Warning: Story contains disturbing details
Fugitive reality-TV contestant Ryan Jenkins, who was wanted on murder charges in the United States, apparently hanged himself in a Hope, B.C., motel.
The Calgary native was accused in the death of his ex-wife, swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore, whose mutilated body was found in a Los Angeles dumpster on Aug. 15.
RCMP responded to a call Sunday afternoon about a dead person in Hope, 150 kilometres east of Vancouver, and then called investigators who were part of the massive manhunt for Jenkins, said Sgt. Duncan Pound of the RCMP’s border integrity unit.
Crime scene investigators identified Jenkins through fingerprints.
