The death of reality TV star Ryan Jenkins, who was accused of mutilating his wife swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore, looked demonic, Kevin Walker who found Jenkins body, said.
Walker is the manager of the Thunderbird Motel where Jenkins hanged himself and was discovered on Sunday. But Walker says he did not recognize Jenkins who police in the U.S. and Canada was looking for. He said Jenkins did not look like the healthy man on TV at all; he had lost a lot of weight and was kind of freaky.
On Sunday, when Ryan Jenkins was supposed to check out, Walker went to his room and knocked. Since he found no response from Jenkins, he went back to his desk and called the room but Jenkins did not respond the call. Then Walker took his keys to open the room's door and discovered him hanging from a belt.
I swung the door open and there he was right in front of me, hanging, Walker said, according to the L.A. Times. The room when I walked in there, it smelled like death. And to tell you the truth, what I thought when I first saw him was, he looked demonic. That's the only way I can describe it. I don't think I'll ever forget it, he added.
Jenkins had upon him the guilt of killing his wife Fiore. Police was looking for him after Fiore's body was found without teeth and fingers in a suitcase in a dumpster in California a week before he killed himself. Authorities said they believe her teeth and fingers were pulled out to avoid the identification of the body and they found the body so battered that they had to recognize her through the number of her breast implants.
A former boyfriend of Fiore has said in public interviews he believes Jenkins killed her in a rage of jealousy. But Jenkins father Dan Jenkins says the son he knew was not capable of anything remotely close to this act, and that his son even would faint at the sight of blood, according to the L.A. Times.
