On November 4, 2017 at about 6:08 a.m., police visited the North Side of Hopkins Village where they observed the motionless body of a  male person face down in water about 3 feet from the beach. The body was identified to be that of 67-year-old Paul Panarese, a U.S. national.

Initial investigation revealed that on the previous evening, Panarese left to socialize and around 6:45 p.m., he headed back to the direction of Kismet Inn where his body was discovered. No signs of violence have been observed on the body. The body awaits postmortem examination.

Later on November 4, 2017, police visited Naia Resort in Placencia where the motionless body of 69-year-old Robert Lotz was seen. Lotz, a retired US national, was on vacation and went kayaking earlier that morning and did not return. His body was later discovered floating in the sea. Like in the case of Panarese, no signs of violence were observed on the body. The body awaits postmortem examination.
