Conway police have identified Susan "Heather" Stubbs, 41, of Conway, as the woman found dead by a clerk about 6 p.m. Sunday at the Days Inn on Oak Street in Conway.

The police also say they have a suspect, Scotty Gardner, 53. Police say he booked the room where the woman was found earlier in the day. A clderk found Stubbs when she checked the room after Gardner failed to return to pay for a second night.

Police haven't released details about the manner of death or circumstances leading up to it.

Stubbs' family has set up a gofundme account to defray expenses of her family. She was a single mother of three children. The gofundme page said Stubbs had attended church with her children Sunday morning. Conway police said Gardner and Stubbs had a relationship. On-line records indicate he's a parolee, though his past record wasn't immediately available.
