    Body found in water tank of Los Angeles hotel

    http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013...g-tourist?lite
    The body of a woman recovered Tuesday from a water tank on the roof of a downtown Los Angeles hotel is that of 21-year-old Elisa Lam, a Canadian tourist who stayed at the hotel before she disappeared several weeks ago, police officials said late Tuesday.
    At about 10:15 a.m., police were called to the Cecil Hotel. The Los Angeles Fire Department also responded. The body was removed at about 4:30 p.m. after an urban search and rescue team worked to free the remains while trying to maintain evidence, authorities on scene said.
    Hotel guests had reported that the water pressure in the building was low, prompting a maintenance worker to visit tanks on the roof, where the body was found, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Sara Fayden.
    The single-room-occupancy hotel has an unusual history. "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez, who was found guilty of 14 slayings in the 1980s, lived on the 14th floor for several months in 1985. And international serial killer Jack Unterweger is suspected of murdering three prostitutes during the time he lived there in 1991. He killed himself in jail in 1994.
    In 1962, a female occupant jumped out of one the hotel's windows, killing herself and a pedestrian on whom she landed.

    That's a sketchy area pretty close to one of the worst skid rows in the country. Hard to believe any parent would allow their daughter to stay anywhere near that vicinity.

    Shes 21, so her parents probably had no idea. If I went on a trip to a different state, Im pretty sure my parents would just assume I had the common sense to not stay in a area or hotel thats THAT sketchy.

    I'm convinced that LA is one of the two centers of evil in America, the other one being the Fourth Reich (Walt Disney World) in Orlando.

    UGH

    It gets even worse:
    Los Angeles (CNN) -- Tourists staying at a Los Angeles hotel bathed, brushed teeth and drank with water from a tank in which a young woman's body was likely decomposing for more than two weeks, police said.Elisa Lam's corpse was found in the Cecil Hotel's rooftop water tank by a maintenance worker who was trying to figure out why the water pressure was low Tuesday.

    Lam's parents reported her missing in early February. The last sighting of her was in the hotel on January 31, Los Angeles Police said.
    Detectives are now investigating the 21-year-old Canadian's suspicious death, police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.

    It was not clear whether the water presented any health risks. Results on tests on the water done Wednesday by the Los Angeles Public Health Department were expected later in the day.

    The hotel management has not responded to CNN requests for comment.

    People who stayed at the Cecil since Lam's disappearance expressed shock about developments.
    "The water did have a funny taste," Sabrina Baugh told CNN on Wednesday. She and her husband used the water for eight days.
    "We never thought anything of it," the British woman said. "We thought it was just the way it was here."
    What she described was not normal.
    "The shower was awful," she said. "When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal."

    The hotel remained open after the discovery, but guests checking in Tuesday were told not to drink it, according to Qui Nguyen, who decided to find a new hotel Wednesday.

    Nguyen said he learned about the body from a CNN reporter, not the hotel staff.

    Ask the Mayans how that whole dumping bodies into there water system worked out for them lol. Of course it poses a health risk, it's a rotting dead body.

    Man I don't know if I'd write a book about this, it might really "tank".
