A flight attendant from American Airlines was discovered in an unresponsive state, with an object in her mouth, at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott on Monday night, as reported by the police.
The incident unfolded around 10:40 p.m., with the 66-year-old woman found in her hotel room and pronounced deceased just five minutes later, according to Public Information Officer Shawn Richie.
The Philadelphia Police Homicide Detectives Division has taken on the investigation, as disclosed by the public information office, who also noted that no weapon was located at the scene.
Although there were no indications of forced entry, and the woman was under various medications, police are treating the situation as a suspicious death, as stated by Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small when speaking with media.
