Reality Star Murder Suspect Found Dead

You had to know it wasn't going to end well for Ryan Jenkins.

The reality TV star, who was charged with the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore, was found dead in a Canada motel room Sunday afternoon.

The official cause of the death for the 32-year-old Megan Wants to be a Millionaire star was not released, but police say it was an apparent suicide.

According to, Ryan checked into a motel on Friday, after being dropped off by a young woman. The room was paid for for two days, and when the suspect didn't check out on the second day, the manager and his nephew went to investigate. They found the suspect in the room, hanging from a coat rack by his belt.

Ryan had been on the run from the cops since last week, when he originally became a "person of interest" in the investigation of his wife's murder.

At a press conference Sunday night, Lt. Steve Holliday said police will continue to investigate Jasmine's death but, "The sadness for us is that Mr. Jenkins will not stand before an Orange County jury for these crimes."
