Three Americans died of unknown causes Friday at a Sandals resort on the Bahamas’ Great Exuma island, and police are investigating, officials said.

Two men and a woman died at the resort, and a fourth American — a woman — was airlifted to a hospital in Nassau, the Bahamas’ capital, Bahamian Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper said Friday.

Though police are investigating, Cooper has been “advised that foul play is not suspected,” he said.

No signs of trauma were found on the bodies, the Royal Bahamas Police Force said in a statement to CNN.

Preliminary reports indicate that the bodies were found unresponsive in two different locations; a man was found first in one villa with no signs of trauma, and the couple in a second villa, police said in the statement issued on Saturday.

The couple complained of illness the previous evening, according to the report.

“The officers found a Caucasian male slumped against a wall in a bathroom, unresponsive,” the Royal Bahamas Police Force said. “The woman was also unresponsive. Both individuals showed signs of convulsion. The officers examined the bodies and found no signs of trauma.”

The police will wait for an autopsy report to determine the exact cause of death, adding that for now “this matter remains under active investigation.”
