*The mysterious death of 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins continues to attract attention. As ThisNthat reported this morning, the body of the beautiful young woman was found in a freezer at Chicago’s Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont.
Today news of her death has gone viral. News outlets who never even appeared interested in Black life (or death) have reports up as of this morning.
A very cryptic Facebook Live video posted by Monifah Shelton, a friend of the dead woman, where netizens claim they hear the dead girl saying, “Help me,” has garnered more than 4M views and a Twitter page in Kenneka Jenkins name (later found to be fake as she had no Twitter account) is suspected to be someone “confessing” to the murder.

In a press conference held by the family on Monday, she alleged her daughter’s death was an “inside job.”
