Mother of Kenneka Jenkins continues to lead protests; demands to see full surveillance footage of daughter

‘Show me the tape of my child walking in there. Show me how did my child get in that freezer. That’s all I’m asking.’

The mother of Kenneka Jenkins, a teen who reportedly died after wandering into a hotel’s walk-in freezer, continues to demand answers from local authorities, as reported by News One.

Tereasa Martin has led protests outside of the Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont for several nights in a row, in an attempt to force the hotel to release surveillance footage that actually shows her daughter entering the walk-in freezer.

Martin led chants of “Justice for Kenneka” and “tear it down” during the well attended protests.

Martin has also called for the FBI to take over the investigation into her daughter’s death, noting that local authorities have yet to announce an official cause of death, with an autopsy still pending, despite the funeral being held on Saturday.

The grieving mother also alleged that the hotel didn’t release pertinent footage out of greed, suggesting that it may paint the hotel in a negative light, which would impact their bottom line.

“It’s all about money. They want to make money,” she said. “Show me the tape and you can make all the money you want.”

“Show me the tape of my child walking in there. Show me how did my child get in that freezer. That’s all I’m asking.”

The videos of the protests were posted to Martin’s Facebook account.

As previously reported by CrimeOnline, questions have surrounded the death of Jenkins, who is alleged to have drunkenly wandered into a basement freezer after attending a party in the Rosemont hotel. Police have released some surveillance footage of the night in question, but the footage does not show the 19-year-old entering the walk-in freezer, leading some to speculate there was foul play involved.
