At this hour, police are hunting for Rocco Magnotta, also known as Luka Magnotta, in connection with the torso found in Montreal yesterday and the body parts mailed to political parties. Luka Magnotta is a male model and porn star, originally from Toronto but now living in Montreal.
This story is just developing, but Luka Magnotta has left quite the digital trail. His site is currently offline (it's back), likely crushed by the traffic this type of sensational story generates, but his YouTube channel is up, containing tame videos like this one.
What's far less tame are the videos he allegedly made of him killing, mutilating, dismembering and having sex with the dead bodies of cats and kittens. One such video is titled "1 Boy 2 Kittens Video" and other is "Vacuum Kitten Killer Hunted Edition". There's no way I'm linking to either of these, but I will embed a video about the search for Luka Magnotta, the serial kitten killer.
More recently, it seems Luka Magnotta has progressed from kitten killing to murdering people. In a video titled "1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick Video", a young man in a purple hoodie literally kills a man with an ice pick, before committing acts of necrophillia and cannibalisim. A Facebook group ForGreatJustice believes this snuff film to be from Luka Magnotta.
And that leads us to today and one of the more bizarre news stories to come out of this country. Magnotta, who hasn't been seen for several days, is the prime suspect in this investigation, and he may be tough to track down. He once wrote this article on "How To Disappear Completely And Never Be Found". He failed to follow his own advice, however, giving himself a week instead of the self-recommended four months.
When making the decision to disappear, it is very important to understand that this is not a process that can be successfully accomplished overnight. For best results under normal circumstances, a minimum of four months is really necessary to successfully carry out the heroic actions necessary to leave your old life behind. This is certainly not an undertaking to be entered into lightly - be completely sure of yourself before you commit to this.
That's quite the digital trail... Here's a SUN TV interview with him from five years ago when there were rumours of him dating Karla Homolka. It goes without saying, if you see Luka Magnotta, call 911.
