Didn't see this posted anywhere. Terrible situation for everyone involved. Girl was in there 2 weeks and no one noticed .
Tourists at a Los Angeles hotel bathed and drank with water from a tank in which a woman's body likely was decomposing for two weeks.
Ehhhhhhwwwwwwww I can't wait for the law suits. Also the black water... god damn that's gross

Lulz 'Merica of peace. Where you can sue people over anything and everything.
Just one of a dozen reasons the Country is going down the chitter
That hotels profit margin will take a dive. It's going to be hard for them to stay above water.

Yeah, because bathing in corpsejuice is an acceptable practice abroad. Shame on us.
Hard to imagine the hotel being held liable. Also, the hotel is a total dump to begin with

People sue over anything now days.
A murder disposing of a body on to a private property makes that property liable to be sued.
Please tell me when was the waste time you checked you water tank. Barely every 3-6 months for me at my old house to put salt into it.
Bet you wouldn't be this dismissive about it if it had been you or your children that had bathed and drank this water.
I would get the outer layer of my skin, tongue, teeth, etc., zapped off like MacGyver did once after possible exposure to something foul.

How did they not notice something was wrong? It had to smell bad and the taste........
That is pretty disturbing. I think when you stay at places like that you take on added risk.
nothing like a glass of Asian-Canadian before bed to take away the hunger pangs.
Scores of ppl in Cali that have stayed at that place and drank the water in the last few weeks turning into zombies starting in 3...2..
This is an example of why I have not drank water from a faucet in a hotel in about 15 years. All hotel water smells funky to begin with. I would imagine the corpse didn't improve the smell any
She must have been really thirsty.
They said the maintenance guy found it trying to see why water pressure was low.
How the hell does someone sue over that? Did the hotel have a reasonable expectation to think a body was in their cistern? HFNo.
In a related story, the weekly and daily rates for the Cecil Hotel just plummeted. Sweet deal if you don't mind black water.
How can you say the hotel is liable? They had a maintenance guy checking things out and found the body. If they had it on a daily checklist to "check cistern for bodies" then maybe they are liable. Otherwise, sometimes just terrible things happen and it is unfortunate.
Yes, I would feel that way if I personally consummed that. Sickening, yes, but, how the hell could a hotel expect the reason to be a body ?
Lmao. Next up, let's sue walmart because someone took a dump in a toilet.
They're in the business of serving people. They should check their water supply more often.
There are lots of lawyers on here and they can say for sure, but I believe they are liable the same way you would be if someone who robbed a bank ran thru your yard to escape and tripped in a hole and got hurt , they could sue you. Although being a hotel and having a body rotting in your water tank for a week is much worse
Wow.. This country 's even more defenseless than i thought..

Another tidbit from this story from an article I read::: Chris Nichols, associate editor at Los Angeles Magazine, told KPCC about the hotel's "long, dark history."
"There were murders there in the '20s and '30s," he said, "and a woman jumped out a window in the '60s."
"Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez, now on California's death row, was a frequent resident in the 1980s, Nichols said. Back then, KPCC writes, "room rates were as cheap as $14. It's reported that he stayed in a room on the 14th floor while killing 14 people [he was convicted of 13 murders]."
Austrian murderer Jack Unterweger, KPCC adds, also stayed there in the '80s. "He picked up some prostitutes nearby and they ended up dead," Nichols said. The Guardian reminds us that "between 1990 and 1993 Unterweger murdered 11 prostitutes in Vienna, Prague and Los Angeles, strangling them with a self-styled ligature constructed from his victims' bra straps." Unterweger killed himself in an Austrian prison in 1994."
Ok somebody here has either stayed or knows someone who has stayed at this joint, lets have it.
If a lawyer takes the case of your fictional robber tripping my yard, then he is no better than the criminal of which he represents.
It truly is laughable how ridiculous some cases have become. If someone makes a common mistake an apology is not enough. Lawsuit is the only acceptable apology these days. There are cases where suits are merited, however, those cases are being heavily scrutinized as legit due to large number of leg humping lawyers who are actively pursuing the next leg/ "victim".
