According to DailyMail, Chicago activist Andrew Holmes claims to have seen surveillance footage of Kenneka Jenkins hours before her death and said that the young woman entered the hotel’s walk-in freezer alone and was not forced inside. Could it have been just a freak accident? NO foul play involved?
Andrew Holmes, who has worked in the community for decades fighting against violence, told the Chicago Tribune that detectives in Rosemont allowed him to view the video on Wednesday when he went to seek answers on behalf of Jenkins’ family.
‘We all was wondering and wanted to know did anybody pull her down there?’ Holmes told reporters Thursday.
‘Did anybody force her down there? Was anybody on the other side in that room when she got down there? And the answer to that is ‘no.’
My question still remains, how did she know about the freezer, nine floors away from the party? Why did she go out and what for? Why was the freezer on, if it wasn’t in use?
Jenkins’ body was discovered in the industrial, walk-in freezer at The Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in Rosemont, a suburb of Chicago, on Saturday at around midnight.
