Jasmine Fiore's Murder

8/21/2009 3:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Jasmine Fiore murder investigation tell us authorities believe Jasmine Fiore was strangled last Friday, sometime after midnight, and surveillance video shows Jenkins leaving a hotel with a suitcase that may have been the receptacle for Fiore's body.

Jasmine Fiore's Murder

Sources say the video shows Ryan Jenkins leaving the hotel for good last Friday morning, although he never went to the front desk to check out. The video shows Jenkins leaving with his luggage, but Fiore does not leave with him -- she is never seen leaving at all.

The hotel -- L'Auberge Del Mar near San Diego -- was searched twice this week by Buena Park detectives. We're told the room in which Jenkins and Fiore stayed had no evidence of blood, and it appears she was mutilated elsewhere before her body -- stuffed in a suitcase -- was deposited in a dumpster in Buena Park, CA.

We're also told the smoking gun is the suitcase in which the body was found. Sources say one of the suitcases Jenkins left with resembles the suitcase in which Fiore's body was stuffed.

The white Mercedes Jenkins drove off in has not been found. Our sources say cops believe Jenkins may have murdered Fiore in the hotel room, and then mutilated the body after he left.

Fiore's cell phone also has not been found. As we first reported, Fiore had text messaged former boyfriend Robert Hasman numerous times Thursday night and early Friday morning, saying she wanted to travel to Las Vegas to see him.

And, in an eerie twist, as we first reported, Hasman got a text message last Friday night from Fiore's phone, which said "suck it." It appears that message was sent long after Fiore was dead.

Law enforcement sources say they believe Jenkins acted alone.

In the movie Eastern Promises there is referneces to the practice of pulling teeth and cutting off fingertips. Perhaps some investigation should go into whether Jenkins ever claimed to have seen or liked or referred to the scene in that movie. R.I.P. J Fiore, we hardly knew ye.

He didn't cut the fingers off and rip the teeth out just to be sadistic, it's a common way to cover up a murder.

He was obviously trying to conceal the identity of the victim.
Cutting fingers off means no finger prints and no teeth no dental records.
Kinda like a movie.

He might have got away with it, if he would have burned the body.
They would have never made an id on the body.
Sad, but, he didn't think it through.

So, from what I am reading about this, this guy marries this ho in Las Vegas on a whim, she starts texting her former lover saying that she wants to come back and see him, the husband flies into a rage, chops her up, puts her in a suitcase and flees to Canada. Does that about sum it up? Ladies, you have to realize that cheating CAN get you killed. Nuff said.

This would have never happened to her if she wouldn't have been playing games with Ryan!!! If you are "happily married" to someone or involved with someone you shouldn't be texting your ex saying that you want to go see them....If your gonna play your gonna pay bitch...sorry lol!!!! Ryan, may you rest in peace!!!!!

WOW OMG!!! I cannot believe as a human being someone say and I quote " Does anyone really care about this fugly model? I mean it is sad and everything but its not like she was some big celebrity everyone loved. She was just a low life person that looked like a whore who was married to a criminal" Well I am pretty dang sure she has family and friends JUST LIKE YOU that care!!!! And I bet your really not that great of a person "not a celebrity" so if you got murdered would you want ppl trashing you like that. Seriously ppl this was a inocent person that thought she found her soulmate and got murdered in the end. God bless her family and friends and may she rest in peace. Thank goodness he killed himself b/c I am sure he will rot in HELL now.

To those who say that TMZ is wrong to stress this story: wrong answer. I never go to TMZ but this story is fascinating enough for me to go here. And they know this. They see what is trending here and on Twitter, etc. They are filling a need for info and the videos here really explain more about the guy being obsessive about the body of this woman. As to more on why this is interesting? Well, he was very charming and good looking on a reality show that actually was getting a lot of attention and which was still being shown in which the guy looked like he would be a finalist. It is furthermore fascinating that this good looking charming guy had so much going for him but managed to become obsessive about the body of a Las Vegas model type whom are really easy to meet (for instance at the Olympia Gardens) and easy to date if you earn more than $70,000 per year (not to say she may have not also had a fascinating personality).

Everyone I know is saying "Why would he throw it all away like that and do such a crime?" The obvious answer is that he had low self esteem. Another Canadian guy killed the Playboy playmate in 1980 who married him but left him for an American. The pattern seems to show that some Canadian guys feel inferior to American guys when they come to the US and try to make it. The SNL star who killed himself because he was fat is another example. But other Canadian guys end up being superstars and have a great life in the US.

Anyway, what I am writing about here is this: Do NOT advocate new anti-male laws demanding that we be background checked, for instance, by the webmasters of online dating sites like the IMBRA law which is totally unconstitutional. It is a woman's responsibility to do background checks, not any venue that helps her get introduced to a man. Government needs to stay out of background checking males.

Furthermore, it may sound like great advice to do b checks on the man you are dating, but you may learn something early on that would not have hurt the relationship and you can destroy your own happiness by rejecting him for "lying" or for "being too old" early on. Example would be if a man says he is 32 and he is really 35. If you're in love and it turns out he only "lied" because your silly profile said "noone older than 32 need apply" than it would be a good thing that you didn't learn early of the white lie. Almost everyone lies about their age (and that has nothing to do with potential loyalty or overall honesty but with simple survival in a viciously youth-oriented dating world) so you'd be seriously reducing your chances at love by getting picky about learning the total truth too early.

A DUI or something similar may really mean nothing. I don't think this kind of info should be available to others (and I have nothing like that to plague me personally). Then of course, a man can be falsely charged with domestic violence in a divorce proceeding so the woman can get the kids or more money. That happens every single day in the US. So DV history checks can wrongfully hurt a man's future with you and YOUR happiness.

Sure, being American...if I were a woman I'd probably do a quick check on a man...but I also wouldn't blame American guys for choosing not to date our cynical paranoid selves.

Personally, I think it is anti-male to do background checks on males where men would never bother doing background checks on the women they date (for instance, Ryan could have checked to see if his bride ever registered as a stripper or got caught for prostitution - why would a millinaire put his finances at legal risk of divorce proceedings with an ex stripper if she had been one?)

A lot of men who have nothing to hide wouldn't ever love or respect a woman who did a background check on them upfront.

Do you think I stayed with the woman I caught checking my bank account via her friend? No way Jay.

Say what you want, just because technology makes it possible now, doesn't mean that human beings were meant to be knowing so much about each other upfront. She had the technology to know more about Ryan...but she probably already knew the information and chose to stay with him because of money, etc. Obviously, VH1 would have wanted to do a background check because they are now going to be out a lot of money. Before marriage itself, of course you are going to want a background check on the person you are tying the knot to.

Jenkins really thought that he could pull off this seriously heinous crime. His consciousness caught up with him before the law could. In my opinion, he did the honorable thing, by saving California taxpayers millions on his life sentence.

Fiore probably figured out how to play people in third grade. Please, no little miss innocent pleas from the peanut gallery. She was dangerous, and she loved it. No telling how she made herself to look like a Bratz girl though.

Hailey: You make a good point that the 30 yr old murder of the Playmate by a British Columbia man does NOT show a pattern at all, mainly because US men with low self esteem murder their partners every day.

In fact, I should have known better because the feminists are saying that the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) is constitutional and necessary because two American men murdered their foreign "brides" in the last 10 years.

In court they got IMBRA upheld (until the next guy challenges it) because the idiot judge felt that two murders was a pattern, despite the fact that 2000 US men murder their US born wives every year.

However I do believe as a Canadian myself that too many Canadians have an inferiority complex toward Americans and both murder cases involved the men having inferiority complexes - the former guy probably felt sure he was never going to get another woman like he had and Ryan Jenkins clearly didn't understand how many US women would have gladly gone to bed with him after seeing him on Megan Wants a Millionaire. Also, while I agree that it is wrong for some to condemn the dead woman gratuitously, it is not wrong for people to discuss things like how a certain lifestyle and value system can get you the wrong kind of partner and it is not wrong for many men to point out that Ryan Jenkins really didn't need to have gotten so obsessed with her - he had the world at his grasp and he threw it all away...probably because his self confidence was in the basement.
