Kenneka Jenkins 19-year-old Chicago girl was found dead in a hotel freezer Sunday at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, about 30 minutes northwest of Chicago.
Chicago police said they are investigating a Facebook Live video of Kenneka before her death, that they are currently reviewing all footage as well as reviewing all social media activity,”
Fox News report that, Jenkins was last seen attending a party at the hotel, and her mother, Tereasa Martin, said her daughter was intoxicated before stumbling into the freezer.
The decease mother name, Tereasa Martin, said she last saw her at around 11:30 p.m. Friday when she left home on the West Side of Chicago with her friends, they were going to a party to celebrate her new job position at a nursing home, but she had no idea that it would be the last time that she would see her daughter alive.
She said that police, who had access to surveillance video, told her that Jenkins was intoxicated when she walked into the freezer and that “freak accidents like that do occur.”
“It takes strength to open these doors, the freezer doors. So, if she couldn’t hardly hold herself up,” Martin said, “how did she find the strength to unlock both the double doors?”Tereasa Martin added”.
According to ABC news, viral Facebook Live video, shared by Jenkins’ friend just hours before she died, has fueled conspiracy theories about how she may have died.
She said her daughter’s friends called her at around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, saying Jenkins disappeared after they briefly left her alone in a hotel hallway.she rushed to the hotel and asked hotel staff to check surveillance cameras to see if they could help to find her daughter.
Instead, the hotel referred her to police, who she said told her to wait a few more hours because her daughter could be out with friends.
The Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center has directed questions about the case to the Rosemont Police Department.
” Gary Mack, village of Rosemont spokesman said,“They are leaving no stone unturned as far as trying to corral everyone they can and talk to them and interview them about what happened and what was going on that night.”
