State Police are investigating after a man was found dead at a Berlin motel

BERLIN, Conn. (WTNH) — State Police are investigating a suspicious death at the Days Inn in Berlin on Sunday morning after a man was found dead.

State Police say at 3:30 a.m. the Connecticut State Police Central District Major Crime Squad (CDMC) was requested by the Berlin Police Department to respond to the Days Inn Motel at 2387 Berlin Turnpike. They say they were called to assist with the investigation of a suspicious death.

According to State Police, at the request of the State’s Attorney Office, CDMC has assumed the investigation. They say at this time detectives remain at the scene and are actively investigating the incident.

Meriden Police and SWAT team are also on the scene.

Authorities say the State Police K9 team and the New Britain Police Department Tactical Team were also assisting with the investigation.

Sgt. Eric Haglund from Connecticut State Police said, “The New Britain Swat Team responded to the scene to conduct a protective sweep of the property because it is a hotel with a lot of different rooms to make sure the scene is safe.”

Detectives are still trying to figure out who this man is and how he died. Several different agencies responded to the scene and now they’re speaking with guests one by one.

“Detectives are going through the investigation. They’re interviewing everybody and my understanding is as they’re interviewed their being released,” said Haglund.

State Police say there does not appear to be any threat to the public.

Officials say that anyone who thinks they may have any information is asked to call 860-685-8190 or text TIP711 with any information to 274637. They say all calls and tips will remain confidential.
