The Elisa Lam Case – What are they Hiding?
The case of Elisa Lam has, over the past month or so, become quite infamous. Elisa Lam attended the same University as I do, so the case caught my attention and I found myself contemplating her death and analyzing released footage. Before I go over my findings and musings, I’ll give you a quick background on what happened:
Elisa Lam goes on a mysterious voyage, alone, to southern California. She then stays in a dodgy LA hotel – this hotel is notorious for housing serial killers. What happens next is both disturbing and mind-boggling. As the video footage of her last known sighting below shows, she starts behaving erratic, and then goes missing. Police search the entire hotel and the neighboring area for her, but are unable to find her. Then, after a while, residents of the hotel start complaining about low water pressure in their showers. The hotel staff decides to take a look at the water tank on the roof, and finds the naked body of Elisa Lam at the bottom of the tank! This tank is not easily accessible – getting yourself, let alone another body, into it is an amazing feat. What makes it even more perplexing is that the roof area is under tight security and surveillance.
