Body found in Fenton hotel, suspicious death investigation underway

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- Officials are investigating what they call a suspicious death in Fenton, Mo.

According to police, the body of a 51-year-old woman was discovered Tuesday night at the Stratford Inn on 800 S. Highway Dr.

Authorities say officers responded to a 911 call around 7 p.m., in which the woman’s husband reported that his wife was unresponsive.

When emergency personnel arrived to the scene, the woman was found dead.

The incident is being termed a suspicious death because there was no obvious trauma to the woman’s body. Police are waiting for autopsy reports to see if the cause of death was natural.

It was reported that the woman had a history of health problems and that she and her husband were staying at the hotel.

Further investigations will be conducted by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner.

The woman's identity is currently being withheld. Her husband is cooperating with the investigation.
