The body of Jasmine Fiore, a former swimsuit model seen here in a 2006 Lingerie Bowl promotional photo, was found Aug. 15, 2009, in Buena Park, Calif. Prosecutors said she and her ex-husband Ryan Jenkins, a contestant on the now-canceled VH1 show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," checked into a San Diego hotel on Aug. 13, and Jenkins checked out the next morning. Fiore was not seen alive again.
Jasmine Fiore, 28, started her career as a swimsuit model. She also worked for the Playboy organization promoting golf events, but according to a spokeswoman, she never posed in the magazine.
The teeth and fingers of 28-year-old Jasmine Fiore, right, were removed before her naked body was stuffed into a suitcase and thrown in a California trash can around Aug. 15, 2009, according to police. A preliminary coroner's report indicated Fiore had been strangled. Police believe the killer went to such horrific lengths to impede identification of Fiore's body.
Ryan Jenkins, 32, Jasmine Fiore's ex-husband, has been charged with her murder. On Aug. 23, 2009, his body was found in a Canadian motel room. Police are saying it appears he committed suicide. Jenkins is seen here in an undated photo released by the Buena Park Police Department.
Ryan Jenkins, 32, was a contestant in the now-cancelled VH1 reality show, "Megan Wants a Millionaire." He met Jasmine Fiore shortly after filming wrapped in Las Vegas, and the two were married very quickly. Fiore later annulled the marriage after a "big blowout," according to her mother, Lisa Lepore.
Ryan Jenkins, 32, claimed he was worth $2,500,000 on VH1's show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," on which he was a contestant. Police believed he had enough resources to finance his flee from the law. There are conflicting reports as to how Jenkins made his money, but according to Jasmine Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore, he was a real estate broker.
"Jasmine was a beautiful person. She was a very caring individual. She loved her family and friends. A lot of the information you're seeing in the news is not true...she is just a beautiful person. She had a lot going for her," her former boyfriend Robert Hasman, far left, said at a press conference Aug. 20, 2009. Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore, is second from the right.
According to Jasmine Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore, her daughter gave up modeling two years ago, shut down her modeling Web site and legally changed her last name to Kinkade to separate herself from her past. Fiore is seen here in a 2006 image promoting the Bodog Lingerie Bowl.

Jasmine Fiore also planned to open a gym and personal training business with a friend, said her mother Lisa Lepore. In this photo, she appears with UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell at the Tangerine Lounge & Nightclub at the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino October 6, 2006, in Las Vegas.
Shocked friends and family, including Jasmine Fiore's mother, sobbed at a news conference Aug. 20, 2009. Her former boyfriend, Robert Hasman, begged for help in capturing Fiore's ex-husband Ryan Jenkins, who police have charged with her murder.

After a weeklong manhunt, Ryan Jenkins was found dead in a Canadian motel room of an apparent suicide. This photo taken from his MySpace page shows a fit and seemingly self-satisfied Jenkins.
Video and photos, like this one taken from Ryan Jenkins' MySpace page, seem to show Jenkins and Jasmine Fiore as a happy, carefree couple. But a darker side lurked. Police believe Jenkins murdered Fiore sometime between Aug. 13 and Aug. 15, 2009 and mutilated her body to avoid detection.
On MySpace, Ryan Jenkins posted several sexy escapades with his then-wife Jasmine Fiore. In one video, Fiore dances erotically in a nightclub and Jenkins says, "I love my [expletive] life." Police believe Jenkins murdered Fiore on or around Aug. 15, 2009 and then fled to Canada where he hung himself in a motel. This photo of happier times was taken from Jenkins' MySpace page.
Ryan Jenkins' life ended in an apparent suicide in a remote Canadian motel room, according to police. Authorities had sought the reality show contestant in the gruesome death of his ex-wife, Jasmine Fiore, whose body was so badly mutilated it had to be identified by serial numbers on her breast implants.
Now that authorities have found the body of Ryan Jenkins, who is accused of killing his ex-wife Jasmine Fiore, they're looking for someone new: the mystery woman who accompanied him to this motel. The manager of The Thunderbird said a young woman checked Jenkins in to the two-story inn surrounded by trees. Three days later, the manager and his nephew say they found him hanging from the bar of a coat rack by a belt.
