Ryan Jenkins, a reality TV contestant suspected in his wife Jasmine Fiore’s slaying in California and charged with murder on August 20th, 2009, was found dead in a hotel room in British Columbia. His wife’s mutilated body was found in a suitcase inside of a dumpster in Buena Park, Calif. on August 15.
CNN is reporting that hotel staff in the town of Hope found Ryans’ body, and preliminary evidence indicates that Jenkins committed suicide, Sgt. Duncan Pound of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told reporters late Sunday. Ryan was found in the hotel room, dead by hanging, said Farrah Emami, spokeswoman for the district attorney in Orange County, California. No other details about Jenkins’ death were immediately released.
