Hilliard Division of Police officers are investigating a death after a man's body was found Sunday morning, Feb. 16, outside Rodeway Inn, 3950 Parkway Lane.

The motel is off Cemetery Road and near Interstate 270.

The Norwich Township Fire Department was dispatched at 8:06 a.m., according to fire Chief Jeff Warren.

A passerby called 911 to report a body outside the hotel, said officer Hyde Slone.

Police identified the man as Grant Roberts, 21, but did not include an address.

Slone described it as an “undetermined death.”

She would not say whether the man was registered as a guest at the motel, and she reiterated Feb. 17 that police were not releasing any more information on Roberts at this time.

Roberts was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Franklin County coroner was at the site Feb. 16, and the body was covered by a tent, in a grassy area between a driveway and a parking lot for the hotel rooms.
