Ryan Jenkins, Suspected in Fiore Murder, Found Hanged in British Columbia
In case you were wondering about Ryan Jenkins, the reality show contestant accused of murdering and mutilating his Playboy model wife Jasmine Fiore, wonder no more -- he's dead. The semi-star of Megan Wants a Millionaire -- in which he was so successful VH1 scheduled him for another show, I Love Money -- was found in the Thunderbird Motel in Hope, British Columbia, hanging from the bar of a clothing rack. He is presumed a suicide pending further investigation. A young woman apparently booked the room for him on Thursday and has since vanished -- police are looking into it. Fiore's body was found on August 15th in a suitcase in a dumpster at Buena Park, California, with her teeth and fingers missing in the manner of victims in the David Cronenberg film Eastern Promises ("Now I'm going to do his teeth and cut off his fingers. You might want to leave room"). Local police still think Jenkins was the only person involved in her murder.
