I recently read an interesting article that was brought to my attention by Patrick Whyte of Conspiracy Culture on Facebook. It is about a girl named Elisa Lam who died at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. The hotel is said to be haunted and a couple of serial killers, one being Richard Ramirez, have stayed there. People have committed suicide and have been murdered there.
There is a video recording of Elisa in an elevator of the hotel just before she died. It looks like the elevator isn’t working because she presses the buttons, but the doors don’t close. Then it looks like she hears something outside the elevator. I think she heard people arguing or someone being threatened because she peeks out of the elevator then tries to hide. When she steps out of the elevator, she waves her arms around. Some people think she’s crazy. I don’t know about her being crazy. Lots of people dance around and do silly stuff when they think no one is looking. I know I do. Maybe she is feeling a cold spot where a ghost is present.
After she is gone from the elevator, the doors open and close three times. Later she is found dead in a water tank on the roof, naked. The door to the roof is still locked and has an alarm that wasn’t triggered.
Maybe she took the stairs since the elevator didn’t work and made it up to the roof via the fire escape. I don’t even know if you can get to the fire escape from the stairs. There are details missing from the article that would be interesting to know. Like where did her clothes go? And did she have a history of mental illness? Were the elevators broken at the time?
There are other interesting tidbits in the article that I won’t repeat here.
