A Canadian porn actor accused of the grisly murder of a Chinese man studying in Montreal that he once dated, was taken into custody in Berlin Monday, following an international manhunt.

Luka Rocco Magnotta

Police in Montreal revealed for the first time Tuesday that Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, is alleged to have eaten parts of his victim, Jun Lin, before sending other parts in the mail to political parties, reported the Montreal Gazette.

Lin was reported missing the day before his remains were discovered.

Lin’s torso was discovered in a suitcase outside a Snowdon apartment building last week, sparking an international manhunt for Magnotta that Montreal police Commander Ian Lafrenière called the biggest in the Montreal force’s history, involving police departments in 190 countries through Interpol and the help of 30 investigators from France’s national fugitive search unit, once it was confirmed Magnotta flew to Paris from Montreal.

An 18-hour search of the trash behind Magnotta’s apartment that turned up body parts, bloodied clothing and papers bearing Magnotta’s name helped identify the suspect, as did videos from outside apartment building and the Côte des Neiges district post office from which he is alleged to have mailed a foot to Conservative Party headquarters in Ottawa, and a foot to the Liberals.

Authorities said Magnotta filmed the murder of Lin in his Montreal studio apartment and posted it online.

The video shows a man with an ice pick stabbing another naked, bound male. He also allegedly dismembered Lin’s corpse and performed sexual acts with it in what police called a horrifying video.

In Berlin, Magnotta — a former stripper and pornographic actor — was arrested Monday in an internet cafe in Berlin where he had been looking looked at pornography and stories about himself on the web.

Magnotta refused to discuss details of his case and told a judge he would not not fight his extradition from Germany to Canada.
