Did the show state why she stayed at the Cecile? With so many hotels in L.A., did they pick the Cecile because of it's creepy history? How odd the show never mentioned her being bipolar when that's the reason most are saying she died because of her mental state, being paranoid, jumping into the tank afraid someone was following her and so on.
If the show never stated she had issues with being bipolar, how did they explain this away? Also, if she had been killed by someone, the coroner certainly would have found bruises or some signs of there being some kind of struggle, no?

^ No the show didn't say why she chose the Cecile, but they made it look like she chose that place on a whim (w/ the suggestion from that seemingly helpful guy stranger she ran into), which I find odd. If I'm traveling alone to ANYWHERE & especially another whole country, I'm going to have everything as planned out, mapped out, itineraries, etc. down to a tee as much as possible to hopefully avoid as much trouble down the road as possible (getting lost, not having a place to stay, etc.).

The show said the coroner's report for cause of death: Accidental drowning...that's all.

By the way, do a search for "Cecil Hotel" and "Elisa Lam" & you'll see the other threads on this board about it. There are other threads in the Los Angeles, True Crime, etc. sections.
