A Funeral Service For Kenneka Jenkins Has Been Scheduled For This Weekend, Her Mother Announced On Saturday.




Tereasa Martin released details of Jenkins’ funeral, which will be this Saturday September 30th, 2017 with the wake beginning at 11 a.m. at the House of Hope, 752 E. 114th St., in Chicago, with the funeral to follow at noon.



Tereasa said she decided to move the funeral from Thursday to Saturday to accommodate more supporters, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.




19 Year Old Kenneka Jenkins' death has drawn national attention since she was found in a freezer at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont.






Activists have called for the FBI to investigate the Rosemont Police Department's handling of the case. The FBI has declined to intervene.

Rosemont police have released 9 video clips showing Jenkins walking through the hotel in the hours before her death. 







She can be seen walking unsteadily through the hotel's kitchen before disappearing around a corner, but none of the released footage shows her entering the freezer.

Kenneka left her home near the United Center at 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 8 to go to a party in a room of the Crowne Plaza, police said. Jenkins' sister last heard from her via text message about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.







She was last seen by her friends at a party on the 9th floor of the hotel in the early hours of Sept. 9. Jenkins was reported missing that afternoon, and authorities found her in the freezer shortly after midnight.

Jenkins' body has been released to her family, a spokeswoman for the Cook County medical examiner's office said on Saturday. 






Autopsy results are pending toxicology tests and further investigation.
