Slain model’s ex is happy Jenkins is dead

Jasmine Fiore's former boyfriend said he is happy the slain model's husband, Canadian reality TV personality Ryan Jenkins, is dead.

Jenkins' body was discovered hanging from a coat rack in a British Columbia motel room during the weekend. Police said they think he committed suicide.

The man's death ended an international manhunt in the wake of Fiore's slaying. Her body, with teeth and fingers removed, was found stuffed in a suitcase and tossed in a dumpster behind a California apartment complex Aug. 15.

I'm happy Ryan killed himself, quoted Robert Hasman, Fiore's former beau, as saying in a Today show interview that aired Monday.

It brings some closure to what's going on, Lisa Lapore, Fiore's mother, said on the program about Jenkins' apparent suicide.

Lapore said there is some comfort knowing he's no longer a threat but We still have a long process of closure.
