Tourists staying at a Los Angeles hotel bathed, brushed teeth and drank water from a tank in which a young woman's body was likely decomposing for more than two weeks, police said.

Elisa Lam's corpse was found in the Cecil Hotel's rooftop water tank by a maintenance worker who was trying to figure out why the water pressure was low Tuesday.

Lam's parents reported her missing in early February. The last sighting of her was in the hotel on January 31, Los Angeles Police said.

Detectives are now investigating the 21-year-old Canadian's suspicious death, police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.


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

"We never thought anything of it," the British woman said. "We thought it was just the way it was here."
What she described was not normal.

"The shower was awful," she said. "When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal."

Oh God, that is awful. I don't think I could ever feel clean again if I drank and bathed in water with a rotting corpse floating in it.

In regards to this thread, they are fantastic.

As for decomp, the only story I have regarding this was when I worked in a hospital I was called down to the ED to take a corpse from there to the Morgue. Now, I hated doing this because the ED is a busy place and can be really weird trying to be covert with the cart like the hospital wanted me to be (morgue carts generate weird feelings in by people). Anyways, so I get down there and am informed that deceased had been found in a hot tub and had been there quite awhile post-mortem. Needless to say, when pulling the body bag across from the bed on the cart it had the weirdest feeling I ever felt when dealing with the deceased. Can't really describe it.

Another good morgue cart story was the bones run. Never understood why they had to be put on ice...

Meet Rasoul Speight.

The Bloods gang member is facing a narcotics charge after New Jersey cops yesterday discovered a whopping 100 bags of heroin hidden in his anus, police report.

Speight, 32, was driving on the Palisades Interstate Parkway when his 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer was pulled over during a routine traffic stop. When cops detected the smell of marijuana they asked for--and received--permission to search the car.


While Speight, seen above, was being processed at police headquarters, he “was found to be in possession of 100 bags of heroin which were concealed in his anus and undetectable at the scene.” Police estimated the heroin’s vale at $1000 in New York City, and $2000 in upstate New York, “where both subjects were traveling to.”

Speight, who cops noted is “also listed as a Bloods gang member,” was jailed in lieu of $38,500 bail on a pair of felony drug counts.

Full cavity search or a whole handful of laxatives to retrieve that find?

A huge sinkhole about 30-feet across opened up under a man's bedroom and swallowed him, taking all of the furniture too.

It's all part of Sweden's diabolical plan to take over the world. Their first step was to injure us with their poorly made furniture. Now they are on to poisoning us with their poorly made food.

Well, I am not surprised by that. Swedes are so inventive, aren't they? They are my favorite producers.... :)

heh, finally saw this story get Tweeted by KYW news here in Philly. Central PA loves bath salts.

http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/03/11/naked-man-arrested-after-chasing-car-in-central-pa/

Police say a man was high on the synthetic stimulant known as bath salts when he was naked and chased a car down the street in central Pennsylvania.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 35-year-old Douglas Leary III, of Altoona, who was arrested after a woman in the car called 911 to report the man’s behavior early Saturday morning.

This one's from my 'hood. I was actually walking into the library a block away when I saw police swarming the store.

The homeless man accused of going on a stabbing spree in the East Liberty Target store has a criminal history that stretches across the nation and includes convictions on charges that he bit a man on the head and aided in a robbery that led to a woman's death.

Bad Ass

A man bitten by a poisonous coral snake killed the reptile by biting off its head, then used its skin as a tourniquet _ a move that probably saved his life.
