This undated photo, courtesy of the Brignoni family and posted to the instagram account belonging to Beverly Brignoni, shows a selfie she took at an unknown location. Brignoni was a young New Yorker seeking a less expensive way to enhance her appearance and she did what many other people are now doing: travel to the Dominican Republic for cosmetic surgery. It went horribly wrong. The 28-year-old died Feb. 20, 2014 from what the doctor told her family was a massive pulmonary embolism while getting a tummy tuck and liposuction at a clinic in the Dominican capital recommended by friends. Family members have serious questions about her death and want local authorities to investigate. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Brignoni Family)
