PD: Body found at Tempe motel, death suspicious

TEMPE, AZ - Tempe police are investigating after a body was found in a motel room Saturday.

Tempe police Lt. Michael Pooley said detectives are at a Motel 6 on Scottsdale Road near McKellips Road.

He said he is unsure where in the room the body was found, but the death appears suspicious.

The victim has been described as a man in his 60s.

Police say the room wasn't kept neat, so it is unclear whether there was a struggle.

Other people at the hotel told police they saw the victim talking to another man, but police say that man left the scene.

Police said the victim may have been dead between 24 and 48 hours.

No other details were available Saturday night.
