Who was Kenneka Jenkins?

She was a 19 year-old Chicago teen who went out to a party with some friends Friday night around 11:30 p.m. Sadly, she was found dead in a suburban hotel freezer that following Sunday after midnight.

How did Jenkins die?

Unknown. Autopsy reports are still pending as of this writing, and police are tight-lipped. However, the story has taken the internet by storm as many people, including Jenkin’s mother and sister, suspect foul play.

What do people on the internet think?

Many people also suspect that something’s fishy, so much so that they believe Jenkins was violated by a group of men prior to being murdered and left in the freezer. There are other conspiracy theories that center around robbery, trafficking and rape. So far, nothing is confirmed as to what led to her death.

Are there any clues to Jenkins disappearance?

From Essence:

 Police told the teen’s family that they spotted her on surveillance video from the hotel “staggering” near the front desk around 3:20 a.m. Saturday. According to reports, the police initially believed she went into the freezer by herself. 

Police confirmed Tuesday that they were investigating a video posted by one of Jenkins friends on Facebook. The video, which has since been viewed millions of times, appears to show Jenkins and others in the hotel in the hours before her disappearance. According to Rosemont spokesman Gary Mack, police have identified most of the people in the video, which shows a woman in glasses, speaking to the camera. In the reflection of her glasses, you can see part of the hotel room, where Jenkins is apparently sitting.

Currently, it is not known how Kenneka died. However, we must avoid jumping to conclusions and blaming the victim i.e.  we shouldn’t say things like,”She should’ve been more careful about the people she called her friends.” Nothing is known about what happened to this poor girl yet. But I hope and pray we get some answers soon.
