FBI probing 'suspicious' death aboard cruise

The FBI is investigating the mysterious death of a 64-year-old woman aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

The woman, whose name was not released, was from Midlothian, Virginia. She was found dead by her husband in their cabin Sunday, the cruise line said.

"We look at any kind of suspicious death on the high seas," Special Agent Richard Wolf of the FBI's Baltimore field office said.

    I am sorry for this family's loss and really hope Royal Caribbean helps this family get some answers if her death was not from natural causes. I couldn't even get answers from this cruiseline when me and my traveling buddies were refused service in one of their dining rooms in January 2012 (the waiter was Caucasian, we are African American). After the Right to Sue letter was issued, the cruiseline quickly reverted back to their international incorporation, basically stating US legislation doesn't apply to them. We are now headed to arbitration. I hope this family fights and does not back down.
