Luka Magnotta: 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick – did suspected killer video murder for death website?
WHAT news on Luka Magnotta, born Eric Clinton Newman, the alleged cat killer and former porn star wanted in connection with a hacked to pieces body doing the rounds in Canada? A torso was found in a bag in Montreal; a severed foot was sent to Canada’s Tory HQ; a severed foot to the country’s Liberals HQ; all body parts are from the same man.
Mike Nadeau found the headless body:
“Every time I passed by it smelled very bad and there were flies around it. I took a closer look and there were maggots coming out, worms coming out. We opened it up and looked inside and there was a body with no head, just a torso.”
Police have been investigating Magnotta’s appartment close to where the torso was found. Richard Payette lives across the hall. Says he:
“I never smelled dead body (before), but I’ve smelled bad meat. If I go by my sense of smell, it certainly wasn’t just hamburgers.”
Did vistors to the website bestgore.com website see the murder? The site advertises itself:

On May 25, user “Luke Magnotta” posted a video called ‘1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick’, reportedly. It shows appears to show a male being stabbed with an icepick. The alleged killer than sexually assaults the prone figure and cuts it up. All the while True Faith by New Order plays. It’s the song that features in the film American Psycho. La Presse has nicknamed the alleged killer Canadian Psycho.
Anorak readers will recall a video of what appears to be to a figure suffocating cats while John Lennon’s Merry Christmas (War Is Over) plays on. Was that Magnotta in the video? Some allege that it was.
The apparent human slaying was spotted by a Roger Renville, who is quoted:
“I was on the bestgore.com website and I saw what I was sure was a videotaped murder.”
‘Toronto police “dismissed its existence” when Renville called.’
The site is owned by Mark Marek. Says he:
“I had no proof, not even proof that it was 100 per cent real.”
He explains that his website that features human death is doing a public service:
“I can show you thousands of people who no longer speed or otherwise break the law after seeing what could happen.”
The Montreal Gazette says Magnotta has written a six-step process for vanishing and losing yourself. He’s missing. And so is the victim’s head.
