The Salem Police Department is investigating a death of a woman whose body was found in a hotel on Tuesday night.
Officers responded to the Days Inn Black Bear Inn at 1600 Motor Court Northeast at around 11:00 p.m. to conduct a welfare check on a guest staying at the hotel.
When police didn't get a response from the guest at the door, they entered the room and found a body.
A guest at the hotel, Don Bodin, told FOX 12 that he feels for anyone that knew the woman.
“Heart has to go out to the family of whoever it was, and herself," Bodin said "What led her here and caused this to happen? I don’t have any idea what the circumstances are, but it’s sad."

Police said they still do not know who the woman was and have not released any other information.
"At this point, we’ve backed off and we’re being very careful and very deliberate in our investigation of the scene to see exactly what we have,” Lt. Dave Okada from Salem Police Department said.
