Self Proclaimed ‘Porn Star’ Famous for Animal Abuse Suspect in Murder Now


MONTREAL – Montreal police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for Luka Rocco Magnotta — a man with a disturbing online profile who is now accused of murder after the grisly discovery of a torso, whose severed foot and hand were mailed to the Conservative and Liberal party offices in Ottawa.

Police also confirmed that the suspect at large in the gruesome murder and dismemberment once dated notorious sex killer Karla Homolka, though in 2007 Magnotta denied he dated the notorious sex killer.

A video purporting to show Magnotta stabbing a man repeatedly on a bed has been circulating online and was sent to the Montreal Gazette. The Gazette has been unable to confirm that this is the same video that police received. The Gazette has not been able to confirm whether the video was staged.

Police have obtained a disturbing video of the crime and are taking steps to have it removed from a website where it was posted, The Gazette has confirmed. 

I did not see the video and I am not looking for it in order to post a link. Sorry, you wanna see you have to look. That does not sound like something pleasant to watch.

Investigators are seeking the public’s aid in locating the 29-year-old Magnotta, who may also go by the names Eric Clinton, Kirk Newman or Vladimir Romanov.

“We really need the public’s help on this,” said SPVM spokesman Ian Lafrenière. The assistance of residents in the area where the body was discovered had also helped the investigation advance quickly.

Magnotta is said to be a stripper and a porn star. The suspect was not previously known to police, Lafrenière said.

A headless, limbless torso was discovered in a suitcase with a heap of garbage Tuesday at Place Lucy and Decarie Boulevard in Montreal’s Snowden neighbourhood. At about the same time Tuesday, an employee of Conservative Party of Canada headquarters in Ottawa opened a package that contained a severed foot. A second parcel containing a hand was later located at a Canada Post sorting facility in Ottawa.

Wednesday, police linked the severed appendages to the torso and transferred the case to Montreal Police.

Montreal Police focused their attention on a second floor apartment in a building on Decarie near where the torso was found Tuesday in a suitcase on the curb with a pile of garbage.

The tenant of the building is being sought by police, said residents of the building.

The apartment smelled terrible and it appears the homicide was carried out on a bed in the small apartment. A reporter saw a mattress stained with blood Wednesday afternoon.

Residents also said police believe the torso belongs to an Asian man who is apparently missing. The police have been showing them a photo of the Asian man on Wednesday.

Residents described Magnotta as a very quiet man who kept to himself. The building’s superintendant joked about it.

“It’s like you see in the movies. It’s always the good neighbour. It’s the cliché,” he said.

He is right, it is usually the quiet ones.

Residents of the building said they believe Magnotta worked in the gay porn industry.

One said the only time Magnotta spoke to him was about five days ago. He asked the man, an actor, how he could get started in “legitimate” movies.

Residents of the building said they also saw Magnotta wearing a bizarre wig days ago and that they commented on his strange appearance.

Employees at a Canada Post office just a few blocks away from where the suspect lives said the police have not questioned them about the possibility of body parts being mailed from their location. Both employees were aware that a torso had been found near their location. But they said no one had asked them about the case until two reporters asked them about the strange story Wednesday afternoon.

Magnotta was known online for abusing animals not for his acting even in porn. He was known on message boards, like 4chan, especially for the video where he put a kitten (2?) in a plastic bag and filmed them as they died. There were other videos but I think that one was the first to get ‘popular’. (Not in a good way.)

Magnotta has also been the subject of an international social media campaign for allegedly killing kittens, videotaping their deaths and posting the videos online.

Animal rights activists around the world mobilized to identify him and offered a $5,000 to bring him to justice. The online efforts to find him may have fuelled some of Magnotta’s online writings defending his reputation and complaining about “cyber stalking” and “media propaganda” on his website www.Luka-Magnotta.net

“I do not feel the necessity to address the specific accusations made in the posts since they are so far from my character that responding to them will give them more credibility than they will ever hold. If the readers of these posts can look behind the storyline that has been created, they will see that there is no reference to a concrete transaction or event that has taken place with any specific person in which I have committed any illegal activity,” he wrote on one of his eponymous web sites.

“Many hoax websites are created using my image and name, posing as me to seem more believable in respect to the type of audience these website have, I feel I don’t need to list them specifically but people need not be told, not to believe what they read and to take it as fact,” he write in one article entitled “Cyber Stalking” beside a photo of him shirtless and reclining.

It almost seems as if he is denying doing it, but the videos were there and people did see them. I think you can still find them just not on YouTube and I am not risking a virus to see poor kitties killed. Again, you want to see it (for proof or anything else) go find it yourself.

Perhaps if the authorities had stepped in when those videos went viral they would not be trying to identify a human victim. We, society, needs to start paying more attention to those that abuse animals.

Police have not released the victim’s name. An autopsy is expected to reveal how the man was killed and whether he was dead before being dismembered, police said.

The Gazette’s Jan Ravensbergen, Canadian Press and the Ottawa Citizen contributed to this report.

CBS story about Luka

Killer started with killing cats on YouTube.

  1. Whats up this week? Bath salts man chews off homeless man’s face and now this. might have to sleep with both eyes open :shock:

  2. Seems the journos at The Sun newspaper had already contacted Scotland Yard about this freak ….

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4349654/Cannibal-on-run-after-chopping-up-man-warned-The-Sun-I-cant-stop-killing.html

    • Again, law enforcement has to begin taking a more serious look at people that abuse animals. If they had in this case a murder could have been avoided.

  3. “He is right, it is usually the quiet ones.” Why does it have to be the quiet ones? What did we do to earn this stereotype? I know, statistics show it to be true…

    I agree animal abuse should be taken more seriously because of how it relates to people like this guy. This site has some good points on that.

    http://www.pet-abuse.com/pages/abuse_connection.php

    4Chan also has made similar findings in some of the people they “bully” for posting videos of abusing animals, but the police don’t take them seriously. But even if it was totally unrelated to anything else, people who enjoy torturing animals….Gggrrrrr!!!!!

    • Thank you for the information.
      It is suspected that he is the one that posted the first link to his video on 4 Chan.

  4. Over and over again it has been proven that animal abuse leads to violent crimes against humans, and yet nothing is done to intervene with these people. when will you humans learn?

  5. Violence against living creatures tends to escalate, and here is an example. I suspect that this is not his first violent crime against a human being, but probably the first that was noticed. The very name of Karla Homolka disgusts me. Like many, I never bought her “victim” act…

    • I never bought her as a victim either.

      • I don’t think that courts and/or juries are very prepared to accept the fact that stone-cold female killers exist. Sometimes excuses are made for them that are not made for men. Evil is evil. This is a woman who may be guilty of the sexual torture and sadistic murder of her own sister.

    • The police agree that he could have killed before.
      “”The kind of guy that’s looking for attention”: Cops fear gay porn star ‘cannibal’ fugitive may have murdered before”

      http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/cannibal-killer-luka-magnotta-may-861256

      Now that they have caught him we might just find out.

      • Huh. Thanks for the link. Yeah, it just seems off that on his first murder, he’d send the body parts out to advertise it. He’s probably worked his way up, experimenting as he goes, morbid as that is. He clearly wants the fame and/or notoriety and that is probably a long-standing desire he has fed for some years.

    I agree with you. Society in general seems to have a very hard time with females commiting horrible crimes. Look at mother’s that kill their kids compared to father’s that kill them.The sentences are usually lighter for the females.
