Buena Park police are holding a press conference right now about Jasmine Fiore’s murder and said there were blood splatters inside her Mercedes — the car they found yesterday abandoned in a parking lot in West Hollywood.
Cops say there was definitely a “struggle between two people in the car.” Cops say there was more significant bloodloss in the back seat of the car. The inside of the car had been wiped down and the outside was recently washed.
It appears a lot of hairpulling occurred. There was blood splatter on the back windshield.
Cops say the car had definitely gone offroad at some point — there were mud stains on the tires and there were twigs caught in the undercarriage.
Cops say the only trauma on Jasmine was to her face and she had a broken nose.
There’s no reason to believe her teeth were removed in the vehicle — there were fragments of her teeth in the suitcase, so they can assume her teeth were removed as she around the suitcase or in it.
The cops say she could have “easily fit in the suitcase.”
Cops say her fingers were cut off at the tips post-mortem. A few peices of her clothing were found in the trunk. Cops say they are still looking for certain articles of her clothing.
Both suspect and victim were seen entering her Mercedes at the San Diego Hilton at 2:30 AM on the morning of August 14. She was never seen again. Later that morning, Jenkins was seen leaving the L’Auberge Del Mar at 9:20 AM. The next time he was seen on video was at 5 PM at his residence in Los Angeles.
This is the big mystery, where was Jasmine when Ryan was seen checking out of the L’Auberge?
Ryan possibly assaulted her in the vehicle near Corona — after leaving San Diego — between the hours of 11 AM and 2 PM. The car possibly went off road during the assault. That area where the car went offroad may be where he assaulted her further. The next day she was found in the trash. A witness saw Ryan in Buena Park the area where her body was dumped later that afternoon.
They say the Corona area is of interest because her suitcase and other remains may be in that area.
A prelimary report by the coroner says she was killed by strangulation. Some sort of violent act occurred in her Mercedes. Cops say she was either killed in the car or at the hotel.
A bladed sharp instrument was used to cut her fingertips off, they don’t know exactly what.
The severing of her fingers were definitely done post-mortem. Her nose was broken and she sustained head injuries. Pliers could have been used to pull her teeth out. There were fragments of her teeth in the suitcase.
Cops say it was a domestic violence case gone bad … and it was all over “jealousy.”
Jasmine’s Mercedes was abandone 1.3 miles from Ryan and Jasmine’s residence in Los Angeles.
Cops say there’s evidence there was flailing of arms consistent with a struggle. Cops say the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have not been very forthcoming with evidence found at the motel where Jenkins killed himself.
Jenkins suitcase, the one he left the La Barge hotel was found in a storage facility in Washington state.
Cops say he had no help from anyone in California. They say Ryan drove to Nevada then up to Washington.
Cops say there was no evidence sexual assault on Jasmine.
