The Bahamian authorities have facilitated a request from the families of the three Americans who died at Sandals Emerald Bay earlier this month to have a pathologist from overseas perform an independent autopsy.
Minister of Health, Dr. Michael Darville, told reporters that the government is trying to ascertain the cause of death as soon as possible.
He said investigations are ongoing at the Sandals resort.
Dr. Darville disclosed that the toxicology reports are still outstanding.
Police Commissioner Paul Rolle said a team of forensic investigators from the Royal Bahamas Police Force travelled to the US over the weekend to transport samples taken from the bodies and the sole survivor to a laboratory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to expedite the results.
