RIP Elisa Lam… 2013, only 21 years old, far too young to go…
This is such a fresh case! As you all know, I’m used to looking at imprints of such old cases, but because the Cecil itself has become a pet project of mine, this holds special ground for me.
I wanted to first get the externals out of the way, as I ask for information, it comes. Was she followed from home to that hotel? No. Did she have any enemies? Absolutely not, very sweet, very smart, wonderful yet shy girl. Full of talent, and an entire future ahead of her… Did she make enemies with anyone at the hotel during the visit? That comes through as a negative as well. She kept to herself and tried to be smart and safe about her time in LA.
Now looking at her mental/physical and emotional well being… I honestly see that in the past she had suffered from some bouts of depression, mainly caused by some feelings of isolation and loneliness, but I’m not seeing schitzophrenia (I’m sure that’s the first to be looked at for her), or bipolar, nothing like the obvious mental disorders that would cause bazaar behavior, or lead to a sudden suicide. Physically she was in good shape, other than some simple minor issues, problems with her lower back, kidney region… nothing that would cause anything like that. She did suffer from headaches quite a bit, but she always pressured herself, and I really feel like those were stress headaches more than anything. There was an issue in her back left calf, but could have been something as simple as an old running injury… nothing effecting this. Emotionally she was sound, at the time.
Oddly enough, I’m seeing a small amount of confusion leading up to checking into the hotel… some transportation issues, all minor, but all happened in route to this destination. Some may use those as signs, and rethink the visit, but others aren’t that aware of what th Universe will tell them.
Ultimately her visit to LA started to get strange Day 3 of her being there, when the nightmares and night terrors began. by the next day they were seeping into her waking hours……some may say hallucinations, shadow figures, that type of thing… every present, following, watching, listening. It didn’t take more than two days before they were talking to her, communicating with her, saying horrible things… psychologists may try to explain this away as a mental break… or that they are acute symptoms of paranoid schitzophrenia, even though that’s not something that she was ever close to having, no family history, nothing there to suggest it.
In a moment I will analyze the video footage from the elevator from a paranormal psychic phenomena perspective… but first, just know this… what may appear to be a suicide here, was a possession or oppression of some sort. There are many things that bother me about this case. And I will run through those later. There are no signs of trauma on her body, and the autopsy has verified this information. There will not be anything coming back through in the toxicology screen either. This is not something that is normal or even explainable, by rational thought. This girl CLEARLY was running from something only she could see, only she could hear. Do I think whatever this was, was attached to the hotel? Yeah, I do. That’s my experience from being there…feeling what’s there, and knowing that things are not as they seem, much of the time there.
Elisa Lam would be considered literally INSANE by her final day alive. She was driven insane by the very same forces (evil, demonic, or just negative entities, as I choose to classify them all as) that have driven people to do insane things, unexplainable things, require exorcisms, or just plain go crazy, as she did.
Once again, no substances, no trauma. I do not see that she was killed ahead of time, before hitting the water. I do see that she was coerced in. Whether that be by someone “ALIVE” or someone from the other side, the coercer was playing on the same team as what she was running from. NOW… interestingly enough, here is something to consider. I see something stuck NOT IN HER THROAT, but it’s in her windpipe, it’s a piece of paper or something similar that she stuffed in her mouth before going in, or was put there, but I believe while possibly gasping for air, sucked it all the way down. It’s lodged in her windpipe, past her epiglottis, and if unfolded or uncrumpled, appears to have something written on it. If this has pertinent information on the case, then great. I’m not saying it does. Much of her final hours were spent doing off the wall things that will not make sense to many of us anyway. That could be just one of those things.
A couple things that really bother me about this… having been on that rooftop, I can tell you there is no elevator stop off on the roof, no public roof access, there is a door that is basically deadbolted, leading to some very creepy stairs, that lead to another door that has roof access. The second door with roof access is chained and pad locked. We couldn’t even just have the janitor come up to unlock it, we had to have the hotel manager come and unlock it just for the production. THERE IS NO PUBLIC ACCESS TO THIS ROOF. This roof specifically has an insane amount of suicides off the top of it, and in other ways (yep, I said it). They had to lock it away from the general public because of this. How she gained access, I would love to know. Because I truly do not feel management let her up there, and neither did any staff.
Point of interest: There has been MUCH paranormal activity reported behind the front desk, in the side and back, where the keys are kept. Just a thought to throw out there.
NOW……. the OTHER part that really bothers me… there are two hotel elevators in the lobby. The lobby elevators are within eyeshot of the front desk at all times. She was at the lobby level because that’s the only level that has the marble floor, that you can clearly see in the security surveillance video:
It appears to me that she is actually in the left elevator of the two… which is the same elevator the team and I took up to Ramirez’s room. I can tell you at the time, it made some strange noises, and it didn’t feel too steady… lol… it’s an old elevator. I worried about riding in it, of course. But the doors definitely closed for us, and QUICKLY… both elevators, you hit the button and there really isn’t time for someone to slide in. The doors close QUICKLY… but I guess not for her!! The doors never closed for her, and she was extremely aware of it. VERY. I also say this, because i’m almost positive that it will be brought up that maybe someone blocked the elevator in order to force her to take the stairs. Not possible, as it would have been obvious to the front desk staff, and secondly, there was a second elevator right there to take. Ok, now for the analysis…
Right off the bat, within the first couple seconds, she walks in confidently, and then turns, with her finger, bends down to push the button obviously like she has an audience. At this point she is still conscious, but I don’t feel she’s in complete control, and honestly she feels like she’s already gone crazy. She does get awfully close to the numbers on the buttons, but she wasn’t wearing her glasses either. I’m not liking her posture her first time through, pushing the buttons. ALSO, note that in the beginning of the video you can clearly see the doors finish opening… meaning the doors weren’t stuck open because of a service issue. Not in the slightest.
Another odd thing… now I don’t remember and can’t clearly see if there are 2 rows or 3 rows of floor number buttons, but if I remember there are 2. The lobby is at the bottom with the top floors at the top… she goes straight through ALWAYS STARTING AT THE TOP… pushing 4 buttons straight down, and always on that row. Ritualistically, as you will see. ODDLY, people don’t usually start at the top, if they are going to take a tour of the building, they will hit the floors the want to see ON THE WAY UP. She starts at the top, hits four buttons straight down, which would entail that the elevator would stop on EVERY OTHER FLOOR… Some may say OCD and psychotic break, others may even say she was in a panic trying to just get to any floor she could, because of someone following her., but I see ritualistic behavior, and it’s a show, for an audience.
She attempts to hit the “close door” button, backs up, and then doesn’t look surprised when it fails to close, although it looks like it attempts to. Almost as if someone reached out and put their hand on the side of the door to keep it from closing, and buy time to get in.
Her reaction to it is amazing… she knows EXACTLY what she’s looking for, outside that door, and even almost plays a bit of a game with it. These entities have been with her long enough that she already feels crazy and just doesn’t even hide it from herself. It is interesting that she’s dodging out looking outside the elevator, to the right … full lobby side, for something low to the ground.
I also find it interesting at the 27 second mark that she’s still looking lower to the ground with NO expression on her face as she dodges back into the corner of the elevator. She clearly knows they are playing with her. Yet her mood changes when she allows herself to explore outside the elevator twice more, as if they’ve disappeared and she can’t find them. This, in my honest opinion, is paranormal hide and go seek.
1 minute 26 seconds of those doors not closing, with all four of those buttons being pushed. Wow.
It’s been brought to my attention that during this timeframe, her eyes turn black, fully black. Going frame by frame, with absolutely crappy video quality, what I’m seeing is that this can be accounted for with pixelation. Her hands also appear distorted to some, also crappy video quality, appears that portion can be explained away as well. Her gestures when coming back into the elevator show me that she has come fully back in control, and literally feels she is losing her mind.
1 minute 49 seconds… she no longer appears to have feminine behavior and stature, just for a moment… also classic oppression/possession characteristic… it’s fleeting, like usual.
At that point she begins a conversation with them, still looking down, lower than herself, but this time with expression on her face that she has not shown. Her hand gestures are completely unexplainable, she’s communicating with whatever is after her…
She leaves and turns to the direction of the basement entrance… I am very familiar with what is in that basement, and this fact alone raises questions for me.
There is quite a bit of shadow play and non pixelated anomolies that do need further analysis, before posting, but will at a later time.
Here is a link to the 4 minute video, that clearly shows that the elavator doors have no problem open and closing once she leaves, in fact they do it three times after she leaves. Interesting, me thinks! 🙂
