Former Megan Wants a Millionaire contestant Ryan Jenkins was found dead in a motel room in Canada on Sunday. Ryan Jenkins was wanted for questioning in the brutal murder of his ex-wife, model Jasmine Fiore.
The body of Ryan Alexander Jenkins was discovered in a motel room in Hope, B.C. on Sunday. Jenkins had apparently committed suicide by hanging himself with a belt. Police are now searching for a woman who allegedly checked Jenkins into the hotel on Thursday.
According to CTV.ca, an unidentified woman paid for the hotel room for three nights. When no one checked out of the room on Sunday, the motel manager entered the room to find Ryan Jenkins’ body.
Jasmine Fiore’s mother, Lisa Lepore, said on Good Morning America that Ryan Jenkins “took the easy way out” by killing himself.
Ryan Jenkins starred on the VH-1 reality shows Megan Wants a Millionaire and I Love Money 3. Megan Wants a Millionaire has been pulled from the air and I Love Money 3 will not be aired, according to SmallScreenScoop.com.
A $25,000 reward is being offered by the U.S. Marshals Service for information leading to the arrest of Jasmine Fiore murder suspect Ryan Alexander Jenkins.
