'Killer cannibal' Luka Magnotta flown back to Canada
Wednesday 20 June 2012
A Canadian porn actor suspected of dismembering a Chinese student faced his first court hearing yesterday after returning to Canada on a military transport plane from Germany, where he was arrested.
Luka Magnotta did not fight his extradition. He is suspected of killing Jun Lin and sending body parts to Canadian political parties and schools. The head is still missing. Police said they will ask Magnotta where it is. Investigators say that the 29-year-old also posted a video online showing him having sex with the dismembered corpse.
Magnotta was due to appear before a judge via video conference from a detention centre yesterday afternoon. René Verret of Quebec's prosecutors' office said Magnotta's lawyer is still not known.
A convoy of police vehicles with flashing lights rolled out to meet Magnotta at Mirabel airport just outside Montreal on Monday evening. Half a dozen men escorted him down the stairs of the plane and into a van while armed guards stood by.
The Montreal Police Commander Ian Lafrenière called the Canadian military flight an extraordinary measure but said there was no way they were going to bring him back on a commercial flight.
"We're extremely happy with the result today," Mr Lafrenière said. "This is not the end of the investigation. We're missing an important part of the investigation, which is the head." He said they hope to help the family mourn by telling them where the head is.
