville returned to Exuma with a team yesterday to further investigate the site, though the nature of those studies were not revealed.
