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.

This case appears to me as cecil hotel being negligent in security for their residents. I'm in the opinion that it is the minimum that they can sue for...I have yet done research on cases but will in due time.
