UNSOLVED: The Bizarre Mystery of Elisa Lam's Death

In January 2013, Canadian student Elisa Lam was last seen alive by an employee of the Hotel Cecil in Los Angeles. Lam disappeared on that day, and she remained missing for several weeks after she failed to check out of the property as scheduled in February 2013.

On 14 February 2013, surveillance video from the Hotel Cecil in Los Angeles was released by police; in those lengthy clips, Lam was seen lingering in an elevator and behaving in an unusual fashion. Many viewers of the unsettling clips inferred Lam was interacting with an unknown person or persons off camera, while others suspected the young woman was experiencing an episode of acute mental illness or was under the influence of drugs

Another matter of interest to the public was that even police were stumped as to how Lam’s body came to end up in a water tank that is difficult to access. Foul play was initially investigated as a possibility, but the coroner’s office ruled Lam’s death to be an accidental one.
