This is going to be one of those stories that I wish I knew less about every day.
What started with a bizarre story of a severed foot being mailed to Conservative Party HQ in Ottawa has morphed into so much more – as if getting a severed foot in the mail wasn’t bad enough. Now police are looking for a man with a bizarre history that includes links to Karla Holmolka, claims of being a male model and a bi-sexual porn star. Here’s some detail from the Sun News story…
In a grisly twist to the case, a graphic and deeply disturbing video has emerged which is purported to show the murder and dismemberment. A Montreal police source confirmed cops are in possession of a video, which also includes cannibalism, but would not say if it is the same video.
The graphic video online shows a man being stabbed to death with an ice pick and then being cut into pieces. The video was shot inside an apartment that bears a close resemblance to the unit in west-end Montreal that’s at the centre of the homicide investigation.
In a strange twist we already had footage of this man in our files. Magnotta had been interviewed by the Sun’s Joe Warmington back in 2007 when there were claims he was dating Homolka, claims he denied.
You can read Warmington’s column from the time here.
I was asked why we would give this freak the time of day and the attention that he so obviously craves. The answer is simple. He’s still on the loose.
If Luka Rocco Magnotta is responsible for these crimes then he must be brought to justice. If he is not, then he has some explaining to do about the bizarre videos he has posted online that seem to show a murder.
