Police are investigating a possible link to the murder of a Chinese man in Canada after two packages containing body parts were delivered to schools in western Canada.
A suspect is being held in connection with Jun Lin’s death, and there is no confirmation these new deliveries are connected to the case.
Vancouver Deputy Police Chief Warren Lemcke described the latest discoveries made on Tuesday: “The first package containing what appeared to be a human hand was opened by staff at False Creek Elementary School shortly after 1pm today.
“Another package containing what appeared to be a human foot was found by staff at St George’s School later this afternoon.”
What is causing the speculation on a possible link is that other parts of 33-year-old Lin’s body were sent to two of Canada’s top political parties.
The man accused of killing Lin is Luka Rocco Magnotta, dubbed the ‘Canadian Psycho’.
He sparked an international manhunt after flying to France and is now being detained in Berlin’s Moabit prison after being caught in one of the city’s cyber cafes on Monday.
Magnotta has not spoken about the case, but has said he will not fight extradition back to Canada.
