Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, dubbed as the gay cannibal, ‘Canadian Psycho’ and bi-sexual cannibal has been caught by authorities in the German capital of Berlin after a worldwide manhunt was put in place. The self-glorifying porn star/actor was first detected in France by police who used his cellphone as a beacon, but was believed to have been traveling to evade police.
In an undated photo released, he was seen at an airport security checkpoint which somehow he passed.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, a Canadian born as Eric Clinton Newman went under several aliases including prostitute and stripper ‘Angel’ and Vladimir Romanov and is accused of killing his lover, Jun Lin, 33, on or around May 24 or 25th with an ice pick in his flat, eating his flesh and dismembering him and then placing the video online, as reported on MemphisRap.com. Jun Lin, a Chinese student at Montreal Concordia University, torso was discovered outside of Luka Rocco Magnott’s apartment in a suitcase and the remaining parts of his body were delivered to several political parties which included the federal Conservative party in Ottawa and a hand that was sent to the federal Liberal party.
What led to the disturbed Magnotta’s capture was he was spotted by a cafe employee, Kadir Anlayisli who identified him as soon as he walked into the establishment. According to reports, Kadir Anlayisli told a police officer that Magnotta was in their building which prompted a call for more officers.
The model-looking blue-eyed Luka Rocco Magnotta was seen at a cubicle looking at stories of himself at the Helin Tele and Internet Cafe on Karl-Marx-Strasse in Berlin.
According to police, Luka Rocco Magnotta did not resist arrest and when he was asked if he was who they were looking for, he first tried to give a false name and than told them, ‘Yes, that’s me.’
The news of Luka Rocco Magnotta comes after a week of cannibalism, first with face-eating cannibal Rudy Eugene, then with heart and brain eating cannibal Alexander Kinyua.
Meanwhile, Luka Rocco Magnotta is awaiting extradition to Canada and is believed to be connected with other crimes.
