Suspicious death reported at motel near Busch Gardens


Police seek witnesses in suspicious death

Tampa police on Saturday were investigating a suspicious death of a man at a Days Inn near Busch Gardens.

Police were dispatched at 11:38 a.m. to the motel at 2901 E Busch Blvd. The dead man was not identified as of late Saturday. Detectives are trying to find witnesses to the incident. The motel management was not available for comment.

A woman and her children played in the pool Saturday afternoon, amidst palm trees and tiki huts, just a few feet away from the crime scene, a corner of the parking lot and a few rooms cordoned off by yellow caution tape.

About a dozen orange cones had been placed on the ground in that corner of the parking lot.
