LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Police say the body of a woman found wedged in a water tank on the roof of a Los Angeles hotel is that of a missing Canadian guest.
Investigators used body markings to identify 21-year-old Elisa Lam, police spokeswoman Officer Diana Figueroa said late Tuesday. A maintenance worker at the Cecil Hotel found the body earlier in the day after guests complained of low water pressure.
Lam, of Vancouver, British Columbia, travelled to California alone on Jan. 27 and was last seen by workers at the hotel on Jan. 31.
Investigators were trying to determine whether there was foul play in the woman’s death or “a very, very strange accident” occurred, police spokeswoman Officer Sara Faden said.
