Other than this issue, I would just like to know the other pertinent facts of the case that the investigators are withholding, such as: Did she or did
she not have clothes on her body when she was found? Is there any record whatsoever of someone seeing her with anyone else at all and what on earth
did her phone records indicate? Did she or her parents have any traceable knowledge of the Cecil Hotel and the area of skid row prior to her stay, or
did she perhaps look for the first hotel she could find to get off the street after she got off a bus in skid row? Really, truly, what was the deal
with the freaking elevator? Did it normally operate in such erratic fashion or not? All efforts made so far by anyone who knows or could know answers
to any of these glaring questions have proven to be unsuccessful.
These are definitely questions I have as well, compounded by the possibility of tampered security footage (recorded in the most prehistoric
resolution, I might add).
Most hotels do not simply have a camera inside the elevator, and nowhere else. Where is the lobby footage? The hallway footage? I guess a great
starting point would be to go to the Hotel Cecil itself and check out how many cameras are actually operating.
Context is another thing missing from this case. What exactly was Elisa doing in that part of town? Where are her friends/relatives? Was she in
contact with anyone while in that area? Did she notify any of her friends that she was heading off? Was she an actual customer of the hotel i.e.
staying the night there? If so, surely the police would have investigated her room and looked for any clues as to her intentions.
In regards to the erratic behaviour of the elevator, it almost seems like the elevator itself was jammed or prevented from closing and changing floors
remotely (either by the lobby, or some sort of emergency stop was applied to it). Seeing as we don't have footage from the outside of the elevator
in the hall, we also cannot rule out the possibility of a suspect standing outside the elevator pressing a button to stop it from moving. There are
certain scenes in the video where Elisa does seem to be pleading or reasoning with someone outside the elevator - an angle we cannot see.
The more time passes, the more I feel these questions are getting further away from being answered.
