The death of 25-year-old Roosevelt Rene is being investigated as a homicide, according to ABC/ESPN.
The story regarding the discovery of Rene’s body was covered on Wednesday morning by ABC’s Good Morning America. And even though no accusations of any kind have been made against Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who rents the house where Rene was found, the report included a quote that seems odd at best, ominous at worst.
Via NorthJersey.com, Rene was a music producer and artist, who went by the name Trypps Beatz. He produced music, per NorthJersey.com, for Gucci Mane, Playboi Carti, Kodak Black, and Curren$y.
The league promptly initiated a comprehensive investigation that included interviews with several persons, including the driver, Winston and others with relevant information. The league also examined an extensive amount of other evidence, including telephone records, business records, data from electronic devices and other communications. Based on the investigation, the NFL found that Winston had violated the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, which allows for discipline to be imposed even when criminal charges are not presented.
While the statement does not delve into the specifics, it explains that Winston violated the Personal Conduct Policy by touching the driver in an inappropriate and sexual manner without her consent and that disciplinary action was necessary and appropriate.
