Motel Death

Posted on 27th December 2013 at 16:58

Longview Police are looking into the death of a man, found yesterday afternoon in one of the rooms at the Economy Inn Motel on Hemlock Street. Motel staff called 911 at about 5:15 yesterday afternoon, reporting that a 65 year-old man had been found deceased in his room. At that time, the staff was speculating that the man had fallen and broken his neck. Officers responded, along with the Cowlitz County Coroner’s Office. They checked the scene over, and then removed the body. At this time, there don’t appear to be any signs of a crime or other foul play. An autopsy is planned; the man’s name has not yet been released.
