Blow-By-Blow of

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.

I am totally fine with you getting into celebrities' lives, because that's what they sign up for by getting into this business.

But have some decorum, this girl was brutally murdered in cold blood and you are doing a frackin' play by play of her death.

TMZ, you are attempting to profit off this persons death. I love how you mention the smoking gun is the suitcase. I hope he now lights it on fire thanks to you giving him the heads up. This is a reason why the police usually do not feed the media information (I use the term media very loosely)

Jay, the smoking gun is the suitcase she was found in.....not one he can burn or get rid of...really read the story! The police use the media just as much as the media uses them! That's why you are most likely in law enforecement and not media....you can't read! Don't dog on TMZ, they do an awesome job!!

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. Let's move on to news that is worth all this coverage.

HUH, Jay????????

He can't light the suitcase on fire. It was found in a dumpster with her body stuffed inside of it.

Do people know how to read around here. They surely don't know how to spell.

# 4 Jame... I can totally understand where you're coming from but with news organizations giving details regarding the case it's going to make it almost impossible for this @sshole to get away with the crime.

If the general public is sickened and disgusted with him it's only going to be that harder for a lawyer to get him off.

Sad sad    

I thought it was believed she was dead only 2 hour prior to her being found in the dumpster? So is that now not correct? I think he strangled her there. If she was being beat up at the same time (if that's true from reports) you would think there would be small traces of blood. Even being on the headboard or sheets. Or wherever it occurred. He probably drove that car off in the ocean.

"Remembering Jasmine Fiore"? TMZ are you serious? Nobody knew who this hooker was until she showed up dead in a suitcase. You're quickly running this story into the ground much like you have Michael Jacksons demise.
