A reality TV contestant being sought for questioning in the grisly murder of his beautiful swimsuit model ex-wife may have crossed into Canada, according to authorities.

The Whatcom County Sheriff’s Department in Bellingham, Washington, reports there may have been a sighting of Ryan Alexander Jenkins trying to make entry into Canada by foot.

A contestant on the VH-1 Reality show Megan Wants A Millionaire, Jenkins married former Playboy model Jasmine Fiore, 28, in a quickie Las Vegas wedding in March. However, the marriage was annulled in May.

Police say that Jasmine was strangled, stuffed inside a suitcase and tossed into a trash bin. Her body was found in Orange County, CA last Saturday.

Jenkins, a 32-year-old Canadian, first reported Jasmine missing to police. He then disappeared.

Jenkins was charged in June with domestic abuse after he allegedly hit Jasmine in the arm, according to Nevada court records. He was awaiting a nonjury trial in December on the charges. “They didn’t get along. He’s really cheap and just weird,” said Jasmine’s mom Lisa Lepore.
