Police in Canada have arrested a 29 year old man for killing and transporting body parts from the scene of crime to schools.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29 is said to have killed a Chinese student Jun Lin, 33, in Montreal.Police then discovered human remains sent to two Vancouver schools came from Montreal and were likely to have come from the same body.
The packages contained what appeared to be a human hand and foot, and are thought to be limbs missing from Mr Lin’s body.
“They were the same limbs we were looking for,” Police Commander Ian Lafreniere said.
The remains have been sent back to Montreal for DNA testing, police said. Mr Lin’s head is still missing.Mr Lafreniere also said the packages had been traced to Canada Post offices in Montreal.
Mr Magnotta was arrested on Monday and has appeared in a Berlin court.
The two schools have now reopened.
Magnotta allegedly filmed himself on the night of May 24-25 killing Lin with a pick axe and dismembering the body before sending a foot and a hand also to the headquarters of Canadian political parties, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives.
The hunt for Mr Lin’s killer spread out of Canada and eventually saw police pick up the trail of Mr Magnotta in Europe.Police say he flew from Montreal to Paris on 26 May, eventually traveling by coach from France to Germany.
Mr Magnotta was picked up in a cybercafe in Berlin’s Neukoelln district, where he had reportedly been reading articles about himself.
