Concierge, I'd like to complain. This water tastes like dead Asian lady.

Umm, yeah... I think they need to look into replacing the cistern, if possible. Or they could line it with something.

I expect in a few years this hotel will be known for having a ghost on tap.

Taste like cream of sum yung dead asian chick.

Can't imagine what she was trying to do in the tank. That kind of thing is really dangerous. As she found out, apparently.
 
2013-02-22 10:18:52 AM  

Elisa Lam, 21, of Vancouver was found dead in the tank by a maintenance worker on Tuesday, after guests complained of low water pressure.


Well, tanks a lot.

Why did you make those jokes about a Canadian?

Okay, who ordered the Lam, well-done?

Investigators are seeking the cause of death of a Canadian woman found dead in a Los Angeles hotel cistern.


I wonder if she believed in Jebus.

"Cistern Christian, oh the time has come..."

Guests at the Cecil hotel have probably put much, much worse things in their mouths.
 
2013-02-22 10:22:44 AM  
Here's a link to a surveillance camera's footage that shows Ms. Lam's last known location (well, prior to corpse-watering up the place).

It looks as though she is either mentally ill / outta her mind on drugs, or playing drunken hide-and-seek with a companion who's holding down the door-open button.
 
2013-02-22 10:25:10 AM  
The worst thing is that after a shower at that hotel you need another one an hour later.
I know, low hanging fruit.
 
2013-02-22 10:27:36 AM  
The Cecil used to be one of the best peeler bars in Vancouver.
I cried like a baby the day they closed it down.

What happened to you, Vancouver? You used to be cool.

That's some weird video. Drugs or mental illness?

And that water would not be safe. At all. No way.

What about the two dead pigeons in the water tank?

That's quite a bit more than the little bit of that video CNN had the other day. Can't even begin to imagine what the hell she was up to there. Or how or why she managed to get to the roof and inside of a water tank.
 
2013-02-22 10:37:06 AM  
If it's any consolation, they'll no longer be known as the Nightstalker Hotel.
 
2013-02-22 10:37:14 AM  
I guess she checked out, but could never leave
 
2013-02-22 10:37:17 AM  
The water out at my mom's home in rural Oklahoma tasted funny for a while. Later they found a dead Preacher in the water supply.

he behavior in the video is very bizarre.  what's she doing with her hands there?  Jazz hands?
 
2013-02-22 10:48:25 AM  
She was a sinker not a floater.

A floater wouldn't have clogged the intake up.
 
2013-02-22 10:49:52 AM  
I bet she thought the cistren was a giant Coke can and she fell in while attempting to urinate in it.

We went to a resort hotel a few years ago, and on our second day there, I went down to the indoor pool/spa to find a sign, "SORRY, POOL AND SPA CLOSED FOR 10 DAYS FOR REMODELING."  I was livid...you guys let me make a reservation at an expensive resort hotel, and you couldn't bother to tell me that the pool and spa would be closed almost the entire time I was scheduled to be here?  And it was the usual, "I can offer you $100 off your stay for the week, but there is nothing more I can do," and that last part was delivered in a very firm, almost angry tone, like, "Take it or leave it, I really don't care, I'm so sick of whining customers."  So--won't be going back there.  (St. Julien Hotel in Boulder.)

But I had no reason to believe that anybody actually died in the pool.

Her actions are consistent with someone under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug. That's not the only possibility, but it certainly is one.

Oh, great. Now everyone will want Asian woman in their water.

You just have to boil it.

In other considerations, Corpse Water would be an awesome heavy metal band name.

She is Asian but now we need more info on her ancestry - is she Vietnamese or Chinese?  Could make some pho or egg drop soup.

Wasn't this a CSI episode or a Bones episode or a Law&Order episode? I swear I've seen this one.

FTA: "Officials said an autopsy on Thursday did not provide a definite cause of death..."

Lack of oxygen to the brain. That's pretty much the cause of death for every person who's ever died.

After discovering the corpse, I assume you boiled the hell out of that water.

She almost looks like she's trying to pet an animal.

Didn't witness this, but heard it from my wife and kid:  They were at the gym for the kid's swimming lessons, and one of the younger students took a crap in the pool.  The staff immediately got everyone out and sent in a Roomba-like vacuum robot to retrieve the turd.  We truly live in an age of wonder, my friends.
