Janoris Jenkins Issues Statement On Death Of Friend In New Jersey Residence
Last week, news broke that a dead body was identified and recovered in the home New York Giants' defensive back Janoris Jenkins. We went on to learn the identity deceased person as a friend the Jenkins' family, Roosevelt Rene. Janoris' brother William Jenkins was then charged with aggravated manslaughter in connection with Rene's death.
Janoris was back home in Florida when the body was recovered in his New Jersey home, a mere two weeks after New York Giants' minicamp. For the first time since Roosevelt's untimely passing, the pressional football player has reached out to express his sympathies, using Instagram as a the preferred platform for an ficial statement on the matter.
Without expressing the apparent family connection in the case, Janoris expressed the "regret and sadness" losing "a good friend mine Roosevelt Rene a.k.a. Trypps Beats." Jenkins then provided reasoning for his temporary visitation by alluding to a musical project the two were working on. Jenkins stopped short commenting on the investigation itself, fering in its place, prayers to "Rene and his family."
Local Police and The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office believe Roosevelt Rene's death to be a possible case strangulation or suffocation.
