Canada police launch manhunt for porn actor in severed body case

Canadian porn star Rocco Magnotta triggered a nationwide search in France on Friday, since he is suspected of killing his lover, making the video of his brutal act and later dismembering his body.

After a thorough inspection, the alleged victim of Rocco Magnotta’s inhuman crime was revealed to be 33-year-old Chinese student Jun Lin.

As a result of the gruesome crime committed by Magnotta, Interpol on Thursday issued a Red Notice wanted-persons alert for Magnotta.

Senior French officials are of the view that Rocco Magnotta is presently in France, since he has been going off and on to France in the past couple of years. They believe that last week, before the details of the crime had come to the fore, Magnotta flew from Montreal to Paris.

Magnotta uploaded a video showing a man, who is apparently recognized as Magnotta, killing another naked and tied man with an ice pick. After the murder, the video further features Magnotta dismembering the corpse of Jun Lin and performing sexual acts with it.

During the course of the video, Magnotta also reveals that he has slashed the victim’s throat.

The video that is no longer available on the internet is being tracked by the police along with its source.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, a hand and a foot were mailed in a blood-stained parcel to Conservative Party’s headquarter based in Ottawa.

Police also recovered a torso without head behind Rocco Magnotta’s apartment in Montreal. Although the results from the forensic tests are yet to be declared, the police have confirmed that the body parts found are that of Jun Lin.

Officials in Montreal suspect that Magnotta might have fled to North America on the basis of evidence they found after search of his flat and also from his blog he wrote, suggesting ways to disappear.

Jun Lin, a denizen of Wuhan from the province of Hubei in China, went missing mysteriously a day before his dismembered corpse was found. He had been a student of Montreal’s Concordia University.

Rocco Magnotta, also bearing the names "Eric Clinton Newman" and "Vladimir Romanov", worked as a bisexual porn model and actor.

He was also seen in two separate videos in 2010. One of the videos showed Magnotta suffocating to death two kittens in a plastic bag, while the other featured him killing another kitten by throwing it to a snake.
