Continuing to read this article if your choice and yours alone from this point. I am not responsible for anyone reading it who is not meant to be. You have been notified and warned.
Being who am I and what I do, there are many different things that I have to pay attention to in the world we live in; even when it means witnessing something I would really prefer not to. On days and occasions like these, I don't know if I would rather hang up my hat as a social commentator and focus on possibly flipping burgers in a fast food restaurant somewhere or keep pressing on and hoping tomorrow's news is brighter and won't make me want to lock myself and my children in a cave somewhere (although, I have seen many bear attack videos so even that seems sinister at times).
This all brings me to the case of Luka Magnotta. Some people may know him as the attention whore that he has become over the years, posting random provocative pictures of himself on different websites vying for the attention of men and media and some of you may know him from the infamous 2010 video when he put a pair of kittens into a bag, turned a vacuum on, and callously sucked the air out of the bag in order to suffocate the defenseless creatures.
(If the statement I just made about this person was too much for you, please refrain from continuing this article and read on of my others on a less heinous subject. It gets worse from here.)

I am not going to drag this article on like the ones I absolutely HATE that give you 10,000 lead ups before they go into the content. I like to read the facts and suspect you do too so I will get to it.
I was told about this crime and tracked down the video when I heard it was available to watch on the net. The reason because I guess I knew that if I was going to report on it, I needed to know what I was talking about. It starts out with Magnotta, hooded and dressed in black, straddling a naked male who is tied to a bed. He removes himself from the victim and soon the camera cuts back to a lifeless body. Magnotta proceeds to stab the victim about the stomach and chest area repeatedly although it is apparent the victim has already passed. He gets up, grabs the camera, uncovers the face of the victim and exposes a dead throat gash that undoubtedly was the cause of the victim's demise. He then captures himself while he is slicing the limbs and then removing the head in which he puts into a box before continuing to cut the limbs away from the torso and making random slices on the rest of the body. Then he grabs the dismembered arm and proceeds to use it as a pleasure device on his own self. He focuses on this for a bit before returning the camera's eye back to the body where the corpse is in an advanced state of dismemberment. He then rapes the corpse. It cuts back to him holding the camera as he takes a knife and fork to cut away a piece of his victim's buttocks, eats it, then puts his dog on the bed and allows his dog to eat from the area where the leg used to be. The video then breaks to the corpse in an even further state of dismemberment. Magnotta takes a wine bottle and anally penetrates the corpse. Camera cuts again to Magnotta laying on the bed and pleasuring himself with the dismembered arm. He then finishes the film with a series of photos of the body, the crime in process, and his ultimate undoing, a profile shot of his face.
The video was originally posted on BestGore.com which is a website that collects and shows the most gruesome parts of the human nature. Viewers flocked to the video and it was to some of their viewers that they were able to piece together the puzzle and identify the culprit. Canadian officials were notified but refused to take it seriously which gave Magnotta time to escape. Soon, officials also identified Magnotta in the photo but he was already gone by this time.
With all of the horrible crimes that have taken place, this is one that has truly made me sick to my stomach. What makes it worse is that this guy is still on the loose as of today (I WILL UPDATE THIS ARTICLE WHEN THEY ARE AVAILABLE). Magnotta made this video not only as a way to be able to relive his crimes, but also as a way to become famous. The victim in this video was a sacrifice to a never-was-never-will-be career of a man who wasn't even a quarter of how special he thought he was. It makes you wonder what kind of thoughts have to go through a person's mind to be capable of a crime like this. Did he truly think he was so important that the life of his victim was so insignificant next to how important his fame level should be? Did he believe he would get away with it? The only real reason I can even see him posting a picture of himself in the video was to make sure he got his notoriety but try and "beat a rap" by saying it wasn't he who committed the crime, someone else must have included his picture in the video. I will put money on that as a matter of fact.
This whole situation is a disgusting and terrifying sign of what people will do in this day and age for fame. I can handle idiots jumping off a roof into a baby pool, everyone and their mother deciding they are qualified to write film reviews, and even getting a couple of bums to fight on camera in exchange for marijuana and beer. I can not handle things of this sort. The terrifying reality is he is not the first and will not be the last. The important part now is to spread this person's picture like wild fire. Officials believe that he may be hiding out in the U.S. although it is possible he is still in Canada.
Please be on the lookout for this person and should you see him, call authorities immediately. I truly hope he is found before anyone else is subjected to the same fate as the man in the video.
My thoughts and best wishes are with the victim's family.
-Victim has been identified as 33 year old Jun Lin, a Chinese citizen who was visiting Canada before meeting and possibly dating Magnotta.

-Magnotta fled to France shortly after the murder. Officials say he may be dressed as a woman to hide out and may have possibly fled to Britain.
-Magnotta reportedly told a member of the European press that his next victim "wouldn't be a small animal" and to keep watch for his next video. Although it was reported to police, official did nothing to look for him nor press charges for the animal killings.
-Here is the audition for the Canadian gay reality show COVER GUY.
