But Martin believes this was no accident. After her mother, Tereasa Martin, demanded hotel staff search for her daughter, Jenkins body was found in the hotel freezer of Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel & Conference Center in Rosemont, Illinois. She checked into the hotel late Friday night to attend a party with friends before she went missing early Saturday morning. Jenkins was later found inside an industrial freezer on Sunday night, more than 24 hours after her disappearance and was pronounced dead on site. An autopsy Sunday afternoon failed to determine a cause of death, and the medical examiner's office said it was awaiting toxicology tests and further investigation by police. The friends left with Jenkins phone and in the auto Martin lent her daughter for the night.
Detectives are looking at the Roberts video and others, a Rosemont Police spokesman told reporters.
"There is some construction activity where a new restaurant is being built, and (she was found) in that vicinity", Gary Mack, spokesman for the village of Rosemont, told the Tribune. According to the Tribune, investigators said they have identified most of the people in the clip-which has been shared more than 50,000 times and has been viewed more than 4 million times.
A 19-year-old girl was found dead in a hotel freezer over the weekend.
In an exclusive interview with the Chicago Tribune, Jenkins' mother spoke out against the Rosemont police, saying that when they told her her daughter was dead, they didn't allow her to see her body until several hours later.
Following the mysterious death, her case has attracted huge attention on social media.
According to an Associated Press report, an exit button inside the freezer was supposed to let people open the door if it shut behind them, but authorities found it sometimes faulty.
Meanwhile Jenning's friends and family have started a change.org petition to try to close down the Crowne Plaza Hotel -- that petition already has more than 33,000 signatures.
"Best friend, no friend, you're a suspect, you was in there, just come forward". If her daughter was drunk, she said, she would have had a hard time opening the freezer door on her own. The teen's body was discovered nearly 24 hours after she went missing.
"I don't think anything has been ruled in or ruled out at this point", Mack said.
Some believe Jenkins' death is a result of foul play, but police have yet to confirm how they're investigating the incident.
"These are all precious hours, especially when I went between four-ish and five-ish", she said.
But how her daughter got there and the circumstances surrounding her death remain a mystery.
Staff in an IL hotel made a tragic discovery Sunday when they stumbled upon the body of a teenage girl.
He said police also were not disclosing whether there were any signs of trauma to Jenkins' body.
