It is always horrible news when you hear about the death of anyone, especially someone so young; but it is even more troubling when death was caused by heinous acts. The death of 19-year old Chicago native Kenneka Jenkins on Sunday, September 10th, caused a firestorm online when Jenkins body was found in the freezer of The Crowne Plaza hotel.Jenkins attended a party with some friends that was held at the hotel. Her friends contacted her mother and told her Jenkins had gone missing and that they were getting ready to leave. After the story was released, many people on social media played detective and came up with their own ideas of what happened to the 19-year old.
After the story was released, many people on social media played detective and came up with their own ideas of what happened to the 19-year old.It’s speculated that Jenkins was set up by some “friends” to be raped and murdered for $200. A video from one of the attendees posted on Facebook Live has been circled around the internet and many people claim that the video is proof that Jenkins death was a result of foul play. While the story has a lot of holes. I do believe the people in the hotel room know more than they are claiming to know, this story has more questions, not enough clear answers and a lot of unanswered questions!
- Who were all the people in the room and were they all real friends of Kenneka Jenkins?
- Jenkins Mother, Teresea Martin, claims that the stories of her friends contradict each other, Are her friends hiding something?
- How was she able to open the freezer door inebriated?
- Aren’t most freezers in hotels or any institution closed off?
- Was Jenkins actually raped?
- Why was the hotel dragging their feet about finding the missing young lady?
- Why would “friends” leave a party when one of their friends is missing?
- Would this story have gone unnoticed if Black Twitter didn’t make it go viral?
- Who drove her mothers car back to the house?
This is one of the saddest yet most confusing stories that I have ever heard of. The most important thing is that the family gets the answers that they have asked. If foul play contributed to Jenkins death the perpetrators need to be brought to justice! #JusticeforKenneka
