Kenneka Jenkins memorial becomes a call for FBI's help with death investigation

The results of an autopsy by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office are pending. The hotel has 47 cameras that captured about 36 hours of surveillance video footage.

Jenkins' body was discovered in a basement walk-in freezer early Sunday morning at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois. She appears disoriented and stumbling in the videos.

But when Jenkins is next sighted exiting an elevator at 3:25 a.m., she is alone and visibly impaired, and staggers out of the elevator, briefly leaning on the wall for support before heading down the hallway. She struggles to head in one direction, and almost falls over several times, but catches herself.

"I'm not a professional, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation, from what I heard, they are professionals", she said.

A demonstration later appeared online also providing doubt to the notion she was able to walk herself into the freezer, due to the weight of the door.

Those answers are desperately being sought after by Jenkins' mother, Teresa Martin, and her legal team, who still are skeptical of the story that the young girl simply walked into a Chicago hotel freezer and died.

When her friends realized Jenkins was missing, they notified her mother, Tereasa Martin.

911 calls also reveal that was found "frozen solid". They said they plan to do an independent investigation. Drugs and alcohol were present at the party, police said.

Jenkins was last seen leaving her home in Chicago for the party at around 11:30 p.m. on Friday, the Rosemont Public Safety Department said in a statement.

A local minister led the crowd in a prayer of support for Jenkins' family.

"On our end, we're not ruling out anything but we are using that footage to try and pinpoint what happened", Balogh told CNN. Police believe at least 31 people were in the room that night and were still trying to locate 15 of them, working with Chicago police to do so. Police were looking for four others.
