On May 25th, 2012, someone uploaded a home video to a popular gore website showing a 33-year-old male tied up and lying on an apartment bed.
In the background of the dimly lit room is a Casablanca movie poster. The hit single New Order by True Faith is also heard playing over some speakers.
The video itself is a little over ten minutes in length and is accurately titled 1 Lunatic, 1 Icepick.
Luka Magnotta grew up Eric Newman in Scarborough (East of Toronto). He was the oldest of three and lived in a dysfunctional household.
Eric was close to his grandmother Phyllis and depended on her when his father left home.
Peers degraded Eric, and his family would call him a "faggot."
He was labeled as "forgettable" by his high school peers and home-schooled after his grandmother claimed that the real world was a "dirty and dangerous place.
In 2005 Newman was convicted on fraud charges after attempting to scam a mentally disabled girl by opening up several credit cards account in her name. (Can someone find more source information on these charges?)
In 2006 Eric Newman completely transformed his image and legally changed his name to Luka Rocco Magnotta.
Luka's first porn appearance was in His First Huge Cock and has appeared in many other films Daddy Mugs and Bad Puppy.
Luka also starred in multiple modeling shows including Cover Boy and Plastic Makes Perfect.
I added all the Luka Magnotta videos to this Youtube playlist for your watching pleasures.
