Salinas police say they’re investigating a suspicious death after finding a woman’s body at a hotel Thursday.
Officers went to the Motel 6 on Kern Street at about 9 a.m. after a woman’s family asked police to check on her because she wasn’t returning relatives’ messages, Salinas police said in a press release.
When they arrived, they found the 30-year-old dead in the room, police said. They said nothing points toward violence, but they’re treating it as suspicious because she had no known medical conditions.
Salinas police detectives, however, arrived and along with crime scene technicians, analyzed the scene as
