Man’s body found in Alliance hotel room

Man’s body found in Alliance hotel room

The Alliance Police Department says that a BNSF engineer whose body was found in a hotel room has appeared to die of natural causes.

On Tuesday morning, APD officers were called to the Alliance Inn and Suites on Cody Avenue and met with a BNSF representative. They said that 36-year-old engineer Matthew McKelvey had not responded to any texts that had been sent, so they went to check on him.

Police say there was no evidence of foul play, and it is believed that McKelvey died of natural causes. The Box Butte Coroner was notified and his next of kin were contacted by the railroad.
