Cecil Hotel



The Cecil Hotel is in Downtown Los Angeles. It is a budget hotel with 600 rooms, constructed in 1924. This Hotel is known for several suicides and its criminal activcreated ities. Most notably, the hotel was the reported residence for serial killers Richard Ramirez in 1985 and Jack Unterweger in 1991.[2] 
The nude body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian student, in 2013, was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof. Lam was missing January 31, and her decomposed body was discovered on February 19 by a maintenance worker in one of the rooftop water tanks. The guests had complained about low water pressure and water that "tasted funny".
Sadly, authorities ruled Lam's death accidental. Video surveillance footage taken from inside an elevator showed Lam acting strangely, pressing multiple elevator buttons, hiding in the corner of the elevator, and waving her arms wildly. 
In 2011, the Cecil Hotel was re-branded as "Stay on Main", and a new website, stayonmain.com, was created.

who is Elisa Lam?

So I have been writing about Elisa Lam. Some of you that came to this site may not know the story about her. So here it is:
"In February 2013, the body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian student, was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof. Lam went missing January 31, and her body was discovered on February 19. The body was discovered after patrons complained of low water pressure,[3] with authorities later ruling Lam's death as an accidental drowning. Video surveillance footage taken from inside an elevator showed Lam acting strangely, pressing multiple buttons and waving her arms, causing widespread speculation about the cause of her death. " Reference wikipedia. Elisa: Rest in Peace. You are in our memories.

Another Lawsuit to Cecil Hotel

Vancouver newspaper has reported that Elisa's parent have decided to file a lawsuit against Cecil Hotel. It is long over due. Safety is everyone's issue in a hotel, and not providing the them to a paying customer is definitely negligent. While it is probably not written in the contract, the hotel has the obligation to let the residents know the dangers.

Please take a look at the pictures on this site. It clearly  shows there is someone there.
