Body parts in mail suspect posted murder online


Canadian police are looking for Rocco Luka Magnotta in connection with a murder mystery that includes body parts mailed to political parties and a dismembered torso found in the garbage.



Luka Rocco Magnotta, the only suspect in a grisly body parts in mail mystery, is believed to have filmed his alleged crime and posted it online.

A roughly 10-minute video posted May 25 called “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick” on shows a young Asian man tied to a bed and attacked with an ice pick and knife.

The killer dismembers and violates the body; police believe it’s authentic.

It “is without a doubt the sickest thing you will have ever seen in your entire life,” the website’s description of the video reads.

Magnotta, who has appeared in gay pornography, is wanted on an international warrant after police raided his Montreal apartment on Wednesday.

A janitor found a headless torso inside a suitcase left with the garbage, and they traced that to Magnotta’s bloodstained, one-bedroom apartment.

They also linked the body to a severed hand and foot mailed to a pair of Canadian political parties in Ottawa.

Included in those deliveries is a note that warned more body parts were in the mail, and the suspect might kill again, CTV News reported.

“In my opinion, his objective right now is to become one of the more notorious serial killers in our country, and there’s no doubt in my mind this guy is already planning, if not executing, his next move,” retired homicide investigator Dave Perry told CTV.

There are fears Magnotta fled to France and changed his identity, according to the Globe and Mail.

It led to Interpol adding Magnotta to its most-wanted list. 

We “have good reasons to believe that he has left the country,” a Montreal police spokesperson told the Globe.

Magnotta first gained internet notoriety a few years ago after videos surfaced of him allegedly suffocating kittens.

He then appeared on a TV report denying he dated notorious serial killer Karla Homolka, a rumour many now believe he started himself for the attention.
