Chicago police may turn to social media to help solve the tragic case of a 19-year-old teen whose body was found in the freezer of a hotel.

Kenneka Jenkins went missing after she left home Friday night to go bowling with friends. Kenneka's mother, Teresa Martin allowed her responsible daughter to drive her car.

Kenneka's friends returned the car to Teresa early Saturday morning, saying they couldn't find her missing daughter.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kenneka's friends, Irene Roberts and Monifah Shelton, invited her to a party at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel & Conference Center in Rosemont, Illinois late Friday night.

Shelton was an employee at the hotel, where she often held parties in empty rooms and allegedly supplied her friends with drugs and alcohol.

According to social media users, someone allegedly gave Kenneka a date rape drug and plied her with alcohol.

When she was sufficiently drunk, several men were invited to the hotel room to sexually assault Kenneka.

Irene Roberts

The party atmosphere in the hotel room was streamed by Roberts on Facebook Live. Most of the video shows her smoking weed with her friends and listening to music.

Roberts can be heard throughout the video answering cell phone calls and directing people to room #926 in the hotel.

Irene Roberts

Around 4 a.m. Saturday, Roberts returned Teresa Martin's car and Kenneka's cell phone, which Roberts claims Kenneka left inside the hotel room before she went missing.

What happened next is a worrisome series of police indifference that often hinders cases where black people go missing.

    This mad me sad and not wanting to have kids anymore geeze

  • Nala Shakur

    This kept me up ALL NIGHT AND MORNING. Deeply disturbing and out of respect of the fam i will not start with the theories...i'll only speak on it if someone asks. But i think its more to it than bein set up by a friend

  • Nala Shakur

    I have a child and i must tell u, i spend more time in fear or worrying bc of this world we live in...fr...but u gotta have faith. Always ask God for protection and trust He won't let anything happen.

  • Stationarity

    What "more" is there to it?

  • IAmLegend

    I'm asking...leggo

  • Carrington

    Sandra Mae - someone online broke the video down really well and you can hear someone in the room say, "They still in there raping her?" and the chick in the glasses says, "Told you..." at one point in the video you hear someone sounding like they're in severe distress say, "Help me..." and they immediately turned the music up. Savages! Black Lives DO matter and I'm angry that no one is speaking up for this girl and sending ALL of these MFs to jail.
    One of the dudes in the video keeps saying, "Bro, you trippin'..." as you hear someone squealing for help.

  • Nala Shakur

    i dnt want to be disrespecful

  • Carrington

    Then why make this statement? Disrespect is relative. If it helps get these people arrested - SAY what you have to say.

  • Nala Shakur

    Sigh im afraid to express it honestly...im seeing a lot of similar symbolism with color coding and possible ritualitic meanings behind this...

  • Nala Shakur

    I feel like her parents know whats up deep down inside...

  • https://instagram.com/caramelandbougie caramelandbougie

    This is why my grandma ALWAYS said do not accept open drinks from anyone, and watch the bartender make your drink. RIP

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    The worst part to this story, is that this girl went out with people she knew. She wasn't at a stranger's party. She had permission to go with her friends from her mother because they knew the kids. The kids had the audacity to actually go to that girl's mother's face and look her in the eyes after what they done. Disgusting. What's more troubling is that this isn't the first time we've read stories of girls being set up by their friends to get raped. This is a violent world we live in. These kids are now set up to get raped, may get set up to be seckz trafficed, and everything else. You know what else is disturbing? There is a list of pre dit ors waiting to pay money to get with the victims. (some words misspelled on purpose). It's scary out here for a child, AND their parents. My prayers go out to the mother and this child's family, who I am sure is in great despair this morning.

  • Dowoop

    I would like to know.

  • Rayne

    I know this family personally. They have been THROUGH IT!

  • Carrington

    Lawd, guhl, come ON!! I need to know.

  • Clopretty

    This story is so confusing! My heart breaks for the family and i hope they get real answers from investigators and not just the media putting their ideas and theories in. just a senseless incident that shouldn't have taken place at all! I pray justice is served for this beautiful young lady!!

  • Rayne

    I heard the same thing. You can see the guy with the red sweater in the girls glasses and it looks the girl was laying in the bed with those same ripped jeans on. Smh

  • JV

    I would like to know more about the cameras that weren't functioning. Proving foul play with those cameras would go along way.

  • You Could Never

    Shelton was an employee at the hotel, where she often held parties in empty rooms

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    First of all heads are about to beyond roll.

    So this girl was able to hold parties in empty rooms of the hotel. If the age to rent a room was 21, which Im almost sure it is, and the hotel did this knowingly, I want the mom to sue the extra shat outta corporate. I want her to OWN this hotel. AND a sister property.

    Monifah and Irene. I want them arrested. Today. Its enough evidence out in the world right now, that they were involved.

    I also want the mother to file a complaint against Chicago Police who told her to wait. Even though video showed her daughter in the hotel but not going out and there were eye witnesses, employees of the hotel that she is about to hopefully own, who saw her stumbling through drunk.

  • Rachel

    I don't have theory other than who leaves your best friend drunk in the hallway. I think the word Friend is used to easily by kids these days. My child has made some terrible choices in friends who let her down. I told her anyone that you consider a friend you must first test them to see if they are really are your friend in good times and bad.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    see.... some of these young 'ladies' are just as vicious and cold as their male counterparts. I'm always here for our young folks, but in this specific case, everyone involved in harming this child needs to be PUT DOWN. it's obviously too late to 'save' them; they are soulless... evil.... gone!
    they should be euthanized (and that would still be merciful compared to Kenneka's horrific end). round 'em up!
    (RIP to this child, and may God strengthen her mother to fight for justice)

  • Nala Shakur

    I'm only a mere theorist tht goes with first instinct and gut feelings...i always spot certain things bc im either consumed by the information ive come across in the past or just blatant symbolism. The first thing that bothered me aside from the mothers reaction was the color coding (black and red) the media ALWAYS HAS THESE SAME COLORS when something tragic and disturbing takes place. There are so many ppl who are truly disturbed (including myself) by this. And while it is true that people grieve differently, I couldn't get past the colors. Black and red are symbolic for blood sacrifice...

    Bare with me PLEASE bc i mentioned in a previous post, "Power" as an example as to how they use color coding relating to a sacrifice. Everyone aside from ghost who wore black n white (duality- Ghost/James) wore red and black. (Episode where his daughter got killed) the colors purple, blue, all black, all red, also have meanings as well...i typed in "Trayvon Martin Parents Media" each and every time they were on the news they were wearing each of the colors i previously mentioned which was eerie to me as well. I dnt know much about Masons--only what i have read and have been told by friends who come from masonic families...i jus know its nothing to be messed wit...

  • the guest

    Heartfelt condolences to Kenneka's courageous mother who did not give up searching for her child. God bless her and may her beautiful child rest in peace.

    With these sick times we need to change our thinking about adulthood.
    18 and 21 are of legal age but we still need to watch over our children wel into their twenties in this age of insidious bullying, rapes, and murders.

    We need to teach our young adult children standards and how to socialize to where they would not associate with unsavory people and to where they would see certain places and events as beneath them.

    These hotel parties are not for respectable socializing.

    Also, women please be aware:

    This crime of other women drugging and selling other women for rape is common. It used to be commonplace in the Caribbean, especially Bahamas, as way of profiting off of setting up rapes of tourist women.

    Now this crime is commonplace committed against friends by false and disingenuous friends in the US.

    Please urge your daughters (and sons) to not accept drinks they do not pour themselves, do not accept drinks they did not witness the pouring themselves, or do not ever share the drink of friends.

    This may seem shallow but please heed:

    Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, if you have exceptionally good looking children you must each them to be aware and protective in world that targets and harm beautiful people. This is not conceit, this is very real.

    This is the second story in one week on SR about a beautiful young black woman being set up for rape by false friends selling the crime of rape for profit.

  • Ni Ni

    Im glad you posted the rest of the story. I read about this on another site earlier, but they didn't mention all this. I was even commending the young girls because they seemed to be so helpful to the mom but to hear this, smdh. I truly feel sorry for this generation, you can't even trust your "friends" when you're out trying to have a good time.

  • Nala Shakur

    Pls bare wit me and read with an open mind its not coming frm a place of hate nor malice toward the family..this is just how i feel. I hope im wrong but this was my initial reaction

  • Malai

    Can you please just spill your theories and stop taunting us.. I'm getting anxiety ?

  • Ni Ni

    Speak on it....we know you mean well.

  • OP2

    This the time to call someone from the likes of glo-ria Allr-ed team to expose the truth before too much evidence have been tampered with (i.e., urine & blood samples and dna under her nails, etc.). ijs

    -but if she were white, they would be have been on the case already searching security cameras; social media, text msgs, and phones to connect the dots.

  • Malai

    The "friends" returned the car??? I would've went batshit right then and there.. ain't nobody leaving OML

  • Tish

    I tell my son, nieces, and nephews the same! My niece went through bullying and fights from so called friends that were jealous of her because they boys they like liked her. The still tried to harass her until on IG until we took the evidence to the police and they are investigating.

  • Tish

    Poor baby. I hope they get them all!

  • Nala Shakur

    Thank u

  • Ni Ni

    Wow, i wish we had more psa. When i was growing up, we had commercials, short movies, the more you know, etc...to let us know what to look out for. I feel like this young generation are not getting informed.

  • OP2

    Someone pointed out the time used in reporting the returned vehicle.

  • the guest

    The young people today are not informed!
    We would never go to a hotel room for a party. Clubs were dangerous enough but at least they are public places held accountable for its patrons. These secret hotel parties are dangerous because hotels are responsible for their guests not trespassers.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    Today I'm glad I didn't because I'd have little support from family. That village most of us had growing up is becoming a thing of the past.

  • IAmLegend
  • Nina Ross

    These girls are predators never were they her best friends... sick!

  • IAmLegend

    This was in Rosemont, not Chicago. A whole nother animal. Rosemont PD are so lazy its disgusting.

  • IAmLegend

    Watching the fb live videos of them in that hotel room this morning was really disturbing. My heart bleeds for this young lady. They lured her into that room to rape and torture her and then left her in a freezer. Only an employee would have known to do that and the girl in the room who works there orchestrated it all.

  • OP2

    You have to have serious conversations with your kids and keep them inform of happenings so that they can be aware, insightful and proactive in thinking for themselves to avoid the possibility of any would-be situations. -prayer without effort is dead or meaningless. That's why things keep happening because people take the easy way out and hope for miracles instead of following the guidance of God.

    We can't get involved in wrong-doings or that which is not condone by the Holy God, but somehow always expect the outcome to turn out alright.

  • Pamela

    What the hell...?

  • Kanyade

    this broke my heart reading and makes me so angry!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    We know your heart. This is one of the few blogs where you can speak your truth and ppl will listen. May not always agree, but usually this group is respectful of different opinions. Speak up, you may enlighten us. Share your knowledge.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    see..... smh, some of these young 'ladies' are just as vicious and cold as their male counterparts.
    i'm usually here for our young folks, but this particular group here? IF they willingly/knowingly put this girl in danger, they all need to be put down. it's obviously too late to save them. they are soulless.... evil... gone! they need to be euthanized (and that would still be a mercy compared to Kenneka's horrific death). humans are the most evil and unpredictable animals!

    (RIP to this child, and may God strengthen her mother to fight for justice, smh)

  • Kanyade

    Irene and that other heffa need to be charged for murder and rape along with the dudes that raped this child!

  • Juslv374

    You are 100% correct. I told my 18 yr old daughter to not go to any hotel parties for these reasons. Fake jealous friends will set you up in a minute. #Discernment

  • PlayerP

    This is tragically heartbreaking and angrily disgusting at the same time. These alleged friends make sick to my stomach. I've always said it and experienced it too many times, females can be so vicious and snakes in the grass. Smile in your face act like ya'll friends and treat you worse than an enemy behind your back. Prison is too good for them.
    Rest in light baby girl. Prayers up to the family.

  • Ryan

    So these two b|tches and the rapists are still walking the streets? SMDH.

  • Bonsai

    Realty is harsh and it hurts. You think you have friends and you really dont. Beautiful girl, so sad.

  • my view

    please elaborate

  • Kanyade

    yes, please elaborate if you can. my heart is aching for this young woman and her family.

  • You Could Never

    and this is the second time in a week that a rumored rape has been set up in this SAME AREA. there was a story here last week on the same mess. this is whats new in the world? disgusting.

  • You Could Never

    Tell the mom and the family I am SO SORRY for this. My goodness.

  • xenaD

    Idk if the 200 dollar part is real... but I know wtf I heard and something definitely went down in that room! I legit can't even be in the same room as somebody "doing it" much less being drugged and raped.... and the Bitch didn't even bat an eye! They are some cold evil sick ass bitches... and kudos to the fb detectives (

  • Kanyade

    the young men's parents failed them to think that rape is okay and the way to "get some", jesus. this disgusts me. the young women setting up their "friend" thinking this is the way go, doubly disgusts me. i'm sickened.

  • my view

    like what?

  • SpiceGirl

    with friends like those...who need enemies?!!! Rest Easy baby girl. Let us NOT forget.....KARMA wears BIG shoes!!

  • Junkanoo

    With friends like these who needs enemies your suppose to keep an eye on each other when partying with each other .This Monifah Shelton person was right there how can she not know what the hell happened. Throwing drug fueled sex parties at work and streaming parts of the party ? dumb and dumber. This childs mother is heart broken because some shady shit went down and these fools are trying to cover it up.Kenneka never left that hotel since her body was stuffed in the freezer so her so called friends are lying . Poor kid, Rest in power

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

  • Ni Ni

    I'm not gon lie, i might've gone ?. My crew was tight though. We all came from the same traditional values.Many times it was 3-4 of us hanging with a group of dudes. It was a different time though. Today's youth can't afford to even take such chances.

  • Vegas1989

    This is insane! These aren't real friends!. Who would put their real friend in a situation like this. SMH...That's why I can count my real friends on one hand. They be keeping me in check all the time. And it works both ways. Calling me out on my stuff...SMH...See now I'm ready to Punish everyone involved.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    exactly!

    first of all, why the fugg you think you doing me a favor delivering my car but NOT my child??!!!! bish don't move til the police get here! TRY. ME.

  • You Could Never

    My age group had parties at hotels every weekend. I just saw 40.

    Everything goes on at them. underaged drinking. drugs. sex. foolishness. stuff you cant do at your mama nem house so you get someone to get a room and you and your crew go over there to the hotel and cut the damn fool.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    one hand! and NO NEW FRIENDS. crazy bishes!

  • SG

    When I was a teenager, my mom would tell me right away who was and wasn't my friend. I begrudgingly listened but I am glad that I did! She was right every single time. These narcissistic, selfish kids today with their limited social skills and their lack of compassion for other people make me sick.

  • IAmLegend

    The Rosemont PD aren't liable for this crime. The hotel might be but the police did the bare minimum they were required to do. I ain't worried about them. Its these kids that disgust me.

  • ShWa

    ALL of them need to be up under the jail! All of them!

  • freelancepimp .

    This is horrible story but there seems to be a whole lot of speculation from some questionable sources. People are already poingint fingers at the young girl in the video and noone really knows anything.

    For instance the boy in the refleciton, he's just sitting there. Let's not listen to the internet on this one and wait for the invesitigation.

  • Meme

    Please dear Lord open the eyes of the good teenagers who are naïve and somewhat innocent to know that their so called 'best friends' are actually their worst enemies. These animals pimped her out then killed her. I'm totally lost for words my heart goes out to her mothe.r
    I'm in shock there are a lot of set up chicks out there they set boys up to be jumped and killed and girls to be raped and kills. God help us all

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    This is a very sad and tragic story. Parents need to really start screening their children's friends. If the child comes from a dysfunctional home, don't let your child hang out with them. Also, young girls need to be taught not to be so naive. Jealousy in teenagers runs rampant and can escalate to friends leading you to rape and death.

  • OrchidJones-VIRGO in yo mouth!

    What is wrong with youth today!? I don't understand that. I'm about sick of Live Feeds and Going live and I hate these sites that are promoting it to stay with the times. Although Going Live recordings is now the key to a lot of mysteries and needed of proof of people acting a damn fool, I honestly believe its because of it people do the stupid things they do...committing suicide, killing other folks...turn up...fuk that, like who wants to see that shyt?! My heart goes out to this mother and family. I hope the mom gets the closure. and those jerks get all the se x they need behind bars!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Sadly, the instance of women setting up other women for rape and/or murder is not new. We just hear more about it through social media and blogs.

  • xenaD

    And not to mention... alotof these bitches become security guards and work in hotels and shit. Who's to say.........

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    And who the hell let's their 15 year old daughter go to a hotel party? No way. You're just not going.

  • Rayne

    Will do. ?

  • Ryan

    There's no way in hell I would've let them drive away!!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    "Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, if you have exceptionally good looking children you must teach them to be aware and protective in world that targets and harm beautiful people. This is not conceit, this is very real. We live in a world where good looks are a commodity and beauty is kidnapped, stolen and sold all over the world every day."

    THIS....I couldn't have said it any better. People who are aesthetically more pleasing to the eye need to be wary of others who are not as pretty. It's a sad fact that jealousy can lead to death. Cold, hard facts.

    My heart bleeds for ALL THE YOUTH of this here world. I have a 14 and a 24 year old.

    Today’s teen is bombarded with every temptation known to man, and the enemy is seeking to destroy their character. I pray that this generation of teens/young adults may experience an ongoing transformation by having their minds renewed and that they will be examples to the world in their speech, lives, love, faith and purity. I also ask for more great Christ-like role models for our children, particularly among their own peers. I pray God will give today’s teenager wisdom in choosing their friends and that God will bring people into their lives who will point them to Christ. I also pray that He will use their peers to encourage and build up each other like never before.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Not just hotel parties....they used to do stuff like this at regular house parties back in the day.

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Somebody going down for this madness here or shall I say a few people!!! You knowingly set this child up.. Drugged her, got her over drunk and took cash for strange men to run through this child... Lawd!! Then she winds up dead?!?! Ole girl filming is no longer employed at said hotel and is going to jail on multiple charges!!! These kids these days!!! #smh

    I seriously imagined a room full of people... popping pills, shooting up... drinking lots of cheap booze and f#cking! Underage girls prolly don't even get all the creases(in the shower) so the room prolly lit up af... its all just disgusting! I'm glad I was never invited...

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    This story hardened my spirit. The fact that The people were birthed and became such vile animals just makes me want to vomit. I am purely enraged at such heartless behavior. The senseless murder is unbearable, that poor child and knowing her mother is forever broken. I am not yet a mother but I have mothered my neices and nephew and I am a murderer for them. You're not dropping my childs car back without her and I am certainly going to skin you until you tell me where my baby is. after I am done with you, you can certainly go and meet your maker. That's all I have to say.

    This girl was 19. Even when I was 19, if I was home from college, I STILL couldn't come and go as I please. My mom's way of thinking was you pay no bills here; therefore, you're subject to a curfew. Can't be coming and going all hours of the night. And she had to KNOW (meaning they had to come in the house look her in the eye, have conversations, etc) who I was with.

    I hear you. Today there is no bond among young people and their friends. These are shallow times. I wouldn't have gone to a hotel party but I remember many getting home at 6am from hanging out with friends. Never in a million years did friends pay someone to rape you. Back then friends were the reason we all got home safe.

I don't trust most people. I can't tell anyone what to do, but I'm just not with the having friends thing. It is so horrific what happened to this young lady. How can a violent state like Illinois not have the death penalty??? I hope every piece of rodent feces involved gets life in prison with no parole. Sick pieces of shit. Ladies please be careful where you go, who you consider friends, and who you lay down with. BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND! Sick and evil world we live in.

    These kids are in gangs these days too. Or they take on a gang banger mentality. They think the philosophy MOE money over everything is cute and they mean it money over EVERYTHING.

I'd be a fool to leave him with anyone else that might hurt him, in that case, I'll be the one waiting for my trial!!!

  • Noirluv45

    I read this story earlier today. Sandra provided more details. I could not, for the life of me, understand how this poor young lady could be drunk, find the hotel kitchen (I know know it wasn't the kitchen), open the freezer door, close it, and kill herself. It didn't make sense. I'm also incensed at the dismissal the mother received. This was a senseless death, and I feel for the girl's family and mainly for her. I hope whomever did this is brought to justice swiftly and intensely.

    I Bless my Mah for all her discipline now... but before I was sure she was out to hermit me. I hated her for that. She stuck me with my sister at 16 and for the longest people thought this baby was MY baby but it was my mothers child...always baby sitting in the house. I asked her why years back and she advised me to keep me out of trouble. in hindsight I couldn't grasp it...until now I see how majority of my so-called friends ain't Shyt, Drunks, getting high, dead. I see now as a parent why...at that time all I wanted was to be a free girl. Do me. Not like this. Love my Mah!

    Real talk. My niece is gorgeous. Her looks are nothing that she flaunts, matter of fact she is very shy, however in HS girls wanted to fight her daily. Plus she has really long hair so that made her even more hated. WTF? These physical attributes were given to her by her DNA make up, nothing that she did. We now have a generation of souless demons who have no regard for human life, not even their own. Sads.

  • bhavana

    What about the father of your child? You can't trust him??!

  • XoXo

    What is wrong with youth today is parents aren't attending church in large numbers. Therefore, their children are not learning any Christian and character values. Hence, we have a lot of technology savvy youth that don't value anything except for their phones, and instant notoriety (they don't care if it's positive or negative). Really sad!

  • SG

    You can't really understand a lot of what they did and why until you are raising your own. God bless 'em!

    Thanks.

  • OrchidJones-VIRGO in yo mouth!

    Piggy backing off your remark...and kids do what parents do. If we are so engulfed in whatever it is that is taking our attention, then we allow our kids to be taught by outside entities. Although you don't want to shelter your kids, you don't want to give them too much freedom either, so it takes a skill to do this balancing act. no one says parenting is easy, but I KNOW where my kids are even at 25... I purge from social media now and again but I check on my boys to make sure I know what they are doing and who they are doing it with. People are crazy as we can see...and a covering prayer now and again on the hour helps! COVER YOUR CHILDREN people!

  • NicoleZee

    Hell naw! He walked away once I got pregnant. Blamed it all on me. I had fertility issues, didn't think a baby would ever happen. There was no way in hell I was going to abort a miracle baby, no way. Plus, he didn't want a child by a Black woman, he's Latino. My son only has me and my mom, that's all he needs, we both love him to pieces! Best thing that ever happened to me :)!

  • Kimberly King

    I can't even imagine how her mother is feeling right now. I'm not a mother, but things like this would literally make me go insane. However, I am a high school teacher and I see good kids get hooked up with troublesome people all the time. I really hope they throw the book at this Roberts trick. This story is so disturbing on so many levels.

  • Layah Jhene

    That's good. But anyone of them can cross you and set you up for murder. You can't put nothing pass anyone.

  • Missy

    Im an only child & had my 1st & only 1 @ 38 so u can imagine the bond b/w my son & my mom. When my mom leaves the room he cries but when i leave i get the deuces. I be like chiiiile...i get kinda jelly but wuldnt trade it 4 nothing.

  • Layah Jhene

    It's been reported the girl in the video Monifah killed herself. The guilt was too much.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Dam baby girl RIP and those POS's who raped and watched I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent. Friend or foe you just never know.

    I pray the mother and family can find some peace Lord.

  • Look@m3

    Nope....the dummies froze the DNA. Smh

  • Layah Jhene

    THIS! THIS! THIS! None of these parents screening these kids no more and be letting their daughter go with anybody, anywhere at anytime. I can't go to bed unless I know where my kids are and if they are safe. I screen all my kids associates because none of them are worthy to be called true friends so easily. I teach them to stay sober and watch their surroundings at all times.

  • Layah Jhene

    Then go read the screenshots and text messages of what went down by the people who were there. It's all on Facebook and YouTube.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Did this happen in the bathroom or on the bed?

  • Look@m3

    The only thing off on this article is that Irene isn't Kenneka BF. Some girl name Monifa is. Monifa know Irene (alleged host of party). I didn't hear help me in video but if this girl was rapped and thrown in a freezer the dummy that did it froze all the evidence so I'm anxiously waiting for this autopsy report!

  • millz

    Omg! I have 14 year old twin boys and daily my patience is tested. However I make sure my delivery is good when speaking, disciplining, and giving orders because I am thankful for our current state of the relationship. I no longer work late hours and my schedule is always unpredictable so they never know if I'm home or when I will be... keeps them on their toes. I limit television and internet as much as I can. I'm not naive knowing when there's a will there's a way but I am definitely trying to watch the good seeds I've planted to grow into something great! This story is heartbreaking but definitely a reminder to love on your kids. Teach them good morals and what is right. Build up positive characteristics. I surely didn't appreciate my dad and his strict ways growing up but I certainly appreciate them now as an adult when I see so many lost and hurt people daily.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Heartless. Watch who you call your friends. My condolences to her family. I hope charges are filed soon and the mom needs to sue, sue, sue.

  • Yup, I said it

    All those devils need to be set on fire to be closer with their father ,Satan. We need to teach kids to avoid angry , unscupulous people. If they have no ability to empathize and are jealous, towards other eventually they will turn on you because they are loyal to Satan.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Word is bond. I ain't got time to run, my spirit will be calm and I'ma tell them right where the fools at. Gonna make time to beat my face and style my hair and put on my my best dressed. I am going to be slap happy that i've taken care of their as ses.

  • KarmaBackAround

    This made me fall into a prayer break..Lord God please protect n shield our children from those who cause them harm..this is awful!

    False report....

    She either died in a fall or choked on her own vomit.

  • Judas & GOD

    Young and stupid.. I dont believed she got her friend kill. I dont believe that this Yong women got rape but what I do believe is something went wrong that night . before we judge let's wait for the opthopsy results.

    ...or she tried to fight back and one of her rapists killed her. I, too, believe she was dead when they put her in that freezer.

  • Layah Jhene

    I believe you. People set you up for blood sacrificing and get your organs missing. I bet money this girl organs are gone.

  • Layah Jhene

    Oh ok thanks

  • Tay Gee

    I have watched and re-watched the video several times now. If it wasn't for the comment section on the video I probably wouldn't have even knew something was "allegedly" happening in the video. I def think there was some foul play and that someone certainly put her in the freezer.

    Not sure if the $200 theory really holds up or that she was being raped during the actual video, but something did happen that lead to her death that night. I just don't imagine a room full of people (guys and girls) would be watching someone getting raped and just be acting normal the entire time. Someone would break character at some point don't you think?

    Maybe she was put in the freezer while she was still alive as some twisted joke that went too far. I'm sure we will get the real story eventually, but I don't think that video tells the full story.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    "I just don't imagine a room full of people (guys and girls) would be watching someone getting raped and just be acting normal the entire time."

    Several years ago, a young woman's throat was slashed on a crowded south side Chicago train. As the girl bled to death, other passengers filmed her and not one of them tried to help her.

    Welcome to Chiraq!

  • Tay Gee

    That sounds like a train full of strangers though. We are in the age of social media, so people will take a picture or record something long before they offer help or even call the police, smh. I would think if some of the people in the room are her "friends" or people she was at least acquainted with, that they wouldn't be acting so normal the entire video. And if they were that lowdown, I would think they would have turned the camera towards the "alleged" rape and murder.

    I'm not saying it's not possible, I just don't see that as being the case.

  • nick c

    So many places just have cameras for looks, others are so old and grainy you can't identify anything.

  • nick c

    Her deceased body will tell the story. They will be able to tell how drunk she was and if any other drugs were in her system. They will also be able to tell how recently she had sex, any defense or offense marks on her body was clothing on her body wrong like underwear backwards etc. If she was .16 or higher and had sex that clearly is a sign she was raped. I hate to say it but if it was white girl they be sweating these fools, threatening to send them to the chamber if they didn't talk turn them against each other etc they be singing like a bird.

  • EMILY POST

    Before I read the story I looked at the photos and knew the little lady was in trouble.
    I can no longer tell if it's normal clothes or she was into other stuff.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    It's also possible that if she is passed out drunk she wouldn't be able to say "help" anyway

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    This remind of a murder back in the 90's. Two "best friends" murdered a teenager because they were jealous. One of the best moves into the family's house afterwards. They made a movie about, Patti Duke played the mother

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I'm not being flippant, but when was the last time you visited Chicago? The level of depravity and violence here is mind blowing. That young lady was in a room full of predators, disguised as friends. What happened to her isn't an anomaly.

  • Anunnaki

    They will be like what u in for. Oh I just fcked my now deceased daughter friends up. Well they dead too. "U gone eat that apple."

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    This story is tragic....heartbreaking!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    We also had parents that cared and weren't concerned with being our "friends."

  • friendofblog

    Dayum. With friends like that...

  • the guest

    AMEN!!!!

  • Tay Gee

    Well, I have never been to Chicago before, so I have no idea. Guess I just want to not think the worst case scenario. Like the worst part is that she died, but adding in rape, money paid and everyone watching her be killed is a whole different level.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    You already know! Your comment made me chuckThe more I see this beautiful girls face the more angry i get. People like these animals do not reserve the right to snuff out her life. The pain I feel for her mother is immeasurable.

  • KcoolMuziq

    One thing I've learned is if someone is jealous of U. It's NOTHING U can do about it.

    They will ALWAYS be jealous of U!

  • the guest

    The rapists killed her and her and so called friend who worked at the hotel and set her up guided them to the basement's abandoned freezer to dispose of the body.
    The victim's so called friend who sold her to be raped conveniently worked at the hotel so she had something to do with the cameras being disabled in the basement.
    Definitely there was inside help in this crime from a co worker with knowledge of the camera's at the hotel.
    They never expected her body to be found so soon.
    They thought they threw the victim's mother off course by returning the car and phone.
    They never expected her mother to be diligent with the hotel and police to find her child.

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!

  • the guest

    Protect her. Keep her safe. Usually exceptionally beautiful young people are humble, unassuming, and want acceptance because they have been isolated by jealousy. They are not typically conceited. It's usually not so good looking young people who cover up their insecurities with conceit and false pride.

  • the guest

    Somebody on duty in that hotel helped their off duty rape set upper co worker disable those cameras and dispose of the body in the basement. This was a murder cover up.

  • Look@m3

    Now one of the girls was trying to commit suicide live on fb and the cops arrested her live.......smh

  • Ayblin Rivas

    I read that Monifah Shelton hung herself... Can anyone confirm that?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It's sad this young girl lost her life, but this is what happens when you get involved with degenerates. Maybe she was a degenerate, too. It's possible she was just as grimy as her "friends." Regardless, I am sure there were plenty of red flags along the way. Some people ignore the smoke alarm and wait for the fire.

  • TooMuchTea

    I read It didn't happen in the room in front of everyone. Her "friend" lead her out with the guy and left her. You can hear her say "help me" which is prob when they went out of the room.

  • TooMuchTea

    Thank you!! Clearly the friend knew how to get to the freezer since SHE worked there AND had the cameras turned off.

  • Nala Shakur

    And it looks like the last girl threw them devil horns up lowkey

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It's being said, that she was raped and strangled in the bathroom. Afterward, the female who worked at the hotel, directed the killer or killers to the hotel freezer.

    Tay, in Chicago, people are set up and murdered, all the time. You can't trust anyone in this city, not even the people that claim to be your friends. Everyone has an angle or motive for getting close to you. That sounds like paranoia, but it's the sad reality of living in a big city with high crime rates.

  • Nala Shakur

    Its organ harvesting season as well as ritual killings

  • Tay Gee

    I heard her say that also, but then a few mins later people were saying that was her that said "I'm not drunk and I am having a good time". That wouldn't make much sense for her to say that after she left the room, right?

  • Tay Gee

    I still don't see how people are getting that from the video footage. That series of events doesn't seem to make sense... The moment when she apparently says "help" comes before her friend tells her to have a good time, which makes no sense. One would assume she would already be dead by the point and or have already been raped.

  • NicoleZee

    That is so sweet! My mom and baby are very close too. She got to bond with him first after he was born because I was strapped down on the operating table. I almost lost my life and she was there to care for him along with the nursing staff. Nine months later I had a near fatal car accident and she took care of him again. Thankfully he was with her when I crashed. I am so thankful he has her. Children need their grandparents!!!!!

  • Kmove

  • Tena

    Wow, which one was this? Where is the bitch with the glasses?

    Amen, my heart breaks for this child and her family. I have an 11 year old daughter so I am very protective of her.

    It's just me and my husband. We don't trust anyone with our kids, not even our relatives. They are too shady, broke, and love drama.

  • TooMuchTea

  • Shaun Haynes

    So this freezer was in the basement. They are expecting us to believe, she was so drunk she rode the elevators or took the stairs all the way down there? Please. Lock these fools up and throw away the key.

  • Missy

    O wow...so glad ur Mom was there for you & your baby. I have no idea what I would do w/o mine...I thank God for her daily??

  • Jussjess25

    And sadly the freezer will preserve the evidence. Rip so sad

  • Jussjess25

    You know what u so right.. thats why I refuse to become an organ donor on my license . Shit crazy out here

  • Jussjess25

    Yea perhaps she chose to leave with the guy, maybe it was someone she liked or was dealing with. Maybe she told her friend it was cool.

  • Ms Thang

    I promise I'm not trying to be an azzhole. I'm just the type of person that ask questions about things that I don't understand. My cousins brother on her mom side was murdered last year and she was truly convinced that it was some type of conspiracy going on. She got really mad at me when I bought up the fact that her brother was robbing dope boys and they finally caught up with him or was it a family member of the 16 year old girl that he got pregnant. He's been breaking into houses since he was 13 or 14 years old

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Sandra, why did you redact the alleged rapists names? That's some sucker shyt

  • AA

    Yall are saying how can people sit there in the room and let this happen. In the beginning of the video, mirror glasses girls lips are clearly quivering. Later in the video, she turns her head 90 degrees from the camera and you can see behind her shades. Her eye makeup is smeared and you can see some streak marks down her cheeks. She was probably just happy it wasn't happening to her.

  • Shanese

    My mom wouldn't let me go anywhere without giving her names and numbers of people I was going to meet and the address and time. Back then I used to think she was being a lil extra but I realize it's to prevent things like this. She also wouldn't allow me to be out late as in if I'm not home by 5pm, the calls about where I am start coming in late. This is just sad she was clearly set up. My heart just breaks for the mother

  • Look@m3

    Yeah i meant to remove. .fell asleep...eek

  • the guest

    I agree but I believe even degenerates should not be sold for rape, murdered and stuffed in a freezer. If the victim and the false friends were all grimy then let them all be grimy together in an orgy or whatever. But they weren't grimy together, they were grimy against an innocent trusting friend who they had to drug to sedate and take advantage of. This story is so tragic and another exmple of why people should not hang with people beneath them. The victim's energy and aura are clearly more wholesome than her false friends who look evil.

  • Davia

    Sandra you lost credibility with this article. I have been a long time reader of your site and this is all speculation and hear say. And to think that you posted names of kids as rapists is disgusting. Normally your stories have more substance and facts and at this point you just appear desperate for a story.

  • Nala Shakur

    Yes nala, Ive been told that of God forbid your in a tragic accident they wont try that hard to save you, because your organs are worth more. Smh

  • 407G4L229

    Why did the young lady in the black shirt/jacket (Maybe that's Monifa?), make the comment that her face was in the camera then put her hand over the camera?!? It seems as though something sinister and criminal was going on.... That doesn't appear to be a turn up, seems more like some sort of sex trafficking event. Are they pimps? That just doesn't seem like an party atmosphere where people intent are to have fun....
