The stills were taken by a CCTV camera in a Berlin internet café, and capture the moment an international manhunt for 29-year-old Luka Magnotta came to an end.

Magnotta today told a German court that he would not fight extradition to Canada, where authorities are currently preparing papers to request his extradition.

Magnotta allegedly murdered his 33-year-old Chinese lover Jun Lin in a Montreal flat on the evening of May 24. Parts of the university student’s body were then posted to political offices in the city of Ottawa, including the Canadian Prime Minister’s party HQ.

A ten-minute video entitled ‘One Lunatic, One Ice Pick’ was posted online after the killing. The footage shows a man thought to be Magnotta attacking his naked, tied-up victim with an ice pick, before hacking him to pieces, eating parts of his flesh, and performing sexual acts on his corpse.

Magnotta is thought to have fled Montreal for Paris two days after the murder, passing through customs unchallenged despite the international search for him.

Police say he spent at least two days in the French capital, before travelling to Berlin on a coach.

The bisexual porn star, who also worked as a gay prostitute under the name ‘Angel’ and has had plastic surgery to look like James Dean, was captured after an employee of an internet café in Berlin’s Neukoelln district recognised him.

To double check he had the right man, Kadir Anlayisl, began searching the internet for articles on Magnotta, and noticed the man in the café was looking at exactly the same articles on his computer.

Anlayisl then ran outside and flagged down a passing police van saying “I have someone here you might be looking for."

Police said there was no struggle in arresting Magnotta, who "tried at first giving fake names…but in the end he just said ‘you got me'."

Martin Steltner, a spokesman for the Berlin public prosecutor's office, told the AFP news agency that Magnotta’s extradition process could take months to go through, but added that it "will be easier and will be faster" now that Mr Magnotta has said he will not oppose it.
