Canadian police have launched a manhunt for a man suspected in a grisly murder case where several dismembered body parts were mailed out and a torso was found in a garbage pile in Montreal. Montreal police released a photo of Luka Rocco Magnotta, who is reportedly a male model and bisexual actor in porn films, in connection to the case. The case first made headlines when a severed foot was delivered via Canada Post to the headquarters of the ruling Conservative Party in Ottawa. A hand was also intercepted in the mail, and police said later they believed the limbs were connected to a torso found in a garbage pile in Montreal.

The police had finished their work inside and Apartment 208 was pretty much stripped bare, but the stomach-turning stench and darkened red stain on the mattress left little doubt that something terrible had happened here.

“The smell of death is not funny,” Eric Schorer, the building’s superintendent, said as he opened the door Wednesday afternoon. “If you look at the bed, that’s where it happened.”

Within hours, Montreal police would issue a wanted bulletin for the tenant of the one-room apartment, 29-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta, sought for one of the most gruesome killings in Montreal in recent memory.

Not only was the unidentified victim dismembered, not only were two body parts apparently mailed to political parties in Ottawa, but it has emerged that the killer filmed his crime and posted it on the Internet. The snuff film titled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick, depicting the dismemberment of an Asian male body and various indignities to the remains, has provoked online debate about its veracity since it was posted last week. Police have confirmed the video depicts the actual crime.
