Cannibal suspect caught while googling himself
The 29-year-old Canadian suspected of a gruesome murder act, which involved dismembering body parts and eating the flesh of his ex-gay lover , has been arrested.
The Sun reported that he was nabbled in Berlin while googling news reports about himself, following a tip-off by an cafe employee.
Witnesses said Luke Magnotta, wanted by Interpol, was wearing sunglasses and a black hooded jacket, was surfing the internet, checking email messages and on an online war- gaming site.
Police said he did not resist arrest.
When an officer asked, “Are you the wanted man?”
Magnotta allegedly replied: “Yes, that’s me.”
The arrest brought to an end an international trawl spanning thousands of miles involving hundreds of police officers across two continents.
Magnotta, a gay-porn actor, is also suspected to be behind a cruel series of kitten-killing videos posted online.
