The news that a dead body was found at the New Jersey home of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has come with few official details.

However, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that police are investigating a possible strangulation or suffocation as the cause of death.

Police have not released the name of the deceased, as the next of kin has not been notified. It is unclear whether police believe it was a homicide, a suicide or an accident.

Jenkins was reportedly away in Florida when a worker at the house discovered the body.

  1. Sooo… I’m guessing he let his friends use his house and this is what happened as a result? Either that or he’s a murderer who doesn’t bother to hide his bodies.

    No, Hernandez at least knew not to bring them home.

    Unless they were found hanging, strangulation and/or suffocation USUALLY implies homicide

    A bunch of Columbo’s up there.

  4. Well … Depending on the coroner’s conclusion as to the time of death and the time that dude left his home it’s going to be iffy. Sure hope he has proof of whatever he claims. The other thing? Cops are going to look at the relationship and history (if any) of the deceased and Janoris. Off the rip tho’? This could be one huge mess that won’t easily be put to bed. Yikes!

  5. Good news for the Giants: the Supplemental Draft has some cornerbacks in it. Of course, these cornerbacks are in the Supplemental Draft because they have character issues – i.e., they have skeletons in their closets … or in their basements, perhaps.

    There are “games” adults play privately… sometimes games = bad outcomes

  7. Knowing the way things work in the NFL, he will probably get a 4 game suspension appealed down to a 2 game suspension, then the league will appeal that decrease which means it will get pushed back until 2019. Then he will fight it for half that season while playing and then he will go to jail for 10 yrs, get out in 6 for good behavior and then continue his suspension appeal from there

  8. Also a story about someone claiming to be Jenkins’ brother causing a flight to be delayed as he headed from Newark to Fort Lauderdale. Strange timing…

  9. They’re saying someone killed him and that it wasn’t an accident or overdose. Not looking good for Jenkins Pats fans know what it’s like when someone on the team we root for turns out to be Ted Bundy.

  10. Interesting that there is no mention of a time of death. I get Jenkins is in Florida but was he in Florida at time of death? OJ Simpson wants to know…he’s in Chicago

  11. Didn’t the previous post say it was a descendant of the homeowner? I hope you guys aren’t talking like this over a tragic accident involving one of his children… smarten up internet

  12. Mark Geragos is probably wondering how he will keep his Colin and Reid’s case relevant now.

  13. Possible serial killer but plays for the Giants so the nfl front office will just carefully monitor the situation then suspend someone on the Patriots or Cowboys for Creatine instead

    Guy broke in and got caught on something that choked him out

    Come on man…..spoiler alert!

  15. So his brother goes to the airport, causes a big scene that lets everyone know that Janoris is in Florida right now? I’d start with the brother as a suspect or at least he knows who it is.

  16. I guess add “Do not accumulate dead bodies in your basement” to the list of things NFL players should avoid doing in the off-season.

  17. NJ/Fl connections
    Whack Teamster chief Hoffa. Bury in dump. Build stadium on top of dump
    Whack person probably in N.J. house. Use Uber driver to Florida.
    Uber driver in Florida, beat up and mugged and ??? by three football players in Florida.

    Like with the Pats, or the Panthers, this would not be any reflection on the Giants nor their fault. They would be just as blindsided as everyone else.

    I know the NFLPA has a class all players take that advises them of things to stay away from doing.

  20. My beloved Giants are in trouble once again. The old crew in Jefferson Township has been so disappointed by the team. If it isn’t Josh Brown, it’s Luke Petitgout or Will Hill. If it isn’t Christian Peter, it’s Janoris Jenkins or Plaxico Burress. If it isn’t Mark Ingram (Sr.), it’s Dave Meggett or Steve Mara (son of Wellington). There’s always someone in trouble, causing trouble, associating with trouble.

    Things haven’t been the same for the Giants since all-time class act Tiki Barber retired. It wasn’t enough for him to lead the Giants to one Super Bowl victory, he led them to two. Eli Manning would never have made it off the bench without Tiki to teach him how to play and to shield him from the New York media.

    The Eli Manning era ended in disappointment. So too the Ryan Nassib and Davis Web eras. The Kyle Laulette era is not starting well. I don’t think 8-8 is possible for the next 5 years.

    Pats have been told for years that the Pats ignored Hernandez’s channeling Tony Montana.

    i have said it for years and years: Hernandez was not the first nor last, but since the haters make a hobby out of being jealous of the Pats, want to make it seem unique when all of these cases are just simply sad.

    Even the Sean Taylor thing with him laying
    in his offseason home on a bye week with a
    machete and his dad is a cop. That always smelled to me.

    Sad, though

  23. Lisa Friel just finished her investigation on the Jenkins dead body incident and found no wrong doing and recommends Jenkins not be suspended.

    Well, if you have watched the NFL the last 20 years, it’s become the national felons league. The pft arrest meter. Every season brings in some new way an nfl player gets into trouble.

    It does make me wonder why I watch the nfl anymore. 50% of it is either crimes or politics.

  25. They’re now reporting that the deceased was a family friend living at the residence. Since I’m a super genius, I believe Janoris Jenkins’ brother should be the number one suspect. Dude was in panic mode because he knows what happened.

  26. From ESPN:
    Jenkins has been advised by attorneys to remain in Florida, sources said.

    Not that’d he’d be in any hurry to run back to that house but why would his attorneys advise him to stay in Florida? Meh, probably to avoid the media circus

  27. GIANTGATE!!! Has anyone seen LT lately?? He’s been awfully quiet. Don’t worry Mara and his old chum lying ROG will sweep another Giant scandal under the rug!!!

    Mara will demand Goodell frame a Pats player to deflect from
    his murdering CB

    —————

    So someone’s father, son, husband or brother gets murdered and you’re thinking how it’ll affect the pats? Stay classy.

  29. This most stunning information in this article is that Janoris doesn’t have an apostrophe in his name

  30. So how will Proliberaltalk blame Trump the Police and social injustice for this.. To be continued!

  31. Family friend who lived there. In the basement. If strangulation there will be signs on the neck or of a struggle. I’m leaning toward suffocation, maybe CO poisoning. Carbon monoxide is heavier than air and settles in lower spaces. If no carbon monoxide detector he would have no idea he was slowly losing consciousness and eventually suffocating.

    Just a matter of time till the left blames Trump on this too.

    Ironic that the only two comments with his name in it are from people trying to bash the Left. No one is “blaming” him as both posts allege.

    Project much?

  33. wow- just wow- a person is dead, likely murdered, and most of y’all are just joking about it. This society has become such garbage, that these are ‘normal’ events, and people laugh about it? You have become so numb to everything, it is truly shameful- regardless of trump/libby what the eff ever, y’all have collectively lost your sense of right and wrong All major empires have fallen, and the US of A is in the midst of it’s fall, the debauchery, hatred, insensitivity and general lack of morality is truly appalling, should be ashamed of yourselves, but I know you are not, and I will get a bunch of thumbs downs. Good luck to your children, you are doing nothing to make the word a better place for them.

    Well said. I will probably watch a lot less or stop altogether when Belichick hangs it up as coach and GM.

  35. Asphyxiation is a sexual fetish. Some people derive pleasure from being asphyxiated. In many cases, it goes too far — much like accidental drug overdises.

  36. Don’t particularly care for this dude, but those of you with the sneid remarks are off base this early. Innocent until proven guilty regardless of race, religion, creed or previous issues. How do any of us know that he was doing anything but training and maybe vacationing? It is wrong to speculate, period. Are there questions? Yup. Let them be asked by those who are trained to do so. Until there are charges, let it ride. How would you like to be judged before you even had a chance to prove your own innocence. None of know if he is guilty or not. Could he be? Absolutely. Could he not be? Absolutely. Just because he owns the house, doesn’t mean he did anything. For all any of you know, he was at the gym/training facility, eating well, going to bed early and chasing Momma around the kitchen table a few times. From the sounds of things, his brother needs to fess up about what he knows. Don’t jump to conclusions. It isn’t fair to anyone, period.

  37. This tweet by Dianna Russini puts a cherry on things:

    Also last night in NJ, a man claiming to be Janoris Jenkins’ brother was on a Jet Blue flight to Fort Lauderdale from Newark to allegedly meet up with Janoris. The man caused delays because he was too scared to fly according to witnesses I spoke to. He got off the plane #giants

    Good to see the whole team on board with passing on QBs this year and going all in on 2018. Smooth sailing so far.

  38. So does this mean the lady that’s a Giants season ticket holder with a room of her house literally painted red and blue and decorated with Giants memorabilia will get another call to totally impartially handle the league investigation and punishment, like she did with Josh Brown? Look her up, she exists…

    I guess you just couldn’t bring yourself to typing; If it isn’t(fill in the blank) it’s Eli Manning. Unless of course that’s what you meant by the Manning era ending in disappointment.

  40. There mustbea special prosecutor and a congressional hearing and investigation. That’s just how things are done these days.
