Elisa Lam is a Canadian woman who went missing in late July: Her body was found by a maintenance worker, on the roof of a historic Los Angeles hotel. The 21 year old was discovered Tuesday morning in a water tank. The Canadian student was last seen on January 31st and police were investigating her disappearance as suspicious. British tourist and hotel guest Sabina Baugh said the water there has a funny taste. The water from the tank provided hotel guests with the water they would have drunk from the tap and brushed their teeth with: "The water for the first two or three seconds was coming black, so it wasn't proper clear water, so we would let it run for a while and I thought, it's just pollution. It's our first time in America. And then after a while we would drink it, but it had a strange funny sweet taste. It's disgusting," Authorities removed the body as police prepare to investigate the death of the young woman, at this stage it is too early for the police to declare that foul play was involved in the death of Elisa Lam.
