Giants Tell Janoris Jenkins to Stay in Florida During Murder Investigation

The New York Giants told Pro Bowl cornerback Janoris Jenkins to stay in Florida while authorities investigate the homicide of a “family friend” at his Fair Lawn, N.J. home. Jenkins has been in his native state of Florida since the team broke for the summer several weeks ago and is not due back until July 25 when the Giants begins their annual training camp.

Roosevelt Rene, a music producer who went by the hip-hop monicker Tripp Beats, was found dead in Jenkins’ rented home on Tuesday. According to sources, Rene’s death was caused by “strangulation or suffocation”.

From Pro Football Talk:

“Janoris wanted to get back to New Jersey but the New York Giants and the attorneys have told him to stay in Florida at this point as police continue to investigate,” ESPN’s Diana Russini said.

So why would the Giants and Jenkins’ attorneys tell Jenkins not to come back to New Jersey to participate in the investigation? Even if Jenkins isn’t and will never be a suspect, he could provide useful information regarding the other people who may have had access to the house. And if police become determined to talk to Jenkins, the fact that he’s in Florida most likely won’t keep that from happening — especially since he’ll be returning to New Jersey in roughly a month for training camp.

An autopsy on Rene’s body will be performed on Wednesday. The Giants are said to be “monitoring the situation” and the police have released few details on a motive or if there were any persons of interest they were eyeing in the homicide.

UPDATE – Jenkins’ Brother Charged in Family Friend’s Death
