Police Widen Hunt for Canadian Psycho Suspect on Video
An online video allegedly showing one man dubbed the “Canadian Psycho” murder another with an ice pick has been revealed by police to be showing a Canadian porn star named Luka Rocco Magnotta in the act of fatally stabbing his boyfriend, Lin Jun.
The 29 year old Magnotta is being nicknamed the “Canadian Psycho” by the news media because music from the film release “American Psycho” is playing in the background of the video while the grisly murder takes place.
The manhunt has now moved from Canada to France after Magnotta allegedly dismembered his boyfriend and began mailing some of his body parts to government and postal offices.
Although there is no conclusive evidence that Magnotta has fled Canada, reliable sources say he is currently in France and may be operating under one of two aliases he has used in the past, Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov.
Police said he often wears disguises or pretends to be a female.
