The Strange Case of the Unexplained Death of Elisa Lam

In 2013, a mysterious tragedy occurred when Elisa Lam, a 21 year old Canadian student, was found with her life taken, stripped of her clothes in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, a very public place but a location with a “very murky past,” as one article puts it.

You might remember that CCTV footage of her acting very peculiar, very wrong and confused in an unsettling way like something out of a horror movie, or something that happens when they consume hard drugs for several days in a row, which also looks like a horror movie in America these days.

It’s now been around five years since this strange case occurred, and people still don’t seem to know what happened. This is the footage that was captured.

It started when Lam decided to tour the West Coast of the United States in January 2013. She started in the southernmost West Coast city of San Diego, California, hitting quite regular tourist stops, behaving like a very normal type of person (not that being normal is being correct: as her situation might indicate, being as trusting as a normal person can lead to consequences).

She visited a zoo, blogged about it on Tumblr, and then on January 26 she checked into the Cecil Hotel in the center of the big city of Los Angeles, California. It’s a city that hides so much, that has so much, it should boggle the mind. The Los Angeles Metropolitan Area is a place with so many things, you’d be wise to keep your wits about you and be careful who you trust, and that definitely includes people serving you food, checking you into hotels, everything.

The Cecil Hotel has a strange history, not unlike other places in the center of big American cities. While Los Angeles in many places has been subject to a lot of gentrification, this hotel has historically been located in a poor, impoverished area of the city. California is so expensive that people can’t help but occupy places like this to save money: that’s how it is in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Oakland, Sacramento, every city you can think of. People move to very wild and dangerous places like Stockton, California from the Bay Area and Sacramento to save money: there are seriously consequences for that sometimes in California, depending on how you are and who you choose to trust.

One article describes the Cecil Hotel:

“Amongst the unsavoury characters to call the Cecil home at some point are notorious serial killers Richard Ramirez and Johann Unterweger. Ramirez, know as the ‘Night Stalker’ lived there from 1984-1985, in this period he killed 13 women, dumping his bloodied clothes in the bins round the back. Austrian murderer Unterweger, thought to be a Ramirez copycat, took up residence there and went on a spree of prostitute killing. In 1962, Pauline Otton jumped from her ninth-floor room, killing George Gianinni when her body landed on him. There was also the unsolved murder of Goldie Osgood, known as the Pigeon woman. She was found strangled, raped, and stabbed inside her room on the 7th floor. It’s also widely been reported that murder victim Elizabeth Short, better known as the Black Dahlia, had her last drink at the hotel shortly before her death in 1947. The hotel was even depicted in a recent series of American Horror Story: Hotel under the guise of the Hotel Cortez.”

Elisa spent five days there quite uneventfully, sightseeing, and then she was going to check out and head on to Santa Cruz. She would predictably call her parents every day, but when they didn’t get the call, they called the LAPD to report her daughter as missing. Dogs and police searched the hotel, even the roof, and they found nothing. It was only later that the CCTV footage of her acting strange was found.

Almost two weeks passed, and she was nowhere to be found. Then, guests at the hotel began to complain about the strange drinking water they were, no disrespect, naive enough to trust. Don’t they know American water is toxic anyway?

The water was discolored and disgusting, and low water pressure was observed when people turned on the taps at the hotel. The horrifying truth was revealed when a plumbing check was taken, and Elise’s body was discovered in the water tank, contaminating it: people were drinking her corpse.

An article about this continues:

“The only evidence of Elise, before she went missing is the strange CCTV footage of her inside the lift of the hotel. It was released by detectives in hope that someone may recognise her and be able to assist with the investigation. In the early hours of the morning she enters the elevator and seems to be hiding from an unseen presence.”

Then in the footage, she proceeded to press several of the lift buttons, and she oddly stands in the corner of the space, moving her hands in odd, disturbing gestures as if she is reasoning with someone or trying to talk to something that isn’t there: or is it?

She is trying to press multiple buttons on the lift, but the lift is mysteriously ceasing to function during this time as well. The final time she is seen on camera, the lift again continues to operate normally.

All kinds of things have been pointed out about the death of this woman, the impossibility of how it happened, every last thing. It was examined in detail at this link.

In conclusion, this is a serious, disturbing and strong indication of some kind of paranormal force, at least that’s how a lot of people see it.
