But there would have been no reason for a perp to think that LE would be immediately looking anywhere for anyone, as Elisa wasn't missing at the time, so there is no reason to justify such an elaborate, risky, and difficult place to hide her body. The effort and risk that would have been required to put her in the tank (and again, I think people are drastically underestimating this) would have been far greater than leaving her in an inconspicuous place on the roof.
Not if they are a resident on the 14th floor and had her body in their room... And especially not if they have an accomplice/look out Imo
Tenants have every right to deny LE to enter their home/hotel room as at that time Elisa was only presumed missing
also bc CA state laws protect you from unlawful search and seizure of your property without probable cause/warrant. Just because someone is missing, that does not give LE probable cause to issue a warrant for every single room. Even then its dicey.
At any rate, the dogs didn't indicate her body being in the cistern during the early phases of the investigation into her disappearance.
The standard hotel is right across the street. It houses countless numbers of sexual predators, not just offenders! It once was a housing specifically for sexual predators, but the city of LA decided, "why not allow the offenders to stay and fill the vacant rooms by turning it into a hotel?!"
And the standard hotel is born.
Someone from the standard long term residential could have been friends with another long term resident at the Cecil... Would allow them two locations to hide body/commit crime. IMO
