Reality star Ryan Jenkins found hanged in Canadian motel
Reality TV star Ryan Alexander Jenkins, who was being sought over the murder of his model wife Jasmine Fiore, has been found dead in an apparent suicide inside a motel in Canada.
The 32-year-old was found hanging inside his room at the Thunderbird Motel in Hope near Vancouver, officials said.
According to reports, Jenkins arrived at the motel in a car with Alberta license plates. The manager of the establishment said the woman traveling with the reality star paid cash for three days. But when the couple didn’t check out, he broke into the room and found Jenkins hanging from the bar of a clothing rack. The identity and whereabouts of the woman has not been revealed.
US police have been hunting for Jenkins since the mutilated body of Fiore was found stuffed into a suitcase in a rubbish bin in Buena Park, California. Her fingers and teeth had been removed, and investigators had to identify her with the serial number on her breast implants.
Jenkins, an investment banker from Calgary, ran into Fiore, 28, at a strip club in Las Vegas. They were reportedly married 48 hours later.
UPDATE: TMZ.com is reporting that the mystery woman who allegedly helped reality TV star Ryan Jenkins get a motel room in Canada, could be Paulina Chmielecka—Jenkins’ former fiancée.
