(Newser) – The remains of a former model whose killing has set off an international manhunt for a reality TV star were so badly mutilated that investigators had to use the serial numbers on her breast implants to identify her. Previous reports have suggested that the killer of Jasmine Fiore removed her fingers and teeth to prevent identification. The man charged with her murder, TV show contestant Ryan Alexander Jenkins, remains on the run.

Authorities believe Jenkins, a contestant on VH1's now-canceled Megan Wants a Millionaire, may have fled more than 1,000 miles to reach his native Canada. Prosecutors recommended bail of $10 million upon his arrest and said he had significant resources to finance his flight. Jenkins also was a participant in an as-yet-unaired competitive reality series called I Love Money 3. A VH1 spokesman said no decision has been made on whether to run the show.
