Los Angeles (CNN) — Tourists staying at a Los Angeles hotel bathed, brushed teeth and drank 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.
Pour over the rest of the story:
I like the comment by one British tourist who stayed at the hotel for 8 days: “The water did have a funny taste.” She also reported that when she’d turn on the shower, the water would come out black at first.
But she continued to drink the water!!!
