The mother of a woman who was found dead in a suburban Chicago hotel freezer is suing the hotel, its security company and the restaurant that may have been leasing the space where the 19-year-old was found.
Surveillance video showed Jenkins wandering alone through a kitchen area near the freezer.
Relatives and friends questioned whether she was the victim of foul play, but police said her death from hypothermia was an accident.
The lawsuit says the defendants were negligent because they didn't secure the walk-in freezer or conduct a proper search when Jenkins went missing.
A hotel spokesperson wasn't immediately available to comment Friday.
