A body has been found at a New Jersey home owned by New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
The Bergen County prosecutor’s office says it is investigating a death at the house in Fair Lawn, about 10 miles north of MetLife Stadium. Property records list Jenkins as the owner.
The prosecutor’s office says the dead man isn’t the house’s owner. His identity wasn’t immediately released. The office didn’t say where Jenkins was when the death occurred.
“The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Fair Lawn Police Department are investigating a death at (Jenkins’ residence),” Acting Prosecutor Dennis Calo said in a statement. “The deceased is not the owner of the residence, but the identity of the male decedent cannot be released until next of kin have been notified. The investigation is ongoing, and additional information will be provided when it is available and appropriate for release.”
A spokesman for the Giants says the team is monitoring the situation but didn’t comment further.
Jenkins played at North Alabama before being drafted in the second round by the St. Louis Rams in 2012. He played four seasons with the Rams and the last two seasons with the Giants.
