It wasn't later that day..it was about a month later when guests complained about an odd "color and taste" to the water.

The cistern where her body was found is about 8 feet off the ground and has no way to be accessed unless you bring a ladder, so there is an assumption she might have been murdered and put there, but the investigation basically just stopped with "oh it was probably accident" even though there is literally no explanation as to how she died or got there. So..it's still pretty mysterious in a ton of ways.

A combination of mental illness & gross negligence on the part of the hotel. I wouldn't be surprised if someone with interest in the hotel was found to be the one who started all the paranormal/conspiracy bullshit.

There’s a theory that she was playing an Asian Bloody Mary type summoning game called “Hellavator”, psyched herself up legend tripping in a skid row hotel, and due to mental instability, believed she was swarmed with ghosts. She might have accidentally dosed in some way, since drugs are omnipresent in the Cecil Hotel given that it is a literal bum hotel (Richard Ramirez stayed there).

@Binro, the hotel has a long history of murders going back to the Hollywood golden age and has plenty of "ghosts," although if you were looking to modernize, ripping off Dark Water couldn't hurt.

I know about the hotel's sordid past, but this is a tragic case of a woman with mental problems and an establishment with a faulty elevator & lax security.

Had the elevator gone down when it should have or had the door to the roof been secured, she might likely be alive today. Or, it could be that she was intent on doing herself harm.

Even if the hatch to the cistern had been locked as it should have been, maybe she would have jumped from the roof. If the roof access had been locked, maybe she might have tried another method. If the elevator had gone down when it was supposed to, maybe she would have gone out & thrown herself in front of a car.

We can't know for sure. All we know is what she was doing made perfect sense to her at the time. Maybe stripping off her clothes & drowning herself was, to her, the next logical step after being able to get in the cistern. Maybe if she couldn't have gotten in there, her next logical step would have been buying a bagel.

The hotel fucked up.

The water tank on the hotel roof isn't that hard to access; you can climb a ladder to the top of an adjacent maintenance structure and drop down onto the water tanks. It's entirely within the possible actions of someone having a mental breakdown and desperately seeking a place to hide.

"The cistern where her body was found is about 8 feet off the ground and has no way to be accessed unless you bring a ladder, so there is an assumption she might have been murdered and put there"

If it's hard enough for one person to access on their own, you think a more logical explanation is someone accessing it while carrying a dead body?

This place is down the block from me and they had to entirely re-brand due to the incident. It's a little weird, sure, but weirder things than this happen all the time. Most people just have never encountered an unmedicated schizo alone in an old elevator.
Perhaps I should move out of California.

Remember, the odds of you encountering an unmedicated schizo in another state aren’t necessarily lower but the odds of them having an AR 15 with a high capacity magazine is higher.

Having had experience with this thanks to past relationships, pretty much everything in this video is classic hypomanic behavior.
