Hotel Cecil Haunted By The Death Of Elisa Lam

I was in downtown shopping and taking photos earlier today.  The parking garage where I parked was adjacent to the Hotel Cecil. I've walked by the hotel numerous times but today was odd because I had just heard about the mysterious death of Elisa Lam and watched the eerie video of her in the hotel elevator.
So I did a little story. It is an unfortunate reality that being a women and traveling alone is a calculated risk. Elisa Lam said that she was being stalked. She ended up in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil. How she ended up on the roof top and dead inside the tank without SURVEILLANCE footage is beyond me. Considering there are video cameras everywhere and Google Maps has satellites all over the place. But that is another story. Some say she was murdered. I find it hard to believe that she would have opened up a water tank which you can see partially in the video and climb in. Also highly bizarre that no one saw anything or her acting strangely in the halls. Days passed while her decomposing body lay in the water tank and hotel guests complained of foul smelling water and low water pressure. Shortly thereafter, an outbreak of tuberculosis hit Skid Row in the vicinity where Lam was found. Who knows if the truth will ever be told. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. May Elisa rest in peace.
