Body of Haitian-American Roosevelt Rene Found at Home of New York Giants Janoris Jenkins

Damn, now a days, you can’t even trust family with your property and expect them just to chill.

(L Union PlaceUpdate 5:20 pmAccording to Deadspin,  the Bergen County, N.J., prosecutor’s office and Fair Lawn, N.J., police have charged William Jenkins, the older brother of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, with aggravated manslaughter in relation to a dead body found at Janoris’s home. Ontario County (N.Y.) district attorney James Ritts had earlier told TMZ that the 34-year-old William Jenkins was “a person of interest” in the case, but that he was not a suspect.

TMZ obtained records showing that William Jenkins was arrested in upstate New York at 1:46 a.m. Tuesday on an “unrelated parole warrant issue.” That’s nearly nine hours before the body of 25-year-old Roosevelt Rene was discovered in the basement of Janoris’s home in Fair Lawn, some 300 miles away.

A body discovered Tuesday at a New Jersey home associated with NFL player Janoris Jenkins has been identified as a 25-year-old Haitian-American man who had been living at the residence, prosecutors said.

Roosevelt Rene was a family friend of the residents of the home in Fair Lawn, north of Newark, according to acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo.  The cause and manner of Rene’s death have yet to be determined but sources say police are investigating it as a homicide. Police are developing a theory that strangulation or suffocation may have been the cause of death, according to the NFL Network.
