My questions on Elisa Lam : TrueCrime


So I’m certain most are accustomed to the case, particularly with Netflix not too long ago asserting its docu-series about it and the resort the place she was discovered (but when not, see extra here).

My questions/feedback concerning the case are concerning the lack of particulars supplied by the post-mortem. After studying it over, I discovered full toxicology panel wasn’t run due to the shortage of blood left in her physique to pattern. So there’s no option to conclusively inform whether or not she had psychoactive medicine like fentanyl or opiates and even ibuprofen for that matter in her physique.

Second, why is there no estimate on how lengthy her physique had been within the tank? That’s what I initially seemed into the post-mortem for, I wished to know if there was any concept how lengthy her physique was within the water. There’s a giant hole between the final day she was seen (2/1/13) and the day she was discovered (2/19/13). I’m unsure how ranges of physique decomposition is decided when analyzing a drowned physique, however shouldn’t now we have a greater concept of how lengthy the physique was within the tank primarily based on the extent of bloating and discoloration of the pores and skin?

In any case, I simply wished to throw these questions/considerations that I’ve on the market since that is such a scorching matter proper now. If anybody has any concepts about what this lack of information means, I’d love to debate.
