Reality show contestant Ryan Jenkins, who was wanted for the murder and mutilation of his estranged wife Jasmine Fiore, has been found dead of an apparent suicide in a motel in Hope, British Columbia. RCMP responded to a call after staff found the wanted fugitive hanging in his room.

The 32-year-old was wanted in California on first-degree murder charges after Fiore’s dismembered body was found in a trash bin in Buena Park, near Los Angeles.

Jenkins appeared on the VH1 reality show Megan Wants a Millionaire, which was canceled by the network Friday.
