Suspect: Luka Rocco Magnotta features on a number of lurid Internet sites.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
A video that purportedly shows a suspect wanted in connection with the Ottawa–Montreal body parts case brutally killing and sexually assaulting a naked man appears on a Canadian-operated website.
Police are now studying the gruesome video, which was believed to have been taken by the suspect, identified today by police as Luka Rocco Magnotta.
A man by the same name as Magnotta — who is featured on a number of lurid websites — is a low-budget gay porn star suspected of appearing in a number of kitten-killing videos.
In the past, Magnotta was rumoured to have been romantically linked to Karla Homolka, ex-wife of notorious killer Paul Bernardo, who served 12 years in prison for her role in the murders of Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy.
Magnotta, however, vigorously denied those allegations, telling the Toronto Sun in 2007 he had never even met Homolka.
Montreal police said other body parts were found in the apartment where the homicide took place, but wouldn’t say which ones.
