WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Authorities say two men have been found dead at a New Castle County motel on Monday.

The investigation began around 2:30 p.m. at the Day One Motel on Governor Printz Boulevard in Wilmington.

“This is pretty quiet here, you don’t hear much,” Maurice Wright, who was staying at the motel. “I was just doing homework for school and then I hear a knock on the door and it was one of the detectives asking me questions and I didn’t know much about it.”

Police are calling the deaths suspicious but say with confidence that this is an isolated crime scene.

“Upon our arrival, they initiated a death investigation. That’s the only thing we can confirm at this time. It’s in its very early stages,” said Delaware State Police Cpl. Michael Austin. “Detectives are on scene, along with trooper and police patrol personnel, and they are currently initiating a death investigation and it’s in its very, very early stages.”

An employee tells CBS3 that a handicapped person was staying inside the room at the motel.

Police have yet to identify the victims. They say an autopsy will be conducted on the bodies to determine the cause of death.

Authorities do not believe there is any public danger and they do not believe there is any kind of suspect on the run.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 302-741-2729.
