Barbara Corcoran‘s brother was found dead in his hotel room in the Dominican Republic, and the circumstances sound eerily familiar to the 6 mysterious tourist deaths in the country over the past year … TMZ has learned.
The “Shark Tank” star tells us her brother, John, was in the D.R. with a friend in April on his yearly vacation when he died of a heart attack. At least, that’s what she was told. As far as she knows, there’s been no autopsy.
Barbara says her brother’s friend — who was staying in the same suite — discovered the body, but nobody knows exactly what happened.
Corcoran tells us John was retired but owned a successful roofing company in New Jersey. She calls him “my favorite brother” among her 9 siblings and says he had a larger-than-life personality and would have been great on TV.
We’re told John loved visiting the Dominican Republic and was awaiting the arrival of his girlfriend before he died. There’s been no funeral yet, but a memorial service is planned soon.
