Luka Magnotta ARRESTED in Berlin - Two More Body Parts Arrive At Two Vancouver Schools

This article is in order of developments so please scroll down for the updated information.

Finally, the moment we have all been watching for, Luka Magnotta was arrested in Berlin, Germany after avoiding capture for almost two weeks.

Officials say that Magnotta fled his Paris hotel room shortly before they arrived but they were able to track him down to an internet cafe in Berlin.

More information as the story develops. Stay tuned.

-Magnotta is being held in a Berlin jail. He will see a judge on June 5th.

-A patron of the internet cafe where Magnotta was visiting recognized him from news reports and called police to have them check it out. He was apprehended without incident.

 -Magnotta was alone when arrested.

-Official mug shot.

-Possible personal video posted by Magnotta on one of his "sock puppet" accounts on the day he was arrested with the title LUKA MAGNOTTA'S OFFICIAL THEME SONG in which he shows himself off while playing the song that was playing in the 1 Lunatic 1 Icepick murder video.

-Live chat about the case:

-Video from the internet cafe in Berlin where  Magnotta was found and arrested. The video is pretty uneventful but it is a bit wild to see a bunch of German police walk in to apprehend him.

- An elementary school and private all boys school in Vancouver both received packages on 6/5/2012 whose contents were a foot and hand from an unidentified victim.
False Creek Elementary school received a package containing a human hand at around 1pm local time while St. Georges Private School for Boys received the foot shortly afterward. Officials are not saying it is confirmed to be the hand and foot of Jun Lin but they are investigating the body parts and will make an official announcement soon.
Lin's limbless torso was the only piece that was found at the scene. As I reported earlier, one hand and one foot have been officially been identified as Lin's. Should these new limbs turn out to be his, it will only be the head that will remain as missing. The head was placed into a box in the video that Magnotta posted online of the murder but no word as to it's current location.

Luka Magnotta Updates - The Case Gets Stranger Each Day

If you have not seen my original article, see for the full story.

Ever since I watched the video of Luka Magnotta's murder, the case has almost been all consuming. Watching for updates, reading article after article to learn more about the man behind the crimes, even answering the many emails from the curious to the concerned who have found their way to this blog. Honestly, I can look at this whole thing with a mixture of common sense, previous knowledge of similar cases, and a critical mind but the truth of the matter is, everyday it gets stranger and stranger.

If you have not been keeping up or are just lost amid the turmoilous sea of rumors and speculation, I will do my best to update you up to this point with what has developed so far.

Through multiple media sources it as come to light that he had fled to France shortly after the murder. He was only officially named as a suspect when a suitcase containing a human torso was found outside of his apartment building. Further examination of his flat uncovered body parts (allegedly), blood covered mattress that seemed to have been cleaned (unsuccessfully), a cryptic message written in one of the cupboards, and blood around other parts of the apartment including in the fridge.


A media site claimed that a user named BEAVIS BUTTHEAD on who uploaded a video in Magnotta's defense was actually Magnotta himself. The video trying to point out inconsistencies of the known death photo of victim Jun Li and the video of the blood pattern on the mattress in Magnotta's flat. The video proclaims that this is a set up of Magnotta and that an agent he recently fired may have been the real perpetrator of the crime. Since then, thousands of people have flocked to the video in hopes that they could talk to Magnotta through the video's comments. You can find this at In response to the allegations, the user has uploaded more videos mocking the original reporter and continues to proclaim he is not Magnotta while still defending his innocence.

Officials say they have information where Magnotta has been in France since the murder. They believe he was spotted at a Paris bar on Thursday night and had spent two nights with a man that he met at a club after leaving his hotel room in a higher end hotel in Paris.

Other media outlets are also reporting that Magnotta may have killed before the 1 Lunatic 1 Icepick video hit the web but there has been no evidence or details to further correlate this information. PETA has been searching for him for the two previous videos he had made of killing kittens (one by placing them in a bag and vacuuming out the air and one by feeding a kitten to a snake). There is no further information about any other killings at this time.

Not else has come out in the news of actual factual information. There have been interviews with past lovers, old associates, and even archived interviews with Magnotta are under every bit of scrutiny that you can expect from a information hungry media but nothing else more telling than what I have previously reported.

This is one of the stranger stories I have followed. Drugs, sex, porn, desperate bids to become famous, transsexual disguises, possible self-made YouTube accounts to ensure the furthering of fame while on the run, self uploaded videos of the crime, etc. It is mind blowing to think that this isn't some outrageous bad movie on the LIFETIME channel.

I will continue to update this story as details become available.
