It sounded like something you might see on a popular crime television show like “Bones” or “CSI,” but in Canada, someone is mailing body parts one at a time to various organizations. The first was a human foot. It arrived at the Ottawa headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada. Not exactly a random location. Another package was derailed along its way to an undisclosed location. After the discovery of the foot, authorities were on the lookout and discovered a second package containing a human hand. The packages were originally mailed in Montreal, according to police.
A janitor discovered a male torso in a suitcase in Montreal. Police believe that the three items are linked and are testing to find out if they are all from the same body. Meanwhile, they have issued a nationwide arrest warrant for Rocco Luka Magnotta, a 29-year-old. They have listed him officially as a suspect in the case, but they haven’t released much information about why they feel he is a person of interest.
It seems that crimes involving the mutilation of bodies, be it cannibalism or otherwise, are constantly in the news these days.
