Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran's Brother Died in the D.R., But His Death Is Not a Mystery

There have been several mysterious deaths in the Dominican Republic over the past year and Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran just revealed that her brother recently died there.

Barbara told TMZ that her brother was in the D.R. with a friend back in April and that he died of a heart attack.

While there have been six mysterious tourist deaths in the country recently, John Corcoran’s daughter says that they have all the answers to how he died.

“My father had a heart condition, so his death didn’t come as a complete shock to us. Obviously, we didn’t expect him to die, and we are devastated. But it’s just a coincidence that it happened in the Dominican Republic like those other deaths,” Nichole Lande told People.

“They were staying at a private home,” she added. “There was no minibar, no malfunctioning air conditioner, nothing like the other cases. So this isn’t a mystery to us. It’s just the sad loss of a father and grandfather who everyone is missing right now. He was a loving, wonderful man from a big family, and lots of people are mourning his loss.”

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to the Corcoran family during this difficult time.
