ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) — Police say a woman's body was found wrapped in a bloody sheet outside a hotel in Atlanta's northern suburbs.

Roswell police tell WAGA-TV that her body was found early Thursday morning, outside the Atlanta Hotel on Old Dogwood Road in Roswell.

Roswell police Officer Lisa Holland tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a person heading to work spotted the body in a breezeway around 6 a.m. Thursday.

No details were released regarding the woman's identity or how she died. Police say they're conducting a homicide investigation.

The hotel is just west of the Georgia 400 Holcomb Bridge Road exit, about 20 miles north of downtown Atlanta.
