“ELISA LAM and the Dark History of the CECIL HOTEL” | 7 True PARANORMAL Stories! #WeirdDarkness

In the world of strange disappearances and deaths, occasionally there is one particularly imbued with odd events and bizarreness that lurches out to capture the public imagination and lodge itself into the annals of the truly weird. These are the cases which surround themselves with nearly impenetrable clues, and taunt us with inexplicable details and strangeness that seem to get ever more deeply weird the more we look at them and try to understand them. One such unsolved death is the tragic case of a young woman who died under enigmatic circumstances and left behind clues that not only deepen the mystery but which continue to baffle and stir the imagination and debate to this day. It is a disappearance and death which has launched itself into the pantheon of the most amazingly mysterious, bizarre, and most talked about deaths in modern history, and which is shrouded in shadows of the supernatural, high strangeness, and disturbing synchronicity. I’m Darren Marlar and this is Weird Darkness…


IN THIS EPISODE: 21-year-old Elisa Lam’s mysterious death at LA’s notorious Cecil Hotel remains unsolved over five years after the eerie events first took place. (The Elisa Lam Mystery) *** I will share a personal story – something that happened to me personally only last night. (Last Night’s Bedroom Visitor) *** A strange, unidentified humanoid creature has been spotted near Mount Vernon just outside of the nation’s capital. (Monster In Washington) *** What began as a pleasure boating trip for two best friends ended up in murder and tragedy. (The Fort Monroe Tragedy) *** Do ghosts lurk deep within the wilderness? I’ll share some true ghost stories from park rangers and other outdoor workers that suggest spirits dwell where the living do not. (Wilderness Workers Ghost Stories) *** A Weirdo family member tells us about his brother – and his brother’s girlfriend who was not the kind of girl you’d typically find next door. (My Brother Was Dating A Witch) *** AND MORE!
