Chicago Teen Found Dead in Hotel Freezer, Cops Scan Facebook

Chicago Police Announce Federal Effort At Curbing Violence Via Illegal Gun Crack Down

Kenneka Jenkins, 19, was found dead early Sunday morning in a walk-in freezer at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois.

"To me, I feel like they helped kill my child: the police department and this hotel", Teresa Martin said during an interview with local outlets. She told the Chicago Tribune during an interview on Monday that hotel staff and police waited hours before they started searching for Kenneka. Jenkins was later found inside an industrial freezer on Sunday night, more than 24 hours after her disappearance and was pronounced dead on site. (Police apparently told family that Jenkins was seen "staggering" drunk near the hotel front desk on surveillance video.) An autopsy was performed on Sunday but no cause of death was confirmed.

Jenkins went missing after leaving her home in Chicago's West Side around 11:30 p.m. on Friday.

Rosemont spokesman Gary Mack said police are reviewing a Facebook Live video that appears to show Jenkins sitting on a bed in a hotel room with other people around her.

"Yes, they've looked at it and continue to look at it and all the other social media videos and posts", Mack said.

The video - which has been viewed more than 3 million views - features a woman periodically talking on the phone and smoking in mirrored sunglasses talking to the camera.

Martin told Chicago news network WGN that police told her that Jenkins was "so drunk she couldn't hold herself up".

The clip has fueled speculation online that the young woman's death was no accident, with skeptics endeavoring to decode the video and surface clues that point to a potential setup. According to Martin, the family also called police trying to get help.

Three local universities have been named among the best
The graduation rate moved up 2 percent to 78 percent and the first-year retention rate increased 1 percent to 94 percent. Among public universities, LSU is ranked 48 among high school counselors out of 162 public universities listed.

Mack said he didn't know if the freezer was on at the time.

"Best friend, no friend, you're a suspect, you was in there, just come forward", Holmes said.

"I don't think anything has been ruled in or ruled out at this point", Mack said. "If it was unused, I don't know".

"These are all precious hours, especially when I went between four-ish and five-ish", she said. "This is not an area where anyone would typically be who was a guest in the hotel". And I asked them for the detective name and sergeant name...

Jenkins' family said they have their doubts about what happened, and that they're most upset because they tried to find her shortly after she disappeared - but were unable to until it was too late.

Now, police are investigating her death, and eyeing surveillance video and videos from social media in the process.

Police have also declined to disclose whether Jenkins' body showed signs of trauma. "Because people try to dupe them, they're generally not going to open (a guest's) door and say, 'What are you doing?' Their first obligation is to their guest, and not to the person who comes in off the street".
