PD: Tempe motel death not a homicide

TEMPE, AZ - Police in Tempe say there are no signs of foul play in the death of a man whose body was found inside a motel room.

Det. Jaime Garibay says police were called Saturday afternoon after the man, who is in his 60s, was found unresponsive inside a Motel 6 on Scottsdale Road near McKellips Road.

Garibay says the man's death is not being treated as a homicide and the cause is still being investigated.

Witnesses told police they saw a man running from the area.

Garibay says detectives have since determined that man was running from an arrest warrant that was unrelated to the death.

Police are not releasing the deceased man's name.
