Jenkins is Canadian, and cops in California wanted to talk to him about the death of his wife, model Jasmine Fiore. Her body was found in a suitcase in Orange County last weekend. Customs tells us Jenkins is now a "potential suspect" in her killing.
Here's what we know straight from the Whatcom County Sheriff's Dept. in Washington State, which is just over the border from Canada:
- Yesterday evening a witness reported seeing someone matching Jenkins' description driving a black BMW SUV (we know he owned one) with a boat in tow in a marina which is extremely close to the Canadian border.
- A short time later deputies found the boat and the SUV abandoned.
- A manhunt then began for Jenkins by land, sea, and air, conducted by federal agents, deputies, cops, and Canadian authorities.
- They were unable to find Jenkins and now think that he literally made a run for the border -- crossing over by foot.
