Luka Rocco Magnotta

Luka Rocco Magnotta’s real name is Eric Clinton Kirk Newman. He was born in July 24, 1982. He was a model and porn actor that is accused for dismembering the body of Lin Jun, an International student from Wuhan and mailing his severed limbs to political parties and elementary schools.

Magnotta left the country after a video about the murder was supposedly posted online. The Interpol started an international manhunt. He was later arrested in an internet café in Berlin while he is reading news about himself.

Magnotta began working as a porn actor and an escort model in 2003. He also appeared as a pin up model on one magazine back in 2005. He also made some television appearance during the year 2007. He declared bankruptcy in March of 2007 but was discharged later that year.

Rumors started to circulate that Magnotta is in a relationship with Karla Homolka, which is a high profile killer. Though he denied about the affair, during the investigation of the murder, the authorities told the press that Magnotta and Homolka dated. However, they later retracted that statement and said that they do not have enough evidence to prove that.

May 25, 2012, when a video entitled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick was uploaded in the website The video shows a naked man bounded into a bed frame and was repeatedly stabbed using an ice pick and a knife. He then proceeds in dismembering the body and committing an act of necrophilia. The police was able to obtain a more elaborate form of the video and said that Magnotta also perform cannibalism.

Early reports about the video were dismissed by the officials. Later on they found out that the video was authentic after body parts of the victim were sent to political parties and elementary schools. The body was identified to be Jun Lin also known as Justin Lin.  His bodies were cremated after.

As of the moment, Magnotta is inside the prison awaiting his trial.
