Despite frequent demands from family and protesters for the hotel to release footage of Kenneka Jenkins walking into to the freezer, no videos will be released because those videos do not exist, reported CBS Chicago.

A spokesperson for the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel & Conference Center where the 19-year-old’s body was found told CBS Chicago there is no surveillance camera focused on the freezer.  

Attorneys for Jenkins' family toured the hotel Tuesday wherein they discovered no camera trained to the freezer.

Jenkins, whose body was found on September 10, went missing after attending a party at the hotel. Although the family and others have cried foul play, police said it appears the teen walked into the freezer on her own and her death was classified as noncriminal.

On Tuesday, friends and family members gathered for another demonstration at the hotel during which they demanded the FBI take over the investigation. Tereasa Martin, Jenkins’ mother, will not be satisfied until she sees proof of her daughter walking into the freezer.  

"I want to see her literally, actually walking into this freezer," Martin said last week when other footage from the hotel was released.

Surveillance footage from the hotel was released to the public last week. The footage appears to show Jenkins stumbling through the hotel and wandering through the kitchen.
