Investigators working to understand woman's death at Evansville hotel

Investigators hope something inside a room at the east side Hampton Inn in Evansville will determine how a Tri-State woman died who was staying at the hotel.

The woman's husband, Kenneth Frank, was taken in for questioning after police say, he pushed his wife's body on a luggage cart through the hotel's lobby and into the parking lot.

14 News learned that Kenneth Frank was questioned and released. He is no longer being held on Wednesday night by Evansville police.

Even though what happened at the hotel Wednesday remains a mystery.

Business is back to normal at the hotel on Eagle Crest Blvd., after the very bizarre situation around 12:30 p.m. That's when, police tell 14 News the body of 47-year-old Robin Frank was wheeled through the hotel's lobby on a luggage cart and then placed in a car by her husband.  

Late Wednesday night, Vanderburgh County Coroner Annie Groves confirmed that there were no visible signs of trauma, that she could see on the body. She'll be taking a closer look during an autopsy set for Thursday morning.  

Officers say they are thankful that one of the hotel's clerks saw this strange situation and called police.

"The clerk saw a gentleman pushing a luggage cart out of the hotel with this female on it. The female did not appear to be moving and the clerk was worried that something was wrong with her, maybe she had a health condition. They weren't sure, so they called us," EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum said.

14 News is told more information should be released on this investigation after Thursday's autopsy that's set at 11:00 a.m. We'll keep you updated.
