Accused Canadian Porn Star Murderer Caught in Berlin After Watching Porn, Reading News Stories About Himself

Turns out the cross-dressing, Canadian porn star Luka Rocco Magnotta may not just be murderous, he may also be incredibly solipsistic.

Magnotta, who is accused of murdering a Chinese student in Montreal and mailing body parts to Canadian politicians, has faced a judge in Germany today after being caught in Berlin. How was he caught? The porn actor, who has been on the run, was identified in a working-class neighborhood of the German city after people in an Internet café recognized him … and witnessed him watching porn and reading articles about his manhunt.

The 29-year-old suspect has been transferred to a Berlin prison pending extradition. Hopefully there he’ll be prevented from using the Internet.
