It's fun watching people work so hard gathering all the evidence, then not being able to name me or catch me. You see, I always win. I always hold the trump card and I will continue to make more movies. London is wonderful because all the people are so stupid :) It's easy. So, I have to disappear for a while, until people quit bothering me. But next time you hear from me it will be in a movie I am producing that will have some humans in it, not just pussies.
~ A message Magnotta left to the cops, weeks before 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick

Luka Rocco Magnotta (July 24th, 1982 - ) is a 39-year-old ex-actor and model for the murder of Jun Lin, a Chinese International studying at Concordia University. He was born with the name Eric Clinton Kirk Newman, but had it legally changed on August 12th, 2006.

He was known as the "Canadian Psycho" because he filmed the killing of 33-year-old, Jun Lin. He decapitated, dismembered, and cannibalized the man. He was arrested and found guilty of the crime. He is currently serving a life sentence.

Before "1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick", Magnotta was accused of recording videos of himself killing kittens. One of these kitten videos were named "One Boy, Two Kittens" in which Magnotta put two kittens in a plastic bag and sucked the air out killing both of the kittens.

Magnotta receives oral sex

Starting in 2003, Magnotta occasionally worked as a stripper but mostly as a prostitute. He tried to make a career in pornographic cinema; During the first decade of the 2000s he made several appearances in low-budget homosexual pornography, but Magnotta never achieved notoriety in that domain. In 2004, Magnotta was arrested on a dozen charges, one of which was for fraud and the other for sexual assault. He was subsequently charged with six crimes of possession of stolen material, with an estimated amount of more than $ 5,000. In 2007, rumors hinted that he had a relationship with the murderer Karla Homolka, allegations that he flatly denied in an interview with the Toronto Sun, but which surfaced in 2012 when police wanted him for murder.

The Kitten Killer

After Luka posted the "One Boy, Two Kittens" video, it sparked outrage. A whole Facebook page was dedicated to catching this so called "Kitten Killer". In early 2011 another video was uploaded, this time Magnotta drowned a kitten. He taped the cat on a broomstick and drowned the cat on video. He named this video "Bath time LOL". Then in December 2011, a final video was released. This video was named "Python Christmas" in the video he feeds a cat to a Burmese python. He stopped making kitten videos after he said he'll have humans in his next movie.

1 Lunatic 1 Icepick

Lin's Head
On May 24th, 2012, a 33-year-old asian LGBT man, named Jun Lin (1978 - 2012) was seen on security footage, walking with Magnotta to his apartment room. A few hours later, Magnotta came back from the room wearing Lin's yellow shirt. Then on May 25th, 2012, a video emerged on a disabled website now called This video was named "1 Lunatic 1 Icepick". In the video is Luka Magnotta in a purple-black hoodie, and a naked male, Magnotta then gets on top of the man. He starts slitting the man's throat. A cut then happens, now the man is clearly dead. Magnotta then uses an icepick and stabs the male over 100 times. He then removes the mask on the man's head and reveals the man was Asian. Then another cut, now the man is completely beheaded. During the video, Magnotta dismembers the rest of his body, has "sex" with the limbless torso, rapes the torso with a bottle, and lets a dog eat some of the man.
Lin's Corpse

Jun Lin hasn't been seen or heard from at this point and his family gets worried. 4 days later, a tenant and a janitor finds a suitcase outside of the apartment. In the suitcase was horrifying. A limbless, headless torso was in the suitcase. After the discovery they look in various apartment rooms until they found Magnotta's room. Blood was on the mattress and bathtub. In the refrigerator was some of the body parts. Magnotta was now a wanted man after Interpol issued an international red notice for him.

On June 1st, 2012, Jun Lin was identified as the victim. Magnotta was still on the run from the police. Just three days later in a internet café in Berlin, Germany, Magnotta was found and arrested when he was spotted searching on the internet about himself.


After his arrest he was delivered to Canada. On March 11th, 2013, they showed the video in court. Magnotta and Jun Lin's father, Duran Lin, collapsed.
