A gay-porn actor is accused of stabbing a man to death, chopping up his body, and then mailing parts of his body across Canada.

Luka Rocco Magnotta is being investigated by Montreal police for sending a human foot to the headquarters of Canada's Conservative Party, and a hand was intercepted by police on its way to the Liberal Party, according to the National Post.

CTV reports that a note sent with the foot claimed that six body parts had been sent in the mail. A foul-smelling torso was found in a suitcase behind an apartment building.

INTERPOL has issued an international warrant for Magnotta, reports the National Post, which has obtained a gruesome video of the crime in progress.

Here's how the Post describes the video:

"The nearly 11-minute-long video purports to show Mr. Magnotta attacking a naked male, who is tied to a bed frame, with both an ice pick and a kitchen knife, according to the description.

"The victim is stabbed, has his throat slashed and is later decapitated and dismembered. The video, filmed in a dimly lit room, also shows the killer playing with his victim’s limbs and using one of them to masturbate. The attacker later performs a sex act on the corpse.

"The video was posted on Best Gore on May 25, but it is unclear when, or where, it was filmed, although police have confirmed Magnotta’ s Montreal apartment was a crime scene."
