Protesters gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, on September 13, to demand information about the death of 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins, who died in the hotel’s walk-in freezer. Jenkins went missing on Friday, September 8, while attending a party on the hotel’s 9th floor. Her body was discovered early Sunday morning in a freezer in the basement of the hotel. Jenkins’ mother has been posting Facebook Live updates questioning the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s death. Police were reviewing security footage and interviewing a number of individuals related to the case, which they were treating as a “death investigation”. The Cook County Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy but said more tests are needed to determine the cause of death, the Chicago Tribune reported.
