Although accused murderer Luka Rocco Magnotta has already been extradited back to Canada, Montreal police are still looking for some of the remains of his alleged victim, 33-year-old Jun Lin.
That search may be coming to an end, though, as police have found what appears to be a human head in Angrignon Park — only a few miles south of Magnotta’s apartment. The body part was discovered on Sunday after police received a tip in the afternoon. A police spokesperson confirmed on Monday, July 2, that the department was conducting forensic analysis to determine if it is Lin’s.
“We are trying to positively identify whose remains they are,” police spokesperson Const. Raphael Bergeron told the Toronto Star.
The Star reports that the DNA tests could take up to a week to finalize.
After a lengthy international manhunt following the discovery of several body parts and an Internet video that purported to show Magnotta carrying out the murder, the bisexual porn star — whom media dubbed the “Canadian Psycho” — was arrested in Germany and brought back to Montreal to stand trial. On June 19 he pleaded not guilty to Lin’s murder.
