Person of Interest in Model Murder Married Victim

8/18/2009 9:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've just learned Ryan Alexander Jenkins -- the "person of interest" in the murder of Jasmine Fiore -- married the victim earlier this year.



Jenkins was a contestant on "Megan Wants a Millionaire." The star, Megan Hauserman, told TMZ Jenkins met Fiore at a strip club in Las Vegas where she worked as a dancer. Megan says Jenkins married Fiore two days later.

We're told Jenkins -- who was a finalist on the show -- went right to Vegas after getting booted from the show and met Fiore.

We spoke with Megan by phone, who told us Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events.

UPDATE: 9:39 PM ET
We just spoke with Jenkins' publicist, who tells us, "Ryan is currently speaking to his attorney and will fully cooperate with the police in this matter. He is planning on meeting with them in the near future."

What's interesting is not only is VH1 removing all of the stuff on the site, but they are also not allowing anyone to discuss it in the forums. They've removed all but the smallest traces of the show on it's site, so I'm thinking that the rest of this show won't see the light of day unless someone leaks it to the internet.

It looks like Jasmine Fiore was possibly also known as Jasmine Kinkade. There was a Ryan Alexander Jenkins and Jasmine Kinkade married 3/18/09 in Las Vegas.

Remember in the beginning when he told Megan something along the lines of "if we ever get married I won't make you sign a pre-nup". Spooky. I bet the earlier poster was right, he was always planning on marrying an American to become a citizen and then murdering her to be free and not have to worry about her taking his $$. This murder was probably carefully planned (even down to removing her teeth and fingers to prevent/postpone I.D. of the body). He knew exactly what he was doing...and probably thought he was smarter than he really was.

Was Ryan in the wrong for murdering Jasmine? Yes. However, the fact that she died of strangulation makes me think it happened in the heat of the moment, since most deaths of that nature are not premeditated. After he did it though, I'm guessing he panicked, and that's why he removed her fingers and teeth. For the record, I am NOT defending him. I do not think that he was a decent human being. I've also seen people on the internet saying things like "well, she was just a stripper anyway." Whether she was or not (I've seen conflicting information), that does not mean she was worthless nor that she deserved to be killed. As for Megan, I don't like her, but I'm glad she didn't pick him, because she doesn't deserve to be killed. I wonder what she really feels about all of this. I'm sure Vh1 has told her to keep her mouth shut.
