DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) — A woman has been found dead inside a Dewey Beach motel room, and police are investigating it as a homicide.

Police say the young woman was found dead by a cleaning lady Monday morning inside a ground-floor room at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel on Coastal Highway.

The Dewey Beach police have called in the Delaware State Police to investigate. Detectives on Monday evening released surveillance photographs of a person of interest, saying they were looking to question a man who appeared to be in his mid-20s.

Dewey Beach, located between Rehoboth Beach and Bethany Beach along Delaware’s Eastern Shore, is a popular summertime destination — especially for college students and young adults.
