PHILADELPHIA, PA – A 66-year-old flight attendant for American Airlines was discovered deceased in her room at the Marriott hotel connected to the Philadelphia International Airport, as per recent reports. The woman, whose identity is yet to be disclosed, was found by hotel cleaning staff with a sock in her mouth around 10:45 p.m. on Monday.
The Philadelphia Police Department, who are investigating the case, reported no signs of forced entry or struggle in the room. The flight attendant was supposed to have checked out two days before she was found, adding to the mystery surrounding her death. While the investigators have termed the death as “suspicious,” the exact cause is yet to be determined.
Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small suggested that the woman may have experienced a “sudden death.” However, the circumstances leading to her death remain unclear. The woman’s colleagues and local residents expressed their shock and sadness at the tragic incident.
An American Airlines flight attendant, who wished to remain anonymous, told reporters that the woman’s crew was based in Los Angeles and that everyone was trying to understand what had happened. “It’s very sad,” they said, “There are a lot of moving parts and questions right now.”
Local residents also expressed their concern and condolences. “It’s very strange and it seems like a lot of unanswered questions,” said Tracee Quinn, a local resident. Patricia Watkins, another resident, expressed her sympathy for the woman’s family.
Investigators found several sealed prescription bottles in the woman’s room, adding another layer to the mystery. Autopsy results are still pending, which may shed light on the cause of her death.
