    The Horrible Truth About The Death Of Kenneka Jenkins – New Details Emerge

    The tragic death of Kenneka Jenkins has provided more questions than answers.

    Now, new details have emerged about the mysterious death of the 19-year-old woman found inside the freezer of a four-star hotel.

    Jenkins was found lying face down on her side, with one shoe off inside the walk-in freezer of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois. 

    She had no visible injuries, except for a small cut on her foot. Authorities say that Kenneka’s mother refused to let them analyze her late daughter’s phone.

    Earlier this month, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s autopsy report showed that Kenneka Jenkins died from accidental hypothermia.

    TMZ

    Jenkins death spun numerous conspiracy theories. Some believe the teen was either murdered or there is a police cover up. 

    The kitchen were Kenneka was found was equipped with a motion-activated camera. However, it had not been turned on until Jenkins’ body was found on September 10.  

    On Friday, police released dozens of reports and witness statements filed in the case.

    Police records show that Kenneka’s mother, Tereasa Martin, twice refused to allow investigators to conduct a forensic analysis of her daughter’s phone.

    Martin insisted that she had looked through its contents herself and found nothing suspicious. 

    Friends who attended the party at the hotel with Jenkins reported getting death threats from people who suspected them of harming her. 

    One of the partygoers said the harassment had been so bad she was forced to relocate to another city.

    A toxicology screening found evidence that Kenneka Jenkins had used alcohol and topiramate, a prescription migraine and epilepsy medication.

    Topiramate can cause drowsiness and confusion, but no illegal narcotics were found in her system.

    Jenkins’ mother said her daughter had not been prescribed any medications.

    The victim’s friends reported seeing her drink cognac at the party. Kenneka’s blood alcohol level was found to be above the legal limit for driving in Illinois.

    Surveillance video was released showing Jenkins stumbling around the hallways and kitchen of the hotel.

    Video shows the teen leaving the elevator alone at 3.20am then struggling to maintain balance as she navigates the hallways.

    She was at the hotel the night of September 8 for a party with friends on the ninth floor. Jenkins was officially reported missing on the next day at 1pm and found dead in the freezer September 10 at 1am.

    Though footage doesn’t show the moment Jenkins enters the freezer, authorities believe she did when she walked out of the frame.

    But Kenneka’ family’s lawyer have confirmed that they will be seeking their own investigation and perhaps a second autopsy. 

    Attorney Larry Rogers said the hotel ‘never checked. They never searched, they never did anything while a young, 19-year-old disoriented girl was sitting in their freezer.’ 

    ‘Now there has to be an answer to how that happened. Better yet, there has to be an answer to why that happened.’

    Her mother Tereasa Martin said: ‘To me, I feel like they helped kill my child: the police department and this hotel.’

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    Ariana Austin has just had the wedding of MY dreams!

    Austin’s fairytale began when she met Ethiopian prince, Joel Makonnen, in a Washington nightclub. 

    After 12 years together, last month Ariana married into the royal family of Ethiopia. Makonnen is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie I, the last emperor of Ethiopia. 

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    Makonnen, 35, told the New York Times that he hit on his future bride and her friend using a cheesy chat-up line. 

    ‘I said, ‘You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire,’ or whatever the gin was,’ Makonnen recalled.  

    Makonnen says he immediately knew he wanted to date Austin, 33. 

    ‘Not even five minutes later I said, ‘You’re going to be my girlfriend,” he said. 

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    As Makonnen and Austin started to fall for each other, he initially held back on his royal heritage. But eventually, as they became serious, the truth came out.

    But instead of feeling overwhelmed, Austin became fascinated. 

    Makonnen, who is also a qualified lawyer, has a family history that traces back to the Biblical King Solomon and Queen of Sheba. 

    ‘It’s unbeatable heritage and history,’ Austin said. ‘It combines sheer black power and ancient Christian tradition.’

    The two married last month in an elaborate Ethiopian Orthodox Christian wedding involving 13 priests in Temple Hills, Maryland. 

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    The bride and groom both wore crowns and capes in the magical ceremony,

    While Austin may not have royal blood in her background, she does come from an African American/Guyanese family. Her maternal grandfather was lord mayor of Georgetown, the capital of Guyana. 

    Before the ceremony the couple hosted a formal reception at Foxchase Manor in Manassas, Virginia. Three hundred and seven guests dined on platters of Ethiopian food and pre-boxed slices of Guyanese black cake.

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    When Makonnen and Austin began dating, Makonnen was an undergraduate at American University. 

    After Makonnen graduated in 2006, the couple began a long distance relationship after Makonnen took a six-month internship in France. 

    American Woman Marries Ethiopian Prince In Lavish Wedding, 12 Years After Meeting In A Washington Nightclub

    Austin went to be with her future husband in Paris the next year.

    In 2008 Makonnen went back to Ethiopia to start a organization with his uncle to help Ethiopian youth. 

    In 2012, Austin returned to the U.S. to get a master’s degree in arts education at Harvard.

    After both of their hectic schedules collided the two decided to take a break that year.

    But they were back together again by Valentine’s Day 2014, when Makonnen popped the question with an princess-cut diamond ring.

    The two moved in together after the wedding, and are living in the Washington, DC area. 

    Makonnen works in the legal department at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical. His new wife works in philanthropy at the Executives Alliance for Boys and Men of Color.

    White House Photographer Reveals Her Favorite Photos Of Former First Lady Michelle Obama

    Michelle Obama as First Lady, to me, and so many others was truly the epitome of class and style.

    Now a White House photographer has shared what it was really like behind the scenes covering Michelle Obama

    For four years, Amanda Lucidon was the only female photographer on the White House staff. She was given the awesome privilege of taking photos of the then-First Lady.

    White House Photographer Reveals Her Favorite Photos Of Former First Lady Michelle Obama

    Now Lucidon, 38, has shared personal reflections in a new book, ‘Chasing Light’. The book is a collection of about 150 candid photographs of the former first family. 

    The book is filled with images of Michelle Obama, 53, both in public and private moments. Several candid photos show Michelle during trips to Cambodia and Japan.

    Lucidon traveled to 20 countries and numerous US cities with the then-First Lady’s team. 

    ‘She taught me so many things, but if I had to identify things that I visit in my daily life, one thing was to be fearless because fear can stop us a lot of times to reaching new heights and possibilities,’ Lucidon told Good Morning America

    White House Photographer Reveals Her Favorite Photos Of Former First Lady Michelle Obama

    To make sure she was always on time and never late, Lucidon adopted a mantra: The motorcade only waits for one person…and it’s never you.’

    She added: ‘Working at the White House was a very transformative time for me. I found confidence. I learned about myself. I learned about pushing boundaries. I learned about embracing my own story and my own background.’

    ‘The first lady always taught us the challenges that you’ve encountered in your life are actually your strengths. They’re not your weaknesses. They’re the things that teach you resilience.’

    Girl, 9, Dies After Woman Weighing 325lbs Sits On Her For TWELVE MINUTES As Punishment

    As kids we hated ‘time out’ or being grounded. But as we grow, we soon realize how important it is to take responsibility for our actions.

    But this right here – this is straight up child abuse!

    A 64-year-old woman weighing 325lbs sat on a 9-year-old girl as punishment, causing her death. 

    Veronica Green Posey, 64, was arrested and charged with cruelty toward a child and homicide for the death of Dericka Lindsay from Pensacola, Florida on Saturday. 

    Girl, 9, Dies After Woman Weighing 325lbs Sits On Her For TWELVE MINUTES As Punishment

    Paramedics responded to a cardiac arrest call at 1.35 pm where they found the young girl unresponsive. Dericka was rushed to Baptist Hospital but she was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.

    Posey allegedly told authorities that she sat on the small child ‘for being out of control.’ The police report states that Dericka pleaded with the adults in her home that she couldn’t breathe.

    When Posey finally stood up, she tried to do CPR on the lifeless body and called 911.  

    Other family members Grace Joan Smith, 69, and James Edmund Smith, 62, were charged with child neglect for failing to act on the abuse. Grace was also charged with cruelty toward a child. 

    Girl, 9, Dies After Woman Weighing 325lbs Sits On Her For TWELVE MINUTES As Punishment

    In the report, the Smiths were listed as Dericka’s parents while Posey was listed as their niece. 

    Poset was allegedly called by Grace Smith to discipline the girl. Smith told police that Posey struck Dericka with a ruler and metal pipe before the girl was able to run to an armchair.

    In James Smith’s arrest report, Posey was then said to have sat on the girl for close to 10 minutes before Dericka voiced that she could not breathe.

    He would tell the deputy that the woman sat on Dericka for two more minutes and found the child unresponsive when she stood up.
