Family of teen found dead in freezer begs for help

The family of a 19-year-old Chicago woman who was found dead in
a hotel freezer Sunday is begging police for more information about
how she died.
Kenneka Jenkins’ body was discovered in a freezer at the Crowne
Plaza hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, about 30 minutes northwest of
Her mother, Tereasa Martin, said she last saw her at around 11:30
p.m. Friday when she left their home on the West Side of Chicago
with her friends. Martin said they were going to a party to celebrate
her new job position at a nursing home, but she had no idea that it
would be the last time that she would see her daughter alive.
“[I’m] horrified,” Martin told reporters Sunday at a briefing. “It’s
something that no one could ever imagine. It’s unbelievable.”
Jenkins’ body was discovered in an industrial size walk-in freezer in
the basement of the hotel, according to Martin. She said that police,
who had access to surveillance video, told her that Jenkins was
intoxicated when she walked into the freezer and that “freak
accidents like that do occur.”
“It takes strength to open these doors, the freezer doors. So, if she
couldn’t hardly hold herself up,” Martin said, “how did she find the
strength to unlock both the double doors?”
