That's odd. The blood usually gets off at the second floor.

Elvis stayed there and 1976, but he still alive so maybe it's just a coincidence.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to disagree with you on that one pal.

Why should it?  Worth looking into, as they are, but it certianly doesn't mean the vicitms had something in common.  At least not more than having checked into this hotel while this room was available.

Eh that's the movie room. The book room is 217. They changed it because the hotel they used as a facade really had a room 217.

The hotel room IS the link. The link is the hotel room.

Hmmm... the police are being even more tightlipped than usual but assuring the public that nobody else is in danger. But the police aren't releasing details of her injuries or condition. I'm not sure what's going on.

The staff at Timberline got annoyed when I tried to get my picture taken in front of the door. Apparently I was not the first.

Different article: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/06/10/2952780/report-carbon-monoxide - found-at.html

"Boone police on Monday said elevated carbon monoxide levels were detected in a hotel room where an 11-year-old boy died over the weekend, two months after the poisonous gas killed an elderly couple in the same room."

"North Carolina is among 27 states that require carbon monoxide alarms in new homes but not in hotels...." Apparently, even when people have been dying from carbon monoxide in your hotel.

Pretty sure the detectors would have been cheaper than the lawsuits.

Even beyond that though, Carbon monoxide has no business being inside a building.  Somebody is doing something very wrong.

Nah, that was nothing to someone of his caliber. He had survived his stay at Heartbreak Hotel, despite being so lonely he could've died.

And maybe time to stop putting gas heaters in poorly ventilated rooms. You'd think there was a building code regulation or something for that.

Hell I've never even been to Oregon. Why, is that story not true? I wasn't exactly on the movie set but that's an old story and it makes sense. Why else would Kubrick bother changing the number?

Actually from the second article, it sounds like the gas was from the hotel's swimming pool heater in the room below the room where people died.

I assume this is very uncommon, and if you consider the actuarial odds of people dying from monoxide in hotel rooms that have no intrinsic source of a flame (gas heaters, gas stoves, fireplaces, etc.), it may actually be reasonable not to require CO detectors in all hotel rooms. By the same token, even if this is a fluke, it might be worth updating building codes to require them in hotel rooms within a certain proximity of such monoxide sources, or something like that. The article quoted stats from the "Carbon Monoxide Safety Association," which sounds like a group with a profit motive to lobby states to consider the issue.
