Police are investigating after a person was found dead inside a room at an Oklahoma City motel.

Shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma City police responded to La Quinta Inn & Suites, 11500 W Interstate 40 Service Road, near Yukon, when a caller asked for someone to check on a relative in one of the rooms there. When police arrived, they discovered a person dead with body trauma consistent with homicide, police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

No arrests had been made Thursday. Police are interviewing possible witnesses.

“This is a busy location; lots of people coming and going,” Wardlow said. “We’re hopeful that someone out there will have a tip that will help us in this case.”

Wardlow said anyone with information should contact the homicide tip line at 297-1200.
