    Murder Victim Jasmine Fiore ID'd by Implants; Hotel Manager Says Suspect Seemed "Normal"

    The Law & Order aspects of this case are really starting to pile up.

    Not being able to use fingerprints or dental records, authorities ultimately identified the remains of model Jasmine Fiore using the serial number on her breast implants, E! News confirmed Friday.

    "Based on the fact that the victim's fingers had been cut off and her teeth pulled out, the coroner had to find other medical means to identify the victim," said Orange County District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Farrah Emami.

    "They were able to do that using a serial number on her breast implant. We believe the defendant cut off the victim's fingers and pulled out all of her teeth to make it more difficult for law enforcement to identify Ms. Fiore."

    Police have not been able to locate any of Fiore's teeth or fingers.

    Meanwhile, the "defendant" Emami spoke of is reality-TV contestant turned murder suspect Ryan Jenkins, whom police believe fled to his native Canada after strangling his 28-year-old ex-wife, stuffing her body in a suitcase and abandoning it in a Buena Park dumpster.

    The general manager at the hotel where Fiore was last seen alive tells E! News that as far as he was told, the couple seemed "completely, fundamentally normal" when they checked in last week.

    Authorities said that Jenkins and Fiore checked into L'Auberge Del Mar in San Diego on Thursday, Aug. 13, and while Jenkins was spotted leaving the following day, Fiore wasn't seen again.

    "We had no reports of anything regarding this couple at all," L'Auberge general manager Michael Slosser said, adding that the housekeeper who cleaned their room did not find any suspicious materials.

    Police have since searched the room and confiscated multiple items, he added.

    "I can't confirm what I gave them or what they took," Slosser told E! "[Police] were here Wednesday. They've had access to the spaces that this couple was at. The detectives have spoken to the people they needed to talk to. As far as we know the investigation here is concluded."
