The woman whose body was found stuffed in a suitcase and tossed in an Orange County trash bin has been identified as a 28-year-old former swimsuit model who disappeared over the weekend.
The victim, Jasmine Fiore, was last seen about 8:30 p.m. Friday at her home in Los Angeles and was reported missing Saturday evening by Ryan Alexander Jenkins, 32, a Canadian, who is now a "person of interest" in the case.
Buena Park Police Lt. Gary Worrall said Tuesday that police want to speak with Jenkins, who reportedly took Fiore to a poker party in San Diego the night before she disappeared.

Authorities say Jenkins likely is heading for Canada, possibly in a black BMW. Fiore's car, a white 2007 Mercedes, is still missing.
Jenkins was a contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," a dating show in which various men compete for the affections of a woman looking to become a "trophy wife" for a well-to-do suitor, TMZ.com reported.
His profile on the show's Web site states that Jenkins is a Calgary investment banker who "claims he has left many amazing women in his life primarily because he wanted more women." He also claims that he molds "player girls" into "princesses."
The show's star, Megan Hauserman, told TMZ that Jenkins met Fiore at a Las Vegas strip club where she worked as a dancer, and they were married two days later.
Fiore's body was found Saturday morning inside a dumpster in the Orange County city of Buena Park by a man rifling through trash for recyclable bottles and cans.
Los Angeles Police Detective Carmine Sasso said investigators looking into Fiore's disappearance realized Monday night the description of the Buena Park body was similar to Fiore. Los Angeles police then contacted Buena Park police.
Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore, told City News Service earlier that her daughter was well known in some circles because she appeared as a model in advertising for radio personality Howard Stern and Las Vegas hotels.
Lepore also said her daughter has worked for Playboy as a representative and coordinator for "Girls of Golf."
"She's not a pinup girl, but she has worked for them," Lepore said.
Fiore was in Los Angeles to start a personal training business, Lepore said, adding that her daughter recently changed her last name to Kinkaid.
