Montreal police say they’re looking for a low-level porn star in connection with the dismembered body case we reported earlier today.
The suspect is
Rocco Luka Magnotta, Luka Rocco Magnotta 29, originally from Toronto. An article on CP24 says:
A man with that same name has a huge presence on the Internet, as a low-level adult film actor and as a contentious figure alleged to have posted videos of cats being tortured and killed.
There is considerable online chatter that the recent killing — along with multiple gruesome acts committed on the male victim’s body — was videotaped and posted on the Internet
Meanwhile, Sun News has posted a video interview with Magnotta from 2007, in which he contends a rumoured connection with Karla Homolka is ruining his career.
UPDATE: the suspect has gone by multiple names. As Global reports, police had initially identified him as ‘Rocco Luka’ in a press release, before correcting his name in a second press release. We have made that correction here.
