Canadian police seek reality TV contestant charged with murder of ex-wife Module body

Thu Aug 20, 7:00 PM

By Shannon Montgomery, The Canadian Press


CALGARY - California prosecutors have charged a former reality television contestant with the murder of his ex-wife and Canadian authorities are searching for him after signs he may have illegally slipped across the border and disappeared.

District attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami said one count of murder was filed against Ryan Jenkins on Thursday afternoon in the death of former model Jasmine Fiore, 28. Her nude body was found stuffed in a suitcase in a trash bin in California last weekend.

Police had previously called the 32-year-old Jenkins, a Calgary native who was briefly married to Fiore, a "person of interest" in the case and said they just wanted to talk to him.

Border officials and police agencies across Canada were on the lookout for Jenkins after U.S. officials suggested he may have fled more than 1,600 kilometres from southern California to sneak back into the country.

Federal Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan said reports Jenkins had crossed the border were unconfirmed, but police were watching for him.

"The Canadian Border Services Agency does work very closely with law enforcement partners both here in Canada and across the border (and) they are well aware of the particular case," he said.

"I know that at a local level here and at a provincial level across Canada, police forces are on the lookout with the potential that he might be in this country."

Jenkins was a contestant on the VH1 reality TV show "Megan Wants a Millionaire" before marrying Fiore. Her death followed by his disappearance has sparked a media frenzy south of the border, with gossip website TMZ publishing a saccharine love note allegedly between the couple and minute-by-minute updates of the investigation.

A sheriff's office in northwest Washington said deputies received word Wednesday that Jenkins could have made his way to Canada. His car and an empty boat trailer were found at a marina in Blaine, just south of Vancouver.

They also had a report that a man matching his description arrived by boat at Point Roberts, U.S. territory about 16 kilometres and at the tip of a peninsula that can only be reached by land from Canada.

Authorities said they believed that Jenkins crossed the border on foot after landing at Point Roberts.

Radio station CKNW reported that Jenkins's mother lives in Vancouver. Quoting a family friend, the station reported she went to meet Jenkins in Seattle on Wednesday, saying it was a family emergency.

The station also reported that Jenkins's mother refused to comment.

Const. Sharlene Brooks of the Delta, B.C., police, whose jurisdiction includes the Canada-U.S. border area south of Vancouver, said her department had been asked to watch for the fugitive.

"It's not confirmed that he in fact has entered Canada but if he has done so it was not through legitimate means," Brooks said.

The border between Washington and British Columbia around Blaine is hard to monitor, especially along waterways dotted with islands, said Benjamin Muller, a border expert at King's University College in Ontario, who is very familiar with the area.

"I've talked to RCMP in the region and there's all sorts of systems they have to try and monitor the movements on the waters there, and it's exceptionally difficult," he said.

The area is known for marijuana and gun smuggling between the two countries, he said.

He added in most regions of Canada, it would be very hard to slip across the border on land without some kind of alarm bells being set off.

"However, on the other side of it, in that region, on the B.C. side of the Washington coast, particularly on the waterways, there's pretty free movement and there's just been an understanding and there hasn't been an enormous amount of problems associated with that."

Acting Calgary police Chief Al Redford said officers in Jenkins's home town were also working with other law enforcement agencies and looking for tips.

"Our fugitive apprehension detail is currently on the hunt checking connections, associates, doing backgrounding, that sort of thing," he said.

Fiore was last seen alive with Jenkins at a poker game in San Diego. Jenkins cut off contact with police after reported her missing Saturday night to the Los Angeles County sheriff's department, police said.

It's still not clear how Fiore died, although a preliminary coroner's report indicated she was strangled.

Fiore's mother has said that in March, after taping for the VH1 series finished, Jenkins met Fiore in a Las Vegas casino and the two were married soon after. But Lisa Lepore said "they had a big blowout" in May and Fiore had the marriage annulled.

A friend from Calgary who has known Jenkins for about five years, said they last spoke in the late spring, shortly after Jenkins met Fiore.

"He said, 'I met this amazing girl and we have a lot in common and we're going to get married,"' said the friend, who didn't want to give his name due to the immense publicity the case has attracted.

"He said they just clicked and things were awesome."

The friend said he was shocked to hear Jenkins could be at all connected to the case, saying he was an "energetic individual, always a lot of fun."

"In the years that I've known him and got to spend time with him, he's never shown any aggression or anger, he's just always a positive guy."

Court records show that Jenkins was charged in June in Clark County, Nev., with a misdemeanour count of "battery constituting domestic violence" on accusations that he hit Fiore in the arm. He is scheduled for a Dec. 18 non-jury trial.

Court documents from Calgary also show Jenkins was charged with assaulting a woman in July 2005. He was given a conditional discharge with 15 months probation and ordered not to have contact with the woman. There were reports that she was his girlfriend at the time.

Jenkins, variously described as an architect, real estate developer and investment banker, appeared in three episodes of the series "Megan Wants a Millionaire" about a woman seeking to land a wealthy bachelor by putting suitors through their paces, such as designing a marketing campaign for her pet chihuahua.

I just read that he was the winner of I Love Money 3 which will now never be aired. At least this tells us that Megan didn't choose him at the end. Maybe she isn't as dumb as she seems to like to appear to be.

Wow. That really sucks. Is he still on the Megan show--meaning Megan hasn't sent him packing yet? I haven't watched this show, but obviously it's getting publicity b/c of this guy.

I went to wikipedia... they said that he reportedly wanted his money early too. Lacey and Cocktail are reportedly both contestants on the third season... and according to wiki, Lacey said they would not air season 3 and Cocktail said they would air it but with ryan edited out.... how that would work if he wins is beyond me. VH1 needs to do better background checks of these people.

Her teeth were also all removed and her body was messed up pretty badly. It's really sick and disturbing. I can't imagine what her final moments were like. I hope she's resting well now where ever she is. My prayers go out to her family. They must be haunted by those images of her. I don't understand how there are those out there who can be so sick and cruel. I hope they catch the bastard and fry his ass.

RCMP say murder suspect Ryan Jenkins found dead in BC motel, apparent suicide Module body

What's this

By Steve Mertl, The Canadian Press


VANCOUVER, B.C. - RCMP say fugitive murder suspect Ryan Jenkins has been found dead of an apparent suicide in a motel in Hope, B.C., about 90 minutes drive east of Vancouver.

"At this time the RCMP federal border integrity program is able to confirm that a deceased person that was found in a motel in Hope, British Columbia, is in fact Ryan Jenkins," said Sgt. Duncan Pound, spokesman for the Mounties border integrity unit.

"At this time the investigation into the circumstances of his death is continuing but preliminary evidence suggests that he took his own life."

Jenkins was found at the Thunderbird Motel in Hope and had apparently hanged himself, said Farrah Emami, spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorney's Office in California, which is contact with Canadian police. Crime scene investigators identified Jenkins through fingerprints, she said.

Hope is about 150 kilometres east of Vancouver just off the Trans-Canada Highway.

Pound said the local RCMP detachment responded to a public call Sunday afternoon about a deceased person.

They then called in investigators from the border integrity unit who were spearheading the massive manhunt for Jenkins.

The former Calgary real estate developer and reality show contestant was wanted in California on first-degree murder charges after the mutilated body of his ex-wife was found in a dumpster near Los Angeles.

Jenkins, 32, disappeared last week but his boat was found Wednesday moored at a marina not far from the U.S-Canada border south of Vancouver.

The discovery triggered a huge dragnet and many false sightings of Jenkins.

Pound said police don't yet know how long Jenkins was at the motel before his body was discovered.

He said Jenkins' next of kin have been notified.

Jenkins' mother, Nada Jenkins, lives in Vancouver, and his father, noted architect and sometime business-partner Dan Jenkins, lives in Calgary.

Pound said the B.C. Coroner's Service is now investigating and police will continue looking into the circumstances of Jenkins death and try to trace how he ended up in Hope.

RCMP only earlier Sunday had confirmed Jenkins was in Canada, citing credible information they would not disclose.

They issued an appeal for Jenkins, who U.S. authorities said was dangerous and may have had a gun, to turn himself in.

"We want to make an appeal directly to Ryan to say let's ensure that nobody gets hurt - nobody around him, nobody in the public, no police and certainly not himself," Pound said earlier Sunday.

Widespread publicity about the Jenkins manhunt triggered a wave of sightings that proved false, including a man taken off an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Toronto on Friday night and another questioned aboard a Vancouver transit bus on the weekend.

Jenkins faced first-degree murder charges in Orange County, Calif., after the discovery last week of Jasmine Fiore's naked, mutilated corpse inside a suitcase in a suburban Buena Park dumpster south of Los Angeles.

Fiore, a 28-year-old former swimsuit model, was briefly married to Jenkins earlier this year but had the union annulled. Jenkins was facing charges after allegedly hitting her.

She and Jenkins were apparently seen checking into a posh San Diego hotel but apparently that was the last time Fiore was seen alive.

Jenkins disappeared after reporting her missing around the time her body was discovered.

She had been strangled and her fingers and teeth removed. Fiore was identified using the serial numbers from her breast implants.

U.S. authorities issued an alert for Jenkins on Wednesday as a person of interest in Fiore's death.

It was the same day police in northwest Washington discovered Jenkins' SUV and boat-trailer at a boat ramp in Blaine, near the U.S.-Canadian border.

There was an unconfirmed report the U.S. Coast Guard chased his powerful speedboat, which was later found moored at a marina in Point Roberts, Wash., from where the border is an easy and unimpeded walk.

On Friday, the Orange County district attorney filed first-degree murder charges against Jenkins.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest after an extradition request from the United States Justice Department.

To facilitate extradition, the Orange County district attorney had agreed not to seek the death penalty.

Jenkins' father, noted Calgary architect Dan Jenkins, has confirmed he's spoken to police but was not asked to appeal to his son to surrender.

An exasperated Nada Jenkins, Ryan's mother, told The Canadian Press in a brief conversation that she too has been in touch with police.

"Hah! They're on my tail all day. I'm in contact with them constantly," she said before hanging up.

Pound would not say if they believe Jenkins' parents or anyone else has helped him.

"It would take probably until the concluding portion of the investigation before we were able to determine did they fully co-operate or did they do anything that might have assisted Ryan," he said.
