After hearing from more than 30 witnesses over several weeks, Judge Lori-Renee Weitzman has ruled that Luka Magnotta will stand trial for the grisly murder and dismemberment of college student Jun Lin.
A newly-released document reveals that "Canadian Psycho" Luka Magnotta was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia years before he allegedly killed, dismembered and mailed parts of Jun Lin across Canada.
The next act in the “Canadian Psycho” drama that has riveted Canada (and much of the western world) opened Tuesday as Luka Magnotta’s preliminary hearing began in a Montreal courtroom. Magnotta, a former porn actor, is accused of last year’s savage murder of Chinese foreign exchange student Jun Lin.
Acting on a tip last Sunday, police found a human head in Montreal’s Angrignon Park, just a few miles from Luka Magnotta’s apartment. Speculation ran rampant that the head was the final piece of Jun Lin, the Chinese student Magnotta viciously hacked to death in late May. On Wednesday, investigators confirmed that forensic testing proved the head was Lin’s.
Authorities always suspected that the severed foot and hand sent to two Vancouver schools belonged to Jun Lin, the Chinese student brutally murdered by “Canadian Psycho” Luka Magnotta. DNA test results released on Wednesday confirmed it.
Even as Luka Magnotta sits behind bars in Berlin, his sensational crime continues to rock Canada — on Tuesday, two Vancouver schools received packages containing a human foot and human hand in boxes similar to those that delivered victim Jun Lin’s limbs to Canadian political parties last week.
