It is possible that she hit all those floors down the middle because the bathroom on 14 turned out to be in use & she figured she would stop on each of these floors and peek out towards the bathroom to see if it was available. Being nearsighted myself, the shapes at a distance are out of focus, but you can still make out general light/dark and things such as whether a door is open or closed. Without her glasses, she still may have been able to generally make out from the elevator to see if the bathroom 20 feet away was open. I have another theory on the elevator i'll throw out here. She initially pushed the buttons for the reason I gave above, then she did so again for the very same reason - EXCEPT she was out of the elevator this time. She was out of the elevator off to the side because she was paranoid that someone was watching her in the elevator on the camera and preventing the elevator from closing. She seemed genuinely disturbed when the elevator did not initially close, and then subsequently "tested" the elevator because she didn't understand why it stayed open, thinking that someone was playing games with her. This theory is of course based on the premise that she did not know she hit the elevator-open button at the buttom, but rather pressed that accidentally or in error (thought it was close).
Yes I thought this exact same reason/scenario to explain why she pressed all of the buttons (and accidentally pressed hold)
When she is outside of the elevator it is as if she is trying to explain to someone on the 14th floor that she's just going around looking for a bathroom. I agree when she peers around to the area of the bathroom it seems like shes scared.
But really she just looks jittery like she has to use the restroom and doesn't know if she should just try to wait for the elevator to leave the floor and hope the bathroom becomes unoccupied or if she should just use the stairs to get down to the next floor to find a bathroom.
She could look anxious/panicked/paranoid simply bc she had to go to the bathroom.
Did body language experts take THIS into account for her seeming jittery?
For doing a "pee pee" dance? For standing with her knees together like she's trying to hold her bladder? For grabbing at herself in anxiety of just how bad she had to go?
No body language experts Probably did not. They don't want to associate their talent with dictating mannerisms that indicate digestive/excretive impulses.
She probably ditched the stalled elevator for the stairs again to make it to the bathroom on the next floor down bc she had to GO BAD!
Once she got down to another floor perhaps a "kind patron" offered she could use their private bathroom? It also seems like many of the rooms that have private bathrooms also have fire escape access from the window from all the pictures I have seen.
LE should check the names/ID of all patrons who stayed in rooms with private baths and fire escape access during Jan. 31-Feb.2... IMO
