Alleged Cat Killer Turns Alleged Murderer In Canada
Pet Pardons News ^ | May 30, 2012 | Ariel Wulff

Posted on 05/30/2012 11:31:35 PM PDT by Bratch

Canadian police are searching for a man in connection with a murder in Montreal. A male human torso was discovered in a suitcase in a pile of garbage at Place Lucy and Décarie in Montreal Tuesday morning. Although authorities have not released the name of the victim, they have released the name of a suspect: 29-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Magnotta is a name well known in the animal rescue community. In 2010, a video surfaced of him on YouTube, torturing and killing two kittens. Photos of Magnotta holding various terrified animals as well as a list of his aliases made the rounds of social media sites, as advocates such as The Barbi Twins, and Rescue Ink searched for leads as to his identity and location.

Magnotta is alleged to have made a number of “crush” films in which he kills defenceless kittens. In four different videos, he is reported to be seen suffocating kittens, defiling dead kittens, feeding a kitten to a python and taping a kitten to a broom handle and drowning it in a bathtub. The Barbi Twins have been tracking his crimes against animals since 2010, but police did not devote any resources to the cases of animal abuse, because they “had bigger crimes to investigate.”

At a certain point the Barbi twins stopped giving Magnotta any press because it was clear he was committing his heinous acts of torture for the attention it brought him.

Every person involved in animal rescue is well aware of the connection between animal abuse and homicide. Magnotta was seen by the animal advocacy community as a killer in the making, but authorities could not be convinced to take his crimes seriously. Now it appears he has made the jump from animals to humans, as many serial killers throughout history have.

This month a new video entitled “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick” surfaced on the Internet which appears to be an actual snuff video. The killer in the video is believed to be Luka Magnotta, stabbing, beheading, dismembering and sexually abusing the corpse of another man.

It is not known whether the victim in the video is the same man found this week in Montreal.

In addition to his crush videos, Magnotta is known for being a male model, exotic dancer and gay porn star. He was born Eric Clinton Newman in Scarborough Ontario Canada, but legally changed his name.

He is rumored to have been romantically involved with Karla Homolka, one of the most notorious killers in Canadian history, who has served a 12-year sentence for manslaughter in the Ken and Barbie murders, although he has denied any connection to her.

Magnotta has gone by a number of aliases including, but not limited to: Eric Clinton Newman, Rocco Luka Magnotta, Vladmir Romanov, Jamsey Cramsalot Inhisass and Mattia Del Santo.

Cdr. Lafrenière of the Montreal police said the crime scene is horrific, given that the body was dismembered. He said that “some body parts are missing.”

Some of the body parts turned up today. One part, a foot, was delivered to the Canadian Conservative Party headquarters headed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, while the second, a hand, was destined for Canadoan Liberal Party offices, but was discovered by Canada Post workers. Police announced today that both packages had originated in Montreal. Police issued a Canada-wide warrant today, and said they couldn’t rule out more body parts may be in the mail.

Montreal police say that Magnotta is their number one suspect, although he has no criminal record. According to Montreal newspaper La Presse, Magnotta had been renting apartment 208 in the brick building where the dismembered torso was found near. The residence is now treated as a crime scene by police. Police in masks were looking through evidence in the blood-soaked apartment today, having zeroed in on #208 because of the rotten stench emanating from the unit, says a building resident.

It probably will not be easy for police to find him. One of the many articles that Magnotta has published online was one written in 2009, titled “How to Completely Disappear and Never Be Found,” which shared a six-step process for escaping and shedding one’s identity.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Luka Magnotta, please contact Montreal Police at: 514 393-1133 Do not approach Magnotta as he is considered dangerous.

This guy is a real piece of work.

All the signs were there exposing him as a wacko yet TPTB chose to ignore it. Sad.

Can’t be prosecuting a politically-correct class. It could be construed as a hate crime.

MANY MANY MANY. I get sick to my stomach when I read people defending animal abuse and torture on this page as if that’s a conservative thing to do.

Laws against this stuff need to be strong and enforced because we all know what it leads to eventually if left unchecked.

Right, why stop a potential serial killer before he can get started when there are more important things to worry about? Those speed traps aren't going to run themselves.

People who torture animals for fun are people who intend to graduate to torturing people.

I don’t know any here, on Free Republic that would condone these heinous acts. But what do I know, I only been here for about 8 years.
Would you be so kind as to name some names of these people? Or are you a lurker who wants to stir the pot?
Come on, big boy, cough it up.

Sadly, I’ve seen Freepers defend the right of animal torturers to do what they want with their “property”. There are also those ready to suggest how to off neighbors’ cats and to joke about ways that cats should be exterminated.

They are of course in the extreme minority of posters here, but such animal threads have sometimes been a magnet for disgusting Freeper comments.

I have been on many threads dealing with animal cruelty, and there are always some who show up saying that it is no big deal since it is only an animal.

Check the threads, you will find them, if you really care.

You would be surprised how many people on FR show up to defend animal cruelty by saying that it is only an animal.

In fact there have been those who have defended it on the basis of private property.

Now 'many' isn't 'none'.

Glad to see that someone agrees with me!

I have seen a number of Freepers (maybe they were just lurkers), come on those threads and defend that action and wonder why people were getting so upset over it.

It would seem there are others on Free Republic have never seen those individuals.

They haven't been looking too hard.

I’ve been here for 10 years, and I have seen such comments. I do not agree with the FReeper that there are ‘many’ FReepers who say/believe that (a very very small minority since most FReepers have functional minds), but they definitely do exist. Give the thread some time and I am sure one will show.

See post #9.

Now, they might not condone the cruelty, but they do wonder why there is such a fuss being made over it.

They think if you are against animal cruelty you must be an animal rights defender.

Some people have a hard time dealing with distinquishing concepts, that one can be against animal cruelty and not be for animal 'rights'.

I've seen it plenty of times. Posts saying people should be allowed to do whatever they want to their animals, because they are property. Get over it.
