The Dominican Republic resort where a Delaware woman claims she was brutally beaten and left for dead has temporarily closed due to low occupancy, according to Delaware Online.
Tammy Lawrence-Daley, 51, shared a now-viral Facebook post in May saying she had been attacked while staying at the Majestic Elegance Punta Cana resort in January.
The post, which included gruesome photos of Lawrence-Daley’s battered face, described an attack by an unknown man who she said choked her repeatedly, kicked her in the head and dragged her down a flight of stairs. Lawrence-Daley said the assault occurred while she was walking in a rotunda between two of the hotel’s buildings.
