Sounds Like the Plot to a CSI Episode
I didn't think real murderers hid their victims' bodies in things like water towers.
The body of a missing Canadian woman has been discovered in a cistern that was being used to provide drinking water to guests in a Los Angeles hotel.
Officials are trying to reassure people by saying that since there was so much water in the cistern, the water was perfectly fine. Nothing to worry about. I don't think they're going to get much traction with that line of logic, though.
And i appreciate how they're being circumspect, saying they're not sure yet if it was foul play or an accident. Not quite sure how you end up in a cistern on the roof of a hotel by accident.
To get to the tanks, which are on a platform at least 10 ft above the roof, someone would have to go to the top floor then climb a staircase and enter a locked door and turn off an emergency alarm that prevents roof access. Another ladder would have to be taken to the platform and a person would have to climb the side of the tank.
That would be some accident. Everybody with water towers needs to implement a policy of checking those things everyday now cause i do not want to find out one day that i've been showering in corpse water.
