The police say, Edward Waters Jr., 49, was unresponsive when they responded to a call at a Super 8 hotel on Thursday around noon. Paramedics from the West Haven Fire Department later pronounced him dead.

No further details were released as the police consider it an untimely death and their investigation are ongoing.
