Luka Rocco Magnotta, the gay porn star who Canadian officials believe filmed himself murdering a former lover, dismembering him, partially eating the corpse, and mailing body parts, was arrested Monday in Berlin.

Magnotta allegedly mailed parts of his former lover's body to Canadian politicians and dumped over body parts in suitcases. Police say there is an 11-minute video of the gruesome crime. The murder victim is 33-year-old Jun Lin, a computer and engineering college student who was Magnotta's onetime lover.

While Lin's murder likely took place near Montreal, possibly about a week ago, Magnotta was arrested Monday in Berlin at an Internet cafe. Read more here.
