Woman found dead at Park City hotel; police investigating ‘possible homicide’

Police said they are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found early Thursday in a Park City hotel room as a “possible homicide.”

Officers found the 28-year-old woman in bed in her room about 1:30 a.m. at the Park Regency hotel, 1710 Prospector Ave., after someone flagged down a patrol sergeant for help, Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter said at a news conference broadcast live by KUTV.

Someone from the hotel called police shortly after the officer was flagged down to report a “ruckus” in the room.

Investigators are calling the death a “possible homicide.” They have not released what type of injuries the woman sustained.

The person who flagged down police was being questioned by police Wednesday morning. Carpenter said he doesn’t believe there are any suspects unaccounted for in the death.

It was unclear if anyone has been arrested in the case. Park City Police referred inquiries to the Summit County Attorney’s Office.

County Attorney Margaret Olson confirmed the investigation, but said it is her office’s policy not to comment on active investigations.
