Authorities are investigating a suspicious death at the Branford Motel.

Motel staff called police when a guest in room 323 failed to check out when he was supposed to. A housekeeper knocked on the door and entered to find him face down on the floor.

Police said the housekeeper could tell he was dead.

Investigators responded to the motel, located at 470 East Main Street, around 2 p.m.

The man’s name has not been released, but police said he is middle-aged. Hotel management sys he was a regular customer.

The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Police could only say something unusual happened on the first floor of the hotel.

The Connecticut State Police Major Crime Squad and the New Haven State’s Attorney have been notified and will assist in the investigation.

“Our investigators will work closely with the CSP and the State’s Attorney’s Office to determine all of the facts and circumstances that surround this untimely death and determine a cause," said Det. Lt. Arthur Kohloff, in a statement.
