NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Police in the Bahamas say an American has fallen from ninth-floor balcony of his beachfront hotel and died.
Police superintendent Stephen Dean says that the body of the 44-year-old man was found Thursday by guests at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort on Cable Beach in the Bahamian capital of Nassau.
Dean declined to release the man's name on Friday because the authorities were still trying to notify family members. 
Investigators don't believe the death was a suicide.
