Taken outside a window of The Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, The Cecil is infamous for being a part-time home to serial killer “The Night Stalker,” as well as the murder victim “The Black Dahlia.”
But more recently, The Cecil is known as the location that Canadian tourist Elisa Lam died in a strange incident where her body was discovered in the hotel’s water tank.
According to ABC7:
Koston Alderete, a Riverside boy with a love of scary films and ghost stories, took the picture, which shows a ghostly figure outside a fourth floor window. He says it looks a little too real.
“When I looked at that window, it just looked kind of creepy to me, and then I showed my friend, and he kind of freaked out. It just creeps me out still,” said Alderete.
Alderete says his ghost photo has already cost him some sleep and caused him to have a nightmare.
