On Wednesday, Montreal police confirmed a head found Sunday in a Montreal park was that of Mr. Lin, 33, the final missing part of his dismembered body.

According to the Associated Press, the head was found Sunday in Park Angrignon, which is located a few miles south of Magnotta’s apartment.

Montreal police spokesperson Anie Lemieux said investigators made their way to Park Angrignon on Sunday afternoon after the major crimes unit received a tip.

The head had been the final missing piece of the gory puzzle as prosecutors build their case against the 29-year-old small-time sex-trade worker and wannabe reality-show star who's currently awaiting trial on first-degree murde

Mr. Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase behind Mr. Magnotta’s Montreal apartment. Other body parts were mailed to federal political parties in Ottawa and two schools in Vancouver.

The case took a horrific turn when a video was posted to a gore website that shows a man tied to a bed, stabbed to death with an ice pick and dismembered.

The self-described porn actor and prostitute managed to flee Canada but was arrested in Germany last month. He was flown back to Canada in a military aircraft and has pleaded not guilty to charges of killing Lin and then dismembering and cannibalizing his body, Reuters reported.

Magnotta was scheduled to reappear in court on January 9.
