The remains of a former model whose killing set off an international manhunt for a reality television star were so badly mutilated that investigators had to use the serial numbers on her breast implants to identify her.
The man charged with Jasmine Fiore's murder, reality TV show contestant Ryan Alexander Jenkins, has been on the run since reporting her missing the evening of Aug. 15. Her nude body had been found that morning, stuffed in a bloodstained suitcase in a trash bin in Buena Park , an Orange County city about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles , but authorities wouldn't be able to identify her for a few more days, The Associated Press reports.
According to TMZ, Ryan Jenkins may be headed to a small island off of Honduras called Roatan. Jenkins father, Dan, has connections to the island. Dan Jenkins just so happens to own a private jet.
Ryan Jenkins is accused of strangling Jasmine Fiore. Jenkins allegedly removed all of her teeth and fingers after he murdered her. Police were able to identify Jasmine Fiore because of the serial numbers on her breast implants.
Two years ago, Calgary real estate executive Ryan Alexander Jenkins was sentenced to 15 months' probation and ordered to complete domestic violence counseling after hitting his then-girlfriend.
But Jenkins came to Los Angeles and was selected as a contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," on which wealthy men compete for the love of a young woman. Now Jenkins is wanted in the slaying of his ex-wife, model Jasmine Fiore, and "Megan Wants a Millionaire" has been abruptly pulled off the air by VH1.
The case raises questions about how a man with a record of domestic violence got onto a show on which the object is to marry a woman, reports The Los Angeles Times.
