What's weird is that it's always reported that Lam's access to the roof is mysterious, that she had to get past a locked, alarmed door. They don't even lock the water tanks on the roof, let alone the door to the roof.

I think the news media wanted to generate a story. Mystery sells since all kinds of theories fill the void.

Looking at the elevator video, I always felt the only consistent explanation is if she was on LSD. No one does that circular gesture with their hands while they're scared for their life or even talking to somebody - she was tripping. And given her history of mental problems and depression, and the fact she was tripping by herself, it's no surprise to me it ended this way as tragic as it did.

I'm sure she ran across a ton of low-lifes by skid-row who offered to sell her all sorts of drugs.

Did they test for LSD on her toxicology report? Never looked into it, I know they tested her for some controlled substances but they never test for all and LSD is often left off the list.

She didn't have any drugs in her system, but it seems to me like she just stopped taking her bi-polar prescriptions because she was partying while on vacation and ended up having a manic episode. That said, lots of weird stuff was going on the last few days of her life, and not a lot of it can be bully explained by bi-polar disorder.

There is a lot that we'll probably never know. But the "official" story is far from complete.

Was it during the weekend? That's crazy, I booked a couple of days during the week so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Plus I got the most basic room, had to use community bathroom/shower

It's a violation of the Fire Code to lock the door providing roof access.

I don't know why anyone would want to stay there.
