Although the sought-after suspect, Ryan Jenkins, was found dead Sunday evening in a British Columbia motel room, authorities are still searching for Jasmine Fiore's car and the possibility of a second suspect in the case. Her white Mercedes sedan is still missing and may hold the key to clueing police in if there is a second suspect. “The Mercedes is still missing. It is the biggest piece of the puzzle. We hope it will contain evidence that will help us determine what happened,” said Sgt. William Kohanek to the LA Times. “Did someone else drive it away?" Fiore's body was found stuffed in a suitcase on August 15th. The day before Jenkins was at a hotel in Del Mar. When he checked into the Canadian motel while on the run last week, there was a woman accompanying him who is now a "person of interest."
