Did Social Media Help Solve Murder Of 19 Year Old Chicago Girl Allegedly SET UP, RAPED & MURDERED By Her Friends?!

 

This story sounds like it’s straight out of a Lifetime TV movie, but for Teresa Martin, it’s very real.

19 year old Kenneka Jenkins left home Friday night around 11:30PM, driving her mother’s car, to go meet friends. Kenneka told her mother, Teresa Martin she was “going to the show and bowling”, said The Chicago Tribune, but her friends redirected her to a party at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center in Rosemont, IL.

One of her friends, Monifah Shelton, reportedly works in the kitchen of the hotel.

The friends smoke, drank, and listened to loud music inside the hotel room, recording their night in a Facebook Live video. Around 4AM Saturday, Kenneka’s friends called Teresa and told her they could not find her daughter. However, they did have Kenneka’s cell phone and her mother’s car, and were returning them to Kenneka’s mother, Teresa. The friends claimed they searched high and low at the hotel, but could not find Kenneka.

Within the next hour, Teresa Martin headed to the hotel to look for her daughter. She asked hotel staff if they could review camera footage to find her daughter, but was told she needed to file a missing person’s report with police before they could roll back the footage.

Teresa then called police, but was told by the Rosemont Police Department to wait a few more hours to see if Kenneka turned up. The following morning, Leonore Harris, Kenneka’s older sister, filed a report. Hours later, around 1:15PM, police contacted the hotel about the missing teenager. According to the Chicago Tribune, the staff conducted an 11 hour search for Kenneka to no avail. Around 3-4PM, Police also told Kenneka’s family they didn’t see Kenneka anywhere on the hotel’s cameras.

 

Teresa and her family came back to the hotel later that evening, going door to door asking tenants if they’d seen Kenneka. The staff called the police on the family for disrupting customers. The responding officer listened to the family’s cries and decided to help. The officer reviewed the hotel’s cameras and 4 four hours later, he notified Kenneka’s family that he spotted her on the hotel’s cameras. Kenneka was spotted at 3:20AM “staggering” near the front desk of the hotel Saturday morning. Around 1AM Sunday, police notified the family that Kenneka’s body was found in the hotel’s walk-in freezer located in the basement.

Teresa Martin spoke with the Chicago Tribune about the police’s reluctance to give her information on her daughter’s death. See that HERE.

Police believed she was drunk when she staggered up to the freezer, opened the freezer’s heavy double steel doors and left herself inside to die. The basement area where Kenneka’s body was found is currently under construction with no working cameras, allegedly. Because of this, no food is stored in that freezer, but the freezer was still allegedly turned on to the lowest possible temperature. Because the basement area is under construction, the area is only allegedly accessible to employees, like Monifah, who worked in the kitchen and purportedly had a key to the freezer.

“They stupid, they in here RAPING HER.”

Kenneka’s friends Irene Roberts and Monifah Shelton told Teresa the 3 of them were leaving the party in room 926 on the hotel’s 9th floor when Kenneka went missing. The 3 of them were standing in the hallway, when Kenneka realized she left her phone and mother’s car keys in the hotel room. The 2 friends went back into the room to retrieve Kenneka’s belongings, but when they returned to the hallway, Kenneka was gone.

So how did the 19 year old stagger from the 9th floor of the hotel to the basement’s construction area, open heavy steel doors and place herself inside, all without initially being spotted on camera?

However, it is on Monifah Shelton’s Facebook Live video that you see pieces of what became Kenneka’s last night. Kenneka’s friend Irene Roberts used Monifah Shelton’s phone to upload the live video to Monifah’s page to create an alibi for the girls. Initially, Monifah didn’t want to be seen on camera, leaning over the phone, then covering the camera to hide her face.

The video was uploaded at 1:36AM Saturday morning.

As the girls talk amongst each other, Irene becomes visibly uncomfortable. All of Kenneka’s female friends are on one side of the hotel room, sitting on a bed. On the opposite side is Kenneka’s body hanging off the bed with 3 men around her. Flashes of Kenneka and the men are seen in the reflection of Irene’s glasses.

The men are allegedly attacking Kenneka, raping her in front of her friends. As Kenneka starts to cry for help, her friends turn the music up. During the attack, one of the friends asks Irene for a cell phone. Irene says that none of the phones are working due to the poor reception, while still live chatting on Facebook Live. She also uses another cell phone to give directions to the hotel room for other callers.

Social media users have come up with several stories of what happened that night. Some believe Kenneka and her friends weren’t as close as they seemed. Despite knowing Irene and Monifah since elementary school, Kenneka had recently fallen out with the girls, each of them posting about “fake friends” and finding out their friend was a “snake” just days before Kenneka’s disappearance. Others believe Kenneka’s friends sold her for sex, telling the men they’d have to pay $200 to sleep with Kenneka. In the video, you can hear one of the women say “it clearly says $200”, allegedly referring to the previously agreed upon price of Kenneka. The girls would then get Kenneka drunk and lay her across the bed. It is even believed that the girls got Kenneka under the influence by placing a date rape drug in her drink.

At one point in the video, one friend can be heard saying “they stupid, they in here raping her”.

You can hear Kenneka start to cry in the video, and her friends turned the music up…

Another flash of the room in Irene’s glasses show what appears to be Kenneka laying unconscious on the bed beside a man wearing a red top. Also seen is another man in a blue jacket and white shirt. A third man was present, dressed in white, but cannont be clearly seen in the video. Watch the Facebook Live video and see the timestamps below:

0:40 – “Man, the phones ain’t working, this a weak ass connection”, says Irene Roberts while uploading a clear video to Facebook Live. Someone asks, “let me see one of y’all phones though”.

2:32 – “Did you put any ‘influence’ in this?”, she asks after someone allegedly hands Irene a cup of liquor. She doesn’t drink it.

2:46 –  Despite the phones “not working”, Irene directs other men to the hotel room 926 on 9th floor.

2:44 –  Man allegedly asks Kenneka “you ready?”, then says “Lay down, where you going?” Her friends laugh.

2:59 – See the reflection in Irene’s glasses of one man dressed in red sitting on the opposite bed, another man in blue standing behind him.

3:05 – See Kenneka’s legs laying halfway off the corner of the bed in the reflection.

3:09 – Hear Kenneka start to cry, and her friends turn the music up.

3:05 – hear Kenneka allegedy say “I’m ready to go home”

Afterwards, one man says to the other “what’s up, you riding with me or what?”, his friend replies “bro, you tripping”.

Of course Kenneka’s friends all took to social media, posting pictures Kenneka, saying they missed her. But as most cases go, if too many people are in on a crime, one of them will eventually start telling.

Word of Kenneka’s mysterious disappearance spread, and for some, the story of how she went missing wasn’t adding up. In time, the “R.I.P Kenneka” posts on her friends’ pages received hundreds of comments of people accusing the friends of setting up the 19 year old to be murdered. Raven Martin, who claims to be Kenneka’s cousin, told Facebook users Monifah told their family that Irene left out of the hotel room and came back in with some money. She’s seen talking on the phone when someone asks Irene on the phone was she still in the room. Irene replied “yeah”, then handed off the phone to another friend before leaving. Raven also says her family has not heard from Irene since she deleted her Facebook page:

Before deleting her Facebook page, Irene Roberts allegedly revealed Kenneka didn’t walk out of the room and into the hallway. She was carried out by Monifah. One of the men told Monifah to leave Kenneka in the hallway and he would handle it from there after paying her $200. The conversation was captured in screenshots of Irene’s Facebook comments:

#SHARE ??Keep updating information??????????
All of the people who was involved in the Rape & Murder of #KennekaJenkins ????????

This story is probably not 100% accurate but most of it seems to be true. There is more to the story obviously...but we will not know until the family or police makes another statement.

1. Kenneka Jenkins (Murdered Raped Victim)

2. Monifah Shelton
(Hotel employee aka the so called "bestfriend" who brought her in the hallway; knew the hotel cameras near the freezer were off; the one who seem to set this up possibly for $200 ???? OR ???? She just wanted to mess with one of the guys there and left her friend (Kenneka) so she can talk to that guy and while she was gone, her friend (Kenneka) got raped and murdered by one of the boys)

3. One of the 3 or all of the guys possibly raped her, you can see their jackets in Irene glasses

4. Deon Hardimond 
(Suspect #1; Blue Jacket)

5. Ty Sanders 
(Suspect #2; White Jacket)

6. Irene Roberts
(The girl wearing the glasses; Watched her almost get raped)

7. Alandra Morris 
(The girl with the slick pony tail, wearing white in the live video; She's best friends with Deon Hardimond)

8. Guy in red jacket (Suspect #3; needs a update for his page) 
There possibly was more guys in there due to it being a hotel party but one of them definitely tried to take advantage of the young lady.

update: the conversations we were hearing were to the left of Irene, Kenneka was in the bathroom the whole time.. 
Kenneka didn't want her Monifahs dude's friend. so when she drug her out there they went they all separate ways, she thought they was meeting back up and they were probably supposed to, but Kenneka probably put on a fight he probably chocked her out and put her in there bc he was scared. When she got done and it was time to meet back up, Kenneka wasn't where she was supposed to be, so Monifah (her bestfriend, not the girl on the live) came back to the room looking for her and everybody was taking her as a joke because she was the one that left out with her
UPDATE; YALL SHES ON INSTA TALKING NOW ... (they say it was a fake page, who knows)

Monifah was at the CandleLight doe.

this is what i pieced together. ight, Kenneka's bestfriend, had her hating ass friend on her live video name Irene. link: https://www.facebook.com/100014227532806/videos/287282168422699/
Irene and Nene had recently got into it, there's a few posts on Irene's new and old page that has some shade that could be directed towards her, who knows. i found a picture of a conversation of Irene and some guy telling her not to cry on her birthday, and " front ha faking ass ".
In the live video, some people say they heard her saying help me around 3:00, but the tension in the air was already bad around 2:00 minutes.

Ight, so they claim they was still out, after she went missing, after they called her mom? no police was called til Saturday. But she deleted those post...

Her bestfriend Monifah, or whatever the hell, switched up her stories numerous of times it's in the photos, y'all click to look. Her and Irene blaming it on each other.

But if you look in her glasses, last photo, you will see the guy with the black jacket with his arms around her neck and her arm laying next to his leg and her pants, that are shown in the snapchat video..

They claim the cameras in the hotel by the freezer was cut off, why? Because Irene, works in the damn hotel in the Kitchen. How would someone know to put her in a freezer in a BASEMENT? either the hotel with the shit or once again Irene.

But why would Nifah walk her out there and not come back in with her? when she claimed everyone all walked out when she left.. ??????

Then on top of that, they had her keys, her moms car, and etc. Driving, in traffic in they friend that's missing car...

Then on top of that, mfs asked Irene how she got in the freezer and she said " Magic " with a Gif. 
?? ight.

It's 4 male suspects. That i know of, i'll add more information once i get it.

she admitted to leaving her at the hotel and then deleted her post, and also deleted the post she shared for kennekas mom looking for her.

another piece of information, they sold her on backpage, that's why she gave her the room number, 2:45 she just left out of the bathroom and another one tried to take her back in. that's why at 2:41 she said " They in there raping that girl " and she said " I told y'all "

Actually: 
hen around 2:28 like she whispered " they over there raping that girl" somebody crying and irene said " I told y'all" then they came out and the toilet flushes. then someone else tried to fuck her and she started whining and Irene turned on the music so they couldn't hear. mane this is horrible

Aren't walk in freezers all the way in the basement usually? One of the girls happens to work in the kitchen. The body ends up in the walk in freezer where it just so happens the cameras are down while under construction? Hmmm

Saw her mom on earlier videos, I thought she was just not accepting her daughter getting fucked up and stumbling into a freezer

 

this is fucked though... Those girls deserve life sentences, they're even worse than the guys in this situation if true
