Hopefully they get to the bottom of the murder of the 21 yr old Canadian girl very soon.
Bonus from NBC:
Take a deteriorating building, a skid row neighborhood, proximity to a clinic for sex offenders, and serial killers as long-term guests, and you come
close to describing the magic of the Cecil Hotel in the 1980s. The hotel is now a boutique establishment that plays on its access to the nearby
Staples Center, but in its glory years it hosted a ghoulish assortment of losers and killers, including "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez and Austrian
journalist-cum-murderer Jack Unterweger. Ramirez, who was found guilty of 14 murders in the 1980s, stayed on the 14th floor for several months in
1985, paying (creepy coincidence alert) $14 a night.
And Unterweger, a writer and prostitute-killer released by Austrian authorities for good behavior and then sent to America on a high-profile
journalistic junket, also used the hotel as a base to pick up at least three prostitutes who were later found murdered. The two may have been feeling
the vibes from Pauline Otten, who jumped out a window in 1962 and killed a pedestrian, as well as herself, in her fall; or from the still unsolved
murder of Goldie Osgood, the "pigeon lady" of Pershing Square, who was found strangled in her Cecil room in 1964. But you have to give the new
management some respect: At least they haven't named a drink after Ramirez or done up Unterweger's room in period decor.

PS: asked a friend of mine who is a fireman,if the doors can be remotely opened, he told me its possible,if the elevator is equiped with a camera,
there is 85% of chance of the elevator being equiped with a remote access mechanism, usable in case of emergency
