Gruesome Details Revealed in Model's Murder

The reality TV star charged in the slaying of his model ex-wife sliced off her fingers and removed her teeth to make identifying the blonde bombshell more difficult, cops said.

Details of the gruesome killing emerged as cops staged an international manhunt for ex-VH1 reality show contestant Ryan Alexander Jenkins, 32, who reportedly had a "blow-out fight" with model Jasmine Fiore the last night she was seen alive, ABC News reported.

"He was getting really angry, and it totally set the tone for the rest of the evening," an insider who was with the couple at the Hilton Hotel in San Diego early Friday morning told ABC.

Jenkins became overcome with jealously when Fiore spent most of her time in the bathroom on the phone and claimed she was talking to her mother.

"He kept screaming, 'Who were you taking to?'" the source said. "At about 1:30, they went up to their room to continue fighting." 

Jenkins checked out of the L'Auberge Del Mar, about a half-mile from the Hilton, the following morning withoute Fiore, police said. 

Fiore was discovered naked -- with her fingers and teeth missing -- stuffed into a suitcase that was found Saturday morning in a dumpster in Buena Park, Calif. Cops said she was strangled.

The "Megan Wants a Millionaire" contestant reported her missing the same day the suitcase was found. He was charged with her murder yesterday.

Officials believe Jenkins may have crossed the Canadian border from a remote area in Washington state overnight after he was named a person of interest in the case.

His black SUV and empty boat trailer attached was found in Washington state, and authorities said a man matching Jenkins' description was seen boarding a boat bound for a remote area where people can walk across the Canadian border on Thursday.

According to Orange County court documents, prosecutors are recommending that Jenkins be held in lieu of $10 million bail when he is arrested.

Fiore had recently moved to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, where she worked as a bikini model and had made appearances in ads for Howard Stern. 

The couple were married in Las Vegas earlier this year, but various media outlets reported the marriage was annulled a short time later.

Jenkins was a contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," a dating show in which men compete for the affections of a woman looking to become a "trophy wife" for a well-to-do suitor. His profile on the show's website lists him as a Calgary investment banker who claims to mold "player girls" into "princesses."

VH1 is no longer airing the show in light of the investigation.

The show's star, Megan Hauserman, told TMZ.com that Jenkins and Fiore met earlier this year in a Las Vegas strip club where Fiore was a dancer, and they were married two days later.
