Luka Rocco Magnotta (birth name Eric Clinton Kirk Newman) is a Canadian porn actor and model accused of murdering and dismembering Chinese student Lin Jun, then sending his severed limbs to political parties and schools.
He had previously been sought by animal rights groups for allegedly uploading videos of himself killing kittens. He also is alleged to be the person behind a series of animal cruelty involving cats uploaded onto Youtube in early 2010, including “1 boy 2 kittens” which shows a man thought to be Magnotta suffocating the kittens with a vacuum cleaner, and a video titled “Python Christmas” which showed a kitten being eaten alive by a python.
After a video named “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick”, allegedly showing the murder of Jun was posted online and gained significant attention, Magnotta fled Canada which prompted an international manhunt. He was apprehended on June 4, 2012 in an internet cafe in Berlin while reading news articles about himself.
The start of his trial begins April 29, 2013.
