It was Monday when the body of a woman was found by housekeeping staff inside a room at the Marriot Hotel near PHL. The female victim, 66 years old, was reportedly discovered deceased with a sock stuffed in her mouth.
According to 6abc.com, she was supposed to have checked out of the Marriot the Saturday before she was found dead.
