“I heard there that on the roof there was a dead body in the water tank. I’m really disgusted,” she said.
“Wouldn’t you be if there was a dead body in the water tank you’re drinking from?”Capt. Jaime Moore with the Los Angeles Fire Department said the tank where the body was found supplied the rooms with water for showers and sinks, as well as being used to clean the hotel’s linens.

The Department of Public Health took a water sample Tuesday and determined there was no biohazard.Rescue crews cut into the side of the cistern with a chain saw to remove the body after draining the holding tank.

Pippa Beaumont, 26, of South Africa rushed out of the Cecil on Tuesday afternoon, pulling two suitcases and a white bag along Main Street. She hadn’t bothered to check in.

“I’m a bit freaked out, I’m traveling alone,” said Beaumont, who had just flown in from Canada as part of her vacation in North America and heard about the body.

“I never would’ve thought.”Demetrius Wyman, 23, a downtown resident, said he saw posters of Lam around the neighborhood since she vanished.

“It’s common for people to go missing around here,” he said, “but not dead and missing, especially in a water tank.”
