Luka Magnotta, the Canadian porn star who has been the subject of an international manhunt over the past few days and is charged with murdering a man and sending his body parts to political parties in the mail, has been arrested in an internet cafe in Berlin, Canadian news outlets are reporting.

German police Chief-Supt. Stefan Rieldich told CBC News that Berlin authorities arrested Magnotta in an internet café Monday at 2 p.m. local time. "As far as I know he was arrested alone, and there was no struggle," Rieldich said. Magnotta is being held at the Berlin prison and is expected to be brought in front of a judge on Tuesday....

Montreal police said Magnotta left the city on an international flight on May 26. According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, Magnotta arrived in France at Paris's Roissy airport the same day. Interpol issued a notice about Magnotta to 190 countries on Thursday. Montreal police are calling it one of the largest manhunts in their history.

Police had been searching in France and earlier today there were reports that Magnotta may have fled Paris by bus.

Magnotta is suspected of dismembering 33-year-old Chinese student Jun Lin, who was studying in Montreal. Lin was reported missing on May 29th.

Magnotta appeared in gay adult films and disturbing videos in which kittens were killed. Last week, a rapid sequence of events unfolded in which the grisly crime scene was discovered in Magnotta's apartment, a human torso was located in the trash behind that apartment, and body parts, in including a foot sent to conservative party headquarters, began turning up in the mail.

  3. Thank the Gods! All this animalistic/canibalistic muder going on right now is really scary. At least this one is no longer on the loose.

  4. 'Look for severe childhood disturbances associated with violence. Our Billy wasn't born a criminal, Clarice. He was made one through years of systematic abuse. Billy hates his own identity, you see, and he thinks that makes him a transsexual. But his pathology is a thousand times more savage and more terrifying.'

  5. His ugly skanky ass appeared in two gay porn videos for a bottom rung tier studio, "porn star" seems a bit much.

  6. Well, you can be a flaming nellie queen *AND* a monstrous psychopathic murderer at the same time. Interesting....you learn something new every day. It's such a pity that Canada does not have executions.

  7. Extradite his ass to China and let him get a bullet in the back of the head.

  8. @Tim,

    'FBI publishes truths about serial killers'

    [http://www.examiner.com/article/fbi-publishes-truths-about-serial-killers]

    He not surprisingly comes from a broken family. Parents divorced; it's believed they were still teenagers when he was born. He and another sibling were raised apparently by grandparents, mostly in a nondescript Toronto suburb. Family members and fellow students at school say they remember him as being 'different' and effete from an early age. Several say he was always a huge liar and very conceited.

    I think his extreme behavior is mostly rooted in his necrophilia fetish. Some psychologists I've read say this is believed to be rooted in childhood neglect [lack of bonding with mother, etc.], not necessarily abuse.

    I suppose the worse thing for him would be to be quickly convicted, removed from the limelight and locked away for life [in solitary], never to be heard from again. I think for a guy like him, that would be a fate worse than death. But the Canadian justice system is pretty lax.

  9. I was reading in Daily Mail (they have stills) of him being rather notorious before cannibalism for putting kittens in plastic bags and filming them die and posting it. Sort of an underground "internet legend" or something. Like Mom used to say "Well, you know how this is going to end."

    Funny how they knew to find him in a cyber-cafe.

  10. @Hunter,

    I remember reading several books by an American named William Shirer [The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,Berlin Diary] who wrote about his experiences living in Berlin during the Nazis rise to power up to about late 1940. He had intimate up close interaction with many of it's leading members through his job as a reporter, and reported every night back to America on CBS radio.

    Shirer mentions on several occasions what he recognized as the 'effeminate' mannerisms and behavior of some of the leading Nazis, including Hitler himself. His observation was that these effete Nazis were the most sadistic and worse of the bunch.

    If you go back and read what the media of the period said about the Nazis and Hitler himself during this period, even when they just came to power or as early as the late 1920s, there's repeated 'code' language used that references homosexuality and effeminate males, so this must have been noticed by many people at the time.

  11. The NY Times magazine had an article about pathological children and what can you do. It appears that some kids are just like this -- liars, manipulators, socially deviant and so on. But there isn't much you can do, and psychologists are trying a variety of treatments to identify them early and perhaps form a treatment. But who wants their kid labeled a psychopath at an early age?

    Sounds like this guy is one of them, and I'm not surprised this is how he's been all his life. Very sad, but nothing you can do. He needs to be locked up and put as far away from people as possible for the rest of his life.

    I suspect that he's been following the story on the internet with glee -- it gave him the noteriety he craves, and he can think he's brilliant for eluding the police. Now that he's arrested, he can be a real celebrity -- flashing cameras, news articles. He's loving this all now. And he figures that he's smart enough that he can beat this and go free.

    Only when he's been in jail for a few years and realizes that no one cares about him or what he's done anymore will it really sink in. But maybe ti will never sink in.

  12. He must be a small time porn star. I've never heard of him. He looks nothing like that hot men of Titan, Raging Stallion or Hot House. Who is this ugly weirdo?

  13. To atone for his sins, he should be put to death, his organs harvested and distributed to people who need them.

  14. killing him solves nothing. people like this need to be studied. locked up, forever, and thoroughly studied.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Jun 4, 2012 2:55:23 PM


  15. Did he actually film the killing of the man in the video? Does anyone know if the victim was conscious when he was murdered?

    Posted by: Justin | Jun 4, 2012 3:13:13 PM


  16. @Justin-the vitims throat was cut before the whole stabbing, dismemberment, cannibal, rape
    part happened. Unfortunately I watched parts of the video and Im sooo sorry I did.

    Posted by: mattsy | Jun 4, 2012 4:56:42 PM


  17. I saw the video, and it is extremely graphic and disturbing. At one point the victim is alive and the next, his throat is slashed, so no it doesn't show the actual killing per se. But really, what IS shown is absolute proof that this guy Magnotta is truly insane and evil. He obviously fits the profile of a serial killer and would have continued.

    The video is at bestgore.com as "1 lunatic 1 icepick" if your curiosity really begs you to see it, but their servers are overloaded most of the time.

  18. Magnotta wanted to be caught. He posted videos on youtube to his "fans" yesterday.

    it's infamy he's after. dont' give it to him.
    forget his name and instead remember the name JUN LIN.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Jun 4, 2012 5:08:34 PM


  19. Well, I said it wouldn't take long and I was right. He was way too narcissistic to stay hidden for long. He feeds off his own notoriety. It nourishes him and he couldn't refrain from accessing the news about himself.

  20. Put him a large plastic bag to suffocate like those poor kittens, then take him and carve him up.

    Posted by: Michael | Jun 5, 2012 4:34:28 AM


  21. "Put him a large plastic bag to suffocate like those poor kittens, then take him and carve him up. "

    Yes, those poor kittens.

    Oh, and he also slaughtered a human being, so he should probably be prosecuted for that too.

  22. Anyone have the link to the grizzly video? Curiosity has got the best of me.

    Posted by: Robert | Jun 5, 2012 5:43:50 PM


  23. I think he's terribly handsome and sexy and these dreadful things being said about him cannot be true. Just like all that made-up nonsense about the lovely Jeffrey Dahmer.
