The Rutland City Police Department is busy investigating what they say is the suspicious death of a teenager. His name wasn’t yet available Saturday night, but investigators wrote in an email that he was a 19-year-old man.
His body was found inside a room at the Quality Inn on South Main Street shortly after 6:30 Saturday morning. There will be an autopsy at the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington, but it wasn’t clear when that might take place.
