Canadian man, 81, stabbed in La Romana

A police spokesman in the Dominican Republic says an elderly Canadian man has been killed at his home in a resort town along the Caribbean coast.

Spokesman Nelson Rosario says 81-year-old John Verne Ward was found dead Wednesday from apparent stab wounds at his house on the outskirts of La Romana.

No suspects are in custody.

Ward’s hometown in Canada was unknown but authorities said he had been living in La Romana. His body was found by a friend and fellow Canadian.

At least five foreign visitors have been killed so far this year in different tourist zones of the Dominican Republic.
