19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins was found dead in a walk-in freezer Sept 10th, at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont. Cook County medical examiners say the teen’s death was an accident, the toxicology report says that Kenneka Jenkins had been intoxicated and they also found that the teen had Epilepsy medication in her system at the time of her death.
Ultimately saying that Jenkins died from “Hypothermia” after being in the walk-in freezer for some time.
Toxicology test detected that Jenkins blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.112, which is higher than the 0.08 BAC level which is considered that Jenkins was legally drunk for motorists in the state of Illinois.
Factors in Kenneka Jenkins cause of death was due to cold exposure, and the alcohol and drugs found in her system capable of hastening the onset of hypothermia and death. It’s been said that Kenneka Jenkins did not have a prescription for the drugs found in her system at the time, her family told this to investigators.
“Alcohol and topiramate are synergistic. When combined, the effect of either or both drugs is enhanced. Topiramate, like alcohol, can cause dizziness, impaired memory, impaired concentration, poor coordination, confusion and impaired judgment,” the news release said. “Central nervous system depression, or impairment, combined with cold exposure can hasten the onset of hypothermia and death.”
Kenneka Jenkins death has become a major controversy, with not only friends and family questioning foul play. But the Internet has became invested and solving what many feels is a cover-up or conspiracy going on. Kenneka Jenkins attended a party with friends at the Rosemont Crown Plaza on Sept 8th. She was reported missing by her mother early morning Sept 9th by her mother Teresa Martin after friends said Jenkins went missing. Authorities speculated that Jenkins walked into the freezer by accident, surveillance footage released by authorities show Jenkins wandering the hotel hallways drunk and others walking within just minutes of missing Kenneka Jenkins walk pass. The video footage also shows Jenkins entering the kitchen area as well but that’s it stops. There is no footage that shows Jenkins actually walking up to or in the freezer closing herself in it. Even though in many earlier statements release by spokesman Andrew Holmes stated that there had been footage showing Jenkins walking into the freeze. The autopsy also said that there had been no signs of an altercation and no evidence of trauma due to abuse.
But here is where it gets fishy because the autopsy also states that Jenkins’ brain was swollen at the time of death and that she had a laceration on her right ankle and a lesion on her thigh.
My Opinion about the Jenkins case is that someone is definitely trying to hide and cover what really happened to Kenneka Jenkins up. It’s been said that the person who rented the hotel room for the party had been a fraudulent credit card and yet no one has been charged or arrested for it. There was also over 30 people alone at this hotel party and yet no one could find Jenkins when she allegedly went missing. There is also video footage that was filmed by the people at the party that shows the teens had alcohol and drugs at the party as well. There have been multiple videos released by authorities that I feel has been purposely edited and edited poorly that shows and tell a very different story as to what really happened to Kenneka Jenkin.
The hotel it self-has been linked with or allegedly having ties to organ harvesting. Now the examiners are trying to say that she died due to hypothermia I’m just not buying it, but yet he brain had swollen ummm??? You tell me if that sounds right to you????.
Teresa Martin continues to protest outside of the Rosemont Crowne Plaza hotel for the hotel and the police to release the full 36 hours of video that shows just what really happened to Kenneka Jenkins, authorities have yet to release the full 36 hours instead they have only release clips of Kenneka wandering around the hotel.
