Butler County sheriff: Foul play not suspected in motel room death

Butler County authorities are trying to determine the cause of death of a 26-year-old woman whose body was found Tuesday afternoon at the Blue Spruce Motel east of El Dorado.

Butler County Sheriff Craig Murphy said foul play is not suspected in the death of Kayla McDonald of El Dorado, whose body was found shortly after noon by the motel owner.

McDonald checked into the motel about 10 a.m. Monday, Murphy said, and the owner went to check on her welfare after she failed to check out by noon today.
