Sign Language? Was she signing?


Was she near sighted? Did she not have her glasses? She is also not carrying a purse or bag.

She was either doped up on something, or trying to get away from someone nearby. It might even be he or she was following her and then caught up to her in the hall near the elevator. She seems to be interwcting with someone in the hall at certain points. I read on another forum it's possible she hit the button that holds it open for cleaning. Also, apparently only one of the two elevators worked well, the other was known to be slow and unresponsive. I'm betting she was in the bad one. She seems to be hitting buttons in a frustrated manner.

But yeab it will be interesting to see if they figure this all out.

She was in LA visiting - whats so strange about that? Maybe she had never been there and wanted to know what it was like -a lot of people travel alone - not a good idea for a woman in a seedy area though.

They said she was chased by the murderers, but she didn't seem scared. She seemed almost playful.

Here's a video of her inside the elevator. Makes you wonder whether a ghost was trailing/haunting her.

My take on this? She's acting out some sort of game, like a computer game. Remember Dungeons & Dragons? That was awhile back. Many kids got into trouble trying to act out the game, usually in old tunnels, abandonded buildings, etc.

they should look into her background, if she's heavy into games.

Also, I feel she was on some sort of drug. the thought she might be using sign language is interesting, i hope someone who knows sign language can intrepert this.

The L.A. coroners' office indicates it will be weeks before toxicology tests are in, which seems to be that they'll be testing for just about everything, so let's hope the time in the tank doesn't cross contaminate the findings.

Hotels with recording systems almost always have a camera for front ingress/egress. It protects the front desk clerk 24 hours, and so would indicate whether the client left the hotel and did not return, or never left at all. They have a very good camera inside the elevator, so where are the other camera shots and records?

Possible: They already have a suspect and are waiting for that suspect to make a mistake. You don't get up on an alarmed rooftop and up a ladder and down a crawl space sized door alone.

There's too much that doesn't make any sense, and what a loss.

This fascinates me. Do you notice how casually she walks into the elevator - not in a hurry at all - not like someone being followed.

Then when she goes in and out it looks a little OCDish - her feet go out of the elevator in perfect squares and then in again like in a pattern.

Only those close to her would know if those hand gestures were normal for her - or something she did when under stress.

Do you think it was bath salts - supposedly those drugs make people very hot and she might have crawled into the tank to cool off. How would a tourist know there was a tank or how to unlock the door, etc. Maybe she was doing drugs with a local? Or was slipped drugs?

Does anyone know what time it was when she was in the elevator?
