A flight attendant was found dead inside her hotel room at the Philadelphia International Airport with a “sock in her mouth”.
Cleaning staff at the Philadelphia Airport found the body of the 66-year-old woman from Las Vegas on Monday evening. Health officials officially declared her dead around 10:40 p.m. The woman, who was working for an American airline, was supposed to have checked out two days earlier.
There were no indications of forced entry, no evidence of a struggle, and no weapons were discovered at the scene, Philadelphia police said, as reported by 6ABC.
Investigating officials found sealed prescription bottles inside the room, indicating that the woman was taking “several medications.”
A definitive cause of death has not been established, but Chief Inspector Scott Small informed NBC10 that she experienced a “sudden death.”
As per an internal memo, cited by NDTV, American Airlines said the flight attendant “passed away suddenly” while on a layover in Philadelphia. “She had worked for the airline for 25 years. The well-being of our team members is our top priority, and we will ensure that all those affected by this tragic loss have the support they need,” read the memo.
