She was staying at Cecil Hotel – a hotel with a huge entrance and a lobby that misrepresented its shady work. It was apparently a safe haven for drug dealers, pimps, and killers. Cecil has had a long known history of crime, as it’s known for being the home of Black Dahlia, Elizabeth Short, and Richard Ramirez (the Night Stalker). Apparently, Richard Ramirez walked the halls of this very residence naked and in blood. The place got its nickname “Hotel Death” soon after.
It is known that Cecil’s scandalous history was the inspiration behind one of the American Horror Story seasons. Amy Price, the manager of the hotel, describes the hotel by dividing it into two halves. Hence, in the interviews, she created a second lobby and entrance and included three floors and eventually named this section as “Stay on Main” – for budget-conscious travelers.
Lam visited the separate hostel in the early days of 2013, after which she went MIA. Soon, her face was on every flyer in the town, but none of it helped. The detectives who worked on the case narrated the stuff that was available on her Tumblr blog – it seemed like she treated it as her dairy.
The series deals with strange and confusing scenarios, as it triggered a new LAPD investigation that led them to solid clues needed to form the puzzle.
However, it wasn’t until the cops discovered the security camera footage of Lam where she could be seen inside an elevator. This video went viral and became the epicenter of a lot of scrutiny and criticism.
The detectives who helped Luka Magnotta in Don’t Fuck with Cats also breakdown what the confounding video showed.
In the video, Lam can be seen entering the elevator, pressing multiple buttons, and then hiding in the corner. She was constantly poking out her face to look whether or not there was anyone else. She looked erratic and scared.
Of course, anybody who watches the four minute clip can understand that her behavior was odd. The fact that the door of the elevator stays open for so long seems a bit mysterious. And that’s not it – the door opens on the same floor for Lam, even though Lam had pressed so many buttons on the control panel. By now, the lift should’ve gone to another floor.
Obviously, no one can explain the content of the video to this day, and that is exactly why it holds so much controversy around it. The Crime Scene series will be the answer to those speculations and will tell us finally what the baffling truth of the tale is.
