Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched shortly after 1 p.m. to Motel 6 at 3505 State St., where an "unresponsive person was found in the bathtub," Sgt. Riley Harwood said.
It was determined that the woman had died, Harwood said, and coroner's personnel were called in.
The situation remained under investigation, but Harwood said it appears the woman may have taken her own life.
