With accused murderer-necrophiliac-cannibal Luka Magnotta now in custody in Berlin, police in Canada are investigating his possible connection to a gruesome death and dismemberment in Los Angeles, reports MSNBC.
A former gay-porn actor, Magnotta is believed to have lived in L.A. at one point, making him a suspect in the death of gay airline worker Hervey Medellin, 66, whose body was found near the Hollywood sign in January. (Medellin’s hands and feet were cut off and his severed head was discovered in a nearby plastic bag.)
“The body parts are the common denominator here,” Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Lyle Knight said, according to the Toronto Star. “That’s why our investigators want to talk to the Canadians. We want to know if his whereabouts included Hollywood because we understand he was in the acting field and Hollywood being the acting and movie mecca, we want to know.”
Well, we wouldn’t exactly call mutilating a corpse and then defiling it “acting.”
