One can only hope that OJ Simpson doesn't offer advice on the "Find the Killer Reward Scheme" to the Jenkins Family. Though tragic to the family losing a son, one must look at the facts the police and forensics have concluded.
Editor’s Note: Following is an unedited statement provided to the Calgary Herald by Dan Jenkins, the father of Calgarian Ryan Jenkins, who was the subject of a week-long international manhunt after he was charged with the murder of his ex-wife, Jasmine Fiore.
Statement of Dan Jenkins
August 28, 2009
In the spring of this year, Ryan travelled to L.A. and spent five weeks filming a reality TV show entitled “Megan Wants a Millionaire.” After the show was finished filming, he went with a friend to Las Vegas. While there he met Jasmine and three days later married her in a Las Vegas wedding. Our family was shocked, but it was done. I never got a chance to meet Jasmine. They flew to Calgary while I was away on a business trip. Before I got back they had left to go to Jasmine’s grandmother’s funeral that had died unexpectedly.
