The body of a woman stuffed into a suitcase found over the weekend was connected to the woman the LAPD Missing Persons unit was searching for today. Police asked the public's help late last night in the search for 28-year-old Jasmine Fiore, a model who had recently moved from Las Vegas to the Fairfax District in Los Angeles to start up a personal training business. She was last seen Friday around 8:30 p.m. at her home on the 800 block of Edinburgh Avenue. On Saturday morning, a homeless person sifting through a trash container in the city of Buena Park on the 7400 block of Franklin Street found a woman described as in her twenties, but police had not identified her until today.
