An America, Charles Carlson, has been found dead hanging in a Lagos hotel room.
Carlson was discovered dead in the hotel room on Tuesday, The Eagle Online learnt.
According to information available to The Eagle Online, Carlson’s room at Ellyx Vile Hotel at 8, African Line, Lekki Phase 1, was broken open after the American failed to come for his breakfast and did not pick calls to both his mobile number and the hotel intercom.
Police sources said the Manager of Ellyx Vile Hotel, Vincent Owunke, reported the development to the police.
The management of the hotel, sources told The Eagle Online, became bothered when Carlson, 57, did not pick his calls or come down for breakfast.
The management then called his business partner to report the development.
On the arrival of the business partner, the door to the room was forced open, with Carlson found motionless in the room.
He was found to have “hung himself with a rope close to door”, The Eagle Online was told.
Detectives from Maroko Division of the Lagos State Police Command have visited the scene, it was gathered.
Carlson’s corpse has since been evacuated to the mortuary.
The Eagle Online was told that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has directed the case to be transferred to Homicide Section of State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti for discreet investigation.
