A few months ago, we reported on the incredibly creepy and gruesome case of Elisa Lam, a Canadian tourist who was found in a water tank at the top of the infamous Cecil Hotel, a hotel well known to have housed two serial killers and a myriad of strange deaths and suicides. The facts of the case initially left one almost certain that foul play was involved in this young woman’s death. Then a haunting surveillance video surfaced, showing Elisa in the elevator the night she disappeared.
Her behavior in the video is erratic, strange, almost occultist in places. From it, one draws one or both of the following conclusions:
1. Elisa was being followed (probably by the person who may have killed her, if she was killed)
2. Elisa was on drugs, which would both explain her bizarre behavior and make her vulnerable to any of the loons habituating the seedy hotel or its downtown Los Angeles environs.
Fast forward a few months…still no toxicology report. A near media blackout on the case. Besides a few online smatterings, it is almost as if the autopsy has been blotted out of the records.
Fast forward another month to May 16th. The LAPD says the toxicology report will be released that week. Fast forward to June….still no toxicology report.
Then, abruptly, the coroner releases a report saying that the death was…accidental. Yes, accidental.
It turns out Elisa’s body was found nude, with no signs of trauma or drug intoxication. The culprit: bi-polar disorder. That’s right, no foul play, no drugs–depression. Really bad depression.
With only a little research we found some supporting evidence of this condition in Elisa’s blog, Ether Fields. Elisa, it seems, struggled with depression for many years. In one entry, she writes: “I had a relapse at the start of the term and had to drop 2 of the 3 courses I was taking. Now I am down to one course and I have missed 3 weeks of classes since my sleeping pattern is completely reversed.”
According to the the final police report on this case, her depression escalated to bi-polarity, which resulted in her finding her way to the locked roof of the Cecil Hotel, climbing to the top of a 10 foot water tank, removing her clothes, and then inserting herself into the tank via the 16 inch latch door on the top. Either she drowned herself in the tank, or she accidentally fell in, perhaps while skinny dipping in her tragically deranged psychological state. We will probably never know for sure.
A fascinating second to second analysis of her behavior in the elevator suggests Elisa was feeling a wide gamut of dissonant and fluctuating emotions the night she died, wild mood swings that include confidence, anxiety, fear, joy and even sexual preening. Hauntingly, this analysis concludes that Elisa Lam was playing some kind of bizarre form of hide and seek. Given what we now ‘know’ about her bi-polarity, she may have been both the person hiding and the person searching.
In our last writeup of this baffling–and, admittedly, sad–case, we posited a third conclusion to be drawn from the surveillance tape: that Elisa had in fact been possessed by the same insidious spirits that infected serial killers Richard Ramirez, aka the Night Stalker, and Jack Unterweger, as well as the myriad other occupants that either died mysteriously or committed suicide at the Cecil Hotel, which also happens to have been one of the last places Elizabeth Short, or the Black Dahlia, was seen on the night of her grisly murder in 1947.
At the time of our last address, we confidently predicted that if no drugs were found in Elisa Lam’s system, this would be a clear cut case of paranormal possession. Of course, we didn’t know at the time that Elisa had a history of severe depression. Even if we had, though, would we have concluded that Elisa trudged to the locked, alarm-triggered roof of the Cecil Hotel, climbed to the top of a 10 foot cistern and drowned herself? It’s just so utterly bizarre….
And unfortunately, it gets more bizarre.
A YouTube user recently claimed that the Elisa Lam CCTV footage had been slowed down and possibly edited. He makes a case that the tape was tampered with and that we have not yet seen the full extent of Elisa Lam’s final video appearance.
Obviously, more investigation would have to be conducted to confirm whether or not the video was actually slowed down and edited. The timestamp jump certainly does seem suspicious. But then again, everything in a conspiracy theory must, by definition, seem suspicious.
An even more mind-numbing new discovery concerns an outbreak of tuberculosis in Los Angeles at around the same time as Elisa Lam’s disappearance. According to the CDC, 4,500 people were exposed to a drug-resistant form of TB. Incredibly, the name of the TB test used to make this diagnosis was called the LAM ELISA test. It is a whopping coincidence, one that has actually led online conspiracists to conclude that the Elisa Lam case is part of a much more convoluted false flag biological attack.
Whether this Lam Elisa TB test is an example of predictive programming, false flag communication, or merely an incredible coincidence, the fact remains: one can’t rule out the possibility that there is some kind of a coverup going on. Take an already baffling case of a body found in a water tank and add in a haunted hotel, a TB infection with a test seemingly named after the victim, a possibly doctored surveillance tape and an abnormally delayed release of a toxicology report.
To conclude this latest dispatch in the increasingly bizarre case of Elisa Lam, we offer up yet another incredible coincidence, or another hint of predictive programming. In the 2002 film Dark Water, a girl falls into a water tank at the top of a hotel and drowns. The infected water creeps down into the hotel walls, similar to what happened at the Cecil. In the 2005 American remake of the film, two of the characters are named Dahlia and Ceci.
The Synchronicity of Evil rears its ugly head again…
