LOS ANGELES - The body of 21-year-old Elisa Lam, the Canadian undergraduate who had gone missing during a stay at the allegedly haunted Cecil Hotel on Jan 31, has been found in one of the hotel's four water tanks.
According to the Los Angeles Times, police confirmed her identity through body markings on Feb 19 after she was found by a maintenance worker investigating complaints about low water pressure.
A CCTV camera footage showing the young woman acting strangely in the hotel elevator the night before she went missing is circulating on the Internet. In the video, Lam could be seen pressing buttons for multiple floors in the lift before stepping outside suddenly. She then looks quickly to her left and right before moving her arms around wildly.
Hotel Cecil is known for having been home to serial killers like Richard Ramirez, alias the 'Night Stalker', who was convicted of killing 14 people, as well as Jack Unterweger who committed suicide after being convicted for several murders involving prostitutes.
