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.
True Crime Magazine’s Behind the Tape Photobook features nearly 20 exclusive shots taken inside the infamous Room 5 on the day of Lyle Stevik’s suicide, as well as over a hundred more crime scenes.
