STOCKHOLM, Sweden, April 21 (UPI) -- Police in Stockholm, Sweden, are trying to identify a woman found dead in a four-star hotel room Saturday, officials said.
The woman was found by a maid in a first floor room. The maid first thought the woman was asleep, thelocal.se said.
"We can confirm that it is a woman whom we believe was slain and we have therefore launched a preliminary investigation into murder or manslaughter," police spokesman Lars Bystrom told news agency TT.
Police have asked hotel patrons to come forward with any information they might have.
