“Canadian psycho” arrested
The Canadian gay porn star and escort accused of killing, dismembering and eating his boyfriend has been arrested in Berlin.
German police say alleged killer Luka Rocca Magnotta said “you got me” when he was arrested in an internet café overnight.
Police confirmed they had been tracking Magnotta’s mobile phone movements after he fled to Europe from Canada on May 26 and was later spotted in several high end hotels and night clubs in Paris.
Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper congratulated the work during the international manhunt from London where he is attending the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Magnotta is due to appear before a Berlin court tomorrow under charges of killing his boyfriend, 33-year-old Jin Lin, dismembering his body, which was filmed and posted online, and mailing body parts to members of the Canadian Conservative Party, including to the Prime Minister.
