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 couldnt 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 ones 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.
All the signs were there exposing him as a wacko yet TPTB chose to ignore it. Sad.
Magnotta seen here posing with one of the many animals he is accused of having either
tortured or killed.
How many Freepers would have lept to his defense saying they were only animals.
“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.
I cannot post what I’d do to him if I had a chance, or what I would wish would happen to him.
Crueslty to animals or other children
I assume at a young age, he probably had all those.
Psycho shitebag serial killers always start with killing small animals first, they do it as kids. Throw them all in a hole forever.
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.
Here’s another one in the making:
Reward increase in case of pug skinned alive
Not me. They are G-d’s creatures and hurting animals is a sin.
I’d like to drown this POS in a tub.
I don’t think very many FReepers would defend this guy’s twisted actions. If you think they would, perhaps you need to find a new forum.
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.
You probably shouldn’t read this but I’m pinging anyway ping. :(
Neither can I, for I would surly be banned. Suffice to say I would slip off the mantel of civilized behavior for awhile and drape it over the back of a chair.
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.
Check the threads, you will find them, if you really care.
