Body parts suspect Luka Magnotta arrested in Germany12:34 pm - 06/04/2012
Canadian murder suspect Luka Rocco Magnotta has been arrested in Berlin.
Magnotta is wanted by Montreal authorities on first-degree murder and other charges, including threatening Canadian politicians.
He is suspected of killing Jun Lin – a 33-year-old Chinese university student with whom he had a relationship – filming the attack and mailing the victim's dismembered body parts to Canadian political parties.
German police Chief-Supt. Stefan Riedlich told CBC News that Berlin authorities arrested Magnotta in an internet café Monday at 2 p.m. local time.
"As far as I know he was arrested alone, and there was no struggle," Riedlich said.
Magnotta is being held at the Berlin prison and is expected to be brought in front of a judge on Tuesday.
Magnotta, dubbed the "Butcher of Montreal" by European media, was spotted in Paris on the weekend, at a local café and in a hotel.
Victim went missing May 24
Parts of Lin's remains were discovered last week after they were sent to the federal Liberal and Conservative parties in Ottawa.
His torso was also found stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in a trash pile behind the suspect's apartment. Montreal police believe Lin was killed sometime in the evening of May 24 or early May 25. A video that apparently captured some of the act was posted to an online gore site on May 25.
Montreal police said Magnotta left the city on an international flight on May 26. According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, Magnotta arrived in France at Paris's Roissy airport the same day.
Interpol issued a notice about Magnotta to 190 countries on Thursday.
Montreal police are calling it one of the largest manhunts in their history.
