    CASSELBERRY, Fla. - A maid at an extended stay motel in Casselberry maid found a man’s body Tuesday inside one of the rooms, authorities said.

    Casselberry police said they believe Glenn David Lannan, 54, had been there for several days, and they are treating the investigation as a homicide.

    Lannan had been staying at the HomeTowne Studios on North Oxford Road near Semoran Boulevard since August, police said.

    Nicole Martinez, who is also staying at the motel, said the discovery made her feel very uneasy.

    “We’ve got kids and I let my daughter play around here,” Martinez said. “So, to know that they’re finding dead bodies around here, it makes me feel very uncomfortable.”

    Motel resident Candice Allen was also disturbed by the discovery.

    “It is really scary,” she said. “Because we had no idea, and too much stuff is going on in this world, and to be right next to it.”

    Residents said they will take precautionary measures to stay safe.

    “I will make sure my doors are locked on my room and I won’t go out at night,” said resident Shari Condi.

    Police said there were no signs of foul play outside the room, in the room or on the body. There were no signs of drug use or an overdose.

    Police said an autopsy will be completed this week.
