Here's a good question for the lot of you:
What do you make of her behaviour in the security video?
Pressing all the buttons, hiding, hopping, all of this seems very childlike, all seems very jovial. She also gladly speaks to whoever it is outside the elevator.
Also, is anyone going to pay attention to the 2:00 mark where she begins to mime swimming? Perhaps its something else and I'm just interpreting it that way because she died in a water tank. Ideas?
Despite the many opinions on the matter, as far as I recall, the autopsy report mentioned, but did not attempt to attribute their findings to the elevator footage.
The only people who would really have any idea as to what is going on in that video would be Elisa's closest friends, the ones who might have been around Elisa and have known what she was like when she was goofing around or when she was having an episode related to her mental health Dx.
Some people claim that they can attribute the elevator behaviour to a psychiatric condition, and that may be consistent with others having some sort of episode. But that does not exclude other explanations for the behaviour.
As findinganatta said, there are probably a number of pages of discussion elsewhere attempting to 'autopsy' the elevator footage. There are too many unknowns in my opinion to draw a definitive conclusion (eg was she playing or was she having an episode, was there someone outside the elevator, what other footage is there of her on the lifts we have not seen and how was she acting then, how many times did she catch the lift up to level 14 previously, how do those close to Elisa interpret the behaviour and is it consistent with an episode or with her being playful).
There is evidence out there that could help to narrow it down and it doesn't have to remain a total unknown. But the majority of us dont have access to it and the people who do either have failed to collect it or have failed to integrate it into their explanation of the events.
