Ryan Jenkins has been charged with murder of his wife, Jasmine Flores. Worse more, newly released details show that he cut off her fingers and pulled out her teeth. Bad stuff here. More from People.
“Ryan Jenkins is an animal,” said Robert Hasman, a former boyfriend of Fiore’s. “What he has done to Jasmine is unspeakable.”
Authorities believe Jenkins has fled to his native Canada, walking across the Washington state border.
Orange County District Attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami tells PEOPLE that Jenkins would have to be apprehended and extradited for any trial to proceed. Emami also says there is no special circumstance attached to the charge that would make Jenkins eligible for the death penalty. Canada would therefore have no reason to resist extraditing Jenkins once he is captured, she says.
Now even worse, the producers of Megan’s reality show are trying to clean up the mess, claiming they didn’t know about Ryan’s priors.
“51Minds was not aware of Ryan Jenkins’ record when it cast him on “Megan Wants a Millionaire.” Obviously, if the company had been given a full picture of his background, he would never have been allowed on the show.
The company did have in place what it thought was a thorough vetting process that involved complete background checks by an outside company for all contestants on its shows. Clearly, the process did not work properly in this case.”
