Human Head Found In Park Could Be Magnotta’s Victim
Police may have finally found Luka Rocco Magnotta’s former lover’s head. According to reports, police say to have found a human head in a park in Montreal and are investigating whether it is the missing head of a Chinese student who they say was dismembered by the Canadian porn actor.
Luka Magnotta is accused of dismembering his lover Jun Lin and mailing the body parts to political parties and schools. He pleaded not guilty last month. Lin’s head is the only remaining body part unaccounted for.
Montreal police spokesperson Anie Lemieux said investigators made their way to Park Angrignon on Sunday afternoon after the major crimes unit received a tip. The park is located a few miles (kilometers) south of Magnotta’s apartment.
Lemieux said they must wait for tests results over the next few days to confirm if there is any link and whether it is in fact a body part.
Police have been questioning Magnotta with the hope that they would find out the location of the head. The family of Lin has been seeking closure.
Investigators say Magnotta, 29, posted a video online showing him having sex with the dismembered corpse. A second, unedited version of the video seen by police shows him eating parts of the body. Police say Magnotta and Lin were in a relationship.
Lin’s family arrived in Montreal last month and attended a memorial service last week. Lin, 33, studied computer science student at Montreal’s Concordia University.
