Canadian Killer Luka Magnotta's Life Behind Bars Is Absolutely Surreal
Magnotta married another inmate in 2017.
It's been years since the tragic and untimely murder of Jun Lin, but the story of his brutal death has risen in popularity again since the release of Netflix's Don't F*** With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer in 2019.
After watching the documentary, a lot of people have been wondering, where is Luka Magnotta now?
This article contains graphic content that might not be suitable for some readers.
If you haven't had a chance to watch, what you need to know is that in May of 2012, Magnotta recorded a disturbing video of him brutally killing and dismembering Chinese International student, Jun Lin.
After mailing parts of the body to different political parties and schools, Magnotta fled the country.
A crime scene was found but no suspect. However, police had extensive information about Magnotta's motives.
Because of his, volunteers from the internet had been scrutinizing and trying to catch him for years.
They'd made a group to examine the videos for the slightest clues, all to try and catch the source of this remorseless, disturbing violence.
As you may have expected, the 38-year-old has been behind bars since 2014 and is currently serving a life sentence.
Although nobody has been able to talk to him in years, the Toronto Sun was able to gain access to some letters that he's written, as well as some photos of him.
From the sound of things, his time behind bars hasn't been all bad — in 2015 he signed up for an inmate dating website called Canadian Inmates Connect.
In 2017, the Montreal Gazette reported that Magnotta would be getting married to a fellow inmate, Anthony Jolin.
The pair tied the knot on June 26, with Magnotta's mom, Anna Yourkin as his witness.
According to iHeart Radio, the Scarborough native and Jolin were not granted permission to use the private family visitation centre or have any type of cohabitation by the Correctional Service of Canada.
In the letters shared by the Toronto Sun, it appears that he has remained pretty familiar with current celebrity gossip and pop culture, which is good evidence that he's got access to the outside world from his prison cell.
In 2018, Magnotta's mother teamed up with Brian Whitney to write a book about her son titled, My Son, The Killer: The Untold Story of Luka Magnotta and "1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick".
"We have movie nights. We all have our own TVs. I have painting class and I exercise a lot. I practice language studies," he explained to Whitney.
The Toronto Sun reported that Whitney says the convict "doesn’t like talking about the actual crime itself."
