Body found at 'The 9'

Detectives are investigating after a body was found in a hotel room at the "Metropolitan at The 9" in downtown Cleveland.

A woman's body was found just before 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Cleveland Police say the unidentified woman's family members had contacted the Reminderville Police Department for a wellness check, stating that the woman had left home on July 2 and had been staying at the hotel.

There is no word on how the woman died.

Police say there are no signs that her hotel room had been forced open. They also say the woman had no apparent injuries.

The 9 released this statement on its Twitter account Tuesday:

"In regards to the unfortunate event, we're currently working with authorities. The safety of our guests and residents is our priority."

Police say the investigation will be considered a Dead Body investigation until the Medical Examiner makes his ruling.
