DANIA BEACH, Fla. – Florida authorities are investigating the death of a woman whose body was discovered Tuesday afternoon by a hotel employee.

Broward County sheriff's deputies are considering the death at a Dania Beach hotel to be suspicious, WPLG-TV reports. The body was found when the employee entered a guest room.
