(Newser) – A reality show contestant who once bragged he “left many amazing women in his life primarily because he wanted more women” is a person of interest in the murder of swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore, the Los Angeles Times reports. Fiore, 28, was last seen with boyfriend (or husband, according to TMZ) Ryan Jenkins; her body was found Saturday stuffed in a suitcase that had been dumped in a trash bin.

True Crime Report has a screen grab from Ryan Alexander Jenkins’ reality show bio for VH1's Megan Wants a  Millionaire, which—along with the above quote—also describes the Canadian national as an investment banker. Fiore’s mother says the two were on their way to San Diego and her daughter had a suitcase “packed to the gills. Probably the same one she was stuffed in.” Jenkins, 32, reported Fiore missing.
