A police report said that the customer, a retired policeman, checked in at room 5 of the motel with a young woman.

A few minutes later however, the young woman rushed out of the room asking motel workers to help her companion who seemed to be encountering trouble in bed.

Motel crew found the former policeman unconscious and was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead on arrival due to Cardiac Arrest.

The woman was reported to have left the place aboard a tricycle just as workers were trying to attend to her companion.

The cadaver was brought to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination.

Police are still trying to identify and locate the woman who accompanied the victim to the motel.  (Dan Toribio)
