“In response to the serious allegation, our staff immediately contacted law enforcement and a thorough investigation was conducted.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A Florida woman claims she found a dead human fetus in her hotel room last week.
In a June 27 Facebook post, Ásh Whïté says she was visiting Tallahassee for a family reunion and booked a room at the Hilton Garden Inn. Upon entering she realized the room had not been fully cleaned since the previous guest’s stay.
“We noticed something in our closet,” she says in the video.
Whïté narrates video footage of what appears to be a plastic bag filled with human blood, which she says a hotel employee told her was likely a dead preborn baby.
A hotel staff member allegedly responded: “Oh, you know what, we’re contracted with Planned Parenthood. This looks like an aborted fetus. I’m going to just take it.”
“I was like, ‘What? What did you just say to me,’” Whïté said. “That wasn’t just something you just put on somebody like that and expect them to just go on about their day.”
In the comments section of her Facebook post, Whïté added: “[The hotel employee] was like so calm with her response like this normal she explained she might have took the abortion pill and went back and passed the fetus in the room.”
Whïté did not respond to a request for an interview.

Whïté says she called the police, who investigated and conducted a written report about the incident. The video shows a short clip of police officers approaching the hotel entrance. Tallahassee Police Department did not immediately return a request for comment.
The video ends with staff offering her 30,000 hotel points and telling her she could contact Hilton for a full refund.
Students for Life of America posted Whïté’s video on Instagram. The post had racked up over 87,000 views as of Monday morning.
Hilton Hotels said the Hilton Garden Inn in Tallahassee is independently owned and operated.
