Murder charges were filed Thursday against a reality TV contestant whose model-ex wife was found strangled in a Dumpster.
Now all cops have to do is find Ryan Alexander Jenkins, who has been on the lam since Saturday and is believed to have hot-footed it across the border into Canada. More details about the grisly murder of 26-year-old Jasmine Fiore were expected to be revealed later by prosecutors in Orange County, Calif., and by police in the city of Buena Park, where she was found.
The developments came amid revelations that Jenkins beat up a former girlfriend in Calgary and was ordered to get help for sex addiction.
A contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," Jenkins was charged with that assault in 2005, the Calgary Herald reported. Jenkins, 32, was ordered to see a shrink and told to steer clear of the woman. He was also facing trial in Nevada for slugging Fiore when he fled Los Angeles last weekend.
It's not clear if VH1 was aware of Jenkins' past. He was in the cast of another VH1 reality show, "I Love Money 3," which wrapped last month.
A bikini model who once posed in an ad for Howard Stern's radio show, Fiore was found naked and stuffed in a suitcase inside a garbage bin.
Jenkins reported her missing. His SUV and an empty boat trailer were found late Wednesday at a marina in Blaine, Wa., three miles from the Canadian border.
A tipster told cops a man matching Jenkins' description boated to a peninsula near Canada.
Fiore's mom said her daughter's two-month marriage to Jenkins was annulled in May.
"I never had a good vibe with him," Lisa Lepore said.
Didn’t the mother not even reveal that they had been married at first?
What, the “person of interest” had been Suspect Number One all along? I’m shocked, shocked, that Police-Speak is going on here...
