Medical Answers Still Weeks Off In Teenage Girl Found In Freezer Case

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office says it could be weeks before it has answers in the case of a teenage girl recently found dead at a suburban hotel.

Kenneka Jenkins, 19, was last seen at a party at a hotel in Rosemont early Saturday morning, according to police. Hotel employees found the girl dead inside a walk in freezer the next day.

Rumours about the case have swirled online, fueled by a Facebook video that appears to show Jenkins hours before she died. 

Medical examiner spokeswoman Becky Schlikerman says they’ve performed an autopsy but still need more information.
