Another murder in LA by Canada’s alleged cannibal killer?
Canada’s alleged cannibal killer Luke Rocco Magnotta, 29, may be responsible for another torso murder in LA in late January.
Magnotta was caught at an Internet cafe in Berlin on June 4, but he now may be charged for the LA murder.
In the late January, the remains of a retired airline worker were found in LA. The body of Hervey Medellin, 66, was found by dog walkers near the Hollywood sign after one of the dogs found a plastic bag containing his severed head.
LA police told ABC News that Medellin was openly gay, and noted that Medellin’s hands and feet had also been cut off.
These similarities suggest that Magnotta may have murdered Medellin, thus police are investigating the case.
Magnotta is expected to be extradited to Canada this weekend.
Magnotta was caught at an Internet cafe in Berlin on June 4 for killing his lover Jun Lin, 33, a Chinese student who was studying at Concordia University in Montreal, in late May at his apartment. He also videotaped and posted the video of him killing Lin online and sent Lin’s hands and feet in the mail to schools in Vancouver and political offices in Ottawa.
