Authorities are investigating after a tourist was found murdered at a hotel in Doral early Tuesday.
Doral Police said the 26-year-old man, identified as Theodore Brown, was found in a pool of blood somewhere on the fourth floor of the Courtyard by Marriott at 3929 Northwest 79th Avenue around 1 a.m.
Officials said Brown was in town for the Jazz in the Gardens event in Miami Gardens last weekend. He was visiting from Bowie, MD and was a guest at the hotel with a co-worker. The co-worker told detectives Brown went to his room to rest for the evening. When the co-worker returned to the hotel, he told police he found the 26-year-old dead on the floor near the elevator.
The case is being handled by Miami-Dade police. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
