The gay-porn star accused of killing his lover, chopping up his body, and then mailing parts across Canada is being investigated in connection with an unsolved murder in Hollywood.
Luka Rocco Magnotta was arrested in Berlin, and had said the taste of blood wouldn't let him stop killing. But he'd been accused only of killing 33-year-old Jun Lin, a computer and engineering college student who was Magnotta's onetime lover, and of posting video of killing kittens. Now Fox News reports that Magnotta is under investigation in Los Angeles.
The head of Hervey Medellin, a 66-year-old gay man who lived in Hollywood, was discovered in January near a hiking trail in Bronson Canyon Park. His hands and feet were later found too, near the famous Hollywood sign.
Police want to know where Magnotta was around the time of the crime, Fox News reports.
