The Case Of Elisa Lam Is Examined In Trailer For Netflix Docuseries

Netflix released its trailer for Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel, which will look at the 2013 case of Elisa Lam. Lam disappeared from the Cecil Hotel (now the Stay on Main) after being last seen acting odd on security footage. Her body was discovered in the water tank on the roof of the hotel weeks later with no one understanding how or why.

The aforementioned security footage of Lam went CRAZY viral at the time. It’s one of the most bizarre and baffling parts of the case. The only reason her body was discovered was after guests complained to staff about the water coming out black and tasting funny.

The series is directed by Joe Berlinger, who will interview hotel staff and guests will be featured along with some detectives who worked on Lam’s case in order gain insight on what happened. The official cause of death, according to the LAPD, was an accident, but was it?

Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel will be released on Feb. 10 on Netflix.
