SUSPECT IN BODY-PARTS CASE HAS FLED CANADA
June 01, 2012
Montreal police believe the man suspected of dismembering a human body and mailing parts of the corpse to Ottawa has fled Canada. The photo and description of Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, appeared on Interpol's most- wanted list on Thursday. Montreal police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere would not confirm or deny reports that Magnotta may have fled to Europe. "We do have some evidence that we found on the scene and also that person left a note on a website (describing) how to leave without getting caught," said Lafreniere.
An article on Digitialjournal. com explains how to leave without a trace using a six-step method. The article, titled "How to completely disappear and never be found", is written by someone using the name as Magnotta. "Cut personal ties with everyone who knows you," the article reads. "The most important thing to remember here is to accomplish this slowly: Pull out too abruptly and your friends and associates will become immediately suspicious."
Police are attempting to remove videos from the Internet, which appear to show the suspect committing the murder and performing perverse acts with the body. Police are investigating the video, but Lafreniere believes there is "no reason to doubt its authenticity." Police believe the victim is a man in his 30s reported missing several days ago, whose family lives overseas. Montreal police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere did say that police were having difficulty contacting the victim's family.
Experts in criminal behaviour say that the suspect has a clear, desperate need for attention. One retired criminal profiler suggested that Magnotta reveals that need on the Internet. Jim Van Allen, an Ontario Provincial Police criminal profiler, said that the cybertrail Magnotta left behind shows a need for notoriety and concluded, "I think you're dealing with a person who has a pathological need for attention." Montreal criminal psychiatrist Benoit Dassylva says it's possible Magnotta is somewhere monitoring all the attention thrust upon him, and soaking it up.
ANASTASIA KING: MURDERED MAIL-ORDER BRIDE
Anastasia King, a young woman from Kyrgyzstan, was found strangled and buried in a shallow grave in Washington state in December 2000. At the age of 18, Anastasia had received an email from a 38-year-old Seattle man, Indle King, from a mail order bride website. He flew to her country and they were married soon after. Two years later, after considerable strife, Indle wanted another bride. He was allegedly unwilling to pay for a divorce so he ordered a tenant in their Washington home to kill Anastasia. Weighing nearly 300 pounds, her husband pinned Anastasia down while the tenant strangled her with a necktie. Both were convicted of murder.
RUSSIAN BRIDES: MALE SHORTAGE
Most people think that Russian brides are desperate women who want nothing more than to marry a foreigner (preferably American) to get the hell out of Russia and start a new life. But in fact, this is almost always incorrect. Russia has a man shortage; there are roughly 8 men for every 10 women in a culture which is very marriage-oriented. Consequently, many Russian women are compelled to look outside of Russia for a husband. As one mail order bride company says: “[Russian Brides] feel as if you were one of the guys who would approach her at a bar: where she can say, “yes” if she likes you, and “thanks, but no, thanks” if she doesn’t.”
MARRIAGE BROKER: GUILTY OF FRAUD
There is a lot of money to be made in the mail order bride industry. In Taiwan, mail-order brides are sourced primarily from Mainland China and Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam. The common age range for Vietnam women range from 20 to 28 years of age. On average, Taiwanese men spend USD $10,000 on this type of marriage; however, only USD $500 to USD $1,000 dollars will be received by the bride’s family and the remainder taken by marriage brokers of the groom and the bride. That is a damn high profit margin.
