Jenkins’ mother, Teresa Martin, filed a lawsuit in 2018 against a security company hired to monitor the hotel, restaurant, and premises. The lawsuit alleged failure to prevent Jenkins from entering the freezer and timely inspection of surveillance cameras to locate her. Martin initially sought million from the companies.
In surveillance footage, Jenkins was last seen in the kitchen about an hour before her discovery, having left a party on the ninth floor. Martin sued the hotel, claiming that employees had ignored Jenkins’s “clearly disoriented and in need of help” while she was wandering the premises.
Jenkins had prescription medications for migraine and epilepsy, alcohol, and caffeine when she passed away, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. According to the case, the restaurant also failed to properly secure the freezer where Jenkins met her demise.
News of Jenkins’ disappearance was reported around 12:30 pm, and it was alleged that the police began their investigation nearly three hours later. However, Jenkins’ body was not found until 12:25 pm the next day.
