Murdered swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore’s mutilated body was identified through her breast implants, authorities disclosed yesterday.
The 28-year-old’s naked body was found stuffed in a suitcase in a dumpster in Buena Park, California, at the weekend. She had been strangled. Her fingers were cut off and her teeth removed to hamper identification.
Detectives were able to use the serial number on the implants to determine that it was Jasmine Fiore.
“We actually have had several cases where we identified the victim or the defendant in that way,” a spokesperson for Orange County District Attorney’s Office said. The implants have serial numbers in case of a recall.
Fiore’s ex-husband, Ryan Alexander Jenkins, 32, has been charged with her murder. He is believed to be in his native Canada and police are concentrating their search in Vancouver.
The contestant of the reality TV show Megan Wants A Millionaire is thought to have crossed the border into Canada after his black BMW sport utility vehicle and boat trailer were found in Blaine, Washington, and his boat was located in Point Roberts from where it is possible to walk a few hundred yards into Canada.
Airings of the VH1 reality TV show have been suspended.
Police believe Jenkins may be heading for his hometown of Calgary.
