Police are investigating three NC motel deaths that occurred in the same room within the last two months.
CBS reports that an 11-year-old boy and his mother were found unresponsive in their room this weekend at the Best Western Plus Blue Ridge Plaza in Boone, North Carolina. Officers were able to revive Jeannie Williams, 49, but the 11-year-old boy could not be saved.
Police Sgt. Shane Robbins did not elaborate on the woman’s injuries but said that she was now in stable conditions.
The incident occurred in the same room where two elderly guests were found dead earlier this year. Police are investigating the NC motel deaths, but at the moment they do not believe that the incidents are related.
Robbins said: “It was actually the same room … But other than that, at this time, we don’t have any more links or correlation.”
Police do not know the boy’s cause of death, but they did say that there were no signs of violence.
The motel was evacuated after the boy and his mother were found unresponsive at the motel room. A hazmat team from Asheville was brought in to remove their belongings. Police are now doing forensic tests at the motel room but said that the public was not in any danger.
Robbins said: “While no evidence has been discovered that these incidents are related, investigators continue to explore all possibilities.”
