A woman was discovered dead in a cruise ship cabin and it is being investigated by the FBI as ‘suspicious’.
The woman was found unresponsive aboard the Carnival Sunshine that departed Charleston, South Carolina, for the Bahamas on February 27.
Upon hearing about the woman, cruise ship medical staff and other workers ‘immediately attempted life-saving measures’, stated a spokesperson from the FBI’s field office in Columbia, South Carolina, on Sunday.
‘Despite their efforts, the passenger was pronounced deceased on the ship,’ the FBI spokesperson stated.
On Saturday, the ship returned to Charleston and the FBI went through the deceased passenger’s cabin searching for evidence.
‘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 told CNN.
‘We are fully cooperating. This is a matter for authorities in the Bahamas and Charleston and we have no further comments.’
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
The FBI investigates suspicious deaths of US nationals and ‘certain crimes on the high seas’, the agency stated.
