The death of William Carrow in the Dominican Republic brings many disturbing testimonies

After receiving several disturbing testimonies from people believed to have taken drugs in the Dominican Republic, the mother of a 25-year-old Quebecer who died mysteriously last January wants to warn travelers.

“People should be careful. It tells me that there are hidden things out there,” laments Sylvie Margot, William Garrow's mother.

William and his brother-in-law were apparently intoxicated after drinking at the hotel bar.

Paranoia and motivation

from, Newspaper They collected half a dozen reports of concern from vacationers who said they had experienced similar episodes over the years.

Confusion, paranoia, the urge to throw yourself off a balcony, vomiting, memory loss, extreme fatigue: the symptoms described send shivers down your spine.

That's what 55-year-old Claude Desserault says, as his son and son-in-law drank in the bar of a nearby hotel one evening in January 2023.

“They were wandering. My son had to be taken care of. He wanted to throw himself out of the window. He seemed stubborn,” says the Trois-Rivières resident, who has never seen his 23-year-old elder like this.

John Peristo, a 51-year-old Ontarian, admitted to acting strangely like William in 2019 at Ambar.

“I ran for my life, naked, thinking I was being chased by the cartel,” he says.

Just one mirror

Elaine Jobin is also convinced that she and her daughter's friend were drunk there a year ago.

A 63-year-old woman has taken a bath after drinking and vomiting.

“When I read about William, it tore my heart out. It could have been one of us,” she says worriedly.

Also, a 56-year-old man from Brossart would have lost his life in almost identical circumstances in November 2021, still in Ambar.

“He screamed for help on the porch like William. Then he jumped from the first-floor balcony into the swimming pool,” whispers his 32-year-old niece, who wants to keep her identity a secret for personal reasons and believes her uncle was poisoned.

He says he is still shocked by the lack of cooperation from local authorities.

With these testimonies, Sylvie Margot is now convinced that her son William did not do anything voluntary. She says she's relieved, but wants to shed light on her child's death more than ever. She now relies on the help of a lawyer and private investigators.
