Police Reports Reveal New Details Into Kenneka Jenkins' Mysterious Death”

The Rosemont Police Department on Friday officially closed the case of Kenneka Jenkins, ruling the 19-year-old's death was accidental, and also releasing a massive trove of reports, video, and even crime scene photos of the teen's body inside the hotel freezer where it was discovered.

There has been much speculation surrounding the circumstance of Jenkins's death with some believing foul play was involved despite Rosemont police categorising its investigation as noncriminal.

-At 7:14 a.m., Jenkins' mother calls Rosemont Public Safety to report her daughter is missing.

Rosemont police said that they plan to release photos of Jenkins today, but they already released some particularly sensitive photos to the family yesterday, according to the Sun-Times. "The pictures are graphic and disturbing images and inexplicably show portions of [her] body exposed".

"Numerous requests for any and all videos and photos showing Ms. Jenkins going into the freezer of her own volition have not been forthcoming, and quite frankly raise more questions than answers as to how and why Ms. Jenkins was found in the condition in which she was located", the attorneys also said.

Attorneys Larry Rogers Jr. and Sam Adam Jr. said in a statement that the newest photos were "of a personal, private and indecent nature".

The announcement comes more than a month after the teen's body was found September 10, inside a freezer in an unused kitchen at a hotel, where Jenkins had attended a party in a room paid for with a stolen credit card. Hotel employees made the grisly discovery 24 hours after she disappeared while attending a party in the building.

Jenkins is seen struggling to maintain her balance in the hallway of the hotel.

Jenkins's death was ruled accidental, and the Cook County medical examiner determined the cause to hypothermia from cold exposure with alcohol intoxication listed as a contributing factor.
