Porn actor suspected of dismembering, mailing body parts still on the loose

The search continued Thursday for a porn actor suspected of dismembering his acquaintance, posting the video of the incident online and mailing the severed limbs to different locations in Ottawa, including to a political party's headquarters, according to a source with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Authorities are searching for Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, who they say is allegedly responsible for a human torso discovered in Montreal, thought to be linked to a human hand and foot that were separately mailed from Montreal to Ottawa.

Magnotta, also known as Eric Clinton Newman, is a Montreal resident who allegedly knew the victim, identified only as a white male, Montreal police spokesman Ian Lafreniere told reporters on Wednesday.

The suspect has no criminal background, and his image and information related to him were later recovered from a "very graphic" website, Lafreniere said.

    So...the Canadian authorities never once thought that maybe they should stop him when he was posting videos of himself killing kittens online?!

    Guess they never read "Serial Killering for Dummies" which discusses animal killings in the first chapter.

      Well I'm in Canada and I wasn't shocked. He's from S********** and there are only two routes out. One is comedian, like Mike Myers, and one is serial killer and that list is endless.

    You have a point there@ Pedo Bear.
    What a sickening narrative, not content with committing the heinous crime this monster mails body parts. Hope the Canadians dispatch him to his fate quickly.

    At last, a reaction from someone who knew him that fits. Creepy. Hate when a sicko gets caught and the neighbors say, "he seemed normal."
