Reality TV star sought in ex-wife's death

Posted By Grant Dade - bio | email

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A reality TV contestant is wanted for questioning in the death of his ex-wife, a former swimsuit model whose nude body was found stuffed into a suitcase in California.

Jasmine Fiore, 28, who lived in Los Angeles, was last seen alive Friday in San Diego at a poker game with her ex-husband, Ryan Alexander Jenkins, police said.

''We believe that perhaps he might have information that would be beneficial to the investigation,'' Lt. Gary Worrall of the Buena Park Police Department said Wednesday on HLN's Nancy Grace.

 Jenkins reported Fiore missing Saturday night to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, authorities said.

Earlier that day, a body was found in a large suitcase inside a trash bin behind an apartment complex in Buena Park, just outside Anaheim in Orange County.

 The body was identified as Fiore on Monday. While the cause of death has not been confirmed, a preliminary coroner's report indicates she was strangled.

 Jenkins, who appeared in two VH1 reality TV shows, "Megan Wants a Millionaire" and "I Love Money 3," may have headed back to his native Calgary, Alberta, police said.

 He and Fiore reportedly had been married a few weeks before getting the union annulled.

"Given the fact that he has some celebrity status, we're quite certain that he has been made aware of the media frenzy regarding this case,'' Worrall said. ''And we have made some attempts to get in touch with him.''

In a statement, VH1 said it has postponed any future airings of Megan Wants a Millionaire because of the ''tragic situation'' and said ''our thoughts go out to the victim's family.''

Davida Sullivan, who trained with Fiore in Las Vegas to be a Playboy Bunny called her a bit reserved, careful with her words and a ''very, very sweet girl.''

    Often times, African American history is only recognized during the month of February.  Founders of the Texas African American Museum felt their history slowly slipping away, now they are hoping to change that with the opening of the museum.
