HOWARD BEACH — A young woman was found inside a hotel in Queens Saturday and police were trying to piece together what led up to her death, police said.

The victim, an unidentified 22-year-old, was found at 11:24 a.m., unconscious and unresponsive at the Surfside 3 Motel, at 164-33 Cross Bay Blvd., police said.

Rescuers pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

A man who answered the phone at the motel said no manager was available to speak and he would not comment on the investigation.
