Text Message -- Key Clue in Model Murder

8/19/2009 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jasmine FloreSources tell TMZ cops have spoken with a man who was involved with the murdered model -- and a text message he received the last night of her life may be the key to unlocking this mystery.

Here's what multiple sources tell TMZ. The victim, Jasmine Fiore, and her husband, Ryan Jenkins (the "person of interest") were in San Diego for a poker tournament last Friday. At some point in the evening, Fiore texted Robert Hasman, a former boyfriend with whom she was involved before meeting Jenkins.

We're told Jenkins not only knew of Hasman, he was upset Hasman had been communicating with his wife while Jenkins was in Mexico shooting a reality show.

We're told Fiore texted Hasman on Friday night, saying she was going to travel to Las Vegas to see him.

Later that same evening, we're told Hasman received another text from Fiore's phone that just said, "suck it."

Police are exploring a theory that Jenkins may have seen the text Fiore sent to Hasman and then fired off the "suck it" message out of anger.

Fiore's body was stuffed in a suitcase and placed in a dumpster in Orange County, CA. Jenkins was the last person to see her and the one who reported her missing on Saturday night. He is now MIA. Cops say they are "suspicious" of Jenkins but he is not yet a suspect.

Can you please put up a picture of MJ instead of this one? I can't look at her face. She makes Michael's plastic surgery look like nothing. Good god - is she even a real person? WTF did she do to her face? She looks like a barbie doll.

the sane & the old    

This is what gets me about this case-

-the husband is saying and doing everything that someone in his situation would be doing to cover his tracks and make himself appear innocent (reporting her missing, making loaded, definitive statements to the roommate, etc) EXCEPT the whole MIA thing

If he was innocent, the second her body was found he would be talking to police

I think he is MIA because he didnt expect her to be found so soon

If the girl had been found a couple weeks later he would be farther away from the guilt, and appear very innocent, but as it stands he looks very guilty


Spousal homicide checklist:
-murder spouse and dump the body (check)
-report person missing (check)
-make comments to friends about 'being over it, im leaving,' etc. (check)
-spend time in public 'getting over' the relationship (oops)
-act surprised, distraught and even cry on TV once body is found (oops)

Yep, agrees with that. Now let's see if he commits suicide or actually tries to work with police. Seriously, if he's guilty he knows all his millions are going bye bye and so is pretty much his life.

From this Linked profile, it seems Ryan Jenkins is a licensed pilot:

If I were the police, I'd look for his car in the parking lots of small airports or any place you can rent a small plane.

All the comments about this dead women's looks shows how low society has gotten. I'd like to see what they look like and if they have social lives.

However, if this was their sister/friend who died, they'd be on TV demanding justice!
