Elisa Lam update: The LAPD has not ruled out foul play in the death of the Canadian tourist whose body was found in one of the building's water cisterns. This reportedly debunks rumors that the investigators had ruled out any kind of cause of death in this case. It's fortunate that they've chosen to clarify these facts because the misinformation can go out of control with all of the focus on the gruesome parts of this tragic case.
An autopsy last week couldn't find a definitive cause of death, but that doesn't mean they've ruled out foul play. It also doesn't mean she was definitely murdered. The point is that no such details are being made public yet until toxicology reports are in and other parts of the investigation are complete. Then her cause of death will (hopefully) be revealed.
Whatever happened to Elisa Lam, she has certainly made an impact on many in the countryÂ—an impact that may last a very long time.
