There were also some unsubstantiated rumors about Fiore's wedding to Jenkins being based on his desire for a green card.
"He wanted her for citizenship, they made a deal," her friend Monroe said. "I heard her say the figure $10,000 on the phone. He was supposed to deposit $10,000 into her account."
Monroe said Fiore told her the marriage was a business deal but, at least for Jenkins, it became something else.
"I think the more he was around her, the more he fell in love with her," Monroe said.
A lot of people who were close to Fiore say that was an easy thing to do.
"I'm going to miss Jasmine," Beauregard said. "And we're all hurting really, really, really bad. I can't believe something so awful could happen to such a beautiful young lady."
