The Mystery Behind The Terrifying Death of Elisa Lam


Many people were horrified and shocked about the death of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian student, who was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof from Los Angeles. Elisa went missing since January 31, and her body was discovered on February 19. The body was discovered after patrons complained of low water pressure.

What makes her death even more unnerving is that the L.A. County Department of Coroner ruled out the death as “accidental due to drowning” meaning that there is no foul play occurred and even confirmed that no traces of drugs or alcohol were found during the autopsy. But how was she able to get herself through the hotel's water tank which is locked and equipped with alarm system?

The Video


The Video Evidence that was released by cops days before her dead body was found adds up to the creepiness of her death. An elevator surveillance tape that shows Elisa’s behavior only a few moments before she lost her life can be seen. The four-minute video was also shared on YouTube shows Elisa pressing all of the elevator buttons, waiting for it to move. When she sees that the elevator doors are not closing, she starts behaving extremely odd. When she finally stepped out of the elevator, She is seen waving her arms bizarrely.

The Hotel


According to Wikipedia, The Cecil Hotel is in Downtown L.A, a budget hotel with 600 guest rooms (originally 700). Constructed in 1927, the hotel was intended for business travelers but in the 1950s it gained a reputation as a residence for transients. The Hotel is known for several suicides. In the 50’s and 60’s the Cecil was known as a place that people would go to jump out of one of the hotel’s windows to commit suicide. 

  • Helen Gurnee leaped from a 7th floor window on October 22, 1954. 
  • Julia Moore jumped from her eighth floor room window on February 11, 1962.
  • Pauline Otton jumped from a ninth floor window on October 12, 1962. Otton landed on George Gianinni, 65, who was walking on the side walk, 90 feet below. Both were killed.
  •  
The hotel is also known for criminal activity which includes three terrifying murders. Most notably, the hotel was the reported residence for serial killers Richard Ramirez in 1985 and Jack Unterwerger in 1991. Elisa Lam's death is the third murder that happened on the hotel.

The Hotel's background adds up to the mystery of Lam's death.
