American Overdoses in Tijuana Hotel
A U.S. citizen was found dead in a Tijuana hotel room this morning, July 24th. A staff member unlocked the room at the Hotel América to find a nude white male lying lifeless on the bed.
The room was checked out to Lance Miller Jr. of California, who had a matching ID card in his belongings. A Red Cross unit was immediately called to the room, where he was presumed dead from a drug overdose.
Hotel América is located on calle Cuarta, between Negrete and Ocampo. Rooms can be rented for around $30 USD per night.
The Attorney General’s office said it will investigate into any possible foul play.
