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.

ok, so she's not very attractive...at all...but c'mon guys, there are people out there that loved this woman and now she's gone. Let's have a little bit more respect for the deceased.

Thanks for ruining "Megan wants a millionaire". Your story says Jenkins was in Mexico filming a reality series. VH1 usually goes to Mexico for the Finale of its series. So by releasing that info, you just ruined the suspense of the series. Nice job Harvey, nice job!

"Chicky" - you totally missed the point. I was making a comment on how lax legal reporting is in the states - I never said I didnt find it entertaining! I thought that was obvious?? Oh, not to an American I guess...

First, the entertainment, (as you call it) in our news is simply a by-product of our first amendment, you know that whole "freedom of press" thing. Granted, sites like this exploit that by-product and use the first amendment as justification to sensationalize stories
about our entertainers, but that's beyond my point.

Secondly, I don't like how you used the term 'american' with such a derogatory connotation; it's really prejudice of you.

Dolly, so sorry for the loss of your friend. Know there's a bunch of 12 year old's on mamas computer. Bored and waiting for school to start.

Will someone turn this fool in already? I've been waiting all day and find it hard to believe no one knows where he's at.

Wow, I can't believe how people get things so mixed up...evidently most of you read ONE story online & draw conclusions that aren't true. How about doing some research before you spout off??

Jasmine & Ryan met AFTER he was booted off of "Megan.." They were married for a short time & she got the marriage annulled. She only contacted her old b/f when she decided she'd had enough of Ryan's lies and BS. He didn't want her leaving - the old "If I can't have you, nobody can" and found that text, so he got pissed and killed her. The police say his publisher has NOT been in touch with them, so TMZ has that wrong...he's on the run and if he's made it to Canada, he most likely will not be extradited back here unless the US guarantees no death penalty. Geez, the guy had a 2 day start from the time he reported her missing until she was ID'd...plenty of time to drive/fly 1000 miles. And you can bet his rich parents will hide him.

Glad VH1 had the respect to cancel the program - just watching a clip of that you could tell what a ****hole he was. And Ryan was the one bragging to people that he'd won ILM3 over a month ago, so TMZ wasn't ruining that for the dumbass people that just love those reality shows. Talk about mind numbing junk...

Anyway, Jasmine sure didn't deserve what happened to her and my heart goes out to her mom and friends. ((hugs, Lisa))What was done to her was horrific and NO ONE deserves to die like that, no matter what you think she looks like. Sometimes you just have to shake your head over the way the world is these days...
