Seattle police homicide detectives are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found inside an Aurora Avenue North motel last night.
Seal’s Motel manager Kelly Yu said she had grown concerned about the woman, a longterm guest, because she hadn’t seen her since Saturday. Yu asked her husband to go into the woman’s room and check on her. At around 5:30 p.m. he found the 34-year-old woman dead on the floor, Yu said.
Seattle police confirmed they are investigating the case and have deemed it suspicious. An autopsy was performed on Thursday, but the woman’s identity was not released by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Yu said the woman checked into the motel, at 12035 Aurora Ave N., on Nov. 8 as part of a contract she had with a substance abuse rehabilitation clinic. The woman was supposed to attend rehab and not have any guests in her room, Yu said.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office is still working to identify a man who was fatally shot by the owner of a Kent tree nursery during an apparent burglary early Wednesday.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the owner shot and killed the alleged intruder and held a second man at gunpoint until deputies arrived at his nearly 20-acre property. Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said the owner of Frager Farm Stand, in the 25100 block of Frager Road South, was getting ready for bed around 1:30 a.m. when he went to investigate a noise in his business, which is adjacent to his house.
He grabbed his shotgun and discovered two young men rifling through his office, she said.
According to court documents, the man who was killed and a 21-year-old who survived went to Frager Farm around 10:30 p.m. and kicked open the front door. They became “spooked” and ran away, but returned later that night.
Deputies said the two had been smoking meth earlier that night.
The 21-year-old suspect was booked into the King County Jail just after 5:30 a.m. Wednesday on investigation of burglary. He is also being held on a bench warrant that was issued Sept. 17 after he failed to show up in court to resolve a November 2012 violation for driving without a license, jail and court records show. The man is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.

A man suspected of neglecting his elderly mother so severely that she died was arrested by Seattle police Monday, a day after what would have been her 90th birthday. He’s been booked into the King County Jail on investigation of manslaughter.
Detectives started an investigation into her death in October last year at her home on the 7900 block of Martin Luther King Junior Way South. The 56-year-old man’s mother, whose previous body weight had been 90 pounds, died weighing 58 pounds, according to the Seattle Police Department.
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office notified state adult-care agencies and Seattle Police Department’s elder-abuse detective because she had been severely neglected by her caregiver, according to the Seattle Police Department’s online blotter.
Seattle detectives eventually found enough evidence of a pattern of neglect to arrest the woman’s son, according to police.
