Police are investigating the suspicious death of a woman found face down in a bathtub full of water Monday night inside a Victory Drive motel room.

Alexandra Johnson, 23, was pronounced dead at 6:57 p.m., Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan said Tuesday morning. Her body was found in the WoodSpring Suites motel at 1801 Victory Drive.

Johnson lived at a residence on Lawyer Lane, according to Bryan.

When authorities entered the room, it was flooded. There was blood and drug paraphenalia in the room, Bryan said.
