Cecil Hotel

THE KILLERS THAT HAUNT THE HALL’S  OF THE CECIL HOTEL

”Hotel with a corpse in water tank has notorious past, ” was the headline for CNN following the disappearance of Elizabeth Lam. Another read ” Since its construction in 1927, it’s been the focus of suicides, murders, mysterious disappearances, and serial killers,” an Australian news site said of the hotel. “Home to murderers, maniacs, and ghosts, some say the Cecil is anything but your average hotel, they say it’s cursed,” reported one blog. Another simply called it “Serial Killer Central.” Richard Ramirez aka. The Nightstalker is perhaps one of the most famous serial killers in American history. He was the leader amongst the monsters. He rampaged from 1984 until 1984 when he was captured and convicted of 13 counts of murder, 5 counts of attempted murder, 11 sexual assaults, and 14 burglaries. He managed to elude capture by simply dumping his bloody clothes in the dumpster behind the Cecil Hotel and walking through the lobby up to his room. There were much worse things in the dumpster than bloody clothes, and a naked man walking through the lobby was a normal affair amongst the exclusive clientele at the Cecil. Ramirez was first and foremost a satanist and believed he was doing the Devil’s work. It began for him when he slept on his father’s grave in the Concordia Cemetary, when he found numerous objects, such as a jar containing a pickled mouse and a human finger. He quickly learned what these satanic objects were and took a keen interest. Ramirez died after 23 years on death row at 53 of Lymphoma. Downtown LA was a prominent area until the 1970’s when the business crowd moved towards the airport and crack was introduced. The area became so dark and dangerous that no one who had their sanity would enter. “By 1990, the LAPD won’t go into [these places]. It was like, ‘If we’re called we’ll go in. But we’re not patrolling.’” says Richard Schave. Drug dealers worked openly inside. The bodies of overdosed residents could linger in the hall for days. “No one wanted to be the person who called the cops,” Schave says. There were many killers that followed Ramirez, inspired by him. One was an Australian journalist called Jack Unterweger who also stayed in the Cecil Hotel. He had a fetish for strangling prostitutes with their own bras, he was convicted of the murder of 11 women and eventually killed himself with his own signature knot. Serial killer links were not the only abnormalities occurring in this cesspit. There were countless rapes, murders and suicides. One man jumped and landed on a pedestrian, killing him too. There are even rumours that the Black Dahlia stayed here. All of this, in short, gives credibility to the strange things that link the past of the Cecil Hotel with the recent murder of Eliza Lam. THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELIZA LAM AT THE CECIL HOTEL On February 1, 2013, Elisa Lam disappeared while staying at the Cecil Hotel. In an attempt to locate her the Police Department of Los Angeles released the footage above to try and locate her, but it was far from normal. In the video, you can see Elisa entering the elevator and frantically pressing all the buttons, as if she was trying to escape from something. She peeks out and leaves the elevator a few times. then began to rock back and forth looking deeply disturbed. Then it would appear that someone or something found her… She rocks back and forth again and begins to make frantic hand gestures as if begging or trying to reason. Then she disappears. Two weeks had passed. The Cecil Hotel filed a complaint about low water pressure in the rooms and brown water coming from the tap. So an Employee called Santiago THE NOT SO WONDERLAND MURDERS If only walls could talk, they’d tell the truth about what went down during the early morning hours of July 1, 1981 at the modest house located at 8763 Wonderland Avenue. It was a very seedy place inhabited by a seedy bunch of people certainly doing a lot of seedy stuff – illegal drugs, burglaries, robberies, pornography and who knows what else. While some of those involved have chosen to take the truth with them to the grave, enough about that night has gotten out to put together a fairly good picture of what actually happened. We’re not here to judge, but from the evidence gathered, no one should be surprised at what happened to those involved. Not saying they deserved to die, but… A GRUESOME DISCOVERY wonderland murder house ” I checked into the hotel after watching American horror story and kinda liking it. I’ve always been a bit of a lone wolf and thought it would be cool. The staff were friendly enough but there was something just not right. The vintage furniture really creeped me out. As I was walking up the stairs through the lobby a cold blast of air hit me in the face and sent shivers up my body, just a breeze I thought. All the way up to my room I felt uncomfortable and unwelcome. Just uneasy. The room itself was nice enough, pretty basic. It wasn’t until I turned the lights off that it really began.” “I closed my eyes, to be honest quite disappointed until that cold blast of air hit me again. Then I saw a man standing at the end of my bed, he was smiling and throwing a knife up and down in his hand looking right at me.. I fucking ran, that was it for me. I don’t even really remember how I got out of the building but I left all my things and got a cab home in my pj’s.” “It wasn’t until I got home and did my research until I saw a picture of Richard Ramirez. It was him, I couldn’t believe it!!! I called up the hotel and turns out I was not the first. I highly recommend this hotel to any enthusiasts or anyone who does not believe it was an experience I will never forget.”
