 (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman whose body was found at the bottom of a laundry chute at the tallest hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas over the weekend.

KSNV-TV reports that the Clark County coroner's office identified the woman as 26-year-old Kalli Medina-Brown, of Citrus Heights, California, which is outside Sacramento.

How she died is still undetermined.

Officer Michael Rodriguez says the case is being investigated as a suspicious death.

Rodriguez says homicide detectives were summoned early Sunday after the woman was found dead at the D Las Vegas on Fremont Street.

The 34-story D Las Vegas has almost 640 rooms. Hotel spokeswoman Lorena Amaya issued a statement calling the death unfortunate, but declining to comment about the investigation.

Amaya says the hotel is cooperating with authorities.
