Reality TV contestant Ryan Jenkins allegedly left a suicide note on his computer, the Buena Park Police Department announced today. He never mentions the death of his wife, Jasmine Fiore, but he blamed her for the situation he was in--"professing both his love and disdain for her," according to TMZ.

"About half of the letter described how much he loved her, and in the same breath, he would talk about how frustrated she made him and that he felt very jealous about some of her relationships and that frustrated him immensely," a spokesperson described.

Jenkins also apologized to his family and friends for the pain he caused them in the 1 1/2-page note, titled "Will and Testament."

Fiore's body was discovered stuffed into a suitcase in August. After serial numbers on breast implant identified her, her then-missing husband became a person of interest. As he headed towards the Canadian border, he was deemed a suspect and a manhunt ensued, but shortly ended when he was found dead in a British Columbia motel.
