Porn Actor Kills, Dismembers Victim and Mails His Body Parts to Officials

Posted: August 25, 2013 in Uncategorized

Berlin (CNN) — The international manhunt for the porn actor accused of killing and dismembering a man in Canada ended Monday in a Berlin internet cafe with the arrest of Luka Rocco Magnotta, according to authorities in Canada and Germany.

An employee of the cafe recognized Magnotta and flagged down a carload of German police cadets, who arrested Magnotta without incident at the cafe in a predominantly Turkish neighborhood of Berlin popular with students and young people.

“You got me,” Magnotta told officers after initially denying his identity, according to German police.

He had spent about an hour at the nondescript cafe perusing internet news accounts of his exploits, according to a cafe worker.

Authorities in Montreal — where police found murder victim Jun Lin’s torso in a trash bin outside Magnotta’s apartment — were “extremely relieved” about the arrest, police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere told reporters.

The case began last week when a package addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper arrived at his majority Conservative Party headquarters, and a hand was later found at a post office addressed to the minority Liberal Party, authorities said.

Lin’s death and dismemberment were allegedly captured on a graphic video posted to the Internet, according to Montreal police. It features a man — who authorities believe is Magnotta — killing another man, dismembering the corpse and performing sexual acts.

“We believe he filmed himself,” Lafreniere said last week. “It’s gross. … This is a very deranged person. He is looking for attention, and he got it, but not in a positive way.”

Authorities believe Magnotta killed Jun on May 24 or May 25, posted the video, and on May 26 fled the country by plane to Europe, most likely Paris.
