Police are investigating the cause of a man’s death after they found his body this past weekend.

Police were called out to the room of a motel located at the 3400 block of South Padre Island Drive just after 11:00 am Saturday morning.

According to police, a motel attendant noticed one of the guests had not checked out of his room and discovered the man unconscious and not breathing in a room.

Police and medics arrived and determined the 26-year-old man was deceased. 

As of Monday afternoon, investigators with the Corpus Christi Police Department are waiting for a medical examiners report to determine how the man died.

Police are asking for help from the public to determine what the man was doing before his body was discovered. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at (361)-888-TIPS.
