Ryan Jenkins’ last days, Jasmine Fiore’s life detailed

Less than two weeks after events involving them unfolded, the media is takingdetailed looks at murder suspect Ryan Jenkins and murdered model Jasmine Fiore. ABC News examines Jasmine Fiore’s life via her friends and family, while the AP looks at the timeline of Ryan Jenkin’s final days.

Meanwhile, there’s new physical evidence from Fiore’s car, while Jenkins may have had help from two women as he fled.

Ryan Jenkins’ aunt told The Early Show he wasn’t running, but most of what she has to say sounds like typical shocked family member defense of their loved one. And at least that’s not as bad as his father telling the Edmonton Sun that Jasmine “just destroyed him.”

Of course, police say it was the other way around.
