Cannibal Arrested

Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, the Montreal man who is accused of killing and eating his Chinese roommate was recently seen in Paris. But it appears to have been a stop along the way. Breaking news is that he has been captured by German police in an internet cafe in Neukoelln, a working class district in the German capital. He had been on the run for almost two weeks.

As previously mentioned, Magnotta has been obsessed with the Eiffel Tower and apparently headed to Paris from Montreal, via London. He was photographed coming through security in France. Three photos of a man standing in line at an airport security gate wearing a Mickey Mouse T-shirt appeared on Interpol's website Sunday, June 3, 2012, attached to a profile of Magnotta. But the photos appeared to have been taken down shortly after being posted, around 1 p.m. ET, according to CTV News.

French media also reported Sunday that personal belongings of Magnotta were found in a hotel in suburban Paris as well as air sickness bags and pornographic magazines.
Magnotta was a master of disguises, before his capture. In one situation, he was known to have dressed as a woman to throw off police. He also had a checkered past. Magnotta is said to have once dated Karla Homolka, a notorious Canadian sex killer who slaughtered schoolgirls. 

Meanwhile, the Toronto mall shooting suspect was also arrested on Monday. See that update here.
