EVERYDAY STRANGE - Elisa Lam, Part II

BEFORE YOU START, BE SURE TO READ PART I


CONCLUSIONS
There are few, if any solid conclusions in this case, mostly pie-in-the-sky speculation. But let's put on our thinking caps and try for a slice of that pie anyway.

This case haunts me. Elisa Lam is like the little sister of a close friend. She's from my town and she's from a culture that I recognize and am closely familiar with. My parents used to eat at her parent's restaurant. And as I mentioned, she's buried in the same cemetery as my young uncle, the same uncle who, with his brother, introduced me to Metallica and AC/DC and Slayer at a time when I was too young to realize that music got any worse than that. I never knew her and would never have in life, but this death hits close to home. I want to know what happened. I want to solve it. And if anybody is responsible I want them found, exposed and punished.

But that's the thing, we don't know if anybody else was involved.

The elevator video haunts many who watch it. There are so many "freaky" behaviors in it that it becomes unforgettable. I believe that she is playing some kind of cat-and-mouse game with an unidentified person, most likely a man that she is attracted to. I also believe that she is wearing his shorts in the video. I originally thought she was wearing a skirt, but she is in fact wearing a man's black shorts, they are large enough on her to fall past her knees at the bottom. She was also not wearing a bra, or anyway, a bra was not found in the water tank along with her body and her other clothes. She was wearing a shirt, a zip-up hoodie, black lace underwear and a man's shorts. This sounds like post-coital attire to me, but that is pure speculation. It does seem odd to me though, that someone as interested in fashion as Elisa would go around in a man's shorts and seemingly hastily thrown on wardrobe without there being some kind of a reason for it. Remember in part one when the autopsy stated there was subcutaneous pooling of blood in her anus, but no trauma. It's possible that this was due to consensual sex. Not saying it was, just saying it's possible.

Watch the video again, her face shows no signs of distress, nothing to indicate she feared imminent harm. Watch the part of the video when she steps outside the elevator. For starters, if she was hiding and truly feared being found, she wouldn't have stepped out of the elevator in the first place. She's acting like someone who is hiding that wants to be found or at the very least, doesn't fear being found. She peeks her head out the door and looks both ways in a noticeable fashion. She hides again, then takes cute, shuffling little steps toward the exit and watches the hallway, then hops out hoping to surprise someone. Then she playfully crab-walks in and back out of the elevator again.

We know that there are two elevators, side-by-side at the old Cecil Hotel (now re-branded as the Stay-on-Main), on the opposite wall between the two elevators is a mirror. When she steps outside the elevator it appears she is facing the mirror and fixing her hair.

The next moment on the video is the one that is truly bizarre. She goes back into the elevator and pushes all the buttons again, I suppose hoping to jam it up. Some speculate that she does this to prevent someone chasing her from using the elevator to catch up to her by sending it on a random journey. But again, she shows no signs of serious distress at being found.

The next part of the video is the one that disturbs most who see it. She makes hand gestures with her fingers spread out. Some people compare the gestures to the way they imagine a grey alien might move, fluidly but in an unrecognizable pattern. Watching the video at 135% speed, removes some of the freakiness of the hand gestures. After watching the video countless times it seems to me that she is calling out to somebody that she can't see. If you look at the selfie picture she took which I posted at the top of Part I, it seems that it was not entirely uncommon for her to make these kind of fingers spread apart hand gestures. It's impossible to know what she was saying when calling out, but it seems like she was getting bored of the hide and seek game and hoping to end it, warning that however was playing with her that the game was about to end.

Immediately after she makes the seemingly bizarre hand gestures, she counts to three. This is the most obvious part of the video but it took quite a few plays before I caught it. She is calling out and counting to three on the fingers of her left hand. She even bends her knees when she touches her fingers, the way one would when playfully doing so.

But after she counts to three and no one appears, she looks both ways down the hall, then plays with her again before walking off, never to be seen alive again.

Is it possible that the elevator footage showed part of a game of hide-and-seek? What if, since Elisa was never found by whoever she was playing with in the elevator, she took the game one step further and attempted to hide in the water tank? Is that a smart, rational decision to make? No, but there is some evidence that she wasn't taking as much of her medication as she might have, potentially throwing her cognitive skills off-balance, as touched on in Part I.

The question then becomes, if she was playing hide-and-seek in the video with an unseen party, why did that person not come forward before or after her body was found? Is it possible that she wasn't actually playing hide-and-seek with anybody, that her play friend was a hallucination? That's a stretch but it's possible.

I wonder about why 54 seconds were edited out of the elevator footage. I've got a couple ideas of why that might be. Either it shows nothing interesting, just an empty hallway and so was chopped out as unimportant, or it shows somebody else, somebody unconnected to the disappearance who just happened to be walking by. If the latter is the case, then that could help explain why Elisa walked away form the elevator at the end of the video as seemingly disappointed or dare I say somewhat embarrassed as she appeared to be. She was calling out, counting to three, her friend didn't re-appear, but somebody else did. In the final analysis though, these ideas are all just speculation. Still, the case haunts me.

I saw a recent news report that police were looking into two hotel employees as possible suspects in Lam's murder, but the source is dubious and I haven't seen a follow-up.

Carmen Yarira Esparza Noriega
One of the strangest elements of all in this case, is the recent discovery of the body of Mexican actress Carmen Yarira Esparza Noriega in a water tank. There are a couple of coincidences between Carmen and Elisa's cases that may lead you to think they are connected. Both women disappeared in February, Elisa in 2013, Carmen in 2014, both were found in water tanks after locals complained of funny or foul tasting water and California and Mexico are relatively close in proximity. It's not without precedent for a killer to move from state to state or even country to country to avoid detection or it may be possible that Carmen's murderer was inspired by the seamier details of Elisa's case. I'll provide a bunch of links to Carmen's story at the end of the "sources" section.

I've barely scratched the surface here. I haven't talked about the Cecil Hotel's checkered history, which includes multiple suicides and stays by serial killers including Richard Ramirez. There are many low income long-term residents of the hotel at least one of which is a well-known sex offender who was a resident at the hotel at the time of Elisa's disappearance. He was on many videos about the case including one on CNN, and the news either failed to mention or didn't realize just who they were talking to. Apparently he was one of the most vocal residents to complain about the water. At the time, the hotel was facing possible re-zoning and he had a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. There is speculation that he and another long-term resident acting as his accomplice staged the murder, but I don't buy it.

I didn't talk about the other bizarre coincidences surrounding the circumstances of this case, like how it resembles the story of Japanese horror film Dark Water, right down to the actress playing the mother in the film wearing a similar looking wardrobe to Elisa in the elevator video. I didn't talk about the Tuberculosis detection kit, called LAM-ELISA that was being used during the time of her disappearance in the area to help stifle a possible outbreak among the homeless. I didn't talk about the last known witness to see her alive being a store clerk at a bookstore called ... The Last Bookstore. And there are more little things, little echoes that jab away at you until you are unsettled enough to believe that Elisa Lam was killed by fate itself.

Elisa was a real person, a beautiful girl with self-image problems who battled depression and felt isolated in her own active mind. Many if not all young people feel depressed or self-conscious, I wish I could have been there to tell her that it's perfectly normal to feel that way, at any age. But I can't.

  1. do you think that maybe she was triggered ( brainwashed ) into some ritual? I'm talking about the hidden elite here. They have the power and the ability to force the police to cover up everything they want.

    1. Not really. The closest parallel is the satanic abuse rituals alleged to have taken place on or around Vancouver Island but those claims were soundly debunked.

    2. I've been trying to speak out, but I'm being censored. This was a CIA operation. She was under MK Ultra trauma based mind control- research it. It's real, the government has admitted to it... but claim it ended in 1970s. It didnt. Pizzagate is connected to this, that's real as well. I awknowledge this sounds crazy, but I'm saying the truth. That hotel is a reprogramming center and linked to the CIA. She did in a sense kill herself, but it was because she under a hypnotic state caused by trauma based mind control. The movie was CIA Psy ops... many songs/movies/etc trigger alters to come out. Can't explain it all in 1 post, and I'm being monitored by the CIA. I'm a victim of this, I'm not making this up! Wish I was... my grandfather was directly involved in project paperclip and project monarch, and when he tried escaping in 1964 (he was a us military doctor... very smart, not crazy!), he woke up his family in the night saying the CIA was after him. He was put in a military psych hospital for 6mo. I have proof, but any time I try recording, YouTube will find an excuse for me not to upload in attempt to censor me because I'm watched. I could seriously die for saying this stuff... I'm not doing it for fun, I promise, research yourself. It's done to push an agenda. This particular case was to cover up the TB outbreak, the test is "lam Elise". So obvious and in your face. This is how predictive programming works, especially the Simpsons. People are more opt to accept things as they are if they see it first on TV, movies, radio... and most are too blind to realize they've been programmed... not that it's their fault. ALL MASS SHOOTERS WENT THROUGH THIS, ALL POLITICIANS GO THROUGH THIS, AND ALL ENTERTAINERS GO THROUGH THIS. WAKE UP TO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING... have memory blackouts that are unexplained?? Are you hypersexualized?? Have bizarre reoccurring nightmares?? You are probably under MK!! Psychiatric drugs, bi polar, multiple personality disorder, and dissociative identity disorder diagnosis' are given to these victims. You don't have to believe me, but please do your research... you'll see I'm telling the truth. I have absolutely NOTHING to gain by telling the truth... only a lot to lose and public mockery. Spread my message, please!! It comes back to extra terrestrial beings, but that is literally all I can say,because it won't let me post if I elaborate more. Annunaki, draconian. All celebs have alters, and Elisa did too. Ramirez and Elizabeth Short were both under MK Ultra. JUST RESEARCH, PLEASE. The footage isn't completely released because it's a secret CIA reprogramming center. CHARLES ALLEN JR... MK. MAURA MURRAY... MK. JONBENET RAMSEY... MK (she was going through programming for MK Ultra beta sex kitten programming when it went too far and she died- her brother was going through programming and witnessed it, hence his awfully strange behavior til this day!). JOHN WAYNE GACY... MK. When John Wayne Gacy was killed, he claimed he didn't do it... I believe that is what he truly thought! He has no memory, but was the fall guy for the boys in Chicago (where much of pizzagate comes from!)... these boys were being programmed, and for every person programmed, people die and you are forced to witness. I recognize this sounds insane, and people won't believe, but some of the trauma I was forced to see was unbelievable! Canabalism. My privates were burned with hot iron... that's the least disturbing I got. Franklin coverup. This stuff is all linked together, and the CIA is responsible!! That's why arrests aren't being made in pizzagate!! Research for yourself... all I'm begging you to do.

      Charles Allen Jr spoke about the periodic table of elements... he knew he was being followed by the CIA, so he had to talk in code or not at all or the call would be cut. He was talking about lithium, which is commonly forced upon victims to oppress critical thinking.

  2. Curioser and curioser.

    If Carmen's killer is the same as Elisa's, I wonder if you could find a connection through records of employees who quit working at the Cecil Hotel between February 2013 and February 2014. Fleeing to Mexico is a common thought after committing a murder, especially close to the border. Although Los Angeles to Mexico City is a 31 hr drive, the murderer would have wanted to avoid public transportation because of surveillance and records. IF. . .they were smart, that is.

    1. My idea is assuming the murderer worked at the hotel. If not, then it'd be harder to pinpoint. But maybe the murderer was a guest at the hotel too? There'd be a record of that somewhere.

  7. Any idea why there are posts on her tumblr even after she disappeared and was found dead? I also found some creepy posts on there like her mentioning that she hopes theres no creepers out to stalk her, a model she frequently posts sharing the same first name (one photo of her a month posted after her death), and a photo with text about a man watching a sleeping girl through a window who later changes his life (also posted after her death). Its just so creepy.

    1. Hey Leilani, thanks so much for reading the article. I don't want to be dismissive of any strange detail and this case is stuffed full of strange details, but I've assumed from the beginning that the later tumblr posts were 'scheduled' from an earlier date.

      The fact that Elisa talked about what she called 'creepers' is indeed a creepy fact in its own right. There's much about the dating scene in Vancouver that is esoteric. Many men find women unapproachable and many women find the local men to be creepy, so she may have had some kind of fixation with the topic.

      My thing is, I don't want to be swayed too far in any direction by the 'creepers' post because in context it looks like a giant red flag but in truth it's evidence of nothing. Once again, I hate to sound dismissive because I've thought a lot about that post.

  9. Hi all,

    Here is my full review of this case from Australia. A lot of research has gone into this and will include my theories.

    Lets start on the 31st January 2013. The temperature that day was below 70c chilly and stayed that way until about 10am on the 1st Feb 13. She went to the bookstore (opening times 10am - 10pm) on the 31st, purchased gifts for her family and friends. (Remember she has no phone - lost days earlier at speakeasy). (However still called family everyday except the 31st). She returns to the hotel alone (verified by hotel staff). Probably goes to her room and looks at the gifts she purchased, gets on her laptop, blogs whatever..... then although she had planned to stay in her room, she goes up to the 14th floor to meet 2nd person (who she had opportunity to meet over the previous 3 days at the Cecil). She does not take a purse or glasses meaning she has no intention of leaving the hotel. The only portable thing she has is her key card. We can assume she had no intention of staying out too late as she would call her family every day, (possibly via internet laptop in her room), however she stays out longer.
    LIFT FOOTAGE - At this point in the evening we finally see Elisa reaching the lift at 11.50pm from the left - the side that has rooms located on it. Relaxed she goes into the lift but hopes that her friend will perhaps come, however she is unsure about leaving them its her last night. She hears a noise to the right (showers bathroom) this startles her a bit, peeks out sees no one. She knows she should return to her room to call her family, (they have a restaurant so work late) but wants to go back she presses the door hold button again, reasons with going back, and then after some playful hand movements counting to 3, she decides - return.
    At this point the rest about her death is that it perhaps was accidental in the room and her body was transported to the 15th floor. As the Chinese investigators state it takes less than 4 minutes to do this and one person can easily achieve it. So why do I think this is not an accident of her own doing. Also if there is another person involved only 2 ways to communicate - 1 Verbal 2- Written. So I am led to believe the perp whoever she grew to know over the previous 3 days at the hotel, she may have even been to their room before, this makes sense with her casualness. Now the other person may have become more attracted and as this was the last night felt it was the last opportunity to engage in something.... maybe she declined and went to the lifts but then decided to go back. However all of the above fits into plausible.
    Finally the most damaging evidence I believe why she did not do this alone.
    1- Rooftop very dark and cold and she had no glasses with her.
    2- Why get naked and then throw your own clothes in, including your Watch which you had taken off.
    3- Many people use the rooftop socially and it is clear the alarm systems do not work.
    4- She had 3 days before to meet someone at this hotel, very easy to do and chat and connect.
    5- Long term residents know the hotel inside out.
    6 - LAPD admit in their report they did not search the rooms on level 14 as they have to have reasonable cause to do so, so would need a warrant hence its the only areas that were not searched. Only some rooms where accessed by hotel staff in the search but I have not seen anything that states otherwise.
    7- Transportation of the body is acheiveable from 14th to 15th.
    8- Elisa did not have it in her to either suicide or be that stupid as to jump into a tank of water naked, her blogs and character show a beautiful smart girl, going through life learning and had full intentions of returning to Vncouver (she bought gifts).

    1. They say she was on the 14th floor while trying to access the elevator. Is there any elevator footage of her going up to that floor?

      Delete
  10. The only other point I want to note is that if she had been out most of the day and she returned to her room, the 2nd person knowing where her room was as they become friends placed a note under her door inviting her up to the 14th floor, it is plausible she initially thought "no" then later went up taking the note with her to spend the evening with them..... remembering she had no phone.

    ReplyDelete
  11. My final words:

    Why it points towards a resident / worker:
    If she died, where is the only place you can put this body to allow you to have enough time to either leave the hotel or clean the crime scene without trying to get it out of the hotel:
    1- Inside the only place in which no one will suspect - the water tanks: Everywhere else is used by the Hotel: Its close to the crime scene the 14th floor: Its really not rocket science: This indicates knowledge and knowledge = Power

  12. Four things became clear to me while learning about the case:

    Her name as we all know is Lam Elisa backwards... A TB test. We also know that two weeks later, there was a TB outbreak in Skid Row.

    So let's apply these facts to my theory:

    1) It can take up to two weeks to do a TB test. It can also take two weeks for antibiotics to beat TB. I think the fact that they found her two weeks later in the water tank is symbolic of this.

    2) They tore a hole in the water tank to get her out. TB is known to cause a hole in the lungs. Another symbolic item in the story.

    3) The elevator - If you google elevator and tb, you get a book called The Elevator Constructor - written in 1918. The saying has always been that you can catch tb easier on an elevator than on a street. This is because tb festers in places with little light. In the 1920s, elevator constructors were given advice on how to lessen the effects of tb. It was a huge issue amongst that field during the 20s.

    I think the elevator scene is symbolic as well. I think whoever made the scene was trying to warn us that a tb epedemic is coming. Elisa Lam in the water tank means there is tb in the water tank. One could argue that tb is spread through the air but I think a new strand was released through Elisa... One that spreads via water.

    Think about it... If you read the news, there are countless number of stories about recent tb outbreaks around the world. scientists are arguing that the old drugs are not working this time and millions are being spent to find a new cure. This can all be found in recent news.

    So I don't think Elisa is real. It's a character warning us to stay away from confined spaces and to tell us tb is back. The WHO recently announced that tb will affect 1 billion people by 2020 if not treated. The news doesn't talk about tb on mainstream news... You have to find the stories but they are there... So no one is prepared. Furthermore, the new strand can transfer from animals to humans and vice versa.

    Also consider her actions on the elevator... She is not trying to close the door... She is trying to keep it open. Visitors of the hotel have claimed that the door is always slow to close. She kept stepping on and off the elevator as well... Perhaps to demonstrate that we should not be on the elevator and should leave it immediately. I think her hand movements were a way of saying "don't get on here".

    You may see this as a crazy thought but when considering the fear of confined spaces in the 20s, it really isn't crazy at all. In addition, she isn't scared... She's happy in the video and seems to be talking to someone. Again, I think she was giving a warning.

    4) If you research the side effects of TB, rectal bleeding is one of them.

    Either she had TB and was trying to warn us of a TB outbreak and then murdered for her attempt or the whole thing is s scam and a way to warn us of the upcoming TB epidemic.

    The WHO has stated that TB has now become a bigger epidemic than AIDS and the mainstream news isn't talking about it.

    This is my two cents. What do you think?

    1. Also consider one more thing.. It is in the Masonic code of conduct to tell us literally everything they plan to do. And they always have... Unfortunately, they don't come right out and say it directly but they leave symbols and clues... I think they released a new strand of TB into society and this was their way of telling us. Research the new TB epidemic if you don't believe me and also how AIDS was created in a laboratory to see how the govt has released diseases in the past.

  20. Hi All, I have to be honest and say this case has had all my attention for some time now. I don't find Elisa's behavior to be anything other than playful in the elevator. Yes, she does use strange hand gestures but to me, she doesn't seem to be afraid. At this point, I'm thinking she did in fact meet someone and this particular person cheated Elisa out of a full life to live. I do believe the Cecil hotel to be haunted for obvious reasons but something about her behavior tells me it was a game of cat and mouse. If in fact Elisa jumped into the water tanks, which I do NOT believe ,how would she have shut the top of the tank.???? I read the tanks lid was shit when she was found, if this is inaccurate,i apologize bit of it is the truth,it doesn't make sense as to how she would have shut it. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
