State Police investigating "suspicious" death at Wilton inn


WILTON, N.Y. (WRGB) - New York State Police are investigating a "suspicious" death at the Crest Inn Suites & Cottages.

State Police say they were originally called to the inn Wednesday for a report of an unattended death. However, they say following a preliminary investigation, the death has been ruled "suspicious."

Police have not yet released the victim's identity.

The inn is owned by the Hussain family, the same family that owns Prestige Limousine, which was involved in the deadly Schoharie crash last Saturday.

Police say at this time, the death is not related to the business owners, or the business itself.

CBS6 has learned that recently, the inn was temporarily shut down.

According to a statement released by the State Department of Health in May of 2017, the permit to operate the Crest Inn Suites & Cottages was suspended due to public health hazards and other violations of the state sanitary code.

DOH also previously said the department worked with the Town of Wilton codes enforcement officials who identified numerous building code violations.
