The Rosemont Police Department has released video footage of Kenneka Jenkins, 19. The teen was at the Crowne Plaza hotel near Chicago O’Hare Airport attending a party in a hotel room. Footage posted on social media by friends of the teen are seen drinking alcohol and smoking what appears to be weed. Jenkins’ body was discovered in a hotel freezer last Sunday. Speculation that she was raped and murdered filled social media and resulted in protests outside the hotel.

The video released by law enforcement clearly shows Kenneka stumbling and disoriented as she walks in the freezer can be seen below:
