Elisa Lam: One of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries
In our articles, so far, we have discussed some very strange and mysterious topics… However, non-that are quite as strange and mysterious as the death of Elisa Lam! If you have never heard of her or indeed heard about her truly heartbreaking story. Then you may be shocked by what you are about to read.
The mysterious death of Elisa Lam. Elisa was a 21-year-old student who was found dead in the water-tanks of the Cecil Hotel Los Angeles in 2013. Her death was ruled as accidental due to drowning. There was no alcohol or drugs found in Elisa’s system and no evidence of foul play!
What makes this such a strange case is the events leading up to her death! CCTV footage in one of the elevators in the Cecil Hotel filmed Elisa acting strange and at times she looked very distressed and even scared! She can be seen on the CCTV footage peering out of the elevator; she appears to be hiding from someone or something! If you haven’t seen the footage before I suggest you go and check it out as I can’t really explain how truly mysterious it is. When Elisa does finally leave the elevator she somehow manages to gain access to the roof where she climbs into the ten-foot high water-tanks and then subsequently dies… Her body was found over two-weeks later after the hotel guests began to complain about the taste and colour of the water!
Many different theories have been put forward in the attempt to explain what really happened to Elisa Lam ranging from; her being murdered to her suffering from a severe mental breakdown and even a supernatural explanation such as she was possessed! Whatever happened to Elisa Lam on this day is still a mystery and although many theories have been put forward no one really knows what did happen on that truly sad and tragic day…
