Monica Foster commentary: Well they got him, now what?
Fugitive porn star Luka Rocco Magnotta has been captured in Berlin following a week-long manhunt.
The 29-year-old is a prime suspect in the brutal slaying and dismemberment of 33-year-old Chinese Concordia University student Lin Jun.
The German tabloid Bild says Magnotta was apprehended by police at an Internet cafe in Berlin’s Neukölln borough. The UK’s Sunclaimed yesterday that it had reason to believe Magnotta was hiding in plain site, even going online to play “war games.”
Police said Magnotta had fled to Paris after he allegedly killed Lin, placed his torso in a suitcase, and mailed his hand and foot to the Conservative Party HQ in Ottawa and another undisclosed location. He was said to have been spotted by several eyewitnesses in the city, but managed to escape before a hotel raid was conducted over the weekend.
The Sun further reported that police suspect Magnotta could be responsible for other murders, and are investigating possible links to unexplained deaths.
