  This has made me sick.  She was identified by her breast implants.  What gets into some people?

From what I've heard, he is one of those spoiled rich kids who seems to think that his money allows him to do whatever he wants...including murder.

Ok, now let me ask a few questions here.

a guy is a millionaire - but he committed a crime. Let's suppose he managed to escape to Canada. Now what?

assume that he has a few thousand dollars in cash with him, or maybe a few more stored somewhere.

how could he escape? get a false ID, I suppose. BUt then what? He would never be able to access his fortune, correct?

From what I understand, he just walked across the border.  I'm sure that money buys lots of friends, so he should be able to hide out for a while.  Of course, despite the heinous nature of the crime, Canada will not extradite him unless the death penalty is off the table.  Here's a report about it:


Friends and family members, including Fiore's mother, sobbed at a news conference Thursday as a former boyfriend begged for help in capturing Jenkins.


"This message goes out to the family, his mother and father and to the friends that are helping him try to leave this country. Ryan Jenkins is an animal, what he has done to Jasmine is unspeakable and it's just not right and I'd appreciate your help," said Robert Hasman, Fiore's former boyfriend.


Prosecutors recommended a bail of $10 million for Jenkins upon arrest and said he had significant resources to finance his flight. A $25,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his capture.


On the show, Jenkins was identified as an investment banker who had a couple million dollars.


A resume posted on the professional networking site LinkedIn.com says Jenkins has a license to fly commercial airplanes and worked in investment sales and as president of a boutique development company focused on cutting-edge green technologies.


"Anyone helping Mr. Jenkins hide from the police may go to prison themselves," said Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas.


Jenkins is believed to have driven 1,000 miles to Washington state and then hopped in a boat to a peninsula on the border, where he walked into Canadian territory. A Canadian police official said ground, air and canine units are involved in the search for Jenkins.


"We'll look under every rock for him," U.S. Marshal Chief Inspector Thomas Hession said.


A car and empty boat trailer belonging to Jenkins were found at a marina in the remote northwest Washington town of Blaine.


Whatcom County Sheriff's deputies received a report Wednesday that a man matching Jenkins' description arrived by boat at Point Roberts, Washington, about 10 miles from Blaine at the tip of a peninsula. The point is reachable by land only from Canada, and Jenkins is believed to have walked across the border from there.


Canadian Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan said police agencies across Canada are on the lookout for Jenkins.


In California, police detectives twice visited the luxury San Diego boutique hotel where the couple had stayed. Authorities spent three to four hours there Monday and returned Wednesday for about two hours, said Michael Slosser, vice president and managing director of L'Auberge Del Mar. Rooms at the hotel range from $350 to $3,000 a night.


Slosser doesn't believe Fiore was killed at L'Auberge.


"It's very unlikely that it happened here. I can't talk about the specifics," he said.


After taping for "Megan Wants a Millionaire" finished in early March, Jenkins met Fiore in Las Vegas casino and the two got married on March 18, said Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore.


But in May, "they had a big blowout," and fought because he was jealous of her ex-boyfriends, Lepore said. "She had the marriage annulled."


Jenkins then went to Mexico to do another reality TV show, but struggled to get Fiore back when he returned. It was not immediately clear which show he appeared on.


"He convinced her during that month that he was really the guy for her," Lepore said. "He wrote poems and stories, and prayed, and (claimed he) had this huge spiritual awakening."


The federal government was issuing a federal warrant that would allow Canadian authorities to take Jenkins into custody. California could then request that he be extradited to the U.S. but only with reassurances from U.S. authorities that he would not face the death penalty.


Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman with the Orange County district attorney's office, said the death penalty was not being pursued in the case.


Court records show that Jenkins was charged in June in Clark County, Nev., with a misdemeanor count of "battery constituting domestic violence" for allegedly hitting Fiore in the arm and will be tried in December.


Jenkins also has a criminal history in his hometown of Calgary. He was sentenced to 15 months of probation in January 2007 on an unspecified assault charge, according to the Alberta, Canada Ministry of Justice. No further details were available.


Neal Tomlinson, a partner at the law firm representing Jenkins in the Nevada case, did not return an e-mail seeking comment sent after business hours Thursday. He declined to comment earlier in the week.


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


VH1 said it has postponed any future airings of the show. The statement also said that the show was an outside production licensed to VH1, but that it was produced and owned by 51 Minds Entertainment.


51 Minds said in a statement that Jenkins never would have been accepted for its show if the company had known of his past criminal history.


I have to give VH1 credit on this decision. Given the situation, I’m sure this horrible scenario would’ve been a ratings booster for the series as plenty of people would probably tune in to see who this Jenkins guy is. It shows good taste on VH1’s part to discontinue it and it sort of makes up for the fact that they aired such a tacky sounding show to begin with. According to the Reporter, the network hasn’t made a decision about the fate of I Love Money 3, of which Jenkins was also a participant.

But, that's the thing - how can one have access to the money with the police on our back?

he won't be able to wire transfer the money to any account, correct?

he won't be able to go to the bank and cash the money.

I am just curious about the logistics of it, from a criminal's point of view

I get the impression that he has lots of friends and family who would be willing to give him money, even though the police said that to do so would make them accessories.  Sometimes the rich feel that laws which apply to the rest of us don't apply to them.

He hung himself with a belt.  It was in a motel in Hope, B.C.

Ironic, the name, since he didn't have any.

His name was Ryan Jenkins.  I didn't see him on T.V.


Just sorry he was a Canadian but pleased the search for him is over.

I hate to say it, but he probably saved both the Canadian and US governments a ton of money.  I always wonder, when people kill themselves after killing others, why they couldn't have done it before, so the others they killed would have still been alive.

I agree.  Just cannot comprehend how anyone could do just a horrible thing but I guess he thought when he got rid of her teeth and fingers he would never get caught.  He made a couple of million on his T.V. show.  That wouldn't get him much of a place to live in Alberta or B.C.    I understand his Dad has money.  Now people living around the border don't have to wonder if he is hiding in the back shed.

The thought that the taxpayers were saved a bit of money crossed my mind too.

Interesting he chose the same method of death for himself that he did for his poor wife. Good riddance.

Her death was much worse.  Good thing he has gone.


Now they will spend time looking for the blond who drove him there with Alberta plates.

If he has money in off shore banks he could still access it.  If he transferred money to friends, they could dole it out to him.  If he cashed his money in, he will have it in hand. 


Before he ran, he could of obtained a false set of papers, transferred the money to his new name and have access to it.   If he has enough, he could get plastic surgery & live a new life with none the wiser.

Interesting bit on NPR this morning about how one can "disappear". A reporter has done it on a bet, but has many constraints that a real criminal wouldn't have. They were researching a piece about people vanishing, for whatever reason. Change identities etc.
If one is computer savvy, it seems to be quite easy.

THe subject fascinates me. NOt that I have any personal interest in disappearing... but I wish I had heard this NPR thing.

Believe me disappearing is no problem if you have a bit of money, no problem at all, and getting to your cash that is just as easy. But I will not be telling you how.....

He's described as wealthy, but his parents are described as filthy rich. They are supposedly helping him. So he's not entirely on his own.

He's been found and confirmed dead.  Just on the news.

MSNBC.com is leading with it right now--well, not exactly leading but big red "breaking news" banner across the top of the page.

Our radio news is reporting that the RCMP says it was a suicide. (We have a "local" angle on the story because the woman's body was found in Orange County, so naturally our reporters are all over it.)
