PORN ACTOR WANTED FOR GRISLY MURDER
Thu, 31 May 2012Authorities around the world are on the lookout for a gay porn actor accused of murdering and dismembering a man, whom he apparently knew.
Luka Rocco Magnotta (29) has been connected to the discovery of a human torso in a suitcase behind an apartment building in Montreal, Canada, as well as a hand and foot that were mailed to the Liberal Party headquarters in Ottawa.
The body parts were mailed with a note suggesting that the killer would strike again. Police have yet to confirm that all the body parts belong to the same, as yet un-named, man.
There are reports that the authorities have video footage of the murder and the dismemberment. Interpol and Montreal police, who believe Magnotta has fled the country, have issued a worldwide arrest warrant for first-degree murder.
Montreal police Commander Ian Lafrenière described Magnotta as "a very deranged man" and said that he was "looking for publicity".
He told CBC News that much of the investigation in the case has been conducted online. "We're finding all kinds of images, all kinds of information," he said.
Magnotta has worked as a stripper, porn actor and escort. Said to be bisexual, an apparent former girlfriend has claimed that he was obsessed with serial killers.
"He always wanted to be famous. I guess now he is," she told Xtra.
