(Newser) – Reality TV star Ryan Jenkins, accused in the murder of his swimsuit model ex-wife, has been found dead in a British Columbia hotel room, where he apparently hanged himself, the Vancouver Sun reports. "It would be speculation to say how long he had been in there," a rep for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. Authorities in California had charged Jenkins Thursday in the death of Jasmine Fiore.
