On May 25, 2012, Luka Magnotta, a wannabe porn actor/model, lured to his apartment, computer science student Lin Jun, and stabbed him to death. But this was not going to be just an average murder. Magnotta videotaped his post-mortem stabbing, dismemberment and eating of the body and uploaded the gruesome footage to Canadian shock site, Bestgore. He dubbed his macabre video clip “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick.”
Days later, a janitor found a maggot-laced suitcase in a pile of rubbish outside of a low rent Montreal apartment building. Inside was a dismembered human torso, peppered in multiple stab wounds. The evidence collected would lead police to the door of this deranged killer, but it was too late; Magnotta had already fled the country to Europe, launching an international manhunt.
In the meantime, Lin Jun’s missing body parts began arriving in the mail all over Canada. Using Karla Homolka sister’s address, Magnotta packaged and sent the hands and feet of his victim to separate locations including Prime Minister Steven Harper's office, the federal Liberal Party office and two elementary schools. The victim’s head wasn't discovered for another month.
True to his many-sided persona, this book chronicles the journey that led Luka Magnotta to become known as the Cannibal Porn Star, the Butcher of Montreal and the Canadian Psycho.
