As per the rumors spread over the social media, organ trafficking is linked with West Side teen Jenkins’ death and that is the reason she found dead in a walk-in freezer of a Rosemont hotel. Some support “organ trafficking ring” rumor while some are in doubt. Twitter is filled with conspiracy theories about Jenkins’ death. People wrote:
“and the owners of the hotel was also owners of an organ place so they were gonna sell her organs for money !! just sick !!! poor lil girl”
“So we’ve gone from fake friends, rape culture, and now organ harvesting theories for what happened to Kenneka Jenkins. Okay, cool”
“Bruh, they’re now on Facebook talking about Kenneka Jenkins was frozen for organ trafficking and she wasn’t raped by anyone in the room..”
“honestly, the most believable theory i’ve heard on the Kenneka Jenkins story is the organ harvesting one.”
“This Kenneka Jenkins situation is deep. People said that hotel is apart of a organ trafficking ring? This some real life Hostel shit.”
A spokesperson for the Village of Rosemont, Gary Mack said, “There are literally dozens of conspiracy theories that have been offered and countless people who are attempting to play detective and solve the case as to what happened over there.”
Mack added, “Our police officers are leaving no stone unturned as far as trying to put all the pieces together.”
Tereasa Martin had earlier said, “If they (police) had taken me seriously and checked right away, they could have found my daughter much sooner and she might have been alive.” She criticized the police. According to Jenkins’ mother, someone at Rosemont hotel had killed Jenkins.
“They think that she walked into a cooler, intoxicated, barely able to hold herself up,” Martin said regarding the authorities. She added, “I believe it was foul play involved.”
She earlier said, “It’s something that no one could ever imagine. It’s unbelievable.”
