The death of 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins continues to be a mystery days after her lifeless body was discovered in a walk-in freezer at a Rosemont hotel.
Outrage has spread across social media because of the lack of information police have given the public about her death, as well as the lack of urgency authorities have seemed to have about it. Here's what we know so far: Last Friday night, the teenager went to a hotel party with her friends. But, her friends ended up losing track of her.
That's when Jenkins' family began looking for her. When they couldn't find Jenkins, they informed police that she was missing. At 12:25am Sunday morning, the teen's body is discovered in a freezer. Cops have said that Jenkins' walked herself into it. But, her mother contests this. Since this news broke, there has been video footage surfacing that shows Jenkins' hanging out at the hotel, before her death.
According to Chicago Tribune, the first video "which has gotten more than 4 million views — features a woman in mirrored sunglasses talking to the camera. Reflected in her glasses is the other side of the hotel room, where Jenkins appears to be sitting." A second video showed her "staggering" by a desk. Now, there's another clip where viewers can see Jenkins' leaving the party. Take a look at it below.
