Ken’neka Jenkins’ Relatives To Appear On Dr. Oz Show Today

(SL) – Relatives of the young Chicago woman who was found dead in a hotel freezer will appear this afternoon on a national television show. The mother and sister of Kenneka Jenkins are set to discuss the case on “The Dr. Oz Show.”

The 19-year-old was discovered dead early last month after attending a party in a ninth-floor room at the Rosemont Hotel.

Her death was ruled an accident and that she died of exposure to cold, with alcohol and prescription medication as contributing factors.


[Warning] Graphic Ken’neka Jenkins Death Images Raise More Questions As Chicago Police Mark The Case Closed

(SL) –  Chicago police released their files on Ken’neka Jenkins (the teenager found dead in a motel freezer last month) and it raises even more questions about how she really died.

Warning: the images are graphic but after taking one look at them one has to ask  what really happened? Who cut the freezer on? The freezer is littered with trash and dirt so it’s doubtful that it was operating at the time when she entered it.


The Chicago Tribune reports, As part of a release of documents and videos related to the case, Rosemont officials on Friday posted on their website dozens of postmortem photographs of Jenkins taken while her body was still in the hotel freezer where she was found dead.

Police showed the photographs to Jenkins’ family on Thursday, and Sam Adam Jr., a lawyer for Jenkins’ mother Tereasa Martin, called them “graphic and disturbing images (that) inexplicably show portions of Kenneka’s body exposed.”

The release from Adam and Martin’s other attorney, Larry Rogers Jr., said the photos were “of a personal, private and indecent nature.”

Jenkins, 19, was found dead in a Rosemont hotel freezer Sept. 10, about 21 hours after she went missing following a party she attended in a ninth-floor room.

According to Rosemont police reports, she was found on her side, face down, with her left arm underneath her, her right shoe off , hair matted and a small cut on her right foot.

The photographs show that Jenkins was still wearing the jeans and jean jacket shown in surveillance videos of her walking through the hotel before her death, but the bra/shirt beneath her jacket “was pulled up exposing her breasts,” a police report said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office had already classified Jenkins’ death as accidental and caused by hypothermia, with alcohol intoxication listed as a contributing factor.

Rosemont police also said in their release Friday that the hotel room where the party took place was booked with a fraudulent credit card and that they believe they have identified two perpetrators who booked the room. Police said they are “affiliated with a gang on the West Side of Chicago whose operations rely heavily on the use of fraudulent credit cards.”

Police said that case is still ongoing.

Who Cut The Freezer On And Drugged Her? Ken’neka Jenkins’ Autopsy Report Is Suspicious

(SL) – The autopsy report of 19-year old Ken’neka Jenkins, the teen that was found dead in an unoccupied hotel freezer, has finally been released almost a month after it was completed.

Dated Sept. 10th at 10am, the 13-page report says Ken’neka had alcohol and Topiramate (which is used for nerve pain and epilepsy) in her system indicating that she more than likely was slipped a drug sometime during the night.


Previously reported as inconclusive, the report lists the cause of death as hypothermia but questions still abound considering the freezer she was found in was in an unused kitchen in the hotel. So why was the freezer on; and not just on but basically dipped down to freezing. Who cut the freezer/cooler on?

The report suggests that even after the freezer door had been open for two hours the temperature inside was still 34 degrees.

Video shows Ken’neka walking into the kitchen alone but no video has been released proving that she entered the freezer on her own and shut the door.

Kenneka Jenkins Laid To Rest, Death Still A Mystery

(SL) –  In a case that’s either unsolved or closed, depending on who you ask, 19-Year Old Kenneka Jenkins’ family said goodbye to the teen after she was found dead inside a hotel freezer.  She was laid to rest Saturday at the House of Hope Church in Chicago, but her death still remains a mystery.

Earlier reports claimed the teen, under the influence, walked into an unoccupied freezer at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center in suburban Rosemont, Illinois implying that she froze to death.

FUNERAL100117-6-.jpgHowever, most people, including Kenneka’s mom Tereasa Martin believe that foul play was involved but the police have yet to declare her death a homicide. Citing not enough evidence, social media and friends of the young girl paint a different picture.

A video shared by Irene Roberts showed Kenneka in attendance at the party she threw at the Crowne Plaza to celebrate her birthday, but sometime during the night Kenneka left the room and that’s when things went left.

There are reports of gang members being in attendance and audio seems to confirm beliefs that someone was raped during the party.
