Luka Rocco Magnotta arrested in Berlin, German police say


news.nationalpost.com

Luka Rocco Magnotta was arrested in Berlin this morning, German police say.

The 29-year-old Canadian wanted for a horrific Montreal murder was arrested in an Internet cafe, according to the Bild newspaper.

The report comes just as French authorities said they were investigating the theory that Magnotta travelled from Paris to Berlin via bus.

German police spokesperson Stefan Rieldich told CP24 that a person recognized Magnotta and called police Monday.

Rieldich said Magnotta has been taken into custody and may go in front of a judge tomorrow.

Canadian officials are expected t

Well we caught the crazy.

Now let's not focus attention on him in the media, because that's exactly what he wants.

Seems they think he's a serial killer. It's good to see Interpol actually catch somebody and do it quickly and efficiently.

I'm normally against them and what they are, but in this case, keeping these crazies locked up is very very good.

No more zombie apocalypse now folks, back to our regular scheduled programming.

Thoughts?

I am glad that he has been arrested. We can't have these nutters running around murdering and eating people.

Thanks for the update

No problem, I was quite relieved as well.

I'm a bit sad that he's Canadian, that's like 2 in the last 10 years. First the Greyhound guy and now this. Giving us a bad name lol

Your post is pretty funny! Regrettably I saw this video before they even knew who the killer was, and it was revolting.

He was online at the time he got busted. What a dummy, I knew that would be his downfall. Cops were just waiting for him to log on somewhere. Unfortunately, he'll be put in PC so no one will harm him in jail. Too bad. He deserves "jail house justice"

That's even if he's found fit to stand trial.

Although I doubt he'll get off on the crazy, considering his prior records and all this stuff that we know about him now.

Even his ex's were saying he was like two people. Classic mental disorder going on here.

I am still amazed it has taken so long. He's been known as a psychopath for years.

And his name was not unknown. He was jovial about his crimes.

It took him to kill a human for his barbarity to become famous.



How many more people -- rhetorical question -- will be free to roam amongst the sane folk, before they enact a crime that only then sees them wanted, while they are free to enact barbarity on other things.

He should have been locked up years ago, perhaps it would have saved his victims life... that is what is really sad.

No, he won't get the crazy deal. Everything was premeditated including the fake ID and that will seal his fate. While he is nuts and that is self-evident, he still knew what he was doing so....off to the gallows!

Do they still do that? For the only time in my personal memory, I actually hope so.

This monster has likely done more. It most likely took him a while before he built up the courage to first post his video killing kittens... you don't spend a few years from that, to putting a video of yourself killing a human being on the internet.

Likely, he's had many victims.. only to show in public when his bravado outweighed the care he had to not be caught. Gets away with it with small animals, then proceeds to humans, but what in between? How many people did he perhaps kill, before he felt so brave as to post one on the internet.

He needs a noose...

Don't forget Bernardo and Holmoka case. In fact, I think that incident is what drew Magnotta into this type of crime. He claimed to be dating Holmoka as we have all heard, but I don't know if that has been proven. My theory is, those infamous tapes of the murders and rapes never made it to the public and Magnotta wanted to see it. So, he made his own and that's why he put it online.

As for other victims.

The Vancouver RCMP are hoping he's tied into the body parts cases from there. For years now feet and hands have been showing up on in Vancouver on the shore line, they never found the full bodies or the culprit.

So that'll be interesting.

Ya, he probably did kill in between. What' s the time difference between the kitten tapes and now? I also find that porn mags were discovered in his suite during his hasty escape from France disturbing. He seemed more concerned about self-gratification while there was a global manhunt going on. Really? He kills someone, goes to France and buys pornography?? What a creep

Oooooh yeah. The cops will be trying to tie him to that for sure. Wouldn't that be something eh? How many feet has there been now? 9-13 or something. That's a lot of people

For those calling for death penalty outright, read below "quasi biography/obituary" of the Chinese victim... more complex than first reported.

I hope restraint is used as to the sentence...

The many sides of Montreal murder victim Lin Jun

Mark MacKinnon
Beijing — The Globe and Mail

(...)

But the photographs and comments posted on his Sina Weibo account (a Chinese microblogging service that’s part Twitter, part Facebook) also reveal hints of a darker side, one that might have drawn him to someone such as Luka Rocco Magnotta, a porn actor and white supremacist who was already famous online for posting a video of his torturing of a kitten.

The 33-year-old Mr. Lin, who police have suggested might have been romantically linked to the man who murdered and dismembered him a week ago, gave himself the nickname “Justin the Villain” on his Weibo account, a moniker that seems at odds with the soft personality that comes through in most of his postings.

But dark thoughts clearly came to Mr. Lin from time to time. On Valentine’s Day last year, he posted a computer-altered photograph of himself with wild purple hair and a cracked face that turns grey around a mouth of broken and missing teeth. “My self-portrait,” he wrote beneath the repulsive image.

In another on-line posting a month before he was murdered, Mr. Lin took a photograph of an empty Montreal subway car. His mystifying caption “midnight cannibalism train,” led some Chinese Internet users to speculate Saturday that he was somehow foreshadowing his own gruesome death. (Police say some of Mr. Lin’s body parts were eaten before his hand and foot were mailed to the offices of political parties in Ottawa. Mr. Magnotta flew out from Montreal to Europe the day after the killing, and is the now target of an international police hunt.)

(...)

He was also brave. Despite the conservatism of Chinese society – where homosexuality was considered a mental illness as recently as 2001 – he was openly and seemingly proudly gay. (That homophobia lingers in China. Scattered among the thousands of posts on Weibo mourning Mr. Lin’s death were a large number suggesting it was his sexuality that lead him into a dangerous situation.)

Born Dec. 30, 1978 in the industrial city of Wuhan, the capital of China’s central Hubei province, he moved to Beijing several years ago and began preparing for his dream of moving to Canada. He studied French at the Alliance Française cultural centre, hoping it would help him qualify for immigration to Quebec.

Why in the hell would you perpetuate his behavior by posting a link to his sick-a** video?

Anyone who watches it is just as sick as he is.

i some how expected this to come up...seems like the Rothenburg cannibal case...


and for everyone who did not saw the video - dont watch it...
i have seen a lot (not to say everything) and this one was wierd: he stabbed the body, had sex with it, put a bottle in the butt, cuts of body parts, mastrubates with a chopped of hand and then he ate parts of the bum...

to see such an event is not a good experiance...
