(WHAS11) --  A dead body was found inside the water tank of a California hotel.

Surveillance video from the Cecil Hotel in January shows a 21-year-old Elisa Lam checking in and acting like she's hiding from someone in the elevator. Lam disappeared days later.

The hotel's maintenance man found her body inside one of the water tanks when he was responding to guest complaints of low water pressure.

The LA County Department of Public Health immediately placed the hotel on a flush-only order but did not order a shut down, as long as it provides guests with bottled water.

This is not the first time something like this has happened at the Cecil Hotel, two serial killers lived there in the 80's.
