Kenneka Jenkins' Mother and Family Disputes Activist’s Account Of Her Daughter's Death From Surveillance Footage.




UPDATE: 
Kenneka Jenkins, family & friends whose body was found in a Rosemont hotel freezer, are asking the FBI to get involved into the investigation of her death.
Jenkins' friends and family marched from the high school she attended on the West Side to the FBI Chicago headquarters.
Those activists came to the headquarters to demand the FBI's involvement in the investigation and are threatening an economic boycott of Rosemont if they don't get more information on how and why Jenkins died.
“I’m just looking for help, that’s all I’ve been asking for since day one," said Teresa Martin, Jenkins' mother.



The family of Kenneka Jenkins, who was found dead in an Illinois hotel’s walk-in freezer, also has disputed the account of an activist who said that surveillance footage showed there was no foul play involved in her death.
Jenkins, 19, attended a party at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center on September 8 with friends. Jenkins later went missing and her body was eventually discovered in a walk-in freezer at around 1:00 A.M. on Sunday.
Andrew Holmes, a Chicago community activist who has been working with the family on the case, told the Chicago Tribune on Thursday that police had shown him the hotel surveillance footage.

Holmes said that the footage showed Jenkins waiting in the hotel lobby while her friends returned to the ninth floor room where they had been partying. Jenkins took the elevator to a lower level of the hotel and wandered around, opening different doors. She eventually opened two doors in a kitchen area and went into the walk-in freezer, where the doors close behind her, according to Holmes’ account of the footage.
But Jenkins’ mother, Teresa Martin, later said that Holmes had not been appointed to represent her family in the case. 

At a protest outside the hotel on Thursday evening, Martin answered “yes” when asked by a woman if the information given by Holmes at the earlier press conference was false, the Tribune reported.
In a Facebook Live video posted on Thursday, Martin said that Holmes had called her and asked her to urge protesters to stop picketing the hotel, as it was losing money.

Rosemont police said in a Thursday statement that they had released hotel surveillance footage to Martin’s attorneys at their request. “They will now be able to view this footage at their convenience yet still have the opportunity to come to the police station at any time to discuss or review the footage with investigators,” said the police statement. 
A spokesman for the Crowne Plaza hotel said on Thursday that the hotel had offered to pay for Jenkins' funeral.
Rosemont police said on Wednesday that they had interviewed 12 people involved in the incident, including eight who were present with Jenkins on the night and morning when she went missing.
An autopsy conducted by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office on Sunday failed to determine a cause of death. 
Police are waiting on further investigations and a toxicology report to try and determine what killed Jenkins.
