Today we get a look into the mysterious death of Elisa Lam who went missing on January 31, 2013. You may remember the news reports of the 21-year-old Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver whose body was known to be found weeks later inside a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013. So, she went missing on January 31, and her body was reportedly found February 19. Maintenance workers at the Cecil Hotel discovered the body when investigating complaints from guests about the low water pressure. On February 21, two days after her body was found,  the coroner’s office reported that they had found her death to be an accidental drowning, with bipolar disorder as a significant factor.

The news of her disappearance was reported world wide and interest increased a week before her body’s discovery when the LAPD released a 4 minute video recovered from an elevator security camera showing a person known to be Elisa Lam behaving very strangely. The elevator video was posted to many sources online and view counts are in the tens of millions. However, the video is an artifact in itself with an indiscernible timestamp and some also claim the video speed is altered.

There is still very little information regarding the circumstances of Elisa Lam’s death.  There are many unresolved issues, loose ends, unexplainable coincidences, and odd connections. For example, the unusual similarity to the 2005 film Dark Water a remake of the 2002 Japanese film by the same name. The 2002 film includes a problematic elevator and discolored water that gushes from the building’s faucets and that eventually leads to the discovery of a young girl drowned in building’s water tank. There are other films that were inspired by Lam’s case and a major one currently in production titled The Bringing by Sony Pictures.

Guest – John Lordan is an actor, writer, director and performer. His work can be found at lordanarts.com.  He’s posted several videos on his youtube channel GeekenDorx discussing the Elisa Lam case. He is continuing the investigation in collaboration with others online who are concerned about the case. Without getting too deep into the esoteric realm of ritual murder and numerology, John focuses on stripping away the implausible and then evaluating the remaining facts.

In this show, we are going into detail about the power of the belief system known as Scientology.  L. Ron Hubbard, the creator of Scientology was born in March 1911, and passed January 1986.  Early in his writing career, he was known for his science fiction and fantasy stories. At some point later, Hubbard outlined a metaphysical self help system called Dianetics. These concepts evolved into a set of rituals and eventually became a foundation for the Church of Scientology. The church was established in 1954. It was later recognized as a tax-exempt religion in the United States. Scientology branched out around the world, to South Africa, Australia, Sweden, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, and Spain. Today the Church of Scientology continues to launch massive campaigns and recruit new members while amassing billions. When you hear about Scientology in the mainstream media, it’s usually when a celebrity disconnects from the church, or when a former member is being stalked, and harassed by the church for leaving.

Guest – Tony Ortega has been writing about it since 1995 and is the executive editor of the Raw Story and formerly the editor of the Village Voice. Tony jokingly calls his website the Underground Bunker. It can be found at TonyOrtega.org. We get a fascinating insight into the belief systems within Scientology and talk about the HBO film by Oscar winner Alex Gibney called Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. The film is based on Lawrence Wright’s book Going Clear, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief.

We go back in to the fringe with our next guest David Huggins. He tells the story of essentially losing his virginity to an extra-terrestrial woman in the woods near his Georgia home. The experiences continued throughout his adulthood and he claims to have fathered hybrid children mainly with a female being named Crescent. David says he’s constantly monitored by them. He left Georgia to attend art school in New York City. They followed him there. This is one of the most unusual and compelling abduction cases because he had no recollection until much later in life. Once David’s memories were triggered, a flood of experiences came to the fore. In our culture there is a social stigma surrounding someone who speaks about these experiences. David quickly learned to keep these events to himself and he found a way to cope. He began to paint the startling recollections the best he could remember. I visited David at his home in New Jersey. We talk about his story and his recent book titled Love In An Alien Purgatory: The Life and Fantastic Art of David Huggins.
