Customer reports of bed bugs at a Marlin motel

On Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m., July 22, Clifton Canady rented a room at the Marlin Inn in Marlin, Texas. He asserts it was his first time staying there, and that he originally was going to stay with his children in the city, but it was a little crowded at their home. Canady, who currently lives in Temple, says he washed his clothes at the local laundry mat in Marlin and then at about 7:00 p.m. he laid down inside of the bed of the cool air-conditioned room. At 8:00 p.m. he states he jumped out of the bed when he started to feel biting on his neck and legs and pulled the bed apart only to discover the bed bugs.
