Police in Montreal have found what is believed to be the head of a Chinese university student who was allegedly murdered and dismembered by his boyfriend.
Canadian sometime porn actor Luka Magnotta allegedly murdered, dismembered and ate the victim, Jun Lin, in May. On Sunday, investigators searched Parc Angrignon, a few miles from Magnotta's apartment, after being tipped off, reported ABC News. It was there that they found what appeared to be a human head.
At this moment, we have not confirmed that it is human, police spokesman Ian Lafreniere said to ABC. Now, we are waiting for analysis that it is human and it belongs to Jun Lin.
Magnotta, 29, was arrested last month in Germany after allegedly videotaping himself murdering the 33-year-old Lin by dismembering his body and eating his flesh. Footage of the horrific attack was posted in a video.
Police have also accused Magnotta of mailing Lin's extremities to schools and government offices before fleeing to Berlin. There, he was caught reading articles about himself in an Internet café, ABC News reports. Lin's torso was found in a suitcase near a dumpster outside of Magnotta's house.
In early June, authorities began to investigate previous dismemberment cases that are similar to Lin's death. Veteran Miami homicide detective Sgt. Confessor Gonzalez said that he planned on reaching out to Montreal police to see if Magnotta is connected to the death of Guatemalan national Omar Laparra, according to the Daily Mail.
Laparra was killed in 2009, and Gonzalez hopes to track the movements of Magnotta across the U.S. and Canadian border.
Earlier this week a blog that is believed to be written by the ex-porn star has surfaced online, indicating that Magnotta has an obsession with Scientology and Tom Cruise. According to The Mirror, in July 2009 he authored a lengthy blog post about the religion in an entry titled Scientology Saved My Life on estrip.org.
Magnotta described Tom Cruise as his idol and described his infatuation with the actor, who recently separated from wife Katie Holmes.
I have always admired him for his charity work and personal lifestyle, the entry read. He helps anyone and everyone whenever he is able to.
Magnotta was extradited from Germany and returned to Canada on June 18 under tight security. He pleaded not guilty when arraigned, ABC reports.
