Body found in basement of Jenkins' NJ home.
A dead body was reportedly found at the New Jersey home of New York Giants' Pro Bowl cornerback Janoris Jenkins. According to TMZ, Jenkins was out of the state when the body was discovered early Tuesday morning, but he is reportedly aware of the situation.
TMZ reports that the body was discovered in the basement by a worker at the house.
“The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Fair Lawn Police Department are investigating a death at 14 Van Saun Place in Fair Lawn, New Jersey,” officials said in a statement, referencing Jenkins’ place of residence, according to the New York Post and other outlets.
“The deceased is not the owner of the residence, but the identity of the male decedent cannot be released until next of kin have been notified,” officials said. “The investigation is ongoing, and additional information will be provided when it is available and appropriate for release.”
Jenkins has reportedly been in Florida since the end of camp and was not at home when cops arrived on the scene today.
