“[Police] are leaving no stone unturned as far as trying to corral everyone they can, and talk to them and interview them about what happened and what was going on that night,” spokesman for Rosemont village, Gary Mack, said.

Ms Jenkins’ mother Tereasa Martin said she believes someone in the hotel "killed her child."

The office of the medical examiner are awaiting the results of a toxicology test.
