ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police are investigating after a worker discovered a man's body in one of the rooms of an Atlanta hotel.

Police tell WSB-TV that the man found dead had been strangled, and the case is being treated as a homicide.

The man, who appeared to be in his late teens or early 20s, was found Saturday afternoon at the "InTown Suites" off Northside Drive.

Atlanta police Capt. Michael O'Connor said there was nothing unusual about the condition of the room when the body was found.

The man's name wasn't released.
