Death Scene Photos Of Kenneka Jenkins’ Body Found In Chicago Hotel Freezer Raises Even More Questions

Photos released in the Kenneka Jenkins case are raising more questions on her mysterious death. Kenneka was found dead in a Chicago hotel's freezer and people are demanding answers.

The Rosemont police released dozens of postmortem photos of Kenneka, taken in the freezer where her body was discovered. The graphic images have raised more suspicions and many people believe she was murdered. 

Authorities announced last week they they have closed the investigation into Kenneka's death, after ruling her death as "accidental." Investigators believe Kenneka simply wandered into the freezer while intoxicated. 

Police stated there is "no evidence that indicates any other conclusion."


Authorities showed the graphic photos to Jenkins’ family on Thursday. 

The attorney for Kenneka's mother Tereasa Martin described the photographs as "graphic and disturbing images (that) inexplicably show portions of Kenneka’s body exposed."

The 19-year-old's body was found inside a Rosemont hotel freezer on September 10, after she went missing 21 hours after attending a party on the ninth floor of the hotel.

The police report stated that Kenneka was found dead lying on her side with her face down, her left arm under her body, and her right shoe was off. 

I love you like I know you😌 and I don’t even know you😔 #kennekajenkins 💜

The photographs show her wearing jeans and a jean jacket and the shirt underneath was "pulled up exposing her breasts." 

Looked like a beautiful ceremony 💜 ________________________________________________________ #justiceforkenneka #justice4kenneka #kenneka #chicago #monifahshelton #kennekajenkins #teresamartin #crowneplaza

The attorney for Kenneka's mother stated, "Frankly, the photos depicting how Kenneka was found raise more questions about what happened to Kenneka Jenkins than they answer."

Many find it strange that Kenneka's shirt was pulled up while in the freezer. However, scientists that have studied hypothermia have reported on a phenomenon known as "paradoxical undressing." People freezing to death often remove their clothing.

An article in a scientific journal stated, "It is concluded that paradoxical undressing might be explained by changes in peripheral vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels supplying the extremities) in the deeply hypothermic person. It represents the last effort of the victim and is followed almost immediately by unconsciousness and death."

The attorney for Jenkins' family stated that the photos of Kenneka's body were shown to them during a meeting with Rosemont police during the investigation. Kenneka's family claimed that police previously refused their request to view information about the case.


"Numerous requests for any and all videos and photos showing Ms. Jenkins going into the freezer of her own volition have not been forthcoming, and quite frankly raise more questions than answers as to how and why Ms. Jenkins was found in the condition in which she was located," the attorneys stated.

Surveillance videos from the hotel showed Kenneka wandering around the hotel, appearing to be unsteady on her feet. However, there doesn't appear to be a video of Kenneka actually going into the freezer.
