Just under 24 hours ago, news broke that a dead body had been found at the New Jersey home of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Police are currently investigating the incident as a homicide.
Late Tuesday night, the identity of the victim was revealed by officials. According to a report from NBC New York, the victim was a 25-year-old male identified as Roosevelt Rene, a friend of Janoris Jenkins.
Officials revealed that Rene had been living in the house recently.
On Wednesday morning, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that the police have now identified a "person of interest" in the case.
Initial reports stated that police were investigating a potential strangulation/suffocation as the cause of death. Anderson went on to say that cause of death was "highly suspicious" but there is not clear-cut explanation yet.
The Giants star was reportedly in Florida this week and has not been at the New Jersey residence.
More details to come.
