Suspect in Model's Murder Led Police on Boat Chase Before Fleeing to Canada, Sources Said
Los Angeles Times ^ | August 21, 2009 | Andrew Blankstein and Ari B. Bloomekatz

Posted on 08/21/2009 7:58:17 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Ryan Alexander Jenkins, wanted in the murder of model Jasmine Fiore, led authorities on a high-speed boat chase several miles off the coast near Blaine, Wash., law enforcement sources told The Times today.

Authorities tracked Jenkins to a marina in Blaine on Wednesday night and came upon his car and empty boat trailer, the sources said, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because it was an ongoing investigation.

The engine of the car was still warm and the U.S. Coast Guard was alerted. A Coast Guard cutter came upon a speed boat several miles off the coast that was believed to belong to Jenkins. Coast Guard officials shone lights on the speed boat and began approaching, the sources said.

The speed boat then fled into Canadian waters, sources said. Authorities there were notified and chased it with a helicopter and a boat, but the speed boat crossed back into U.S. waters. The source said it was believed that Jenkins took the boat to another marina in the area, then walked into Canada.

When authorities arrived at the marina, they found fresh footprints they believed belonged to Jenkins, the sources said. Jenkins is still on the run and is now believed to be in or around British Columbia, although a spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said authorities there had not confirmed his presence.

I’m not an expert, but I think she’s had some work done.

I’ve never seen a human look more like a mannequin than this unfortunate female.

Excerpts:

According to the Vancouver Sun, Jenkins has family in the Greater Vancouver area, but it’s unknown whether that’s his destination. The Calgary Sun reported that Jenkins’ father, a well-known architect, was returning to Canada from Mexico.

(Dad is going to help out the animal that is his son.)

...

“The officers found a large bloodstained gray suitcase containing the body of a Caucasian female. The victim had been badly beaten, all of her fingers had been cut off, and all of her teeth had been forcibly removed,” prosecutors said in a statement released Thursday.”

What an ANIMAL!

Jenkins was a contestant on the VH1 reality show “Megan Wants a Millionaire,” in which wealthy men compete for the love of a young woman. He was billed on the show as an investment banker. He was also scheduled to appear on a second VH1 show, the third season of “I Love Money,” according to a source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.

DON’T THEY DO A BACKGROUND CHECK on these CONTESTANTS?

GEESH! He had a priors on ASSAULT.

I doubt there was very little that was natural about her.

She looked like a white Bratz doll.

I'm sure they do. But remember what they are looking for. They want people who act crazy and get upset at the drop of a hat. They don't care about criminal records.

What I always wonder is WHERE are the people that care about her when she was alive? Surely they can’t really believe that her “look” was attractive? This woman had major issues going on. Now that she’s dead, they all claim to love her and she was nothing short of the “wholesome girl next door”.

Yes. They do. The private firm had found nothing. The show has stopped airing.

“Yes. They do. The private firm had found nothing. The show has stopped airing.”

Here is what makes me wonder if they really do a background check:

International Manhunt for TV Contestant Charged in Swim Model’s Gruesome Murder
Friday, August 21, 2009

...

Ryan Alexander Jenkins, a Calgary, Alberta, native, was a contestant on the VH1 series “Megan Wants a Millionaire,” about a woman seeking to land a wealthy bachelor

...

Court records show that Jenkins was charged in June in Clark County, Nev., with a misdemeanor count of “battery constituting domestic violence” for allegedly hitting Fiore in the arm and will be tried in December.

Jenkins also has a criminal history in his hometown of Calgary. He was sentenced to 15 months of probation in January 2007 on an unspecified assault charge, according to the Alberta, Canada Ministry of Justice. No further details were available.

Neal Tomlinson, a partner at the law firm representing Jenkins in the Nevada case, did not return an e-mail seeking comment sent after business hours Thursday. He declined to comment earlier in the week.

Jenkins reported Fiore missing Saturday night to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, police said.

VH1 said it has postponed any future airings of the show. The statement also said that the show was an outside production licensed to VH1, but that it was produced and owned by 51 Minds Entertainment.

51 Minds said in a statement that Jenkins never would have been accepted for its show if the company had known of his past criminal history.

I didn’t read the article. My daughter read it to me. They would have to do some sort of background check as the liability issues could be a nightmare.

No, I missed it but if they said what I said, I agree!

I could hardly believe any parent would but their girls a Bratz doll.

The Bratz doll ref was almost at the start. The anonymous posters write horrible things (gut bustingly funny and mean spirited, but horrible). This poor young lady didn’t deserve her fate, but I had to concur (prior to her brutal murder), she didn’t even look like a human woman with all that cosmetic work, almost like a space alien hybrid or something. I mean a little cosmetic surgery to correct some minor flaws here and there (like, say, to correct a bump in the nose), but you just wonder why someone would deliberately wish to make themselves look like that... scary. (And for the record, I do hope they fry the bastard who killed her)

It does not matter how she looked, I have a hard time thinking of anyone who deserves to be brutally slaughtered and left in a suitcase... looks just don't enter into it, good bad, or indifferent.

Thanks!

I'll have to look up the thread.

It's awful - what it's doing to young girls. This image of HUGE boob and exaggerated feminine features. Many REALLY believe they will attract decent guys. This look doesn't attract that. They wind up looking like comic book characters and viewed as temporary toys.

Well, boob jobs are one thing... the one big thing that is a turn off are the disgusting tattooes. I look at an attractive girl like Megan Fox, and she defaces herself with tattooes (Angelina Jolie does the same thing). I find them singularly viscerally repulsive on a female. Tattooes ought to be the exclusive province of males, such as bikers, those in the enlisted wing of our military forces, or prisoners.
