Today at approximately 0900 hours, Salinas Police Officers were detailed to the Motel 6 on Kern Street to conduct a welfare check on a female who had failed to respond to attempted contacts by a relative. Upon arrival, officers discovered a 30-year-old female deceased in the room. While there was nothing indicating she was the victim of violent crime, her death is considered suspicious as she had no known prior medical conditions. Salinas Police Detectives responded and, working with the CSI Unit, processed the scene in the event that it is later determined that a crime did, in fact, take place. We are currently awaiting autopsy results to make that determination. At this time, no further information, to include identification, will be released.
