Cop: Jasmine's Teeth and Fingers Were Removed

8/20/2009 7:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Officials from the Buena Park Police Department just held a news conference about the death of model Jasmine Fiore and their search for her husband and murder suspect, Ryan Jenkins.

Here's the blow-by-blow of what went down:

UPDATE: Buena Park's Chief of Police Tom Monson is at the podium. Monson promises a "vigorous pursuit of justice."

UPDATE: Monson says he believes Ryan has escaped to Canada on foot.

UPDATE: A US Marshal is at the podium now. He says his agency is cooperating with law enforcement in Canada to find Ryan. He says anyone who helps Ryan in any way would be charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive.

UPDATE: A close family friend named Robert Hasman -- who says he used to date Jasmine -- is speaking. He says Jenkins is an "animal" for what he did to Jasmine.

UPDATE
: Lieutenant Holliday just said Jasmine's teeth and fingers had been removed. He said there's a $10 million bail out on Ryan.

UPDATE:
Lt. Holliday just said Ryan may be armed with a handgun. It's over now.

It's pretty sad nobody takes this seriously because of her appearance. She was still somebody's family and despite how she may/may not have lived her life,she didn't deserve this....though, I can think of a few people who do...more than a few.

Cant wait til they catch this jackass. He is such an arrogant prick so I'm sure it won't be too long considering that he will probably give a "don't you know who I am" to someone, leading to his capture. Good luck to ya bud. Ur gonna get caught real soon. And probably have one more TV appearance coming on Sat night on Americas most wanted.

Well this is no surprise. Police labled him a PERSON OF INTEREST.

Unless Police have FACTUALLY CLEARED YOU AND THUS " " ELIMINATED YOU
" " from the investigation AND TOLD YOU TO YOUR FACE AS WELL AS THE
VICTIMS FAMILIES FACES.

Being charged charged with murder goes hand in hand with being a
PERSON OF INTEREST ; the new semantical playmate of the term MURDER
SUSPECT.

Yes, well very sad. If that is her mother then it does look like there is a lot of inbreeding going on sometime in the past. My heart does go out for her family and friends though.

This is so very sad. She was so beautiful. What's with these men thinking they are going to get away with killing their wives, come on! He will get what he deserves. Maybe we should find him and put HIM in a suitcase. Whether he did it or had someone else do it, he's gonna go down...

So the family friend that just spoke was the same guy who got the text message on Friday night that said "suck it."

Also, if he removed her teeth and her fingers he is even more of a freakin maniac than we thought before!

A Man Among Men    


Please remember that this young woman was a real person.

From the local newspaper, The Santa Crtuz Sentinel, http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/ci_13165756

Fiore's birth name was Jasmine Lepore, said Gwendolyn Beauregard

of Bonny Doon, who said Fiore was like a daughter to her. Fiore was a friend of Beauregard's sons from the time she was 11, and since her mother traveled often, she found a home away from home with the family, Beauregard said.

Later, Fiore worked for two of the family's businesses, at Shopper's Corner and on the Chardonnay, and she remained close with the family, Beauregard said.

Beauregard said she was stunned and saddened by the killing and recalled the times Fiore would surprise her with visits and gifts. On Mother's Day last year she came to a Pacific Avenue salon where Beauregard worked, holding an orchid and a Mother's Day card.

"She was part of our family," she said. "She always surprised me with really special things. One time, she flew me to Vegas and treated me like a queen. She was a pretty girl who had a big heart and would do anything for you."

Fiore was an athletic girl who loved dogs and horses and later was set on becoming an actress, Beauregard said.

She left Santa Cruz not long after graduating from high school and lived in Los Angeles, then Las Vegas, and was returning to Los Angeles to work as a fitness trainer, Beauregard said. Fiore was changing her career after having modeled for Hawaiian Tropic and others. She also worked as a coordinator for Playboy "Girls of Golf," Beauregard said.

"She was a wholesome, happy, fun-loving lady," she said. "She had a rough upbringing, but she was reaching for the stars."

Fact Checker    

OMG The police said her fingers and teeth were missing.......... This man is so very very SICK. He went to so many lengths to make sure they would not be able to identify her and that he also not be caught.

I no longer want to see the rest of the VH1 Show.

I was glad to see the ex-boyfriend was talking at the press conference. He said he had known her for 2 1/2 years he was still very close to the family, so close he spoke for the family. I can see why he is off the suspect list. Fully co-operating with the police unlike Ryan Jenkins.

shiver....

This freak deserves to rot. Blaine Washington is merely seconds from the BC border. I know this is a hot topic in BC right now, and people there are keeping an eye open for him. He WILL be caught. I feel so bad for the victim's family. Hate to say it, being Canadian myself, but the "justice" he got for beating his prior gf is typical Canadian justice ... meaning it's always the victim's fault! I hope the US gets him back on their soil and brutalizes him the way he brutalized his victim, and teaches the Canadian bonehead justice system the proper way to deal with these sociopaths!
