She didn't seem scared. She looked casual and at times, maybe even playful.

She was apparently just a normal college girl.

I think she was drugged. Appeared fulnerable. Some guy(s) saw her acting strange and took advantage of the situation by raping her, and then killed her.

The question is, was she drugged by her killer(s)?

From what I've read, the autopsy report indicated that she didn't drown. The maintenance worker found her body nude in the bottom of the tank, which makes me think her body wasn't bloated. So she couldn't have been dead for long. Also, how did she get past the locked door? I believe it had a combination lock.

Maybe the killer is a hotel employee with acces to keys to the roof?

If her friend thinks she was drugged from the film - she probably was. Some sleaze that knows the building probably attacked her, killed her and dumped her in the tank.

I wonder if she had her cell phone on her? Most women alone in a strange city would have their phone with them. If she was in her right mind she could have called for help.

I stayed there in 1979..it was a nice place compared to some I had been in, not the best neighborhood but it was LA and for me it was another world.
Now if people that knew her say she was acting drugged, maybe she was or there was a side no one knew about...we all think we know people but then find out things about them we've never dared dream.To me she looks like she's playing..someone scared doesn't act the way she did. Maybe some game gone bad...Anyone who works there or has friends who work there may have access to the roof or anywhere in the hotel.

Yes, maybe part of the game involved hiding in the tank and she hit her head and got stuck or something.

"In order to get to the roof top, where the tanks are, you need to go through locked, ALARMED doors, that only employees have access to. Second, in order to get the body out, police had to CUT the top of the tank and get her out. Question is, how on earth did they even PUT her in the tank if they needed to cut to take her out?"
