As the star of several horrific viral videos and all around deplorable human being, who also happens to be the focus of episodes 33 and 34, we are very familiar with the how far a narcissist like Luka Magnotta was willing to plunge in order to achieve infamy. After watching his videos and learning all the sordid details of his story, there’s certain things we will never be able to look at the same way ever again. Here are just a few of the things Luka Magnotta has ruined for us forever.
As the choice soundtrack for the infamous “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick” video Magnotta uploaded to the website Best Gore, it’s hard to listen to the New Order tune without immediately associating it with the horrific slaughter, dismemberment, and eventual necrophilia performed on international student Lin Jun. Just hearing the opening beat to the song is enough to flood our brains with memories of things we will never be able to unsee.
Think twice before you swipe left. That “prince charming” in the photo may turn out to be a sadist whose hobbies include killing kittens and cannibalizing their dates. That’s not to say that everyone looking for love online is going to kill you, but it’s a good reminder that you never really know the person behind the overly filtered photos. The profile pictured above is from an inmate site, but it’s known that Magnotta frequented dating sites even before filming his series of disturbing videos.
After filming “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick,” Magnotta packed up Lin Jun’s body parts and mailed some of them off. Two of these packages were received by Canadian primary schools. Inside the packages Magnotta included some handwritten notes including the not-so-heartwarming poem shown above.
Lin Jun’s body parts that didn’t get mailed off to various politicians and schools around Canada were packed up into a rolling suitcase. This suitcase was left near a dumpster, but was not picked up due to the large amount of trash left out that day. It was later discovered by a janitor. If you walk into any airport across the country it’s easy to spot similar suitcases and now it’s not uncommon for us to wonder if one of those suitcases may be transporting a human torso.
As some of our fans may already know, we’re big animal lovers here at Sword and Scale, and in the past show host Mike Boudet has even ran special charity auctions to benefit no kill animal shelters. Needless to say, when we viewed Magnotta’s kitten killing videos we were beyond disgusted and just seeing a kitten’s fuzzy adorable face makes us want to hug them and keep them all safe from ever falling into the hands of a monster like Luka Magnotta.
