Police Investigating Dead Body Found at Pasco Motel

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- Pasco police are investigating a possible homicide at a Lewis Street motel.

Police said housekeeping maids found a dead body inside a room at the Tahitian Inn along the 2800 block of West Lewis Street around ten Tuesday morning.

Police said the scene looked suspicious and described the room in disarray.

They said it appears a fire happened inside the room at some point, but they aren't sure when.

Detectives were called in to investigate, but police say it's too soon to know how the person was killed.

Officers said it's a troubled area and the strange nature of the case leads them to believe foul play was involved.

"Things just don't look right. So at this point we are investigating it as a homicide until we determine something different," said Capt. Jim Raymond, Pasco Police Department.

Currently there are no suspects in the case and police spent much of the day processing the crime scene.
