Accused Murderer and Porn Star Luka Rocco Magnotta Arrested in Germany

| by Michael Allen

Luka Rocco Magnotta, porn star and accused murderer, was arrested in Berlin, Germany, according to Berlin police.

Magnotta, who fled Montreal, Canada, to Paris, then Berlin, was arrested in an Internet cafe, reports The Daily Mail.

Kadir Anlayisli, who works at the Internet cafe, identified the 29-year-old Magnotta at a computer and called police on Monday.

Magnotta, whose real name is Eric Clinton Newman, had been the subject of an international manhunt for the gruesome murder and dismemberment of a student, Jun Lin, in Montreal, as reported by Opposing Views.

Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase left for garbage collection outside Magnotta’s Montreal apartment last week. Other severed body parts, including a hand and a foot, were mailed to the offices of the federal Conservatives and Liberals. A 10-minute video showing the murder was then posted online. Lin and Magnotta were believed to be involved in a sexual relationship.

The porn star had first been detected in France by police using his cellphone as a beacon. French police managed to find the hotel room where he had been staying, however, Magnotta eluded law enforcement.
