No video of Kenneka Jenkins entering freezer where she was found dead, hotel says


There’s a reason the public hasn’t seen surveillance video of Kenneka Jenkins walking into the hotel freezer where her body was found earlier this month.

It doesn’t exist, a spokesperson for the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center tells CBS Chicago.

More specifically, there is no video camera trained on the freezer in the hotel kitchen in Rosemont, Illinois, where Jenkins’ body was found Sept. 10.

The information came as attorneys for Jenkins’ survivors toured the hotel Tuesday.

Jenkins, 19, went to a party at the hotel Sept. 8 with friends but was reported missing overnight. Her body was found about 24 hours later, and police have told family members it appears Jenkins inadvertently caused her own death by getting trapped inside.
