Four Bodies Including a Child Found in Alaskan Hotel Room

Fairbanks police are investigating an incident at a local hotel that left four people dead, CBS affiliate KTVA reports.

According to a release from the Fairbanks Police Department, officers and the Fairbanks Fire Department responded to the Hampton Inn at 433 Harold Bentley Ave. after hotel staff called about a “suspicious circumstance.”

 

When officers arrived to the scene, they found a man sitting in the hallway crying. Police say he directed them to a nearby hotel room where officers found the four people — three adults and a child — dead of apparent gunshot wounds.

The victims were identified as 54-year-old Linda Hutton, 22-year-old Emily McDonald, 22-year-old McKay Hutton and 8-week-old Teagan Hutton.

“What we know is that there’s a lot we still don’t know. So until we can figure out and put some more pieces together we’re not going to talk about a motive or possible scenario of what might have happened,” a police officer told The Fairbanks News Miner.

FPD stated there is no threat to public safety in this case.
