While the details were sketchy, we reported yesterday on the murder of Howard Stern regular, Playboy model and Vegas stripper Jasmine Fiore. Reports yesterday stated that police are pointing to her husband Ryan Alexander Jenkins as the perpetrator. According to Celebitchy, last Saturday Jasmine's body was found strangled and stuffed in a suitcase in Orange County, California. Celebrity Love: Did Reality Show Reject Murder Jasmine Fiore?
Jenkins was a finalist kicked off VH1's Megan Wants A Millionaire by notorious gold-digger Megan Hauserman. The show finished taping last March, right around the period when he married Jasmine Fiore. As we follow the story, it sounds as though he was filming another VH1 money-related reality show, I Love Money Season 3 in Mexico until four weeks ago. He was under the radar until last Saturday morning, when from Buena Park he reported Jasmine missing then presumably fled town. Police believe he may have taken off to his hometown of Calgary, Canada.
Another key clue they've discovered suggests their marriage was on the rocks. Jasmine was texting back-and-forth with an ex on the night when she was murdered. She and Jenkins were in San Diego for a poker tournament when she reportedly texted her recent ex Robert Hasman saying she planned to fly to Vegas to meet him. In another text sent from her phone were the words, "suck it," which police believe Jenkins may have sent to Hasman. It's presumable that Jasmine and Hasman were in contact when Jenkins was in Mexico filming.
VH1 has pulled Megan Wants A Millionaire, which debuted August 2, from the air. The network said in a statement, "This is a tragic situation and our thoughts go out to the victim’s family.”
