Philadelphia hotel fire is murder cover-up

There was violence at the center of a recent hotel fire in Philadelphia. A repeat guest of the Center City Omni Hotel, Patrick Brady was found beaten, strangled and set ablaze. The 49-year-old stayed at the property when in the area on business.

On Saturday, the local fire department was called to the hotel because of an eighth-floor fire. It was put out quickly and limited to Brady's room. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told the local ABC affiliate, "The fire was probably set to cover up the homicide. That's not all that unusual in cases like that." Information about the suspect hasn't been released.
