"I cannot answer any questions related to the investigation."
Last week, news broke that a dead body was identified and recovered in the home of New York Giants' defensive back Janoris Jenkins. We went on to learn the identity of deceased person as a friend of 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 professional football player has reached out to express his sympathies, using Instagram as a the preferred platform for an official statement on the matter.
Without expressing the apparent family connection in the case, Janoris expressed the "regret and sadness" of losing "a good friend of 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 of commenting on the investigation itself, offering 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 of strangulation or suffocation.
