*Kenneka Jenkins, a beautiful 19-year-old African American girl, is said to have left home for a party at the Crowne Plaza Hotel near Chicago’s O’Hare Airport around 11 p.m. on September 9.
Hours later her body was discovered in a freezer on the hotel grounds.
According to reports, after a group of her girlfriends that were also at the party claim they couldn’t find her, they called her mom, Teresa Martin.
It was 4 a.m.
Martin rushed to the hotel, but management wouldn’t let her view the hotel’s surveillance video because she didn’t have a missing person’s report.
She got one, but police viewed it and said her daughter was nowhere on the film.
However when a second officer who was listening to Martin asked to see the video again, he noticed Martin’s daughter staggering by the lobby desk.
It was hours later that Kenneka’s body was discovered in a freezer sitting in an underpopulated area of the hotel; an area where construction takes place. Her mother thought this was strange. Then the stories coming from her girlfriends were conflicting.
Police initially said no foul play seemed at work here. Now they are doing further investigation.
Somebody knows something. If you were in the Chicago Crowne Plaza on September 9, or heard something from someone who was, I am sure the police (and Teresa Martin) would love to hear from you.
