Lots of discussion on this crime on a thread in the LA subforum: no discussion on Cecil Hotel?

Clearly from the elevator video this Lady was suffering either a mental breakdown or some drug or alcohol induced bizarre behaviors. Sad.
Here is a link with an article about this young Lady, and the hotel elevator video. I hope they find out what happened to this poor Lady.

I don't see where she was acting so oddly in that elevator video.

Missing Canadian Woman Seen Acting Strangely in Dumpy L.A. Hotel

I think she looked like she was on something/a bit tipsy/or being followed. Strange video. It does look like she was talking to someone about the elevator not working there in the end and they led her away. Funny they never stepped in front of the camera either.

Woman's body found in LA hotel cistern providing drinking water to guests | World news | guardian.co.uk

"To get to the tanks, which are on a platform at least 10 ft above the roof, someone would have to go to the top floor then climb a staircase and enter a locked door and turn off an emergency alarm that prevents roof access. Another ladder would have to be taken to the platform and a person would have to climb the side of the tank. Lopez said there were no security cameras on the roof."

Better start interviewing the staff...
I have to wonder how many others have gone missing from there.

I doubt someone who looked confused by an elevator could pick a lock and disable an alarm PLUS climb up a tank...
The whole thing almost seems like a two person con job to trick someone into becoming a victim.

I suspect that she was just nipping out to push the "down" button again in hopes of getting the dang elevator to close so she could get where she was going.
