Severed Head In Park Belongs To Victim Of Cannibal Killer Luka Magnotta

Police in Montreal have confirmed that a severed head found in a park does indeed belong to Chinese student Jun Lin, 33, who was allegedly killed and dismembered by his lover, Luka Magnotta.

Magnotta, now awaiting trial, was the subject of a worldwide manhunt after Lin’s severed limbs were sent to the offices of various political parties and his torso was discovered stuffed in a suitcase near Magnotta’s apartment.

After receiving an anonymous tip, police found the head in Montreal’s Park Angrignon, a few miles from Magnotta’s home, on Sunday.

After being arrested at a cybercafe in Berlin in June, Magnotta returned to Canada and pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, criminal harassment of the Prime Minister, interfering with a dead body and mailing and publishing obscene materials.His trial is slated to begin in March 2013.

Magnotta’s case first drew media attention in late May, when video of him assaulting, sexually abusing and even eating Lin’s body appeared on the Internet.
