Fugitive Ryan Jenkins was found dead in motel room in Hope, Canada, about 150 kilometers from Vancouver. The RCMP are still trying to determine how long he was at the Thunderbird Motel before he hanged himself.

Ryan Jenkins was wanted for the brutal murdering of his ex-wife, and swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore. Her badly mutilated body was discovered in a dumpster southeast of Los Angeles on August 15th. Her teeth and fingers were removed, making identification difficult. She was identified through serial numbers on her breast implants.

Jenkins boat was found on Wednesday, south of Vancouver, not far from the US-Canada border. The RCMP confirmed early sunday that Jenkins was somewhere in Canada and he should turn himself in. He was considered armed and dangerous.

Ryan Jenkins is from Calgary and moved to Los Angeles after appearing in a reality television show on the VH1 network, “Megan Wants a Millionaire“.

There were a couple of false sightings during the manhunt. One man was stopped on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver for using an alias. Another man was taken off a Vancouver transit bus because he looked similar and was interested in the news story.

The U.S. Marshals were offering a $25,000 reward for information to leading his capture.
