LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a Canadian woman whose body was discovered in a downtown Los Angeles hotel's rooftop water tank accidentally drowned.

 

   Coroner's Lt. Fred Corral says 21-year-old Elisa Lam's cause of death was ruled an accident on Thursday. Corral says the body had no sign of trauma indicating foul play. Lam also had bipolar disorder.

 

   Lam traveled alone to Los Angeles from Vancouver, British Columbia, on Jan. 26 and was last seen five days later by workers at the historic Cecil Hotel near Skid Row.

 

   Before she died, hotel surveillance footage showed Lam inside an elevator pushing buttons and sticking her head out the doors, looking in both directions.

   Lam's body was found on Feb. 19 in the water tank after hotel guests complained of low water pressure.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A one-time appellate court judge is being appointed to fill a vacant St. Clair County court position after the judge who once held the job resigned over drug charges.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports Republican Steven P. McGlynn was named to the post Wednesday, replacing Mike Cook.

Cook resigned in May after being charged with heroin and gun possession as part of a widening courthouse drug scandal.

He was charged in the case after the March death of colleague who died from a cocaine overdose at Cook's western Illinois hunting cabin.

McGlynn was appointed to the appellate court in 2005, but lost an election bid the next year. He was later appointed to the county circuit court following a retirement. He lost another judgeship election last year.
