Child found dead inside Masters Inn room in Seffner

SEFFNER — Hillsborough County deputies are investigating the death of a child whose body was found inside a Masters Inn motel room Saturday.

Investigators did not release the age of child or the cause of death. It was unclear if foul play was at all suspected.

Detectives were on first scene at 6010 County Road 579 Saturday afternoon around 1 p.m.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Danny Alvarez said detectives were awaiting the medical examiner’s report to "determine the direction of the investigation."

The inn is in a plaza near a Subway and Wendy’s restaurant, all of which had been shut down to the public by the property owner.
