First the zombie-like Miami story of face-eating cannibal Rudy Eugene, then heart and brain eating cannibal Alexander Kinyua in Maryland, now Canadian man Luka Rocco Magnotta, dubbed now the porn 'cannibal,' who is accused of raping a former lover's corpse then eating the flesh from it after killing the former lover with an ice pick, is believed to have been spotted in Paris. Magnotta allegedly videotaped his gruesome murder before posting the video to the Internet.
Magnotta's victim Chinese national Jun Lin, an alleged former lover, was a student at Montreal's Concordia university whose torso was found in suitcase in a Montreal alley, and hand and foot were mailed to the Ottawa offices of the Liberal and Conservative parties. This was allegedly a threat to Canada's prime minister.
After the murder, which was allegedly videotaped and released on the internet, Luka Rocco Magnotta apparently fled to Europe, most likely Paris, France.
A video believed to be Luka Rocco Magnotta, surfaced on the internet showing a gruesome murder of a man stabbing another man, then dismembering the body while committing sexual acts with the corpse. Later another video surfaced showing a man again believed to be Luka Rocco Magnotta committing violent acts against cats and kittens.
The video contained at least one photo that Montreal police identified as Magnotta. Animal-rights activists had allegedly been looking for a man who was torturing and killing cats in videos posted online.
Now, Magnotta was allegedly spotted at a Paris bar having a drink, confirms Sbyibi el Bachir, manager of Hotel Studio des Batignolles in the 17th arrondissement in Paris, who says he was told this by Dominique Massonneau, manager of Le Petit Batignolles cafe.
Parisian officers suspect that Magnotta stayed in the hotel two nights with a gay man he met in a nightclub, before Magnotta's photo on the internet terrified his host, who then got in contact police after realizing who he was staying with.
Nina Arsenault, a transsexual who allegedly dated Magnotta over 10 years ago, says the former gay porn actor and suspected cannibal was deeply disturbed and got some of his anger from problems with his family.
Arsenault says Magnotta hated his dad and would sometimes joke about killing animals, killing people, even killing his family, and would often punch his own self in the head in the shower and pick fights in the streets.
This seemingly shows signs of a disturbed man and a killer.
Among Magnotta's grisly Montreal murder, police now believe Luka Rocco Magnotta may be connected to more murders and could be a serial killer.
Police say Luka Rocco Magnotta's real name is Eric Clinton Newman and he is also known by the name Vladimir Romanov, possibly others. Newman is described as a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall with blue eyes and black hair.
Police are now "engaged in a worldwide search" with help from reportedly 190 countries to capture and arrest Luka Rocco Magnotta, real name Eric Clinton Newman aka Vladimir Romanov.
