RCMP say they know identify of woman who dropped Jenkins off at B.C. motel

The RCMP say they know the identity of a woman who reportedly dropped off Ryan Jenkins at a hotel east of Vancouver days before the accused killer hanged himself.

VANCOUVER — The RCMP say they know the identity of a woman who reportedly dropped off Ryan Jenkins at a hotel east of Vancouver days before the accused killer hanged himself.

The former Calgary real estate developer was found dead Sunday at a motel room in Hope, where the manager said Jenkins arrived several days earlier with a young woman in a car with Alberta licence plates.

Jenkins had been facing first-degree murder charges after the mutilated body of his ex-wife Jasmine Fiore was found in a suburban Los Angeles dumpster.

Sgt. Duncan Pound of the RCMP says police have identified the woman, but aren’t saying if they’ve spoken to her or whether she’s in custody.

Pound says investigators believe Jenkins and the woman knew each other and police will consider whether any criminal charges are warranted.

Jenkins’ boat was found in a marina in nearby Point Roberts, Wash., where it’s an easy walk into Canada along an unguarded beach or through a residential area.
