    Easy Captain Conspiracy! Yet again I disagree with you on another case. But this one will be easy to prove though I think. When the tox screen comes back I'm confident that it'll be clean (other than alcohol and maybe some marijuana. Or some prescription drugs if she was prescribed any by her doctor) and that hopefully will prove to you that she went in there on her own free will and died by accident. Otherwise we have to believe that someone murdered her with a freezer?!? Never even heard of that before. If she was murdered how the heck did they (the murderer) know no one would hear her scream, or go inside the freezer to get something or check on something or go in there for any reason at all? Either they are the luckiest murderer in history or it just wasn't a murder. The simplest solution is almost always the correct solution., at least it is last time I checked.

    I have narcolepsy and I take a medication called Xyrem which is basically GHB (the date rape drug). It helps people with narcolepsy to better sleep at night. Once I had to get out of bed after taking it and when it kicked in, I struggled for a while and then collapsed in my kitchen floor and slept there for several hours. The clip of Kenneka walking down the hall reminds of what it's like to try to resist Xyrem. It's as if it is physically pulling your head into subconsciousness. Had Kenneka been drugged, she probably started to feel sleepy while standing in the lobby and decided to walk around to wake up. As she walked, the drug would have become more intense and disorienting. The moving around would have been the only thing keeping her awake as she may not have been able to keep her eyes open very well. It's plausible to think she could have stumbled into a freezer, had no idea how to get out, and succumbed to the drug.

    Nothing to do with this case, but; I'm listening to this at work and when the Captain yelled, "Buford, stop eatin' out of the dog bowl!" I nearly choked on my coffee. I LMAO for about 5 minutes! Oh my gosh, CRACKED me up!

    Thank you, Nic, for your closing statements. This story has hit me so hard. In 2014 I was drugged and raped in a city where, unbeknownst to me, I had no real friends who cared (cops didn't care either). There were so many people I came across that night, and it was so painfully obvious that something was very wrong with me. Although the cops hurt me more instead of helping me, the woman who called them, along with other residents who found me discarded in the snowy parking lot of their apartment complex, could've left me for dead and not helped me. For those people I am forever grateful. It's SO incredibly important that as decent human beings we have each other's backs. If something looks or feels off, SAY SOMETHING. TALK TO THE PERSON. ASK IF THEY NEED HELP. At the end of the day who really gives a shit if you end up looking like a dumbass because you were wrong.

    I don’t hear anything like “this drink is for her.” I hear something like “I’m trying to get a cigarette over there.”

    Now I’ve listened a bunch of times and you’re right. I think her exact words were “I’m hoping to give this to that girl over there.”

    You can clearly hear this guy in the second video say what up blood and he also says BD which is the blood gang that’s why the girl who is next to him throws up the b with her hand. So I’m thinking if she was raped and killed it’s a gang Initiation for somebody wanting to be in that gang. You must shed blood from a murder or a violent crime in order to be a member.

    I'm gonna agree with the Captain and Meg here... Kenneka was definitely drugged. And she probably did walk into that freezer on her own and passed out when she got in there. But she was drugged out of her mind. She was also likely raped. And she left the party so she could get away... but she had no control over herself. In her drunken/drugged mind she likely thought the freezer was a room, not a freezer. She probably thought it was a safe place. This is so sad. :( Unfortunately date rape drugs often don't show up in toxicology tests. There are people from that party that know a lot more than they are saying. She was drugged. She was raped. And then she fled. Whoever drugged her is responsible for her death.

    Just a quick note on one of the Social Media messages mentioned in part 2. "Play" is oftentimes a reference to "Party and Play" meaning the drugs to facilitate sexual activity. Such a sad story.

    The first think that came to mind after watching the videos is the possibility she may have consumed the drink/drug combo "lean." I'm just basing this on a hunch, but about midway through the last party video I thought perhaps I heard the girl say the word, "purple," which could be referring to lean aka purple drank, also it could account for Kenneka's peculiar posture & manner of walking. Any thoughts?

    I think you guys bought into a conspiracy theory early on. In order to believe in the conspiracy, the police and hotel would have to both be in it. That is highly unlikely. A hotel can not show an individual video footage without infringing on the privacy of the the other individuals staying at the hotel. A 19 year old is an adult. I'm not sure what polices you would like for hotels to adopt. You would be opening the door for stalkers, abusive spouses looking for the spouse that has left them, ect. The girl may just be drunk. Or someone might have drugged her, the toxicology report will tell. I think you jumped the gun on this case.

    @Gena in Kentucky. When I first watched the video I believed it was lean. Just looking at their cups and the dude looking for his cup. So sad I hope the truth comes out.

They also call each other folk and throw up pitchforks, another Folk gang sign. Blood gang isn't Chicago. They may be from "side" as far as Folks or People's, but they aren't talking about a blood gang. Gotta know what ur talking about before putting stuff out that's not true man

    So a few thoughts before I listen to this episode: 1. Why was the kitchen accessible? It should have been locked/secured. 2. Why was the freezer unlocked if it wasn't being used? When I worked in a dining hall we locked all of the freezers, coolers etc, mainly for theft prevention. To me, she should never have gotten in there. I think that she was so disoriented that she ended up in there and the light was off. Most freezers have a light that you have to turn on and off. If she stumbled in there and it was dark, she couldn't find her way back out again. Why did it take so long to find her? Clearly that kitchen and the freezer aren't used that often and should have been secured from public access. In watching the party videos-I just see a college party. I couldn't understand that much-but I didn't really sense anything other than party/drunk banter. People talk shit all the time. A lot will talk a lot more shit the more alcohol and drugs you take. As for people not talking-someone mentioned the negative history with the black population and cops, that could be a big part of it. Another is the fact that these kids are college aged-some of them might be on a scholarship and might not want that to come up affect their scholarship. And kids still don't understand the far-reaches of social media yet. There are multiple studies that say the human brain is not mature until age 25...

    None of you paid attention to the police admitting they reanacted that girl walking down the halls? That's not the and girl, look at the thickness, pants are different as far as the upper holes in the pants, the chest and shoulders. Why was there missing footage and different timestamps? Why is the owner the same guy investigated for organ harvesting? Don't be fooled by what they tell you band show you. There's more to it. People all over the world can see 👀 that. God rest her soul and be with her ma.🙏

    In my personal opinion, it looks like the girl from the bathroom is bringing out a cup of water. Its a clear liquid and the cup is mostly full. Assuming the party planners dropped the ball on bringing cases of bottled water to the hotel, the bathroom sink would be the best place to get some. When she states "I'm going to give this to that girl over there" or whatever she says, my assumption is that she noticed someone was pretty schmackered and needed to sober up. Whether she is referring to Kenneka or someone else I do not know but this could be an example of someone playing party mom and trying to help out a stranger that is obviously inebriated. I think that if she knew the girl who she was bringing the drink to that she would have called her by name. With that being said I still suspect foul play. Some more information I wish that we knew is if the walk-in freezer was difficult to open and if the freezer could close by itself. Working in the food industry several years I've dealt with many a walk-in freezer and it always seems to take stupid amounts of strength to open the doors. Cheers to the garage.

    I'm a new listener to your podcast and find it entertaining. I enjoy research and non fiction especially of the dark variety. however after being pleased with some of your shows about cases I was previously aware of, I clicked on your newest (at the time) episode (keneeka jenkins) and was shocked to hear two men spending 2 hours of their lives and other peoples time on PURE CONJECTURE. there is absolutely no evidence of a crime here at all and listening to two obviously rich white men talk about the actions of and trying to understand the culture/vernacular/intentions of young african americans was simply painful. its not like they found her bruised naked body on the side of the road or riddled with bullet holes/stab wounds they found her unharmed and frozen and alone after footage of her drunkenly stumbling around. you were also quick to dismiss the only social media post telling the truth about what happend "i feel bad i dared somebody to go into that cooler and take a selfy tonight". this girl got hammered at a party like all 19 year olds who dont drink she couldnt handle her booze and she was in top physical condition. she got it in her head that she had to take that selfy and accept that dare and her body still has coordination (unlike mine after years of football and alcohol) so she was able to stumble her way back to the cooler where she sat down to take a selfy and fell asleep. there is no evidence of any crime at all, unless you believe that 19 year olds are only old enough kill people in iraq looking invisible weapons and not to drink alcohol. Tox screen came back with only booze and a drug used to treat migrains and epilepsy...if you're going to drug and rape somebody you dont use a drug like that especially these people who live in a big city and have access to all sorts of real drugs including date rape ones. there are countless murders and violent crimes over the last 70 years you can cover, i dont know why you would waste your time or mine on pure speculation before you can even tell if a crime occured. youre better than that, or at least your jib is

    Nick, I too have lost days to this story since your podcasts. Here are some open questions I have that I really hope you and the Captain will cover in a follow up so I can get some sleep! I am new to posting to your forum so I hope you will forgive me if I break some rules by sharing a link to someone else's videos. This guy has kept a level head and put the currently available surveillance video into perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaiYgRxEZHY No "blue jacket" guy, why is Kenneka so "thick" in the surveillance videos etc. What is still bugging me is... In your podcasts about this case, you read FB posts from Monifa right after Kenneka was found in the freezer that mention Monifa and friends discussing "going live" from a freezer in the hotel as a prank. If Monifa really posted this,is it possible that Kenneka was looking for her friends in the two different kitchens she stumbled through? Could her friends have cased out the freezers with Kenneka at an earlier date/time and even in her incredibly lost/intoxicated/drugged state, Kenneka went looking for her friends there? Another thing I don't see much chatter about is the parking ticket for Kenneka's mother's car on September 6. Teresa Martin mentions finding that ticket (by ticket I mean stub or receipt, not like a ticket from a police officer) but I don't see any real chatter or conspiracy theories about how that ticket ended up in Teresa's car/possession when she made the initial 911 call on September 10. Lastly, what is up with all of the claims that the Rosemont PD recorded an entire reenactment of Kenneka's walk through the hotel that fateful night? Drives me crazy. Why on earth would the PD dress a girl up and have her pretend to be Kenneka for an PD reenactment? I am just venting at this point. I know about the one YouTube video posted that showed "proof"the PD reenacted this and that it's ridiculous, but I would love a debunk on that too. Thanks Guys Love you both and love your gib! T

    Just not seeing any foul play here. I think she got very very drunk, wandered off, found her way into a freezer, passed out, froze to death. If someone was after her they would have appeared in the video pursuing her. I completely dismiss all of the crap that has come out later in regards to social media comments. Little wannabe gangsters are always trying to take credit for stuff that will enhance their rep as an outlaw. Now, the hotel is probably super concerned about a lawsuit here, as are the police department. The mother did want some kind of search to take place and that search would have saved her life. All they had to do is check the video and they would have seen her head in to that freezer. I think the appearance of cover-up involves that litigious angle.

    Caroline, thanks for being open and sharing your story. I really appreciate the honesty and am so sorry you had to go through that. Drake, maybe you should edit your comment a little bit and try to use some correct grammar before you post a criticism of Nic and the Captain. They work extremely hard on this podcast, and while I understand you are being culturally sensitive, it is also offensive to assume that they are “rich white men”. This case shouldn’t be about skin color, it’s a tragedy wherein a young girl died way too soon.

    They’ve released new photos of how she was found in the freezer and it’s hard to make the assumption she drunkly wandered into the freezer after seeing those pictures. Anyone whose interested should look them up. They were posted on a rosemont website.

    Kelsey I saw the newly released photos of her body in the freezer. I do think it's odd the way her body was positioned. I think it would have been more natural to be in a ball or slumped over from trying to stay warm. The laying face down is interesting to me.

    This case is still very strange to me. I just don't get it. From the new information it looks like there was no foul play. Or at least obvious signs of such. This one is going to bother me for quite some time. Nic

    Nic, I think this case is going to bother a lot of people for awhile. Even though I have seen many videos that clearly debunk a lot of the wild theories out there, I still feel like there is something "off" about this whole thing. The topiramate being the most mysterious to me personally. What a bizarrely random drug for a 19 year old to be "slipped" by someone. I suppose whomever acquired this drug could have been tricked by the seller of the drug into believing it was something else. Kenneka could have also willingly taken something thinking it was X or some other more common party drug. I do wonder why the PD didn't further investigate where the drug came from and/or how Kenneka ended up with it. I have read all of the police reports on the Rosemont site and it being common for Kenneka and/or her friends to "party" was mentioned in several of the police interviews. That doesn't prove anything of course, but I could see how someone could take a pill offered by a friend if they have done that in the past with no negative consequences. The most haunting part of the surveillance video for me is that last walk she makes through the kitchen before ultimately ending up in that freezer. She does appear to be looking for someone or something in that part of the footage in my personal opinion. Just something about the way her head moves like she is peeking or listening closely to something before she goes around that corner to where the freezer is seems to innocent. It probably haunts me because I know once she goes around that corner she is never seen alive again. /: This is a sad tale and I do hope that if anything nefarious occurred that the family gets justice and some sort of closure. I don't think anyone can really ever get over the death of a child, but to have so much mystery surrounding these circumstances combined with all of the insanity that gets posted on YouTube about this tragedy must be awful for Kenneka's mother and other family and friends. Thanks for providing a forum to share thoughts on this situation. It is nice to see how respectful most of the posters here are. T

    I hadn't seen a post in this in awhile, but did find some information that showed her blood-alcohol content was 0.112, above the legal limit for driving...and toxicology tests revealed a drug used for treating epilepsy and migraines was found present in her system.
