Mother Of Woman Found In Hotel Freezer Claims Police Didn't Do Enough

Chicago Teen Found In Freezer? Kenneka Jenkins Was Found Dead Under Suspicious Circumstances

In the footage, a woman wearing mirrored sunglasses is seen smoking and talking to the camera. That other side of the room can be partially seen through her glasses. The video has since gone viral, and has gotten more than 3 million views. Social media users have been using the hashtag #KennekaJenkins to share theories of what happened to the woman, with many accusing her friends of foul play.

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

About 20 hours after Jenkins' mother received that frantic phone call from her friends, Jenkins was found dead in the freezer. The last time the two had contact was around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, when the sister got a text message from Jenkins, she told the Tribune.

Martin said she knows her daughter attended a party in a room there Friday night with a group of friends, but the friends, whose stories she says have changed quite a bit since that night, came back home the next morning with Jenkins's auto and cell phone but not Jenkins.

The freezer, which was not being used to store food, was located in a construction site of the hotel.

Teresa Martin knows one thing for sure: The body of her daughter was found inside of a large cooler in the kitchen of the Crowne Plaza Hotel on River Road in Rosemont, Ill.

Martin, however, believes something else happened.

On top of that, when she asked for the names and badge numbers of the police sergeant and the detective handling the case, they initially refused to give them to her.

A Chicago teen was found dead in a hotel's walk-in freezer, a day after she went missing from a party she attended with friends.

But Martin has since questioned that account, telling local media gathered outside her home Sunday that the friends' description of events keeps changing.

Martin and her older daughter, Leonore Harris, went door to door at the hotel looking for Kenneka.

When speaking with reporters on Monday, she said that members of the hotel's staff and police waited hours before they started their search for Jenkins.

"I believe someone in this hotel killed my child", said Martin.

Mack told the Tribune it may take weeks to find out what happened to Kenneka as the medical examiner's office awaits results from the toxicology tests.

Jenkins' mother said authorities told her the freezer, though in a vacant part of the hotel complex, was functioning and cold, the Tribune reported.

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.
