Police in Philadelphia are investigating after the body of a woman -- who worked as a flight attendant -- was found in a room at a Marriott hotel at the Philadelphia International Airport.

According to Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small, officers were called to the Philadelphia Airport Marriott at 1 Arrival Road at about 10:41 p.m. on Monday after the body of a 66-year-old woman was discovered in a hotel room.

On Thursday, police identified the woman as Diana Ramos. Though, officials did not provide any further information on this incident.

Investigators said that the woman -- now identified as Ramos -- was pronounced at the scene at about 10:45 p.m., and when she was discovered, she had "a cloth in her mouth."

On Tuesday, officials confirmed that Ramos was employed as a flight attendant for American Airlines.

Small told NBC10 that officials are investigating the incident as a suspicious death, though he said, Ramos was believed to have suffered a "sudden death" and there were no signs of forced entry into the hotel room.

Also, she was "on several medications," according to Small.

No arrests have yet been made and no weapons were recovered from the scene, and, Small said, an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Asked to comment on the incident, representatives for Marriott instead directed all inquiries to the police.
