The hotel owner said a woman and her child had been living in the room for about a year but had stopped paying rent recently.

Family members of that tenant arrived at the hotel around noon and couldn’t get an answer after knocking on the door.

Dunn police believe drug overdoses are to blame but said a death investigation is underway.
