Viral FB video is now the focus in investigation into 19 year old found dead in hotel freezer


Police are now investigating the death of a young women found in a Rosemont hotel walk-in freezer. They are now reviewing video on social media that shows the victim in a ninth-floor room before she disappeared over the weekend.

Investigators have been going over surveillance video and questioning witness but have yet to figure how Kenneka Jenkins died and how she got in the freezer. Jenkins mother last seen her around 11:30 pm Friday getting ready to go to a party. Jenkins sister last spoke with her around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. According to authorities this was close to the time she went missing. Her body was discovered a day later in hotel freezer.

Jenkins mother was told by police that her daughter apparently let herself into the freezer while drunk and died inside. An autopsy revealed failed results could not determine the cause of death. The medical examiner’s office said it was awaiting toxicology tests and further investigation by police.

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

Mach also said that authorities have identified most of the people on the video.

“Yes, they’ve looked at it and continue to look at it and all the other social media videos and posts,” Mack told the Tribune on Monday. “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.” —-“I don’t think anything has been ruled in or ruled out at this point,” Mack said. “It’s just considered a death investigation at this point.”
