After new photos were released of 19 year old, Kenneka Jenkins’, body, her mother, Tereasa Martin, is outraged and their family’s attorney, Sam Adam Jr., said the pics “raise more questions than they do answers.”
On Friday (Oct. 20, 2017), Rosemont police announced they’d officially closed the case into Kenneka’s death, after she was found dead inside of Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel early Sept. 10th. During a Friday press conference, Rosemont Police Chief Donald E. Stephens III said “The death of any child is tragic; but the death and circumstances surrounding Ms. Jenkins are especially sad.”
The Investigation’s Official Findings
The police ultimately concluded that Kenneka walked into the freezer on her own accord and was possibly intoxicated while doing so, ultimately dying from hypothermia. The coroner also said there didn’t appear to be any foul play. The police have also stated, throughout the investigation, that there was not any actual video of Kenneka walking into the freezer, just a video of her entering the hotel’s kitchen area. The entire time, Kenneka’s mother and family members did not believe it, because they said they were not getting clear answers from the authorities whenever they questioned their findings.
Kenneka’s Family’s New Suspicions After Seeing New Photos
Kenneka’s family has just seen new photos of Kenneka’s body in the state that she was originally found inside of the freezer (which the family long ago demanded and say they were just allowed to see after the case was closed). After viewing them, now more than ever, they are convinced there is something the authorities are hiding about Kenneka’s death. Possible signs of a struggle and possible sexual assault are what Kenneka’s mother and attorney say seem evident from the photos.
In a statement Attorney Adams made on Friday, he said the new photos of Kenneka’s body inside of the freezer are “are graphic and disturbing images and inexplicably show portions of Kenneka’s body exposed.” Also, although Kenneka’s other clothes were found untouched, the official police report stated that her jacket “was pulled up exposing her breasts.”
Kenneka’s Mother Shows Graphic Photo…Goes Off On Police, Begs FBI For Help
She also claims that the hotel has destroyed the camera right above where Kenneka’s body was found, which would shown exactly what happened in Kenneka’s last minutes of life.
Kenneka’s mother, Tereasa Martin, is now on social media blasting the police, begging the FBI for help, and asking the public to help her seek justice for her baby. She posted one of the new photos of Kenneka’s body, which shows Kenneka having some sort of torn black material hanging of her nails and her breasts exposed. You can view the photo she shared HERE.

In addition to her understandable outrage regarding the new info she’s received, Tereasa also broke down what she and her family had to endure and how they were treated when asking for answers from police. In hindsight, she’s now alleging that they were covering something up, as well as being nonchalant about finding out the answers:
