Vegas police reopen investigation into death of hotel worker

December 2, 2021 GMT

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police have reopened their investigation of the death of a housekeeper at a Las Vegas Strip hotel.

Police say authorities initially thought a “medical issue” caused the death of the woman found unresponsive in a hotel room on Nov. 28 and that there was no immediate indication of anything suspicious.

However, the police department said late Wednesday in a statement that police received unspecified new information “that prompted the reexamination of this death investigation.”

The statement said homicide detectives want to speak with a person seen in the area where the housekeeper was found.

Surveillance video released by police showed a man with a goatee and wearing black clothing.

No identities have been released.
