(CNN) — A woman was found dead in a motel in Florida, with two live monkeys and a note in the room, authorities said.

The capuchin monkeys were contained in a crate, the North Port Police Department said in a statement.

Police identified the woman found at the Budget Inn on Friday as Linda Marie Smith, 59, of Arcadia, Florida.

“There was no obvious signs of trauma to Smith’s body,” police said.

An incoherent man, who was in the room with her, received medical attention and was being questioned, police said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is taking care of the monkeys.

Police did not release the identity of the man or what the note said.
