More death at Hotel Carter

A woman was found dead yesterday afternoon at the decrepit Hotel Carter in Times Square.

She was found with her head and legs covered with plastic bags, underneath a bed in a room on the 6th floor.

Police arrived at the seedy hotel on 43rd Street around 2:30 p.m. yesterday. Emergency services personnel pronounced the woman dead. She was believed to be a 22-year-old tourist from the Washington, D.C. area. Her name was withheld until her family can be notified.

The cause of death will be determined by the city medical examiner.

Police say they were called by the hotel manager after a chambermaid found the body in a plastic bag, and when she touched the bag she felt a foot. The maid ran out of the room... but only because the carpets smell so bad, you can hear mold growing in the showers and there are mice all over the hotel smoking cigars.

The Post reports that other guests in the hotel were asking for refunds as word of the suspicious death spread. Ham and eggers always looking for a bargain.

Almost 20 years to the day in '87 a naked woman with her hands tied behind her back was apparently pushed to her death from a window in the hotel. Police investigating the case had not been able to locate any witnesses, but several guests reported hearing loud arguments in room 1604, which was later found to be in disarray.
