Luka Rocco Magnotta, the Canadian porn actor wanted for the murder and dismemberment of his lover, has been arrested Berlin, Germany.
Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, was reportedly picked up in a cybercafe in Berlin’s Neukoelln district.
An Interpol notice says Luka Rocco Magnotta is suspected of killing Jun Lin, a 33-year-old Chinese student, in Montreal. Body parts were posted to political parties in Canada.
Earlier, French police said Luka Rocco Magnotta had flown to Paris from Montreal.
A video posted online, in which a man apparently uses an ice pick to kill another man, is believed to show Jun Lin’s murder, investigators say.
The suspect had reportedly worked as a bisexual porn actor and model.
Luka Rocco Magnotta was spotted by someone travelling on a bus from France to Berlin, the German news website Spiegel reports.
According to Germany’s BZ website, the internet cafe owner in Berlin recognized Luka Rocco Magnotta and alerted police.
Earlier, police in Paris found items of his in a hotel room – pornographic magazines and airline sick bags, French media say.
The hotel is in Bagnolet, an eastern suburb of Paris near the peripherique ring road.
