Netflix has finally unveiled the official trailer to Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel. The docuseries, which premieres this February 10, covers the case of Elisa Lam — one of the many deaths that had happened in the infamous Cecil Hotel in California.
Watch the trailer below:
The series is the first season of a docuseries about the locations of famous crimes. It aims to deconstruct the case of Elisa Lam who disappeared while she was staying at the hotel in 2013. She was later found naked, floating in the hotel’s water tank, an area that’s difficult to access for anyone without setting off the alarm.
The only piece of evidence for this case was a surveillance video of Lam acting peculiar while in the elevator. This video went viral on the internet when it first revealed to the public, with internet sleuths speculating on what truly happened.
The documentary series will also look into the hotel’s dark history. Some of the hotel’s previous guests include famous serial killers Richard Ramirez or the “Night Stalker” and Jack Unterweger, who stayed in the hotel in 1985 and 1991, respectively. The hotel is also the scene of many murders, accidents, and suicides since it opened in 1927.
