Just after 1 p.m. Tuesday officials from The Ramada Motel in the 9100 block of Baltimore Avenue in College Park requested Prince George's County Police and Fire Department to check on the welfare of a woman in one of their rooms.
"When patrol units arrived on the scene they found an adult female in her 20s dead inside a motel room on the top floor of the two-story motel," said Julie Parker, spokesperson for Prince George's County Police. "At this time we are calling it a death investigation."
Parker said the body will be taken to the medical examiner's office in Baltimore to determine the cause of death.
