Swimsuit Model Jasmine Fiore Murdered - Suspect Found Hung

Jasmine Kinkade (AKA Jasmine Fiore) (February 18, 1981 - August 15, 2009) from Santa Cruz, California, was a swimsuit model, events promoter, and Las Vegas socialite. Fiore had also obtained a real estate license and was about to open a gym and personal training center. Her body was discovered on August 15, 2009 strangled and stuffed into a suitcase. A former reality show contestant, Ryan Alexander Jenkins (? – August 23, 2009), was named the suspect. Jenkins was found dead in a Hope, British Columbia hotel room on August 23, 2009 of an apparent suicide.

Relationship with Ryan Jenkins
Jasmine Fiore had met Canadian-born Ryan Jenkins at a Las Vegas casino. According to court records, Jenkins was charged in June 2009 in Clark County, Nevada, with a misdemeanor count of "battery constituting domestic violence" for hitting Fiore in the arm. Jenkins was expected to go on trial in December. The pair had reconciled shortly before Fiore's death and were reportedly traveling to Las Vegas for a poker game. Fiore's mother claims that the two fought frequently and that Jenkins had been jealous of Fiore's friendships with her ex-boyfriends.

Death of Jasmine Fiore
Fiore's badly beaten and crushed body was discovered in a suitcase that was placed inside of a dumpster in Buena Park, California, about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles, on the morning of August 15, 2009. She had also been strangled. According to Buena Park police, Fiore's teeth and fingers had been removed before her nude body was stuffed into the suitcase.

Suspect Ryan Jenkins
On August 21 Jenkins arrived at the Thunderbird Motel in Hope, British Columbia in a vehicle with Alberta license plates, but stayed in the car while a young woman paid cash for 2 nights accomodation. After no one checked out on Sunday, August 23, and having noticed suspiciously little activity over the weekend, the motel manager and his nephew decided to check on the room. Jenkins was found deceased, apparently by suicide; the body was found hanging in the closet.
