Cops seek porn actor after body parts found in mail

CanadaOttawa (Canada)Montreal (Canada)

Canada has been in the news lately about packages and body parts.

Canadian Jenna Talackova is the former guy who lost his package and became the first transsexual to compete in the Miss Universe contest. No crime in that.

But Canadian cops kinda frown on sending packages of body parts through the mail. A few days ago, a janitor in Montreal was looking for the source of a nasty smell when he found a human torso stuffed in a suitcase. It apparently had been in the trash pile about a week, so it was pretty ripe.

While Montreal police were trying to figure out what was going on, cops in Ottawa had something else on their hands. Like a hand. And a foot.

Someone mailed both body parts to separate addresses. The foot went to the headquarters of the conservative party of Canada, and the hand turned up in a post office.

Police figured out pretty quickly that the body parts all fit together, they just didn't know how the parts got separated, or why.

But now they're on the lookout for a self-described model and low-budget porn actor who goes by the name of Luka Magnotta, aka Eric Clinton Newman.

"We do know that the suspect and the victim did know each other, so it's not the random of attack," said Constable Marc Soucy of the Ottawa Police. "They knew each other. The victim that we found, the identity isn't confirmed yet, but we know something for a fact -- this is a male, a white male, this is what we get. We're waiting for confirmation of his identity. As you know, part of the body was dismantled so it's hard to establish his identity."

Canadian cops aren't the only ones looking for Luka. Animal rights groups have put a bounty on Magnotta's head because he supposedly fed two live kittens to a python a few years ago, along with performing other dastardly deeds with animals.

If Canadian cops are right, he's moved up the food chain
