Regarding the events, the ministerial authorities, through the Office of Social Communication, reported they have started an investigation, 2219/2013, into the death of Sydney Taylor, 21-years old, which was accidental, and as of the moment have taken the testimony of three people who were with the deceased, her roommate and two others who were travelling with her.
These people indicated that along with the deceased, they went to the "Daddy-O," where they consumed a quantity of alcoholic beverages until the deceased started to feel ill. So they returned to the hotel Gran Caribe, located on bulevar Kikilcán, at kilometer 11.5 in the Hotel Zone, where they were staying.
