OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — A Canadian porn actor suspected of mailing body parts to the headquarters of two major political parties after making a video of the killing might have fled to France, police said Thursday.
A Montreal police official said they have information that Luka Rocco Magnotta might have left Canada for France but said his current whereabouts are not known. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to talk about the case publicly, gave no other details.
Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere earlier said authorities believe Magnotta fled North America based on evidence they found at his apartment, and based on a blog Magnotta once wrote about how to disappear.
Magnotta, 29, has been added to Interpol’s “wanted persons” list.
“We believe he may be in a foreign country,” Lafreniere told The Associated Press. “He left a letter on a website mentioning how to disappear for good, and secondly, our investigation brought us some details that might let us think that he could be away from the country.”
Lafreniere also said police have been trying to take down an online video that they believe shows Magnotta murdering a man he dated.
