    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - Police in South Florida are treating the deaths of a woman on the beach and a man in a nearby hotel as suspicious.

    Hollywood police Officer Christian Lata tells news outlets the woman's body was found early Wednesday. They found the man's body hours later in a hotel just a short distance away.

    Lata says the pair knew each other and the deaths are related, though he offered few specifics. He says the woman was middle-aged, but didn't provide any details about the man.

    Lata said authorities don't believe the deaths were a "random act of violence."

    Homicide detectives are continuing an investigation.
