Details of Canadian killer case revealed
Montreal Police Service Chief Denis Mainville (C) answers questions on Magnotta’s case. Authorities claim Magnotta filmed the slaying in his flat in Montreal. EPA photoPackages containing a human foot and hand were discovered at two schools in Vancouver on June 5 in what could be the latest gruesome twist in the case of a Canadian porn actor suspected of dismembering and eating his former lover.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, was arrested on June 4 at a Berlin Internet cafe on suspicion he murdered a 33-year-old Chinese student, Jun Lin, in Canada last month with an ice pick and hacked apart his body while filming the grisly killing.
Cafe owner Kadir Anlayışlı, a Turkish citizen, told German television station NTV: “’That’s him,’ I said. 100 percent that’s him. So I went outside and stopped a police car and said: ‘There’s someone sitting in there that looks like the porno-killer.’” The case triggered an international search that started in Montreal and shifted to Paris before ending in dramatic fashion in Berlin. Police said they could not immediately confirm if the body parts in question were the missing extremities of Jun, whose hand and foot were discovered last week when they were mailed to Canada’s top political parties. Video footage of what authorities believe to be the killing seems to show the suspect eating the body, said police in Montreal.
Extradition to Canada
Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said that although police have not been able to conclusively confirm it, they suspect Magnotta ate parts of the victim’s body. Authorities allege Magnotta filmed the slaying in his Montreal studio apartment and posted it online.
German authorities have asked Canada to provide the necessary documents for Magnotta’s extradition, Agence France-Presse reported. Magnotta told authorities he would not fight extradition to Canada. A copy of what police believe is the video of the killing, viewed online by the Associated Press, shows a man with an ice pick stabbing another naked, bound male. He also dismembers the corpse and performs sexual acts with it.
