    Witnesses reported seeing Jenkins at a party on the ninth floor of the hotel Friday night and into the early morning on Saturday, police said. But at about 4:30 a.m., Jenkins' friends couldn't find her and called her family.

    Jenkins' name was entered into a missing person's database at 1:16 p.m. Saturday, police said.

    Rosemont police contacted the Crowne Plaza about the missing woman, and hotel employees began a search.

    Jenkins' body was discovered inside a walk-in freezer at 12:24 a.m. Sunday. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Rosemont police said they are investigating Jenkins' death.

    Martin said the family members stayed at the hotel until after 1 a.m. Sunday, when police informed them they had discovered Jenkins' body in the walk-in freezer.

    It was not clear who located Jenkins' body, but Mack said the hotel was doing some construction in the area where she was found. Martin said she was told the freezer Jenkins was in was turned on and cold but was not being used to store food.

    "I just happen to know there's work being done on some new facilities over there, so there is some construction activity where a new restaurant is being built, and (she was found) in that vicinity," Mack said. "This is not an area where anyone would typically be who was a guest in the hotel."

    It is not clear whether the construction area was blocked off in any way.

    From your link:

    Jenkins' mother, Tereasa Martin, said police told her Jenkins apparently let herself into the freezer while inebriated and died inside. An autopsy was performed Sunday but it wasn't immediately clear whether foul play was suspected, according to Becky Schlikerman, spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office.
    So they think it may have been accidental, but looks like they want to make sure there was no foul play. It's possible someone could have followed her from the party and took advantage of her. That would likely show up in the autopsy, though.

    Her friends had her phone, she must have left it behind. Perhaps she went to look for a restroom and got lost in her inebriated state. Wonder how high her BAC was? Kids really need to have some adults around when they're having a party with underage drinking. How was a 19 yo able to be served alcohol?


    Poor girl. Condolences to her family.

    ETA: There are some videos on YouTube. Not sure if authentic.

    Makes me upset that rooms are being booked for such "parties". Where does the responsibility of the hotel begin and end? If the attendees are over 18 I suppose there's nothing a parent can do to prevent their child from attending.
