Rocco Luka Magnotta, also known as Eric Clinton Newman, was arrested this morning in Berlin. The Canadian porn actor is a suspect in the murder of Lin Jun, a 33-year-old student from China, whose body parts were subsequently mailed to political parties. Megan Gibson writes:
Though the discovery of the body parts already made for grim headlines, the unearthing of a “snuff film” — a video of the murder taking place — on a Canadian website added another layer of horror. Called “1 Lunatic 1 Ice-Pick”, the 11-minute video depicts the murder, sexual assault and dismemberment of Lin. Canadian police say they believe the video is authentic.
Magnotta, who has also been known by the names Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov, had a disturbing online presence and promptly became a suspect. News stories revealed that he had once been thought to have once dated a notorious Canadian serial killer, had blogged about necrophilia and posted a video online showing him suffocating kittens.
They found him in an internet café. I guess he just couldn't make the break.
