Murdered model Fiore laid to rest

The swimsuit model’s former husband, U.S. reality TV contestant Ryan Jenkins, was charged with her murder but he committed suicide in a motel in Canada just days after Fiore’s remains were discovered by police.

A funeral for the busty blonde was held at her childhood home in Santa Cruz at the weekend (19-20Sep09), where more than 200 close friends and family gathered to pay their respects.

Fiore’s mother, Lisa Lepore, and her ex-boyfriend Robert Hasman read moving tributes and shared memories of the model to mourners at the “extremely emotional event”.

A public memorial for Fiore is set to be held in Las Vegas next month (Oct09), reports
