Brawl Between Music Producer And Brother Of NY Giants Cornerback Led To Death, Police Say
The body of Roosevelt Rene, who produced music under the name Trypps Beatz, was found in the basement of Janoris Jenkins' home.
Police say music producer Roosevelt Rene, 25, died after a fight with William H. Jenkins, Jr., the brother of NY Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Rene's body was found Tuesday in the basement of Janoris Jenkins' Fairlawn, N.J. home.
The two men, who were both living at the home at the time, got into a "physical altercation" Monday, according to an affidavit of probable cause, NJ.com reported.
Jenkins, 34, then fled the state and was later arrested by New York State Police on a parole violation, according to ESPN.
The cause of death has not yet been announced, but according to a tweet by NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, police were investigating a possible strangulation or suffocation.
Janoris Jenkins was not home at the time of the fight and has been in Florida since attending a mini-camp with the NY Giants several weeks ago, according to ESPN.
William Jenkins, who has had at least seven prior arrests and was out on parole for two felony drug convictions, was employed as a music producer at the time of the incident, ESPN reported.
He has been charged by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office with aggravated manslaughter.
Rene produced music under the name Trypps Beatz.
