Kenneka Jenkins

Police investigators are reviewing a viral Facebook video for clues into the mysterious death of 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins at a Rosemont hotel on Sunday.

Investigators are reviewing a Facebook video of a party Jenkins attended at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center late Friday night.

Police say Jenkins was drunk when she staggered into a walk-in freezer in the basement of the hotel early Saturday morning.

Police are sticking with the theory that Jenkins walked into the freezer and died. But her mother, Teresa Martin, suspects foul play.

Martin said she last saw her daughter around 11:30 p.m. Friday when Jenkins left their West Side home to go bowling. Martin handed her responsible daughter the keys to her car.

The car was returned the next day by Jenkins’ best friend Monifah Shelton, who told Martin she didn’t know where Jenkins was.

Martin and family members repeatedly contacted the hotel and police after Jenkins went missing on Saturday.

Jenkins’s body was discovered inside the freezer nearly 24 hours after she was reported missing.

Martin said Jenkins was too drunk to open the heavy freezer doors by herself.

    This is so sad! I hope this family finds the truth

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    That “supposed/so called” “best friend” Irene ain’t nothing cute either… Jealousy is a hell of a motive for some females… #IJS..

  • imright

    sad,scary situation. i dont understand why the hotel wont release the surveillance cam footage.

  • Shenanigans1

    She was drugged, binge drank, raped then went all the way to the basement where she let herself into a freezer and froze to death and police want her family to believe there was no foul play. Please. If she was that drunk….around the front desk…why didn’t any staff stop her? And also if she was that drunk, why would her “friends” let her out of that room or even stopped what they were doing when they noticed she was gone? This story has so many holes.

  • Shenanigans1

    You better believe it!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Why are these “government soldiers” dragging their feet on getting an autopsy?

    I refuse to call these trained killers police. Police protect and serve. Police have a duty to serve justice. That isn’t the case nowadays.

    An autopsy will reveal what was in her system and if she was raped. Come on now.

  • Bonsai

    You have to be your own police and detective. I wouldn’t take at face value anything this precinct has to say.

  • Bonsai

    This is the same precinct that was unable to spot Kenneka the first time on surveillance and had to watch it a second time at the persistence of the mother. If it was that difficult to spot someone on camera, then they should have sat down and watched it the first time with the mother. Time is precious! Every second counts! That girl could have been alive if it wasn’t for police department and how they went about handling things. The mother did everything that the police should have done! Why the mother knocking on door to door in the hotel for? The police should have done that!

  • Bonsai

    How the hell the girl end up all the way from the 9th freaking floor to the basement? Someone put her there.

  • Yardgirl

    Come on now. If the story does not make sense it’s usually not true and this one for damn sure does not make sense!!

  • Ebony Starr

    I doubt that they will stop until they get the truth! This is sad on so many levels.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    This is what I’ve been hearing: That allegedly that hotel was being investigated for having body parts in the freezer back in 2003. Allegedly the owner is apart of the cremation business. I don’t know how true this is. But if it is, it all makes sense. ?

  • OvertheMississippi

    Very odd that “friends” would return car and phone if they actually knew that she was dead. Why not just leave belongings behind to add to the mysterical disappearance?

  • Bonsai

    The teachings have to change when it comes to our children. I watched that video of the so called friends and they where pure getto GUTTER. You don’t hang out with, socialize, nor talk to gutter people. When you look at pictures of Kenneka and you look at her eyes the girl looked so precious compared to the other fuglies she was hanging around with.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sad story. I didn’t know that you could just walk into a hotel’s kitchen. The hotel didn’t have cameras?

    Peace and prayers for the family.

  • Reina1718

    When u look at her facebook live videos she was just like her friends, with those dame friends getting drunk, hanging late….doesnt change the fact that this should have NEVER have happened to a young girl! This story is so sad either way

  • Bonsai

    I saw the video and it was sad and disgusting. Nothing happened by chance it the video. That so called “friend” showed a glimpse of Kenneka passed out on the bed. That was her showing the men how she looked like. That didn’t happen by chance. That was her purposely showing the men how Kenneka looked like in the bed passed out. Then this “friend” told whoever over the phone the room number 926 or something like that. Than when Kenneka was being violating in the bed this so called “friend” turned up the volumn of the music to drown out what Kenneka was saying.This “friend” was pure GUTTER. What in the world was Kenneka doing hanging around them folks?!?!

  • Pamela

    Nothing good ever happens when teenagers hold parties at a hotel/motel. Sad.

  • Look@m3

    The way these teenagers talk now a days I don’t know how an investigator can sift through that and figure out what the heck they saying…smh

  • Karen Brady

    I’m officially old I guess? My homegirl tried to get me to come out my house, actually my BED, to go to her bowling party at 11 PM a few weeks ago. I looked at the text and rolled my ass over. This young lady left out at 11:30.

  • Karen Brady

    Lol. .true

  • Karen Brady

    Exactly and conveniently into a freezer..

  • Karen Brady

    more than some I’d say

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    “this is why it is so important to choose your friends wisely. Because not a single one of my friends, not even at that age, would have left that hotel without me.”
    _____________________________________________________
    EXACTLY!!! This is why we have to teach our children how to make friend OUTSIDE of social media!
    I hate this happened, but I can’t see letting my teen LEAVE for a hotel party at 11:30pm either. A little parental judgement lapse in my opinion as well

  • sunni_daze

    And as a young adult that’s usually when you leave for a party about 11 or 11:30.

  • You Could Never

    This is utter and complete bs. This girl did not get into the freezer dolo. Im still rooting for the mother to own her very own Crowne Plaza. If no one else was at fault, the hotel was. You are allowing folks to randomly wander around. Seen her drunk. On tape AND she passed the front desk so an eyewitness. Yall aint have no security? Yall got a whole 4 ass stars over on Hotel.com.

  • Karen Brady

    Oh absolutely

  • Karen Brady

    Ummm have the RAPISTS BEEN ARRESTED??

  • Karen Brady

    She surely didn’t get there alone. Watch hotel claim no fault or liability as she was not a registered guest.

  • Rachel

    Sad but true. They were all about “dat life”. My heart goes out to her mom, no mother wants to bury their child.

  • You Could Never

    Correct. Which pisses me off.

  • Guess Who

    I’m completely confused and disturbed. By the circumstances and this broad, Irene’s post. I don’t understand slavespeak so if anyone understood that hodge podge of WTF, please decipher.

    So who are these folks and if all this is coming out, why are the police convinced it was not foul play? I saw a video on my fb timeline showing some girl on camera crying, the police coming in and arresting her and they said she had something to do with this Kenneka girl. What’s going on here?

  • You Could Never

    Actually had this convo with my 22 yo. constantly leaves around this time. I done told her behind Im locking the door at 10. Nobody in OR OUT this bish after that.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Um nah this is foul play. I’ve been drunk off my azz an there is no way a small person like Kenneka could pull that freezer with both hands. And on top of that the freezer was turned off the kitchen employee admitted that so who turned the freezer all the way down then??? I think that this girl was drunk and her “bestie” went to go hookup with a boy and left her to those wolf azz niccas. She fought back got strangled then somebody panicked and put her in the freezer. Where is the FBI???

  • Cricket404

    Bowling alleys are like the club, like skating rinks used to be in the 90’s. The ones here in Atlanta close at 2:30. She’s 19, can’t get in a club.

  • Ghost

    Yes…Mama ain’t playing. She has been on the news EVERY night since it happened. The friends know a whole lot more then they’re saying…and I smell a law suit coming…$$$ bring out the truth!

  • Karen Brady

    LMAO… wait you sayin you’re locking that child in? LOL… Look, it’s YOUR house and you set the rules.. I hear you! My mother used to put the chain on the door every night at 11..my older sister used to beg me to keep an ear out to let her in.

  • Look@m3

    That was a separate situation. Apparently that girl was in Ohio.

  • Karen Brady

    Okay.. I was sure trying to get out of going thinking the place closed at midnight. I’m in Atl too. See I don’t club anymore so didn’t even know you had to be over 19.. what is it 21 cuz of alcohol? That makes sense.

  • Guess Who

    Lawd…then the title was wrong. Thank you!

  • Cricket404

    My stepdaughters are 19&20 yo college students. When they come home on break they barely stay home. I wasn’t raised this way. My husband never knows where they are. When I inquire, I’m the evil step mother meddling. Smh. One is staying with her boyfriend, my father would have disowned me.

  • Look@m3

    Its unfortunate but if you ever noticed when its really late like that (2am) there are barely any hotel employees to be found. So there is a chance that no one saw her go back there but I still don’t believe that girl went from the 9th floor, to the hotel lobby then to and area totally separate from the hotel from what I read and ended up in a freezer. That I don’t believe she wandered off and did that. I have a family full of FRFR drinkers and I have yet to see them end up in odd places like that. I read an article that said that the area she was found was in a totally separate area. I cant wait to see how this is mapped out.

  • Guess Who

    Good! I hope she finds out everything. It may be painful to know but it’s more excruciating when you know what you been told is a lie and a cover up.

  • Look@m3

    ESPECIALLY in ATL. They cut them lights out and you see NATHING! Anything can go down with them cosmo lights. Its pretty much a bowling club.I don’t club either I fail to do research and went to this girls bday party and found myself at a fing club I aint never been so darn mad at myself. I said never again…if you aint sitting at a restaurant or spa I cant celebrate your bday!

  • Karen Brady

    Slavespeak? *DEAD*. Laid out. Gone. ROTFLMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Shamari123

    “He didn’t seem concerned about the circumstances of Kenneka’s death.”
    Well because she is not white, that’s why he wasn’t concerned. Had she been white, they would have had a whole search team ready to go look for her the second the family filed a missing person report. Such tragedy. The system is so twisted and unjust.

  • Look@m3

    Lord I remember I invited a friend to tailgate (held by coworkers) and she got messed up and left with a stranger I was literally pulling her damn arm out the car window. She jumped in his car and left I stood there crying like wtf!!! I left because I didn’t want coworkers all in my business…… I feel horrible and I should have done more like called 911. I regret that I didn’t but she was ok but I was so freaking mad with her! Still cant even believe that happened…

  • Guess Who

    Apparently she needs to look like Natalie Holloway or Laci Peterson to get any FBI attention, IJS.

  • Cricket404

    I had friends like this in high school. They’d pimp me out to boys because they wanted them but knew they weren’t the guys type. They’d tell boys that I liked them but was too shy, to give me liquor so I could relax. They’d tell me that the boy had a crush on me. I was almost raped 3 times at house parties that they’d orchestrate just to get me drunk for these boys. Hurt girls hurt girls. I found out 30 years later, those girls were sexually abused by stepfathers, cousins and uncles. They were damaged and wanted me to be damaged with them. Now, 2 are gay and one is dead. Damn.

  • Look@m3

    Yeah and I dare hotel guest complain to the front desk about a missing child and cause them to get kicked out. SMH this world so fucked. I would have probably helped….like give me a picture of the girl!

  • Look@m3

    Wow. That’s deep!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The Chicago FBI needs to be involved. At this point the CPD is stonewalling the investigation because they dont want to look incompetent….

  • Look@m3

    Yeah I fell for it too….Then I was like why would some one even start this rumor..people crazy.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    They figured it’s a black teen who lied to her mom about where she was going and was drinking underage they shrugged it off and now they trying to act like they don’t suspect foul play so they don’t get sued at how they handled this case!!

  • Karen Brady

    Thank God you weren’t.

  • Karen Brady

    BINGO

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Prayers to you thanks for your story

  • Wreckognize Game

    I think Chicago stays open all night like NOLA so leaving the house at 11 or 12 midnight might not be out of the ordinary there. Back in the day, we would leave at 11 and make our rounds picking our crew up. We would leave the club when the sun came up and be at Shoney’s to eat the breakfast bar.

    When I was living in the Midwest and my friend said I’ll pick you up at 8, I was like wtf? We have to leave at 8?? I couldn’t get jiggy with that (in my Michael Blackson voice)

  • You Could Never

    any hotel employees

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Hotels I have been to it may not have been hotel employees but 3rd party security. I used to be a smoker once upon a time. Go out and smoke late and who do you see? Hotel Top Flight Security of The World. And at a hotel not too long ago I was at for an out of town wedding we went out partying and all got back in late…same thing. So employees maybe not. But there is and should be security floating around.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I know some grown women that hat do mess like this I hadn’t an associate at one point I thought she was friend she invited me to her home because I was in town visiting she said it was just going to be me and her and another woman there to have cocktails and laughs when I got there there was men there too! So I didn’t even drink that night I poured cups of juice pretending liquor was it about a week or two later she invited me back I get there the same men there one of the guys started talking to me we later ended up dating he told me shortly after that ol girl told him and his boys to come me through and they could have their pick of her “friends” when she found out we were dating she tried to hook him up with another woman but she failed her and I no longer speak

  • xenaD

    Omg… what did my parents do to me? I’ve been to one ass club my whole life!! O seeNa. I’m going to the clubs this weekend ??

  • JV

    According to the Washington Post, the autopsy was inconclusive. They are not releasing the results, and it will take several weeks for the toxicology report to come in. They’re not saying no foul play occurred, they are saying they are still investigating. Give it a few weeks and let’s revisit.

  • monique

    For this to be her birthday, she doesn’t seem happy or excited. She had something planned for her friend and it was already worrying her. What is she doing with her mouth? Her entire being in this video just seems heavy, demonic.

  • Renee26

    Very disturbing…If this was little Becky the police would have looked at all of the tapes to see who accessed that area, they’d be pulling DNA evidence off her defrosted body and rushing evidence to the FBI, they’d be dusting the freezer for fingerprints and reenacting the crime to prove that she wasn’t strong enough to enter the freezer in an incapacitated state. Black families rarely receive justice. Sickening

  • You Could Never

    Im an extra sensitve sleeper. I wake up at the sound of ANYTHING. You wont be waking me up by leaving all times of the night. And you get to come back in ONE time. She used to do that rude mess too. #Icanna

    The Chicago FBI handles all 18 boroughs in the area…I know that and i dont even live there…

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Sandrarose: usually your fact spinning and reframing of headlines is tolerated for the BS celebrity gossip, however, a life was lost and you twisting the facts to garner comments is pathetic. The police never said they were not “convinced” more than they don’t have all the facts to make a determination at this point of the investigation. There is no need to make this story seem worse, the facts as they stand are horrible enough.

  • Renee26

    Sorry you had to go through that and know that you are not alone. I never had any girls try to set me up but I had to fight off boys and stop myself from being raped as early as 13 years old, the boys were extremely aggressive and their intentions were clear. When I was in high school a so called boyfriend raped me. He held me down face down on the bed and I couldn’t fight him off. When I realized he wasn’t going to stop and didn’t care about my protest I begged him to just use a condom. To him that justified his claims that I gave consent and he didn’t think what he did was wrong… even though I was crying the whole time (side eye). See I was always taught to tell a rapist to use a condom was the right thing to do with AIDS being in the forefront back then. I never thought it would be used against me.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    This really touch my heart to the core. This beautiful young lady didn’t even have a chance at life. This is something that has plagued Chicago for quite some time. As a part-time resident of Chicago you see this as well as other crimes on the news DAILY. I really hope she gets the justice she deserves. Her family needs answers. Chicago needs a revamp like NYC in the 90’s. Just a FYI Chicago is a very racist and segregated city.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Autopsy inconclusive = we don’t know how she died (which is sad because I want i this girls mother to have some answers)

  • Renee26

    Me too…running through the halls yelling MISSING CHILD!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    People are too shady for me. I pray daily and ask GOD to remove anyone who don’t mean me well , to remove them from my life. Glad you were wise enough to peep game.

    I live in Chicago and its all anyone can talk about. If you want to know the real story instead of a twisted version click the links below.

    Police are examining videos that were posted to social media in the hours leading up to the disappearance and death of a Near West Side woman in a hotel in Rosemont. Early Sunday, Jenkins was found dead in a walk-in freezer in a vacant part of the hotel, authorities said. Her cause of death was not determined Sunday, pending further studies, and her death was considered noncriminal Monday evening, according to a Rosemont town spokesman.

    Early Sunday, Jenkins was found dead in a walk-in freezer in a vacant part of the hotel, authorities said. Her cause of death was not determined Sunday, pending further studies, and her death was considered noncriminal Monday evening, according to a Rosemont town spokesman.

    Speaking to reporters after Jenkins was found, her mother, Tereasa Martin, said she felt: “Hurt. Pain. Suffering.”

    Jenkins left her home at 11:30 p.m. Friday to go to a party in a room of the hotel, according to Rosemont Police. Jenkins’s sister last heard from her via text message about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

    About 4 a.m., Jenkins’ friends called her mother to tell her they could not find Jenkins, according to community activist Andrew Holmes. An hour later, Martin was at the hotel. She filled out a police report and Jenkins’ sister reported her missing.

    Jenkins was last seen at a party on the ninth floor of the hotel in the early hours of Saturday, police said. She was reported missing at 1:16 that afternoon. Police told Martin that surveillance footage showed Jenkins inebriated near the front desk, according to Holmes.

    Hotel staff and management searched the hotel and discovered Jenkins inside a freezer at 12:24 a.m. Sunday, police said. Holmes said Martin was told by police that Jenkins, while drunk, let herself into the freezer and died inside.
    Gary Mack, a spokesman for Rosemont, said that some people in the video have been identified, though investigators “continue to work on the identities” of others seen.

    “[Investigators] have been looking at the video from the very time they became aware of it,” Mack said. “They’re looking at everything they have.”

    Holmes said Martin believes her daughter was the victim of “foul play.”

    “She wants all of those people that were inside that room to come forward and talk to detectives and clear their name,” Holmes said. “Someone in that room knew what happened.”

    Martin was told by police that Jenkins was seen on surveillance video near the hotel’s front desk, intoxicated to the point that she needed to lean against the wall.

    If she was that drunk, her mother reasons, Jenkins would not have been able to open the freezer’s thick and heavy doors.

    “It takes strength to open these doors,” Martin told reporters Monday. “So if she could barely hold herself up — she needed the wall to support her — how did she find strength to unlock both the double doors?”

    It remained unclear Monday night how and by whom Jenkins was found in the freezer.

    “That’s the million-dollar question,” Holmes said. “Who led them to the freezer and how did they know she was in the freezer?”

    Mack declined to say what led police to finding Jenkins’ body, citing the ongoing investigation.

    In the meantime, social media has been flooded with theories as to how Jenkins may have died.

  • Unknown User

    You cant. You need an often changed code to get down into the basement. She may not of put her in the freezer but unlocked the basement (since it was said one of them worked there?) and may have left her there to wake up and not remember what happened. The people who work in the basement (dont want to say the majority type of person who works the basement jobs) may have raped her again and put her in the freezer. Thats one of my theory’s but we will see what happened. I dont delieve she died in that room, and its kind of hard to believe they would turn the freezer up if the people in the room put her in there. I believe someone else got a hold of her in between the basement to the freezer

  • Look@m3

    I haven’t seen any. Maybe it depends on the hotel. Maybe the ones I’m thinking of were in smaller cities. I stayed in Westin here in ATL recently I saw more people then. It seem like people were just checking in late but when I stayed in Jeckyl Island, I couldn’t find anyone at the front desk late. They were like in the back and you literally had to scream to get their attention so maybe it depends on where you are and hotel chain…

  • Look@m3

    NO!! It aint worth it. It takes at lease a week for that smoke to get out your clothes and hair. Then the feeling of being up late just standing up on a wall unless you backing it up on some random.

  • Renee26

    Right! Those yamps that worked there are involved, either they showed the boys where to carry her body or they walked her down there themselves.

  • Renee26

    When I was younger we would start the turn up around 10 and not leave the house before midnight…and our clubs close at 3am LOL if it was a club that had long lines we might leave earlier, but that was a strong might

  • freelancepimp .

    We still got to wait for the investigation to complete (and trust me unlesse someone’s uncle is the chief these cops are not about to cover up anything for the black people involved) but some of yall just hate to be wrong. Right or wrong it’s just the internet and yall @sses still ain’t going to get a prize. This whole thing has just turned into a bunch of gossip for people who don’t know shyte. ‘Rape and her friend friend setting her up cause she ugly and jealous,’ and “I could hear her getting raped in the background,” and “they raped her and sacrificed her,” ‘ILLUMINATI!!!” All of that could very well be the case or it could just be a bunch of underage kids hanging out smoking and drinking and they did something stupid but not as vile ass rape and a coverup murder, and kid died as a result of their foolish behavior.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Right like even if she went in there on her own by the time she starts getting super cold she couldn’t get out? Or are they saying she went in there passed out and never woke up? I just can’t we so my brain around that part but police often leave out details and put fake info out so the killer or killers slip up I’m hoping this is the case if not if she truly went in there on her own and died that’s just so sad and tragic this whole thing is either way though

  • Renee26

    Yes and black victims are less likely to report it… some don’t want the black males to get in trouble…some lack communal and familial support…some just don’t have the self worth to realize that their bodies are not just tools

    I already know…I think it’s so important for parents to talk to their daughters about rape and date rape. Mine never did

  • MookieFly

    Ive been trying to catch up on this story. Apparently her friends sold her for money to some guys who raped her and possibly killed her. In the video of the girl with sunglasses, audio was picked up that another person stated someone was being raped in another room. This all seems so clear, but the right kind people are not on the case. I feel like this was a setup. There has been a rise of backstabbing best friends. Keep your eyes peeled

  • fRAktal Reality

    The timelines are confusing to me. If 19 yr old, Kenneka, left her residence at 11:30pm on Friday, but her dead body was discovered in a freezer at 12:24am Saturday, who was the individual texting back and forth with Harris using Kenneka’s phone at 1:30am Saturday? Base on the reported timelines, it appears Jenkins lived close to the hotel and events occurred rather quickly after she arrived.

    May forces liquidate all deceptions in this case so that any and all parties who contributed to this young woman’s death and caused distress to the mother and her family be held accountable and receive full retribution for their actions and inaction. So let it be written, so let it be done. Ase!

    Yep bloop and even send the address or landmarks . Me and my homie just was talking bout this

  • Ryan

    If this had been some average Becky Nancy Grace would’ve come outta retirement and the cops would at least pretend to care. I hope her family keeps up the fight and they jail those nasty chickenheads and the dusty MFs who raped her.

  • Karen Brady

    I hear you!! Us two but I was always the damn sleepyhead (yes even in my younger day).. half the time they’d have to leave out without me :-(. I’d have to hear about the rest of the turn up the next afternoon. lol.

  • Karen Brady

    LOLLL.. 8pm was like saying noon right? Chile…

  • Karen Brady

    Go on and get your club on and make up for lost time 🙂

  • Karen Brady

    THIS!!!!!!!! It better be a nice resturant, lounge, sips & strokes.. somethin.. That’s why I knew I wasn’t going to same damn bowling alley for her hubby’s birthday all late (in my mind) and whatnot. No sireee lol.

  • xenaD

    LoL… I really should! 1 good time.

  • Karen Brady

    comin and going like it’s the motel my mama used to say. WELP.

  • Bonsai

    Wow, that’s crazy. These people are squalid. I listened to the audio and that guy is straight gutter. All these people are gutter.

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    if she was too drunk to let herself out that means she was too drunk to let herself in! ijs

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Waiting on the autopsy report.

  • Capricornlady

    If this was little “Kaitlyn” they would show more concern than they are for little Kenneka.. smh

  • Ms Thang
  • Ms Thang

    Just sick

  • SweetTEE

    Me & my 2 besties live in different states & still send pics, photos of license plates, social media names & job info bc these people are crazy out here. You wont hurt mine and get away easy.

  • Ms Thang

    Someone up top shared this guys Facebook video. He’s an audio engineer and he enhanced parts of the video and you could clearly hear one of the girls say “they stupid, they in there rapping her” and the girl with the glasses said “I told you”.

  • SweetTEE

    Fck all that. Momma need to put some money on somebody head & hire an investigator. I would of already kidnapped on of those little demonic broads & sliced their ass til they told me wtf happened to my baby. She suffered & so would they & I wouldtell the police i did it sit my tail right in jail. They know something

  • KLo

    What? Did you finish school? #smdh

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I hate ghetto bums and birds. This is why I judge people. I judge wedlock kids, hood kids and so forth. Whoever birth these bums and birds should be in disgust.

  • Tupacca Amira Shakur

    The sound engineer guy debunked that theory when he isolated the background. They were still in the room when ” Monifah” said ” They stupid, they’re in there raping her” and Irene replies, ” I told YALL”.

    I think the ghetto girl with the red weave video is gone viral and everyone is sharing it and the sound engineer debunked her theory.

    Regardless what happened they all knew what was going down. ???????????????

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Kenneka didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes and her name was not Becky or Amber. She didn’t reside in the exclusive burbs of Winnetka or Glencoe. She was Black and is of no importance to the police. Therefore the police are not convinced that her death resulted in foul play. Because the authorities just don’t care that another Black life was lost. Is anyone surprised??

  • Ryan

    Sad but true.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    For the right price, NAACP and the likes will get involved.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah the lil dummies trying to put spins on the story. I hate they think they’re so smart. All them hoes butt ugly, except Kenneka. How ironic.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I hope ?? we find out more. RIP young lady.

  • dontgetblocked

    Bowling? That child was out getting drunk and high with some shady characters. They set her up or they just let things get out of control. Warn your kids to never get too intoxicated to take care of THEMSELVES. Friends can’t be trusted.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    People may knock her for getting drunk, (if that were the case. I still think she was drugged) but you should feel like it’s okay to get drunk around your friends and one is the designated driver. She didn’t know NOT to drink around them because they may kill her. If that were the case she would have never been with them in the first place.

  • Look@m3

    STOP….CTL ALT DLT nd shut down. LMAO You cant judge the wedlock kids!!!

  • Look@m3

    I sure would have hired a private investigator and put a gofundme account to help fund it if I cant afford it. I would have done that first thing in the morning when the police wasn’t trying to help!

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Yes, I live and born and raised in Chicago but like any other major city….leaving out at 11:30pm back in the day was OKAY….today….HELL TO THE NO…..especially if it was local to the area she stay which is called the Wild Wild West…but she was supposed to be going bowling with her friends and for her safety, her mom let her drive her car….seems responsible enough to me…and it seems as though the mom knew the friend…which is shy she brought that car back….the truth is going to eventually come out…one of those kids is going to break…

  • Look@m3

    This…..smh

  • EScrazy

    That baby only knew one person in the room personally the others were mutual friends and friends of them. She didn’t get set up for $200 either, the $200 came from them discussing the smoking fine for smoking in the room. They were high and drunk but also off pills you can tell by the way the girl keeps “biting down” and chewing on her lips. This shouldn’t have happened but this is also a reminder ladies that no matter how old we are we still have to tell our loved ones where we are and who we are with period. RIP BABY GIRL ??

  • chris

    Lol like lean on me. Hard being a parent.

  • chris

    Speaking in broken English, emoji and code ?

  • scentsychick30

    A blogger offered a reward of 40,000 hopefully it yields info to catch her killer if foul play was involved

  • chris

    We have numbers in Chicago we should look after our own and stop expecting everyone else to gaf when they have shown time and time again that they don’t.

  • chris

    That’s a wild story good thing you’re ok ?

  • chris

    It wasn’t used against you. He a crazy rapist he would have found any justification. “You didn’t kill me with that knife in the kitchen so you wanted it”

    Crazy world

  • Cricket404

    Whose name was the room in? Did they leave the boys in the room when they left? You don’t leave people in a room your responsible for arrest everybody!

  • MsChocCookie

    I don’t know what the heck, is going on….I’m so out of the loop from dealing with Irma’s big arse….however, who in her or his right mind walks into a freezer, and why couldn’t she find her way out of it? You walk in, you walk out, isn’t that how it goes? She had to be high off of more than alcohol….I’m just saying….someone fill me in…I feel like I’ve been in a time capsule for the past 3 days!!! I like the CROWN PLAZA…Big up to the Crown Plaza, their rooms are nice….in, and out the country….but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how anyone would end up in a walk in freezer, and was she even allowed, in that particular area?

  • YellowSauce

    yeah … that wasn’t JUST liqs that did that

  • fRAktal Reality

    @applebootay – Ok, I see it in your post.

  • Guess Who

    Changed the original title, Sandra? I’m glad. Although I fuss at you, I always respected your efforts in trying to post credible and reliable info.

  • Guess Who

    WTF

  • OP2

    That thought process is part of the problem in some cases. You should be taught to know your limits and not become so high that you can’t even be in control to think straight or fend for yourself. So there is blame of self first in those cases when one catches an STD/HIV, unwanted pregnancy or is caught with a DUI, etc.

    -that goes for young men too who find themselves so intoxicated that they are drugged only to wake up realizing that they have been violated by another male.

    People need to get back to informing and teaching their children how to think and carry themselves in order to be more in control of their lives when they are out that door.

    Well so much for ‘feeling’ that it is okay to get drunk around ‘so-called’ friends when young people are easily tricked or set up by those who they think are their friends.

    On the other hand, we are also dealing with saying it is okay for a minor to consume alcohol & get drunk, but somehow expect all the drunk hormonal minors to make good decisions and look out for each other especially when shady characters are also invited. smh

  • Nala Shakur

    I work in a restaurant where we use the SAME exact kind of freezer. MY SOBER ass can barely open with 2 hands without stumbling a bit…now..WHY on earth would an EMPTY freezer need to be on and running??? Lets say she did “wander” (from the 9th floor to the basement) into te freezer–it was probably already open–which brings me to my next question…the only reason someone would leave a freezer or fridge open is to air it out after it has been shut off….so again shit ain adding up. They are covering up something. The police AIN SHIT.

  • Nala Shakur

    And why would they leave their drunk friend in the lobby

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    I see a huge lawsuit coming against the police dept & the hotel Someone will be held responsible at least financially

  • Li

    They have to perform the autopsy first. No lawsuit until they know HOW she died. If her alco level was very high, it’s very possible she walked into the freezer thinking she was at her room. Do we know if the so-called friend was a TRUE friend?

  • Renee26

    Probably so

  • AnastasYah

    Bullshit!Her so called friend demanded she be paid 200.00 upon entry via text after one of the guys said the victim played him and he intended to Rape her once they arrived to the hotel party.The girl with the glasses also stated she’d go along with it because according to her she haven’t cared for the victim for a minute now meaning she had a vandetta against her for some time now.She set her up plain and simple.The text exchanges are all over social media.

  • AnastasYah

    Why was she the only girl really Lit out of her mind is the question because her so called friends in the video certainly isn’t. I find that strange as well.

  • Sunshine

    I read that the mom gave her keys to the car so she can go bowling. Why are we giving keys to a 15yr old at 1130p? She should be coming home soon or already at home, not going out like she is grown. Kids will try and sneak around, no surprise. But to see they got a hotel room, smoking weed and whatever else. You gotta look at the other folks in that room. Cause how you have the keys to my car and bring it back and say well I couldn’t find your daughter? Several folks going to jail.

  • DiorSchmoneeey

    She was 19

  • Sunshine

    Thanks for the update. I’ve read so many things and clearly not all of it is correct.

  • ~~eb

    I use to walk to that hotel for Starbucks everyday for two years and the staff was on point. There is no way this girl just walked in there. CPD do better.

  • EScrazy

    A wee bit hostile but ooooookay…RIP Baby Girl

  • Fatty4387

    But how could she walk way down to the basement no way

  • Soon2BWife

    Yup! That Irene chick is a jr crack head. I give her two years until becoming Felicia. The cadence of her speech is a dead give a eay she was popping pills.

  • Not Down With The BS

    They may have drugged her.

  • Queen B

    I cant wait til this story unfolds i dont think Irene (the glasses) had anything to with it….I think the Monifah girl was more involved she’s the one that work at the hotel and got the room for Irene. Irene is just a mutual friend

  • shun king

    the blacks that killed her not shyt the police just trying to find out

  • shun king

    where can i find out that dude said he was going to rape her?

  • CookieMobster

    Whom ever gave her the date rape drug is responsible for her inability to think clearly. Therefore if she walked into that freezer and couldn’t get out, because for her inability to think clearly then in my opinion, the person who gave her the date rape drug is responsible. BUT I am just an insurance agent….. BUT I do watch a lot of crime tv! ?

  • Carmen Harrison Johnson

    This just makes me sooooooooo sad reading what happened to her, she was SO YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL. Somebody knows the TRUTH AND IT WILL COME OUT SOONER OR LATER. GOD BLESS HER FAMILY

  • AnastasYah

    Go to any of those girls pages and read the comments.There’s screenshots of all the conversations before and after one in which her friend states about disliking her for awhile and demanding 200.00 dollars when the guys arrived after he quoted the price and said the girl played him ans he specifically said he was gonna rape her.The friend was privy to all of this beforehand.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    What????

    I don’t really judge them more so the parents who raise them wrong. Causing society to be able to say, “I told you so.”

  • friendofblog

    This story is disgusting. There are way too many holes in the story; especially with the ones posing as friends. Too many times, betrayal happens as a result of envy & hatred. I’ll continue to question these so-called friends; just as I did in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. What kind of friends allow one to go off with complete strangers?! My friends & I didn’t tolerate foolishness. It was understood that we were each other’s keeper. Simple and true. RIP Princess. My heart hurts for the ones who loved her. God bless.

  • Look@m3

    They said it was inconclusive….smh

  • Look@m3

    They autopsy came back inconclusive. According to Washington post. I found it strange that you literally had to read with in the text to find that out but I read it on 2 websites that it was inconclusive. So I had to ask my hubs WTH does that really means and he said that the they could not determine if it was a homicide or natural causes? But my thing is there has to be something there. The coroner could have said there were NO signs of strangulation or bruises or marks not just a general ol “not inconclusive” So I know its going to take a while for toxicology report but at that point I may be boiling hot! I’m sure they can locate these cameras faster so lets see these hotel cameras!

  • VM

    You believe Natalee’s friends played a part in her disappearance? I agree with you, you’re suppose to look out for your friends especially if you went to a venue together.

  • Look@m3

    No, how could she walk from the 9th floor stagger into the hotel lobby and then end up in the basement (I’m assuming) unless the Freezer is right next to the hotel lobby where the cops said they saw her on camera…I need the floorplan of this hotel!

  • Look@m3

    I agree….Have you guys been watching the latest episodes on oxygen where the father has hired a Private Investigator and they seem to be coming close to where they buried her on the island because some prick (Vandhoorts friend) who is mentally unstable is about to tell his roommate where the body was buried!

  • Look@m3

    Lets not forget, unless the hotel lobby is in the basement, she went from the 9th floor, to the hotel lobby (where cops said they saw her staggering) THEN to the basement where the freezer was. So they saying she basically made a stop on the first floor or some other floor before she ended up in the basement. Unless the Freezer is near the lobby area where they saw her on camera…there has to b e a nother camera near elevators showing where she either took stairs to basement or elevator to basement. There has to be more cameras explaining how she got there! I need a floor plan! Lawd this is driving me nuts!

  • friendofblog

    Yes I do! They allowed her to go off with a GROUP of complete strangers AND no one knew she was missing until the NEXT MORNING when they met up at the airport. That’s some pure fragglenaggle bullshat!

  • friendofblog

    The cops saw a young Black girl staggering and did nothing?! Hell, could’ve saved her life by asking for ID or arresting her for underage drinking. Where’s racial profiling when you truly need it? Geesh.

  • VM

    I forgot about the new documentary including her father. I will try to catch up on it to get up to speed. The leads always seem hot at first and then go cold.

  • VM

    I think you’re on to something because jealousy can drive you to do some things outside of your character. I never understood that either, why the friend didn’t drag her back inside the hotel. Have you heard the other story about her possibly being sold into the sex trafficking ring?

  • Look@m3

    They saw it on camera the next day when they finally decided to take the mom serious

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Undetermined status means they couldn’t find any visible reasons for her death. Now, they are waiting for toxicology results.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    What? Are you a troll? Yes.. yes you are..smdh..

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Now thats a friend! It is important to know you have friends who truly have your back! Nice!!

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Listen its tooo many weirdos out in this world to assume the one you meet isn’t crazy.. I don’t care how much we talk on the phone, how many times we facetime.. I’m letting somebody know where Im going! LOL

  • Dainese

    Im the first one to tell someone to get away from my drunk friend. I don’t drink so I’m always a care taker. I dont mind. If never forgive myself if something happened and they turned up missing bc I let them be careless in a time of incoherency.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Fucking Grammer police who have nothing to add to the convo OOOR nobody really comment on your shit so you find something wrong with everyone else’s huh so SOME fucking body will talk to you LOL such a lameassmove..

  • Layah Jhene

    Because that girl was ment to be used as organs harvest. Real talk. This reminds of That boy Kendrick Johnson that was found rolled up in that gym mat with his organs missing. Police said no foul play the autopsy said no foul play until his parents got a second autopsy and found out all his organs were gone his brain was gone, even his fingernails were ripped off, and he had blaunt force trauma to the neck or head and that he had been in an attack. If Kenneka did went in there on her own then her fingerprints should be all over the freezer door and handle and also on the thermostat that was turned on that was on the lowest setting.

  • Layah Jhene

    She was put there. If she walked in on her own then her fingerprints should be all over the freezer door and handles and also on the thermostat that turns the freezer on. Also that’s a double door freezer so her fingerprints should be on both doors that opens it.

  • Look@m3

    I’m not sure if I’m on the organ harvesting tip yet. However, I do believe this does happen there was another young guy from Atlanta who went to vegas trying to be a model and his body was discovered with missing organs too…

    https://newsone.com/2744177/ryan-singleton-atlanta-found-dead-missing-organs-california-desert/

  • Layah Jhene

    Yep! One guy admitted while she was being raped she had a heart attack which freeked him out and they put her in the freezer. Her Ex joked about her being in a deep freezer. Somebody on the video said “they in there raping her”. If she wasn’t raped then autopsy should show she at least has recently sex between that time period. Also That Irene girl joked in a text message about Kenneka gonna get pregnant at her hotel party and Kenneka called Irene a bad influence. SMH they set that girl up and I believe she was in that freezer to be used for organs harvest.

  • Layah Jhene

    You’re right! None of these people who end up dead with organs missing get mainstream news.

  • Nala Shakur

    EXACTLY THANK YOU…like in what direction did she go after being seen staggering in the lobby? Why aren’t they releasing who found her there?

  • Li

    Somebody helped her?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    This guy on youtube was saying this as well. I think that the owners had something to do with it maybe. Especially with how they treated the mom.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I agree it is obvious that the police does not care.

  • Layah Jhene

    Exactly!!! Her fingerprints should be all over the freezer door and thermostat. Hell if she was drunk and stumbling like they say, then her fingerprints should be on a lot of things leading down to that basement and into the kitchen to the freezer because drunk people be trying to hold on to the walls and objects in the area to keep from falling. I just watched a protest video in front of the hotel and the person recording the video found the basement window showing the exact freezer where Keeneka died. The freezer was open and had stuff in it SMH.

  • Layah Jhene

    Exactly!!!! Also Irene went Live at 11:30pm Friday night. Kenneka left her house at the same time so she wasn’t even there yet. The video of everyone in the room is before the actual party. They were still waiting on people to show up and that’s why Irene was on the phone giving out the hotel room number. Then I think she went live again about 1:36am Saturday morning. Thats around the same time Kenneka sister said that Kenneka texted her last. httpsploads.disquscdn.com/images/b3581b36aa26af21ea4ce1be3614ac10cb42301dee58985e1066e46af155747c.png

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I mean it’s a possibility. This whole story is a mess

  • Look@m3

    Just found out the fire dept found her. Also the freezer was a double freezer( a freezer inside another freezer) thats how the sister described it. Also, this freezer must be on the same floor as the lobby but the way the sister described it it was far off like you have to walk down a long hallway to get to double doors to get to the room where the freezer was. Im so baffled now and im thinking its the manager or security guard now or maybe a random guest but def. Someone whoi knew this hotel. Also it didnt sound like the freezer was on when they found her. She said the coronor only let her see Kenneka from the head up and her hair was disheveled like she had been fighting for her life. My heart is broke!

  • Renee26

    Ewww so they put food in in less than a week after a dead body was inside….gross

  • Layah Jhene

    He’ll yeah. I don’t think it was food because the freezer door was wide open. It wasn’t even taped off like a crime scene. It was just open with stuff in there. There ain’t no telling what it was. Something aint right with that Hotel

  • Renee26

    Shameful
