Timeline

Below is a Timeline of events, articles and webpages that I feel may be of relevance to gaining an insight into Luka Magnotta leading up to the murder of Jun Lin. The files are listed in chronological order detailing the originating website, author and synopsis of the contents. I decided to archive copies of these webpages on my Hotmail SkyDrive in PDF and/or JPEG formats.  The direct download link to the individual files is included after the synopsis.  

I have written separate pages with biographical details about Luka Magnotta's life and career and a more comprehensive list of Luka's Web activities.  I also decided not to go into great detail about the kitten killing saga and ensuing hate campaign against Luka Magnotta, save for a couple of recent revelations. Instead I wrote a blog about it here.

NB: The websites listed here are not necessarily direct links to the documented webpages I mention, which may have been removed by the websites hosting the content. I have highlighted in pink type suspected aliases and sockpuppets allegedly used by Luka Magnotta to create articles and postings about himself.

Some of the webpages featured may contain explicit content, so be advised to view with caution although I have not including links to sites containing gore imagery. The 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick video is NOT linked anywhere on this site, you will have to find 'a dramatic encyclopedia' (yes I know it is not spelt that way) to view it, if you must!

June 2005 - LM was convicted on three counts of fraud (against Sears Canada, The Brick, and 2001 Audio Video) after coercing a vulnerable 21-year-old woman to purchase $16,900 of goods for him and fraudulently obtaining a credit card in her name.   During the Trial proceedings LM's lawyer Peter B. Scully wrote to Toronto Police expressing his concerns that his client might be in danger of violent reprisals from the victim's irate father who was a powerful man in the Greek community.  I have written a recent blog about the Fraud trial or you can read the full story in The Globe and Mail

In preliminary hearings in 2013 it was revealed that during the 2005 Trial it was disclosed that LM had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

17th July 2006 - Eric Clinton Kirk Newman legally changes his name to become known as Luka Rocco Magnotta...and thus beginneth his life's work as he sets about creating a legend for himself as an iconic "Internet sensation"! Official notification of LM's name change was published in The Ontario Gazette on 12th August 2006.

March 2007 - 24-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta files for bankruptcy in Mississauga, Ontario, with a list of debts at around $17,000.   He cites "illness, lack of employment and insufficient income to pay off debts" as reasons for his bankruptcy, with $200 monthly expenditure on medication for an unspecified medical condition.  Read the story here on Ottawa Citizen.
 
Luka Magnotta at the Toronto Sun
September 2007 - Toronto Sun - After appearing on a radio phone-in show on Toronto's AM640, LM gives an interview to Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun to deny "rumours" he was dating serial-killer Karla Homolka. It has now been confirmed during the Trial that LM himself was the source of these internet rumours.

27th January 2008Wikipedia – A Wikipedia page created in 2007 by Luka Magnotta about himself is deleted after lengthy discussion by Wiki contributors and Admins concluded that LM was a non-notable model/porn actor. During the discussion thread it is pointed out that numerous contributions by sock-puppet identities supportive of LM's Wiki entry flooded the discussion in an attempt to retain the page.
[PDF of Wiki deletion thread]

I personally believe that LM's desperation to receive recognition and notability, particularly on Wikipedia, is a highly significant factor in this case. Somewhat ironic that he ultimately got what he wanted after the murder of Jun Lin, but then LM undoubtedly realised that such a crime would give him notoriety and notability.

1st March 2008 - YouTube - megaman999megaman - Throughout 2008 LM decides to wage war against the satirical cartoon series Family Guy on YouTube - for reasons I suspect known only to himself - in an attempt to get the series banned by posting several video broadcasts airing his grievances.  He follows a familiar pattern of setting up accounts then multiple sockpuppet accounts to post supportive comments, ending up with his own accounts being banned in the process.  The YouTube link is to a video uploaded on 1st March 2008 by LtGradient parodying Luka's YouTube activities.

Having never seen the series myself I have no idea what all the fuss was about, but it certainly gained LM an army of detractors it would appear.

22nd July 2008Wikipedia – An attempt by Luka Magnotta to resurrect his Wikipedia entry is also deleted after discussion, again because he failed to meet notability criteria. [PDF of Wiki deletion thread]

16th May 2009 - Luka Magnotta Facebook page is created. The first of 70 Facebook accounts it is claimed that he created. There is a good article on Luka Magnotta's Facebook activities on Macleans.ca.  It would appear that the bulk of these Facebook pages were created from 2011 onwards.

1st June 2009 - Digital Journal - Rocco Magnotta - LM posts an article entitled "How to Completely Disappear and Never Be Found". This article is widely acknowledged to be have been largely plagiarised by LM.[PDF 651Kb]
 
30th November 2010SMplacedragonslayer4 – Claiming to live in Russia but returning to North America 'dragonslayer4' is seeking to meet "very very dominant, aggressive and sadistic men" or a strong-minded women to tie him up and abuse him. With a picture of LM tied up.

4th January 2011-25th January 2011businessinsider.comLuka Magnotta - Whilst living in New York during January 2011, LM contacts lawyer Romeo Salta to seek legal advice about groups of animal rights activists he claims are persecuting him and seeking to bring him to justice in connection with alleged animal rights abuse claims. 

LM also details in his emails to Mr. Salta 42 incidents of serious abuse against him (see pic right) by someone he referred to as 'Manny', alleging that he was kidnapped by 'Manny' and taken to Miami where he was abused and repeatedly raped. NYC and Miami Police Departments were purportedly informed by LM but failed to act and LM says he was briefly admitted to the psyche ward of Mount Sinai Hospital, Miami, as a result of his injuries.   It emerged during the Trial that LM was in and out of Mount Sinai Hospital, Miami, in a 48 hour period with a diagnosis of substance abuse.

The story was covered with a PDF of Magnotta's emails to Romeo Salta on businessinsider.com, 13th June 2012. [PDF 1.18Mb] Screen Capture [JPEG 2.9Mb]   Rome Salta emails [PDF 234Kb]

N.B. It is worth noting that LM's allegations of rape and abuse by 'Manny' comes less than a month after a LM sockpuppet 'dragonslayer4' posted a thread on SMplace looking to meet "dominant sadistic thinking men" into BDSM.   However LM subsequently makes reference to the rape allegations in a post he made on PsycheCentral on 1st September 2011. See Luka's Web
'Rocco' by Paul Mason

1st May 2011 -  Montreal Photographer Paul Mason meets LM at his apartment after he responded to an advertisement on Craiglist in April 2011.  LM calls himself 'Rocco' and throughout the photoshoot speaks with an Eastern European accent citing his Russian and Italian heritage. Very insightful interview with Paul Mason on Macleans.ca, 7th June 2012, about his encounter with Luka 'Rocco' Magnotta during this unpaid photoshoot.
[PDF 714Kb]  

21st July 2011 - http://www.luka-magnotta.com - LM sets up a personal website and registers the domain name luka-magnotta.com, posting articles on Cyber Stalking, the Judicial System and Media Propaganda. Just in case these pages are ever deleted I have screen captured them in their entirety.

8th December 2011 - LM is in London, England, where he visits the London offices of the Sun newspaper, who had previously published an article linking Magnotta to the notorious You Tube kitten-killing videos. Luka Magnotta denies involvement in animal cruelty and requests that the Sun stops "harassing" him.

Sun journalist, Alex West, is dispatched later that day to confront Luka Magnotta at the Fusilier Pub, Wembley, London, following several email tip-off's to the Sun about LM's whereabouts.  The Sun believes Luka Magnotta himself was the source of these emails about where he was staying. 
 
During the face-to-face interview with Sun reporter Alex West, LM protests his innocence of any involvement in the kitten killing videos and also denies having had a relationship with Karla Homolka, saying he has nothing to do with her.

Shortly after the interview with Alex West plain-clothed officers from the Metropolitan Police arrive and escort LM off of the premises for not paying his £40 per night room rental. 
   
10th December 2011 - The Sun Newsdesk receives a disturbing email from a UK Yahoo account in the name of 'John Kilbride' (a twisted reference to a victim of the Moors Murderers) intimating at the meeting with Alex West on 8th December and glibly admitting involvement in the kitten killing videos.  There is also a chilling reference to making future videos involving humans.

12th December 2011 - Sun reporter Alex West contacts the Metropolitan Police and is referred to the Malicious Communications Unit at Islington Police Station, where he hands over the evidence of the email from 'John Kilbride' plus copies of the intelligence he has gathered on Luka Magnotta and his alleged animal cruelty.  

The Met's MCU team investigate and ascertain the email was sent from a server in The Netherlands, which is outside the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police so no further action is taken.  Likewise the kitten killing video 'Python Christmas' which was listed on You Tube as being filmed in Islington, London, in December 2011, was uploaded from a server in North America, so again no further action taken.

During the Trial it has emerged that the Crown's case for premeditated 1st degree murder centres almost entirely on the 'John Kilbride' email sent to Sun Newsdesk on 10th December 2011.

11th November 2014 - It was confirmed by the Defence that Luka Magnotta admits to sending the 'John Kilbride' email to Alex West.

LM sockpuppet posts about BPD in July 2011
17th April 2012 - Luka Magnotta attends Jewish General Hospital, Montreal following a referral from a general practitioner which mentions possible bi-polar affective disorder.  He is assessed by psychiatrist, Dr. Joel Paris, who diagnoses Luka Magnotta with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) after an hour-long assessment.  

He tells Dr. Paris about chronic feelings of emptiness as well as fears of being cheated on and of abandonment. Impulsive behaviours. He said he had tried to kill himself twice and describes incidents of childhood physical and sexual abuse. Dr. Paris records that LM does not appear to be suffering from bipolar or psychosis and does not prescribe LM with any medication.  However, Dr. Paris recommended that LM is followed by the doctor at the CLSC.

Luka Magnotta presented at Jewish General Hospital with at least 5 'textbook' symptoms remarkably consistent with the DSM criteria to reach a diagnosis of BPD. Professor Paris is a world renown expert in Personality Disorders, particularly Borderline Personality Disorder, with some 40-years experience in psychiatric medicine. He testified during the Trial that even he did not know what Magnotta hoped to gain from the consultation.

22nd April 2012 - YouTube - Rita VanVolkenberg -  A video is uploaded entitled 'Cannibal Serial Killer - Luka Magnotta' featuring a slideshow of LM pics (many fake and photoshopped) with the track "True Faith" by New Order accompanying, which is the same track featured in 1 Luatic1 Ice Pick.

Unidentified male (left) & LM on 19th May 2012
18th May 2012 - LM has a liaison with an unidentified Colombian male at his apartment, during which he takes several, presumably self-timer, photos with the male apparently sleeping on the bed.

The unidentified male is also filmed gagged, tied-up and snoring on a bed with Luka straddling him asking: "Are you OK? Are you OK?"  Disturbingly, at one point Magnotta has an electric saw in his hand whilst the young male was semi-conscious on the bed - this footage was edited into the 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick murder video of Jun Lin that Magnotta uploaded on 25th May 2012.

19th May 2012, 11.30am - LM and the unidentified male are shown on CCTV leaving LM's apartment block at Decarie Blvd,  LM is holding the young male's arm as if to steady him.

The photographs and video footage were recovered from Luka Magnotta's Sony DSC-W5 digital camera and memory card on 1st June 2012, by computer forensics and data retrieval specialist, Det Sgt. Panagiotis Sarganis, from Montreal Police, Tech Unit.  

I have written more about this in a blog

One of Magnotta's Craigslist Ads, 24th May 2012
24th May 2012 9.39am - During May 2012 Luka Magnotta starts posting 'men4men' adverts on Craigslist, seeking sexy males aged 18-35 for a home movie he's making.  His aggressive behaviour causes so much concern that webmasters advise people not to reply to the 'men4men' adverts.

24th May 2012 RipOffReportFt. Lauderdale, Florida – A lengthy complaint report is filed on RipOff Report in the modelling, talent agencies thread describing LM as a “dangerous sick psychopath...who is incapable of feeling remorse” and citing a long list of webpages about Magnotta's alleged activities. A subsequent comment left on 25th May 2012 by Tony Luciforia - who is an alleged LM sockpuppet - continues the prose of the report, writing in detail about the definition of psychopathy and sociopathy. 

24th May 2012RipOffReportMario Fucatti – Almost identical complaint report about LM posted to RipOffReport under the bars, lounges and clubs thread at some point on the 24th May 2012. There are four comments associated with this report, two of which were posted on 24th May 2012 including a large section of quotes copied from LM's website and two by Tony Luciforia that were posted on 25th May 2012. It is highly probable that the author of all four comments is one and the same as the author of the report. 

24th May 2012Scam Informerrobertta9892 – Another 'known' LM sockpuppet reporting LM's alleged kitten killing activities and listing links to news websites reports. However, Robertta9892 leaves a detailed comment with an in-depth psychoanalysis of the features of psychopathy, which appears to me to have been almost entirely plagiarised from a professional source. 7/11/2014 - This webpage has been removed.

24th May 2012RipOffReport Chris Toronto – This is possibly the most curious complaint report that is assumed to have been made by LM on RipOff Report, about a Toronto fitness instructor called Nader Eid.  For those not familiar with the name, Nader Eid was a good? friend of LM back in 2006 and according to LM's transsexual ex-girlfriend, Barbie Swallows, Nader and LM were flatmates and Nader Eid had an emotional attachment to LM which was not reciprocated. Again in this report there is a follow up comment from Tony Luciforia posted on 25th May 2012, however it would appear on this occasion that Tony Luciforia is claiming to be Barbie Swallows!  Pics of LM and Nader Eid below. 
[PDF 1.05Mb]   ScreenCapture [JPEG 2.18Mb]





N.B. It should be noted that the three RipOff Reports and the Scam Informer Report were filed at some point on the day Jun Lin was murdered and the follow up comments were posted sometime on 25th May 2012 after the murder and dismemberment of Jun Lin's body had taken place! 

You would think that the perpetrator of Jun Lin's murder would be somewhat preoccupied with editing and disseminating his 'masterpiece' - the 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick video - and disposing of the body parts before making good his escape plan! And, that is not taking into account the psychological dynamics of a person having planned and just committed such a heinous crime.

It should be noted that the RipOff Report website does not remove reports once they are filed.

24th May 2012 – Last confirmed sighting of 33-year-old Chinese student Jun Lin alive. His mobile phone becomes unobtainable after 9pm.  It was revealed during the Trial that Jun Lin got to know Luka Magnotta after he replied to an advert on Craigslist posted by Luka Magnotta.

30th May 2012http://chanarchive.org/4chan/b/47050b1UNJBxK – A lengthy discussion thread on 4Chan is started on the Magnotta case. In a blog entry by Kitty LeClaw on Mascara&Murder dated 18th June 2012 it is alleged that LM himself participated in the discussions on this thread whilst on the run, admitting to the killing of Jun Lin and details about the murder etc.. Snippets of the alleged comments by LM are on the Mascara&Murder blog entry for 18th June 2012. As far as I am aware there is no credible independent verification that LM posted these comments on 4chan, but the prose is remarkably similar to LM's style.

Fax to SPVM from Raphael Feldstein, 1st July 2012
A clue might be that this was presented into evidence by Luka Magnotta's Defence attorney, Luc Leclair.

I suspect that in presenting this information into evidence, Luc Leclair will mitigate that this demonstrates how his client co-operated with the Police after his arrest; which I imagine the Crown acquiesced with in order to recover Jun Lin's head.

The ploy was the mastermind of New York based animal rights activists Rescue Ink, whose membership comprises police officers and military personnel, to bring LM to “justice” for animal rights abuses allegedly depicting LM killing kittens in several videos uploaded to the internet during 2010-2011. Jeremy got cold feet and the sting operation was shelved.

  1. It's sick and it's prevalent among our young kids that are being desensitized everyday by hiding behind a screen to show who they really are, and not caring about ANYTHING! Wake up people! Teach your children well, but more importantly, love them!!
