The authorities didn't give a damn when he was wanted for numerous kitty torture and killings....Now that a human body was found, they're going around looking for him like idiots!
The guy whose snuff videos surfaced on the internet?
That was with the kittens he suffocated in a vacuum bag, and the
other where he stuck the kitten in a Christmas hat and gave it to a
snake to kill.
And now this.
This is what happens when people like that and their animal abusing actions are not taken seriously.
Please DO pass on to all who can use this info.
Nationwide manhunt underway for Luka Rocco Magnotta as police search for missing body parts
WARNING: Story contains graphic content
The police had finished their work inside and Apartment 208 was pretty much stripped bare, but the stomach-turning stench and darkened red stain on the mattress left little doubt that something terrible had happened here.
'The smell of death is not funny,' Eric Schorer, the building's superintendent, said as he opened the door Wednesday afternoon. 'If you look at the bed, that's where it happened.'
Within hours, Montreal police would issue a wanted bulletin for the tenant of the one-room apartment, 29-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta, sought for one of the most gruesome killings in Montreal in recent memory.
Not only was the unidentified victim dismembered, not only were two body parts apparently mailed to political parties in Ottawa, but it has emerged that the killer filmed his crime and posted it on the Internet. The snuff film titled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick, depicting the dismemberment of an Asian male body and various indignities to the remains, has provoked online debate about its veracity since it was posted last week. Police have confirmed the video depicts the actual crime.
A janitor had stumbled on the victim's torso Tuesday when investigating a foul smell coming from a suitcase thrown out in an alley behind an apartment in Montreal's Snowdon neighbourhood. The same day, federal Conservative Party headquarters in Ottawa received a Canada Post parcel containing a human foot, and police discovered a second package containing a hand in an Ottawa postal station. That package was addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada.
Montreal police said in a statement that 'concrete elements allow police to believe' that the Ottawa and Montreal incidents are connected, but pathology tests are being conducted for confirmation.
Mr. Magnotta, who has also been known as Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov, has left abundant traces on the Internet. A Toronto native, he had worked in gay porn and as a model, but more recently he attracted attention after being linked to a 2010 online video showing kittens being suffocated with the aid of a vacuum cleaner.
A blog attributed to him and titled 'Necrophilia Serial Killer Luka Magnotta' included this March 2012 post:
'It's not cool to the world being a necrophiliac. It's bloody lonely. But I dont (sic) really care, I have never cared what people thought of me, most people are judgemental idiots. I'm unable to talk to anybody about it and there's always the knowledge that 99% of people would be repulsed by me if they found out about my feelings. Some people would even want to harm me.'
In another blog post from 2009, Mr. Magnotta offered step-by-step instruction on starting a new life in another country
'A minimum of four months is really necessary to carry out the heroic actions necessary to leave your old life behind,' he wrote, according to the Ottawa Citizen.
Mr. Magnotta denied online rumours that he was in a relationship with notorious schoolgirl killer Karla Homolka. Montreal police spokesman Ian Lafreni're said Wednesday that police believe he 'could have been a good friend' of Homolka in the past.
He had moved into his D'carie Boulevard apartment about four months ago, Mr. Schorer said. The building, built as an apartment-hotel for Expo '67, now rents out furnished flats for $490-a-month and attracts residents from newly arrived immigrants and students to drug addicts. After the janitor found the torso Tuesday, police went over the building's five security cameras and asked Mr. Schorer to identify a man putting something in the building's garbage. 'I said, that's the guy in 208,' he said.
After a Google search turned up evidence of Mr. Magnotta's film career, he had become known in the building as Porn Star. He rarely spoke to the other residents, but Mr. Schorer said he was friendly enough and always paid his rent on time.
'He seemed like a really nice guy, really,' he said. 'It's like you see on TV all the time.' It's almost a cliche or a joke.'
Neighbour Derek MacKinnon, an actor whose best-known role was as a killer in the 1980 slasher film Terror Train, was one of the few people who struck up a conversation with Mr. Magnotta.
'One day we talked, and I said, 'You and I have something in common. We're both in film, but I'm not in the same kind of film world you're in.' He just laughed,' Mr. MacKinnon said. Later Mr. Magnotta confided that he was worried about his porn career haunting him forever and asked for advice about getting into 'legitimate' movies.
Then about five days ago, he invited Mr. MacKinnon up to his apartment as they sat on the front step, where residents gather on warm nights to drink beer. 'He said, 'You've never been to my apartment, why don't you come up?' And I didn't, thank God.'
Richard Payette was running his air conditioner full blast Wednesday to fend off the smell coming from Apt. 208 across the hall. He said he never got so much as a hello out of his neighbour, but nothing in recent days suggested crimes were being committed a few metres away.
'Believe me, if there were screams or anything I would have notified somebody, but he was quiet as a mouse, this guy,' he said. Looking out his back window, he had recently noticed the suitcase among the garbage bags in the back alley. 'I was telling myself maybe I should pick that suitcase up. You know, one man's garbage is another man's treasure,' he said. 'I'm glad I didn't, but it looked too new to be in the garbage.'
The online video shows a naked male, tied to a bed frame, being attacked with both an ice pick and a kitchen knife, according to the description on a website called Best Gore. The victim is stabbed, has his throat slashed and is later decapitated and dismembered. The video was posted on Best Gore on May 25, but it is unclear when, or where, it was filmed.
'1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick is without a doubt the sickest thing you will have ever seen in your entire life,' Best Gore writes.
At the end of the video, a photo is shown of a person dressed in a purple hooded jacket or sweater, leaning over while holding what appears to be an ice pick. His or her face is mostly obscured ' the only details that can be made out are the individual's light skin, dark hair of cheekbone length and a poster for the movie Casablanca on the wall.
Montreal police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for Mr. Magnotta's arrest. Cmdr. Lafreniere said police had not recovered all of the victim's body and have not been able to identify him. In addition to the torso in the suitcase and hand and foot found in Ottawa , other body parts were found at the apartment building, he said.
'It's sick in the head,' he said of the crime. 'I've been talking to investigators who have been doing this for more than 30 years, and they have never seen anything like that.'
One of Mr. Magnotta's relatives told the Ottawa Citizen the family spent Wednesday night close to the phone in case Canada 's highest-profile fugitive calls while on the lam. 'He hurt us when he was younger and we haven't been in contact with him in a while,' the relative said. 'We heard about all of this on the news and then the police called and asked us to let them know if he calls us.'

Police find grisly scene in apartment of body-parts suspect
INGRID PERITZ AND STEVEN CHASE AND DANIEL LEBLANC
MONTREAL, OTTAWA AND OTTAWA ' From Thursday's Globe and Mail
May. 30, 2012
The scene inside Apartment 208 bears the marks of gruesome violence. A stain spreads across the double mattress and a crumpled pink sheet atop it is streaked in dried blood.
The studio apartment, located in a boxy, brick building overlooking an expressway in Montreal , became the focus of a police investigation into what has emerged as a sordid and bizarre crime that has ricocheted to federal political party offices in Ottawa .
The second-floor apartment was the home of Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, the leading suspect in a murder and dismemberment case that began after a man's torso was found stuffed in a locked suitcase in Montreal .
Police say Mr. Magnotta, a model and adult-film actor, is believed to be from Toronto and repeatedly used aliases and changed his name over the years. He was Eric Clinton Kirk Newman until he changed his name in 2006.
He is wanted in connection with the delivery of a human left foot to the Conservative Party of Canada headquarters.
A packaged hand, intercepted by Ottawa police, was also addressed to be delivered to Liberal Party offices, a source said.
Montreal police believe that the macabre murder and dismemberment was captured on video and posted on a website that specialized in gore, gaining widening circulation as the extent of the crime became public Wednesday.
'It is a video of the murder,' a Montreal police official confirmed to The Globe.
Police warn that not all of the murder victim, a male, has been recovered but refuse to say whether they believe more pieces of his body are still in Canada Post's mail system.
'We are still missing a few parts of the puzzle in terms of body parts, so yes, this is a special crime scene,' Montreal police spokesman Commander Ian Lafreniere said.
The Montreal police confirmed that the torso found in Montreal is likely from the same body as the hand and the foot that were mailed to political parties in Ottawa , although an official DNA match is still in the works.
'We have all the reasons to believe that it is linked to our homicide,' Cdr. Lafreniere said.
The Conservative Party, meanwhile, offered more details on the grisly unpacking of a foot in their offices Tuesday, revealing that Stephen Harper's campaign manager, Jenni Byrne, witnessed the opening of the bloody parcel.
The incident left Tory staffers traumatized.
'The package was brought to Ms. Byrne because it looked suspicious,' Conservative Party spokesman Fred DeLorey said. 'It was opened, Ms. Byrne examined it, saw the blood and smelled the odour and made the decision to call police.'
He added: 'It was such a horrible odour I'm sure many of us will not forget it.'
Tory sources said that package, which bore the drawing of a red heart, was addressed to the Conservative Party rather than a particular person.
CTV News reported that a note was enclosed with the severed foot indicating a total of six body parts had been distributed, and that the sender planned to kill again.
Montreal police said the murder was not a random act, as the suspect and his victim knew one another. Cdr. Lafreniere did not want to go into details about allegations that Mr. Magnotta was captured killing kittens on a video that circulated on the Internet.
'We've heard about it, but we don't have confirmation. Our main priority is to find our suspect,' Cdr. Lafreniere said.
Mr. Magnotta is also reported to have dated notorious sex killer Karla Homolka.
The video shows someone repeatedly stabbing a young man, then dismembering the corpse and committing cannibalistic acts on it.
And the Montreal police official said what the force found in Mr. Magnotta's apartment was horrific.
'For most of the officers who have been there all night long, this is the type of crime scene that they have never seen in their lives, in their career.'
Police had spent Tuesday combing through the second-floor apartment in Montreal's Snowdon district, and on Wednesday afternoon, black fingerprinting powder still covered the table and chairs. Orange police tape flew from the balcony railing over Montreal 's noisy Decarie expressway.
Whatever had happened inside in recent days had left behind a grisly trail. Building superintendent Eric Schorer came in to cart away the stained mattress; small puddles of blood lay on the box spring beneath it. More splotches of blood covered the floor of the fridge, leading to speculation that body parts may have been stored there.
A gut-turning stench filled the room.
'When I first opened the door, I almost heaved,' Mr. Schorer said. 'It's the smell of death.'
Mr. Magnotta moved in three to four months ago, Mr. Schorer said. He told the building's management he had come from Toronto to take a job caring for seniors in Montreal 's C'te St. Luc district; he also said he had a child in Montreal . However, shortly after moving in, residents in the building Googled his name and thereafter nicknamed him 'Porn Star.'
Mr. Magnotta paid his $490-a-month rent by cheque and rarely spoke to his neighbours, according to accounts from those living in the building.
On Wednesday, police began circulating a photo of a man linked to the crime whom they described as 'missing.' He was an Asian man who appeared to be in his 30s, Mr. Schorer said.
The suitcase containing the victim's remains was left at the end of a driveway behind the apartment building, along with the tenants' regular garbage. Mike Nadeau, the building janitor, says he first noticed the suitcase last Friday, and thinks it had been there several days. One tenant said the suitcase looked brand new.
Normally, Montreal garbage crews would have taken the bag away during regular garbage collection on Fridays. However, perhaps because there was an unusual amount of old furniture and other detritus left out that day, the luggage was left behind.
Mr. Nadeau approached the locked suitcase, which smelled and was swarming with flies. When he broke it open, he found a torso and shoulders without a head. The body appeared to have been dismembered.
Mr. Schorer said police seized footage from security cameras around the building.
