A woman was found dead in a hotel freezer. Medical examiners say it was an accident.

The death of Kenneka Jenkins, a 19-year-old woman whose body was found in a walk-in freezer at a Chicago area hotel last month, has been ruled an accident, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The teen’s cause of death was hypothermia due to cold exposure, with alcohol and topiramate intoxication as “significant” contributing factors, the office said in a statement Friday. Topiramate is a medication used to treat epilepsy and migraines; her family said Jenkins was not prescribed the drug, according to the office.

Tragic. Alcohol and prescription drugs = not good.

What an awful way to die, and to find out a child passed away. So sad. Very preventable though...

Freezers generally have a release with instructions that glows in the dark.

These were standard 25 years ago when I worked in one. You just pushed on a glowing handle and the door popped open immediately.

Also, I'm surprised just 24 hours at 34 degrees would kill a person. But what the heck do I know.

This freezer had a way to open it according to the article. But, it would help if the person was not wacked out. She may have passed out, hastening her temperature drop. I saw a video of her walking through the kitchen. Not stumbling, but very shaky. If anyone is found culpable, I hope they get their justice.
