The Elisa Lam Case – What are they Hiding?
There are also some odd coincidences surrounding this case, which in themselves are an interesting read (in particular the tuberculosis and Dark Water references). But I’m not here to get into that, I’m here to speculate. First, I want you to take a look at the video footage below. I am basing all of my speculations off of this footage, and it was the longest and most complete footage I could find. If you find more complete footage, PLEASE let me know.
My findings come from about a month ago, when I first saw the video (didn’t have this website back then). I was immediately suspicious about the timing in the video, so I watched it multiple times while paying close attention to the timer at the bottom of the clip. Upon close inspection, it’s apparent that the timer does an unnatural skip – this strongly suggests that some of the video was cut out. Don’t just take my word for it, look for it around 2:49 in the clip. Just rewind it a little to get a feel for how those numbers should be going up, then you will see the unnatural change from the 24th to the 25th minute. This change occurs within 5 seconds instead of 60, which leaves 55 seconds – almost an entire minute – of blindness.
There seems to be substantial skipping around that time. While I expected this, it is still disturbing. Why was the video footage edited? Was it a mistake in technology? Was a possible murderer behind this? Were the police simply hiding sensitive case information? Or was there some bigger force at play? The questions raised by this are endless – while there is a chance that the cut out footage is trivial, there is an equal and probably more likely chance that it was of importance. Your guess is as good as mine as to what could have transpired over that time.
Because these findings were a month old, I’ve just decided to do some research to see if anyone else has caught on, and it seems I’m not alone. Check out the below video, which shows that the original clip was slowed down – possibly the by-product of heavy editing.
