Protests broke out in Rosemont on Wednesday at a hotel where a young woman was found dead in a freezer several days ago.
Jenkins’ family said police told them she was intoxicated when she entered the freezer. But her family and local activists are calling for more transparency in the ongoing investigation.
Meanwhile, protesters filled the lobby and chanted, “Shut it down!” according to ABC 7 Chicago. Her family has insisted that if she were intoxicated, she would not have been able to open the heavy freezer door.
Never miss a local story.
Police have promised to show surveillance video from the hotel to Jenkins’ mother, Tereasa Martin, according to the Chicago Tribune.
