4/11 10:45 a.m. UPDATE: The woman's death has been reclassified to a homicide and a person known to her has been arrested. She died due to blunt force trauma, police said, but they will not release her name or the suspect's name until family has been notified.

VIRGINIA BEACH -- A woman was found dead in a room at a Virginia Beach motel Thursday and police are calling her death suspicious.

'Detectives are speaking to a person of interest,' said MPO Tonya Borman.

Police were called to Studios & Suites 4 Less Hotel at 717 S. Military Highway just before 6 a.m.

Kimberley Chapmann says she's lived at the motel for three years and often saw a woman and her son going in and out of the room.

'They were really never sociable other than hi, bye, how you doing?,' she said.

The woman's name and the person detectives are talking to have not been released.
