On News!! Teen Found Dead in Hotel Freezer Died of Hypothermia



The death of 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins, who was found in dead in a hotel freezer in Chicago last month, has been ruled an accident, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Jenkins died of hypothermia from exposure to cold in a walk-in freezer at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont, but alcohol intoxication and the use of a drug for treating epilepsy and migraines were also "significant contributing factors," the office said in a report.

Jenkins’ blood-alcohol level was 0.112, which is higher than the 0.08 BAC typically used to rule if an individual is too drunk to drive, the report said.

The teen also did not have a prescription for the topiramate medication found in her system, her family reportedly told investigators. The amount of the drug in her system was in the "therapeutic range,” the report said.
