Transatlantic hunt for Canadian suspect in grizzly murder
Text size Aa Aa

Police both sides of the Atlantic are now hunting Luka Rocco Magnotta, a Canadian porn star suspected of murder.

Detectives say the 29-year-old may be wearing a wig or disguised as a woman.

He is believed to have killed and dismembered a man in his Montreal apartment and posted body parts to political groups. He then bought a plane ticket to France, although there is no proof he actually used it.

Commander Ian Lafreniere of the Montreal Police told journalists: “There is a warrant issued in 190 countries in the world now, looking for this suspect, and we need to find him.

“We need a DNA match but the victim will be 33-year-old victim Jun Lin. He’s a student from Concordia University. He was here in Montreal. He’s a Chinese person, but he was here for studying”

Police are trying to get a video apparently of the murder of Jun Lin removed from the internet. They are still waiting for DNA proof that the body parts in the post are those of the student.
