Western Inn Motel investigation

ESCAMBIA COUNTY  --  Escambia County deputies are investigating an aggravated battery after a bloody hotel room was discovered at the Western Inn this morning on Mobile Highway.

Workers at the hotel say they went to check on the tenets when they discovered the bloody mess.
They called the sheriffs office who combed the area for clues for several hours.

Around 10:00 this morning a maid went to check on the tenets at this hotel room.  She says the door was open.
   
She walked inside to find blood covering the entire room.
Shandra Bradley has worked at the Western Inn for a few months  She says two adults and several small children were living in the room for the past month.
   
They were late on their rent so she went to their room to find out why.  She had no clue what she'd find.

Shandra Bradley  "Blood all over the blankets, blood on the bed, blood on the sheets, blood on the carpet, blood everywhere. I mean you step in it and it's like gushy, gushy its blood everywhere."
   
But there was no family inside.  Not one person or body.
"It is weird because I've got to clean up that mess it's bad."

"They were kind of quiet. We would  see them out here when we would walk the baby around, but other then that we'd speak to them every now and then."
No name  "Actually that is pretty freaky."
   
Several residents say they heard nothing overnight or in the early morning hours,
Jackie Gillis  "If it happened it happened after I went to sleep."
   
But many have their own theory as to what happened in the room.
"Most of the time it's usually drugs around here. Most of the gun fights and arguments ar over drugs, so that's probably what it was."

"I've been seeing some crazy stuff going on around here I mean it's terrible."
Around the same time a man was transported to the Baptist Hospital from the front of the inn.
               
He had injuries on his face and was laying on the side of the road.
It's still unclear at this time if he had any connection to the bloody hotel room.
