Recently a lot of theories around Elisa Lam have been circulating due to the movie “Dark water.” Dark water was originally a Japanese film from 2002 however was adapted into an American version in 2005. *spoiler alert* it’s discovered in the film that the dark water people are seeing in their faucet is because of the body of a little girl in the water tanks for the building. Much like Elisa Lam’s case. The little girl was named Cecilia, a little too close to Cecil for comfort. They say life imitates art after all.
The most recent activity surrounding death at the hotel involved at 28-year old man who fell to his death in 2015. His death is believed to have been a suicide by investigators though the official cause of death was not determined.
