The middle-aged man, who was from the Chattanooga area, checked into the motel Wednesday about 4 p.m., motel officials said. When he didn't leave at the 11 a.m. checkout time, motel employees opened his door and found his body inside.
He died of a gunshot wound, police said.
His name has not been released.
