The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Fair Lawn Police Department are investigating the case. They have not released the identity of the man whose body was found but did issue a joint 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 statement said. “The investigation is ongoing and additional information will be provided when it is available and appropriate for release.”
The body was discovered by a worker in the basement of Jenkins’ luxury, six-bedroom home. Sources told TMZ Jenkins was out of state at the time the body was discovered. It has been reported Jenkins has been in his native Florida since the end of the Giants’ mandatory three-day minicamp almost two weeks ago.
