(Newser) – The discovery of two cars may help piece together details in the Ryan Jenkins-Jasmine Fiore murder-suicide. A PT Cruiser matching the description of the one that dropped off Jenkins at a motel, where he later hanged himself, has been spotted in the parking garage belonging to his half-sister, the Vancouver Sun reports. The find suggests she may be the mystery woman seen driving him.

Meanwhile, police found Fiore’s Mercedes-Benz in a West Hollywood parking lot, the Los Angeles Times notes. The discovery could help authorities determine where Fiore was murdered, who abandoned her car, and who—if anyone—helped Jenkins. His mother, for one, still believes “he’s innocent,” she says, adding that Fiore’s family is probably “going through the same thing we’re going through. It’s heartbreaking.”
