I am certain my of the individuals on this sub have watched the docuseries launched as we speak on the demise of Elisa Lam. I bear in mind this story from across the time it occurred when the video surfaced and was spreading round social media.
I really feel the documentary and the individuals they interviewed helped to offer the viewers the complete image of the case which was not extensively recognized on the time. The issue in as we speak’s society is that anybody can specific themselves and their very own ideas on one thing and this in flip fuels the human nature of being fascinated by conspiracy, thriller and the unknown. The ‘Web sleuths’ most likely helped to blow this out of proportion and turned this case into one thing it by no means was. I like true crime tales, and the fascination of a thriller is charming to an viewers. This may typically cloud the judgement and reasoning when making an attempt to unravel an occasion.
Earlier than they even clarified the error of the tank being discovered closed, I did suppose that the statements made by police that the lure door was discovered closed by police was a foolish error contemplating we discovered that it was a lodge worker who initially discovered her within the tank. The police did not discover her, and weren’t the primary ones okay the scene.
It reveals us that human error is an unlucky factor and it was clear that the detective who initially searched the roof and did not discover something was emotional thay he did not verify the tank.
I additionally felt for ‘Morbid’, the musician, as he was demonised wrongly and accused of her homicide. Perhaps individuals do not settle for his work as artwork, however what is the distinction between a sombre tune about demise, and a fictional crime sequence written by a celebrated creator. Morbid had a model, his model and look was his model that bolstered his music. However it was clear in his interview that he’s not the identical individual as his musical persona.
There are numerous tragedies on this story, primarily the demise of a younger lady who was struggling, who’s life was reduce quick as she was discovering a wider world. However the different tragedies are the failures of society who’ve aren’t happy with an inexpensive rationalization, and would like to consider one thing extra sinister was happening. This was emphasised when one ‘sleuth’ said he did not settle for the coroner’s report as he ‘had spent tons of of hours on this case and did not consider it to be true. Clearly it is a scenario the place these individuals had been unhappy that their work making an attempt to unravel the case was considerably in useless.
