Luka Rocco Magnotta, the man wanted for the killing, mutilating and sexual abuse of kittens, and then posting videos online, is the subject of a manhunt in Canada, where he is thought to have murdered and dismembered a neighbour. Magnotta who is thought to be a stripper and porn star, has been identified as the suspect in a case involving the discovery of a man's torso found stuffed in a suitcase in Montreal whose hand and foot were mailed to Ottawa. The foot was received by an employee of the Conservative Party of Canada, and the hand was on its way to the Liberal Party of Canada. Police have also obtained a video of the crime, which is thought to show the man in question stabbing the victim repeatedly on a bed. Montreal Police are seeking the public's aid in locating the 29-year-old Magnotta, who may also go by the names Eric Clinton, Kirk Newman or Vladimir Romanov. Although Magnotta was not known to the police prior to the murder case, he has been the subject of an international social media campaign for the alleged torture and killing of kittens. He denies the allegations and has written about the 'hoax websites', and 'cyber stalking' which he believes he is a victim of. The campaign to find the perpetrator included The UK Sun along with PETA offering a $10,000 reward. At the time he was believed to be in the United States or Russia. Police believe that the murder took place in Magnotta's flat, close to where the torso was found. Although an autopsy is yet to be carried out, it appears that the body parts found so far belong to the same body, and that Magnotta is the main suspect.
