Model and Playboy representative Jasmine Fiore, who had been missing since Friday night, August 15, 2009, was found stuffed in a suitcase and left in a dumpster in Los Angeles, California, and the “person of interest” is a man who vied for the interest of Megan Hauserman on VH1’s Megan Wants a Millionaire.
28-year-old Jasmine went missing at 8:30 p.m. Friday night and her body was found 7:00 a.m. the next morning. Her body was not identified until today. Ryan Alexander Jenkins reported her missing Saturday night, and police have since been unable to contact him. He is presumably on the run.
Megan Wants a Millionaire was still airing at the time of the murder, and as of last week Ryan Jenkins was still in the running. Supposedly, Jenkins got far into the competition, but didn’t take it well when Megan Hauserman ultimately rejected him. Megan told TMZ that after being eliminated from the show Jenkins went to Las Vegas where he met and married Jasmine Fiore. Hauserman describes him as “smart” and “nice.” Last Sunday on MWAM, Ryan Jenkins won a one-on-one date with Megan. He seemed smooth and distant, but not as off-balance as some of the other guys on the show.
Jasmine had recently changed her name from Kincaid to Fiore, dyed her hair black and was working as a model at Las Vegas hotels. Jenkins was the last known person to see her alive.
