Police: Body on roof of LA hotel Canadian tourist
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Police say they have determined that a body found in a water tank on the roof of a downtown Los Angeles hotel is a Canadian tourist who'd been missing for nearly three weeks.
Police spokeswoman Officer Diana Figueroa said Tuesday night that investigators used body markings to identify 21-year-old Elisa Lam, a resident of Vancouver, British Columbia who traveled to California alone and was last seen at the hotel on Jan. 31.
Earlier Tuesday a hotel maintenance worker found the body while looking into complaints of poor water pressure.
Police say they will attempt to determine whether Lam's death was the result of foul play or a bizarre accident.
