"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.
