‘Gay’ Porn Star Sentenced to Life in Prison After Murdering, Dismembering Lover

MagnottaTORONTO — A self-professed homosexual “porn star” has been sentenced to life in prison after being declared guilty of murdering, defiling and dismembering the body of a college student who was believed to have been his lover.

As previously reported, Luka Magnotta, 32, was taken into custody in 2012 and accused of killing 33-year-old Jun Lin from China, who was attending Concordia University in Canada. According to reports, the two had been involved in a relationship four approximately four months. Lin became missing in late May 2012, but video footage of his murder soon showed up online.

The ten-minute video, which was set to the soundtrack of American Psycho, showed a naked and bound Lin being attacked with an ice pick in a bedroom, as Magnotta then sexually abused the corpse and hacked it into pieces. Magnotta is also seen cutting parts of Lin’s flesh with a knife and fork to eat and feeding some to a dog.

Days later, to much horror, Lin’s hands and feet were delivered in the mail to government officials and two area schools. His torso was also found in a suitcase in the trash near Magnotta’s apartment.

Reports state that Magnotta had been involved in homosexual pornography since at least 2001. Magnotta has appeared in several hardcore porn films and photo shoots in Canada and the United States, and has also been seen at adult establishments. The National Post reports that the pornography company Badpuppy Enterprises of Florida has admitted that Magnotta did a nude photo shoot for them in 2005.

A transsexual named Nina Arsenault also claims that while they both worked at a homosexual strip club in Toronto, the two developed a relationship.

“He was my very first lover after I started living as a transsexual,” Arsenault told reporters. “He would joke about killing animals. He would joke about killing people—that he wanted to kill his family.”

But Magnotta wasn’t joking. In 2010, Magnotta was suspected of posting numerous videos online of kittens being killed in deranged ways, such as being squeezed by a python or drowned in the bathtub.

The National Post also suggests that Magnotta was behind several blogs and online comments about himself, which became darker and more demented. The publication believes that Magnotta penned a post from earlier this year called “Necrophiliac Serial Killer Luka Magnotta,” which speaks of having sexual relations with the “mummified corpse of a young man.”

“[Magnotta] appears to be yet another early victimized, sexualized child who, surrounded by sex lust everywhere, grew into a debauched monster,” Dr. Judith Reisman, an internationally-known expert on sexuality and pornography, told Christian News Network. “Pornography, as an erototoxin, is experienced as a sexualized lust for blood. As the poison seeps into almost all homes through the mass media as well as pornography websites, and in schoolrooms disguised as graphic ‘sex education,’ we are breeding homosexual, bisexual, transgendered, heterosexual … serial rapists, murderers and finally sexual cannibals, along with other forms of toxic sexual ‘expression.’”

Magnotta fled to Europe following the murder, but was captured in Germany and transported back to Canada. He was charged with first-degree murder, committing an indignity to a human body, posting obscene material, mailing obscene material and criminal harassment. Magnotta plead not guilty by reason of insanity, and stated that he had heard voices telling him what to do.

His trial, which was held this month, lasted eight days. On Tuesday, a jury returned a guilty verdict for all five charges—charges which mandate life imprisonment.

“He wanted to be judged by a jury of his peers,” Magnotta’s lawyer Luc Leclair told the Associated Press. “He accepts the verdict. For quite some time he has been preparing for the verdict with his father, some friends and his therapist. He has been focusing on rebuilding his life.”

“Only God can judge me and I’m waiting for my judgement day,” the Vancouver Sun also reported Magnotta as writing in an undated MySpace post in 2012.

As previously reported, Lin’s mother, Du Zhigui, came to Christ after her son was murdered by Magnotta. In July 2012, she spoke at a Missionary Alliance Church in Canada to share her testimony.

“Last Sunday, I decided to get baptized,” she announced to the crowd of approximately 100 attendees.

Zhigui said that when she first arrived to Canada following the news of her son’s death, she was welcomed by Pastor Philip Cherng, and during that time, “the voice of God comforted me.”

Her message was reportedly filled with tears as she reflected on her son’s life.

“Why did the devil come toward you?” she exclaimed. “I don’t understand!”
