Beware the power of the FILTHY JEW




Some sick poo poo, but fascinating at this stage because of all the missing details in this case.

In short, Chinese-Canadian woman on a trip to LA goes missing, turns up dead and decomposing in a vat of water used for drinking and I assume showering for other hotel guests.

quote:

"The water did have a funny taste," Sabrina Baugh told CNN on Wednesday. She and her husband used the water for eight days."

This hotel is the home of a number of murderers and grisly incidents in the past already. This girl went missing, but there is some surveillance video (a short clip is included in the video portion of the story) of her freaking out on the elevator as though someone is coming after her.

Is she hallucinating? Is someone actually chasing her? Is she on drugs? Is the hotel haunted and was she murdered by some apparitions?

Outlandish hypotheticals welcome.

She does look pretty strange. I don't really understand what her hand movements are all about. It's probably something to do with drugs, though.

Yes I believe it is roughly the plot to that. She appears to have maybe been a bit OCD as each time she got in the elevator she touched all those buttons. What I want to know is why didn't the door close while she was in the hall?

\/Can't it be both? Maybe her spirits power is to have gangrene.

Longer version of the elevator video. Some comments saying it was edited, possibly by hotel staff stalking her and that's why the elevator wouldn't close.

I'm always shocked how easy it is to access drinking water. I did an internship with EPCOR in a major Canadian city and more then half of the treated/drinkable reservoir cisterns were not locked or relatively well hidden.

That's really gross. The videos look like she is tweaking out on drugs, but how the hell does she end up in the water tank? That seems like it would be a pretty decent hiding spot though, but what a jerk to whoever put her there.

Maybe I'm missing something ~spoooooky~ but it seems in the elevator extended video that she just hits a bunch of buttons (on a presumably faulty elevator) and gets impatient about waiting for it. Eventually the lovely elevator door closes (super slow) and does its lovely thing. Am I not seeing something unexplained or scary here? Beyond a girl who is too impatient to wait for a clearly hosed up elevator? Or take the stairs?

^Edit: Yeah, she must either be tweaked out or there must be foul play. Seems a bit of a jump from "What the gently caress is going on with this lovely building's lovely elevator, haha", to *DEAD IN A WATER TANK, HA HA HA*

You know, at first I thought this girl was just high on LSD or somethin, but this explanation actually makes sense.

SINGAPORE - A female corpse abandoned in a rooftop tank of a Woodlands HDB block may have tainted the drinking water of 700 residents.

The dead body of an Indonesian maid was discovered on Monday morning at approximately 10am on the rooftop of Block 686B, Woodlands Street 73.

A local news source said blood stains were found in the 2m-deep water tank.

Chinese newspaper Lianhe Wanbao reported that the deceased was a 30-year-old Indonesian female working in Singapore as a maid.

Her identity is unknown. She was wearing a t-shirt and bermudas when her body was found in the tank.

168 households may have had their drinking water supply affected by the corpse, according to the Chinese newspaper.

The case has been classified as murder by the police. The Straits Times reported that a 27-year-old Bangladeshi man had been arrested in connection with the case.

The victim and the Bangladeshi man were believed to have been in an intimate relationship. He was seen limping and had cuts on his legs when he was led away by the police at 10.40am.

The cause of her death has not been determined.


Morning quarrel

Lianhe Wanbao also reported that residents witnessed a man and woman arguing with each other on Monday morning.

The man looked like a foreigner and was choking the woman.

Residents also said that there were blood stains inside one of the lifts and at the lift landing, according to the Chinese newspaper.

The person who called the police is believed to have been a colleague of the Bangladeshi suspect.

The suspect was hired by Sergent Service Pte Ltd, and may have had access to the roof as part of his job as a maintenance worker.


White bubbles in water, supply cut off

It is understood that some residents may have used the water in their daily activities like washing and cooking.

The water supply was cut off at 11 am. The residents were first told by the town council that there were maintenance works going on.

News of a body being found in one of the eight water tanks on the roof of the 15-storey block then spread later.

A 43-year-old home-maker, Mrs Goh, said that she saw white bubbles when bathing her children. Her son could be affected by the water as he had sensitive skin, she said.

The PUB said in a statement on Monday night that it received a report of the incident at 3.30pm. It immediately stopped the water supply and provided other sources of water for residents.

PUB officers were also on hand to hand out water bags.

A PUB spokesperson said the town council is currently flushing and washing the tanks and distribution pipes. Water supply is expected to be restored by Tuesday.


Boiled water still safe for consumption

A doctor interviewed by Lianhe Wanbao said that any unboiled water drank by residents could result in stomach discomfort.

Symptoms mirrored those of food poisoning, the Chinese newspaper reported the doctor as saying. However, boiling water before consumption would be sufficient to kill germs inside.

Another doctor said that the water tank's size would dictate how much bacteria were present in the water.

Goddamn, not to ignore the dead, but this is like the guy choking to death on those beetles during an eating contest, making me sick to my stomach imagining.

That footage of her in the elevator is some creepy poo poo. Either she's trippin balls or near someone looking to harm her. Either way I wonder how a Chinese Canadian winds up near Skid Row of all places, especailly since she was "missing" since january. Wonder if there wasn't some weird meeting-sketchy-man-of-her-dreams-online deal If you are visiting LA, next to South Central it's probably the last place you book to "see" the city unless you are a rough traveling type.

If this is the case (which sounds plausible) then it seems likely that whoever killed her was the other party, not entering the elevator because he wanted to avoid the cameras and pressing the outside button to keep her from elevatoring away.

Supposedly there's an extended video that shows a timestamp, with time frozen, which means the perpetrator would have access to the surveillance equipment.

I am totally confused by the footage. My first thought was that she is high as a kite and skipping around in some magic happy land, but the explanation about there being someone outside is very interesting. Regarding the timestamp, isn't it possible the police edited out the useless bits and only released parts that they thought could be helpful?

In China now. One of my students was freaking the gently caress out about this this morning. The girls were all watching the video and shrieking before class. They also said that no drugs were found in her system. Is that part accurate?

Now whenever I get into an elevator that I know has cameras I'm gonna act exactly like this so if I accidentally die afterwards people will assume foul play. Gotcha loved ones! Worry your hearts out!

I know she probably didn't accidentally die unless she was tripping balls and decided swimming in a water tank was a rad idea. I've made worse.

I remember a goon who was moving to Los Angeles, asking whether it was a good idea to get a place in central LA so he could be close to everything. He got promptly laughed at. What I'm saying, if someone doesn't know the sprawl that is Los Angeles, they can easily make the horrible decision of staying somewhere downtown.

There's definitely a second person outside the elevator door though. Look at the left side of the elevator door at 2:25: there's a finger blocking the door, and it's removed the second she walks out of camera sight.

The way I like to describe LA to people who know nothing about it is: "it's a bunch of different cities all bunched together." People don't really seem to understand how huge of a place it is. The public transport's getting better, but it's still nothing compared to major European cities (or even NYC or DC). I'm constantly amazed by the people who tell me they're just flying into LAX, planning to walk/taxi to "downtown" (they actually mean Hollywood"), and then ask me how close the beach is to "downtown". And then they tell me that they can't drive. But I certainly don't think that's a reason to be possibly murdered and shoved into a water tower...

Um, what exactly is the consequence (health-wise) of drinking body soup? I've never... considered this before.
