Autopsy confirms Jenkins killed himself

August 25, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Canadian officials say preliminary autopsy results confirm Ryan Jenkins committed suicide in a motel room in British Columbia.Jenkins was the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, former model, Jasmine Fiore.

Police have also identified the woman who they say helped Jenkins check into the motel room where he was found dead. For now, she will not be charged in the case.

Police are still looking for Fiore's white 4-door Mercedes CLS 550, with a black top, black grill, with custom rims. It has been missing for more than a week, and police say it is a key piece of evidence in the case.

Authorities say the case will stay open until they figure out exactly when and where Fiore was murdered.

Jenkins was once a contestant on the VH1 reality TV show 'Megan Wants A Millionaire.'

Fiore's body was found in a suitcase in a trash bin in Buena Park. Her teeth and her fingers had been removed to delay identification, but the coroner was able to identify the body by the serial number on breast implants.

Jenkins' mother has reportedly said that her son was a kind man and she believes that the evidence will eventually clear his name.
