On September 16, 2001, a young man checked into a motel in Amanda Park, Washington under the name of Lyle Stevik.
The following day, Stevik was found dead in his room. He had used his belt to hang himself in a closet and left a note that simply read “suicide.”
Although after 17 long years the real identity of Lyle Stevik has been finally uncovered by Internet sleuths, the true horror and mystery is still hiding inside the Room 5.
This photo collection originally appeared in Behind the Tape Photobook.
And here’s a little secret – the Photobook features 10 more unseen GRAPHIC photos of the true horror investigators faced on the day of Stevik’s death, as well as over a hundred more crime scenes.
