According to published reports, the body found at the New Jersey home of Janoris Jenkins has been identified. Police said Roosevelt Rene, 25, was the victim, and a homicide investigation has begun.

UPDATE - Fair Lawn police and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s office have announced that Jenkins’ brother is being charged with aggravated manslaughter.

Jenkins, a star cornerback for the Giants, has been in Florida and has apparently not been at the home since the Giants ended mandatory mini-camp on June 14.

One neighbor of Jenkins told the New York Post that the Giants star “had always been a good neighbor” and another called the development at the home “surprising.”

Per NJ.com, the Giants “are aware of and monitoring the situation.”

Reports also indicated that Jenkins rented the home in Fair Lawn and often allowed friends to stay there when he wasn’t using it.
