Reality Star Jenkins Flees to Canada

8/20/2009 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sheriff's deputies in Washington state now tell TMZ that they believe Ryan Alexander Jenkins has escaped to Canada by foot.

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.

I LIVE A HALF A BLOCK AWAY FROM WHERE HIS BOAT WAS RECOVERED, AND THE PLACE IS ACTUALLY NOT PART OF THE US. IT IS CANADIAN SOIL....IT IS A SMALL AREA THAT IS REMOTE AND IN AN INLET WHERE IT IS ALL BEACH....IT IS VERY DARK HERE AT NIGHT , WITH LOTS OF TREES AND BUSHES, BUT BY THE SAME TOKEN, THERE ARE PLENTY OF COYOTES AS WELL....THIS IS A VERY VERY SMALL COMMUNITY WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE AND EVERTHING, AND WATCHES AFTER THEIR NEIGHBOURS....THIS CHARACTER IS NOT GOING TO HAVE GOOD LUCK IF HE THINKS HE CAN GET AWAY,,,,,THERE IS ONLY ONE ROAD INTO TOWN AND THE SAME ROAD OUT OF TOWN,,,,HIS MOM LIVES APPARENTLY IN VANCOUNVER AND THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY THERE, SO HE IS AS THEY SAY, FINISHED..THERE IS EVERY FEDERAL AND LOCAL AGENCY, AND EVERY PUBLIC SAFTEY RESOURCE THERE IS.AVAILABLE..THIS GUY IS NOT GOING TO LAST TO LONG.

Don't we have an agreement with Canada, to have a fleeing suspect returned to the US?

WHY go to Canada ??

U.S. has an Extradition Treaty with Canada as long as the U.S. does Not seek the Death Penalty against the suspect.

You'll be brought right back !!

It doesn't make sense for him to drive to Canada, or even attempt to stay here, if he is a multi-millionaire. Since he (probably) committed the crime in Buena Park, it would be much easier for him to drive to Mexico. She was found on Wednesday. He had three days to get out of the country. Why not drive to Rosarito, and fly to Eastern Europe, or somewhere he could blend in, easily, with a pretty good exchange rate. Why risk going back to Candada, by driving through the United States?

Use DADDY's Millions (DAN JENKINS) to get yourself to Europe & go Underground.

With all that MONEY . . . If you get caught in Canada - then You're NOT as smart as you portrayed yourself to be.

You're FRONT PAGE NEWS in Calgary !!

Your Passport is No Longer Good !!

You cannot fly commercially !!

Charter a "Private Boat" to the "Tip" of South America - Charter another "Private Boat" to Europe.

Sneak ashore - Travel by Land to Africa.

Go Underground in Africa's many Countries.

SERIOUSLY!!!    

Reply to comment #9 Amber Burgland: I doubt he would go to Mexico because of all the danger/drug wars surrounding that country at this time. Canada would be my guess, since he is from there and knows the country/terrain better (plus contact friends & family)... and if he's a millionaire the Feds are probably watching his bank account/credit accts. therefore he is not using any of his funds, so Canada (with friends/family $$) makes more sense.
