Kenneka Jenkins’ Mother Denounces Activist
Kenneka Jenkins‘ mother, Teresa Martin, is denouncing the Chicago activist who stated he viewed surveillance video that shows the teen walking into a hotel freezer claiming he misrepresented her family.
Hours after Andrew Holmes held a press conference laying out the details of what he allegedly saw on a hotel surveillance video.
During a protest on Thursday night, she addressed Holmes saying:
He came out of the blue and acting … like he was a friend.
But he calls me this morning and says, ‘Oh the hotel is not making any money. I think you need to go online and stop the protest.
When a woman asked if Andrew’s statements were false during his press conference, Teresa answered, “Yes.”
Family Receives Surveillance Video
The attorney for the family said they have NOT received a video showing her walking into a hotel freezer.
Despite requests for all evidence, we have received only snippets of video, none of which shows Kenneka Jenkins walking into a freezer,” Larry Rogers Jr. said in a statement. “The family has not been provided any video or other evidence of Kenneka Jenkins walking into a freezer.
“Serious questions remain as to how she ended up in a Crowne Plaza Hotel freezer and why it took a day and a half for the hotel to find Kenneka.”
Crowne Plaza has offered to cover Kenneka’s funeral expenses.
Hotel spokesman Glenn Harston stated, “Our hearts go out to Kenneka’s mother, her family and friends. We hope covering the funeral costs provides a small bit of relief for them.”
