Barbara Corcoran’s brother, John, died in his Dominican Republic hotel room, according to TMZ.
The Shark Tank star told the outlet that John visited the country with a friend in April. Barbara’s family was told he died of a heart attack on his vacation, but it is truly unknown what happened to John.
Barbara revealed that her brother’s friend discovered John’s body.
Barbara Corcoran says her brother had an “existing heart condition” that may have led to his death in the Dominican Republic.
The Shark Tank star said in a statement that she is “overwhelmed with sadness” over the loss of her brother, John, and all of the others who have died in the Dominican in recent months.
John was in his 60s and retired, though he owned a roofing company in New Jersey.
The mysterious tourist death total in the Dominican Republic continues to rise. There have been six reported deaths this past year, but there could be more.

10 kids, 1 bath. I’m 10 times blessed having grown up as 1 of 10 children. My mom taught us that every child had a special talent and we all had to pitch in if we were going to be a strong family. I later built a happy company 1000 people strong on those two simple principals. Happy #nationalsiblingday 👨👩👧👧
