FBI probing the ‘suspicious death’ of a woman on a Carnival cruise ship


On Sunday, the FBI issued a news release revealing that they are investigating the “suspicious death” of a female passenger who was aboard the Carnival Sunshine cruise ship, CNN reported.

The FBI field office in Columbia, South Carolina reported that the woman was discovered unresponsive during the Carnival Sunshine cruise ship’s voyage to Nassau, Bahamas on February 27th.

Despite the medical staff and crew’s efforts to save her life upon discovering she was unresponsive, the woman was declared dead on the Carnival Sunshine cruise ship by the FBI, as reported by CNN.

“Both the deceased and her husband were debarked in Nassau and Bahamian authorities have already investigated the circumstances and are conducting an autopsy,” Carnival Cruise Line spokesperson Matt Lupoli said in a statement to CNN. 

“We are fully cooperating. This is a matter for authorities in the Bahamas and Charleston and we have no further comments,” said Lupoli.

According to the FBI, the matter is still being investigated.
