Giants defensive back Janoris Jenkins released a statement of the death of his friend, Roosevelt Rene, at his home in New Jersey.  Jenkins brother William faces charges in connection with the death.

Via TMZ Sports:

Now, Janoris is speaking out, saying, “With regret and sadness I wish to inform the fans, and the public a good friend of mine Roosevelt Rene a.k.a. Trypps Beats was found dead at my place of residence.”

“Trypps was a good friend and we were collaborating on music production together. It truly hurts my heart to know he has passed away.”

“At the time of the incident I was in Florida preparing to finish off my promotional tour. As this is an ongoing incident, I cannot answer any questions related to the investigation.”

“I am praying for Roosevelt and his family.”

There will still be more disturbing details to come out as this thing continues to unfold.  The Giants have to be hoping Janoris isn’t somehow more involved.
