The body of slain model Jasmine Fiore was so mangled, it had to be identified by the serial numbers on her breast implants, a spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney tells Usmagazine.com.

Fiore's fingers and teeth were removed to "hinder law enforcement's ability to identify her," spokesperson Farrah Emami tells Us. After she was strangled, her body was stuffed into a suitcase and discarded in a dumpster in Buena Park, Calif. over the weekend.

Her ex-husband, VH1 reality star Ryan Jenkins, was charged with her murder Thursday and is believed to be on the run in Canada. Jenkins wed Fiore in Las Vegas in March, but their marriage was annulled in May after a "big blowout," according to Fiore's mom, Lisa.

Jenkins "is clearly dangerous, desperate and maybe armed. He has already murdered the person he was supposed to love the most. We are asking Jenkins to turn himself in and really appealing to people's moral right to come forward and turn him in because he is clearly dangerous," Emami says.

The U.S. Marshals Service is also offering a $25,000 reward for information on Jenkin's whereabouts. The DA's spokesperson says Jenkins has "a great deal of financial resources...it appears his family has money," which he used to leave the country.

According to TMZ.com, Jenkins was spotted leaving the L'Auberge Del Mar hotel near San Diego Friday morning carrying a suitcase that may have contained Fiore's body.

Emami says surveillance video shows Fiore and Jenkins checking into the hotel Thursday, but just Jenkins checking out Friday. "The victim was not seen leaving with him, and she was not seen alive again," she adds.

Fiore's family is "so devastated," Emami tells Us.

Meanwhile, the producers behind the VH1 show in which he was supposed to appear, Megan Wants a Millionaire, say future airings will be "postponed." They're blaming an error by a Canadian court clerk as to why he was able to pass a background check and star on the series.

Jenkins – who earned the nickname "Smooth Operator" on Millionaire – has a criminal history in his Calgary hometown. He was arrested in 2005 for punching an ex girlfriend who told the Calgary Herald he was a "sex addict" who had violent temper tantrums.

He was sentenced to 15 months of probation for assault, according to the Alberta, Canada Ministry of Justice (via the Associated Press).
