Vacationers who recently traveled to the Sandals Bahamas resort area where three Americans were found dead last week say they complained about the ‘strong smell’ of insecticide there, according to a new report on Tuesday .
These complaints from guests of the Sandals Emerald Bay resort in Great Exuma have since been forwarded to local investigators, NBC News reporting.
The deceased were identified Monday as Michael Phillips, 68, and Robbie Phillips, 65, of Tennessee, and Vincent Chiarella, 64, of Florida. Donnis Chiarella, Vincent’s wife, is said to be in stable condition after being airlifted to a Miami hospital over the weekend.

An autopsy is still underway after the bodies were discovered on Friday, and the findings of a toxicology report should be available next week, according to Paul Rolle, chief superintendent of the Royal Bahamas Police Force.
Michael and Robbie Phillips were co-owners of a travel business called The Sand Lady of Royal Travel and are survived by their three children and six grandchildren.
“Our hearts are grieving and broken but full of hope. We know our mom and dad experience a fullness of joy in the presence of our Heavenly Father,” the family said in a statement to media on Monday. “We miss them terribly already. Our parents left a legacy of faith in Jesus and generously loved their family and friends.”

The insecticide smell claims come after a Delaware family of four became critically ill in 2015 after they were accidentally poisoned by exterminators using a banned pesticide at a luxury resort in the US Virgin Islands.
Sandals, when asked to comment on the report by Fox News Digital on Tuesday, did not immediately respond.
