    TAVARES, Fla. - Tavares police are investigating a suspicious death at a motel.

    Police were called to the Inn on the Green on Burleigh Boulevard about 11 a.m. Wednesday after getting a call from someone who wanted police to check on their friend. 


    Police believe the death could be foul play, but have not ruled out other causes.

    The man staying next door to where the body was found said he was shocked about the discovery.

    “I just did not know what was going on, but now that I know that, I might just get out of here,” said Josh Johnson.

    Detectives have not released the identity of the person who died.
