Rosemont hotel freezer death

Rosemont hotel freezer death”

The attorney for the family of Kenneka Jenkins said Friday they had not received any video evidence from Rosemont police that shows the 19-year-old woman entering a hotel walk-in freezer, where she was found dead over the weekend.

Protesters and family members converged on the hotel Wednesday, demanding answers from the village government and hotel operators.

Chicago Tribune reports that Andrew Holmes, a Chicago community activist who worked with law enforcement agencies during his days as an anti-violence advocate, stated that he saw the hotel's surveillance footage of the morning in question.

A Chicago activist claims to have seen surveillance footage of Kenneka Jenkins in the hours before her mysterious death. Police did confirm they are looking into video from 47 surveillance cameras in the hotel as well as viral video footage appearing to show Jenkins partying in the hotel hours before her death. Additionally, the Crowne Plaza Hotel offered to pay for Jenkins' funeral. There has yet to be a ruling on the cause and manner of Jenkins' death.

Follow Tess on Twitter. Police have told ABC7 from the beginning of their investigation they do not suspect any foul play is involved in the young woman's death.

According to Holmes, the video that he viewed showed Jenkins wandering around the area seemingly disoriented. "Did anybody force her down there?", Holmes said.

Facebook videos purportedly taken from a hotel room party Jenkins was said to have been at have been shared thousands of times. Holmes said Jenkins appeared to be trying to find an elevator to return to the birthday party she was attending on the ninth floor of the hotel.

About 4 a.m., Jenkins' friends called her mother to tell her they could not find her, Holmes has said. Was there anybody on the other side of the room when she got down there?

"Holmes dismissed those theories, saying they are "'just something they made up on social media". "Our hearts go out to Kenneka's mother, her family, and friends", Glenn Harston said, according to Chicago Tribune". "It could be a blue child, a purple child - it doesn't matter". They caused other disruptions to the hotel's business as well.

"As interviews continue, the names and whereabouts of more people present that night are being discovered", the department's press release says.

Community activists seized upon the case after Martin complained about what she believed was a lack of urgency in the initial response by the hotel and police.

Still, Jenkins' family wasn't pleased with the alleged discovery. Police say she was last seen at a party at the hotel Saturday. The Medical Examiner's Office reports an autopsy on Jenkins was inconclusive but they are awaiting toxicology results, which could take several weeks.

The entire Crowne Plaza at Rosemont family grieves the death of Kenneka Jenkins.
