I'm sorry I even glanced at the Sun article.  :(

Homolka rumour ruins model's life

By JOE WARMINGTON, QMI Agency

"I am not dating Karla Homolka."

Luka Magnotta is the man's name and the 25-year-old is almost in tears as he passionately makes this point.

Now that declaration alone from someone might not normally warrant mainstream news coverage.

For example if someone came to our 333 King St. E. building and declared "I did not kill JFK" our security guys like John Culbert and Alan Miller would call the hospital and arrange for the person to see a psychiatrist.

And then along comes Luka Magnotta.

You can look up the name yourself on the Internet and you will find plenty of hits. One of the things you will find on Wikipedia is he also goes by Eric Clinton Newman and yet on his Ontario driver's licence it says Luka Magnotta. He said Eric is his birth name but "I had the name legally changed."

 
 
Now there have been rumours around for months that the self-described male model and adult film performer, who boasts of having an addiction to cosmetic surgery, has been linked romantically to the school-girl killer.

NO MYTHS HERE
I didn't take it seriously since the mainstream media does not cover urban myths.

But the rules kind of get blurred sometimes in the Internet world that is 2007 where there are just as many websites saying the hijacked airplanes did not hit the Twin Towers on 9/11 as there are credible news organizations who say they did.

Authenticity and the Internet is actually quite a subject since I predict one day somebody will pull a fast one that will make Orson Welles' War of the Worlds scare look like a high school prank.

With all of this in mind I am listening to my radio Wednesday night and an excellent show by AM 640's John Downs about the pros and cons of the Internet and Google and how it has altered the landscape. One of the callers was Magnotta, who seemed clearly upset about what he was describing as an on-going conspiracy to smear his name. "I have lost modelling jobs and have been receiving death threats," he told Downs. "People are so stupid because I don't even know Karla Homolka."

Magnotta, who showed me e-mails of his turning down other requests from other Toronto media outlets, agreed to meet us here at the Sun building yesterday and you can check out the video on torontosun.com. "I want to set the record straight," he said. "I not only have never dated Karla, I have never even met her."

Yet on the Internet it is rampant with discussion about this -- including on some Karla websites and on some gossip sites too. "I just wish it would stop," he said. "I wish they would leave me alone."

The young man was groggy and shaking as he spoke. "I took some sleeping pills and could not sleep last night," he said. "I have had death threats and someone stole my dog."

He says he thinks it's all because of this crazy rumour which, he claims, he has no idea how it got started. "I think it might be from someone in my past," he said. "I have worked in adult films and I have met lots of people."

We offered to get him some medical help but he declined. "I do have a therapist," he said.

Now I know what you are thinking. It has an Internet hoax feel to it. Either way it just shows the power of the Internet and what can be created on there. But what if it is not a hoax and that this human being is in need of assistance as a result of something posted on there?

"My life feels like it is spinning out of control," he said, his lips quivering.

If there is anyone out there who can help this young man I think this might be the right time to do it.

Meanwhile, I telephoned the kid's modelling agency and they did confirm he was on their roster and it did check out that there is lots of Internet buzz about this subject --including some who suggest it was Luka himself who started all of these rumours.

SMEAR CAMPAIGN

He insists the rumours were not created by him and that he is a victim of a smear campaign. "How would you like it if someone linked you to this?"

He said he's scared to answer his door and is spooked by e-mails and Facebook entries that claim to either be Karla or even her lawyer Sylvie Bordelais, who did not return a call to the Toronto Sun last night.

The latest word on Karla is that she is married and has a child in Montreal and has nothing to do with Luka Magnotta and never did. Hopefully this column today will result in a man getting some help and another crazy urban myth being put to bed once and for all.

It could also serve as another example of just how powerful the Internet really is.

What is unbelievable is how this guy was not arrested in 2011.  Animal Rights groups investigated very disturbing videos of Kittens being killed, and eventually identified Luka as the perpetrator, after GPS coordinates revealed it had originated from the Toronto area, and the suspect was positively identified as Luka Magnotta.  Even after numerous people alerted Police on May 25, in regards to the video, the FBI and Toronto Police dismissed it as being fake, until body parts were mailed to Conservative and Liberal Party headquarters.

I have a feeling this could turn out to be possibly the biggest crime story in recent memory in Canada, perhaps even eclipsing the Homolka murders of 20 years ago.

This freak has been described by a former girlfriend as a narcissistic attention whore (some of the terminology has been proven, by pure definition...) and it is highly suspected that HE started this Homolka business, the rumours, etc. so that he could gain notoriety.

To be honest, I am still waiting for more concrete storyline on things because it all seems disjointed right now and there are different things floating around. I am also keenly aware that to a guy like this the fervour it has created is likely to get him off.

The authorities can do amazing things with the internet nowadays. It wouldn't surprise me whatsoever if this dolt's own ego and narcissism is his eventual downfall. I'll say no more on that right now.

I realize that it's a sensational story, but wish the media would stop terming him as an actor vice a participant. Nish

What police are also doing is downplaying reports of romantic ties between the suspect and Karla HomolkaA mainstream media report five years ago suggested Magnotta needed professional help and it cited friends suggesting a theory about how the Homolka rumours actually started: they hinted the attention-hungry young man had spread them himself, on the Internet.

Criminal-behaviour experts contacted by The Canadian Press said the behaviour exhibited by Magnotta clearly fit the profile of a man with a desperate need for attention.

There is a story on a gay and lesbian news site that reports an old girlfriend describing Magnotta the same wayas a narcissist desperate for attention. In that account on the Xtra! news site, she is also quoted saying he spoke constantly about serial killers and was obsessed with Homolka.

I, for one, will not be watching the video. I fully believe in the media's ability to give a synopsis of its contents.

This isn't a judgement or rebuke of anyone who has, but I believe that the more views it gets the more of a jolly it gives this guy, and I am not about to do that in any way, shape, or form.

His ego will get him caught.. however, he is NOT in France or anywhere near it. Read his how to disappear.... leave a trail one way but go a separate way... He is the puppet master of the police right now.
I'd be willing to bet that San Fransisco or anywhere else with an excessively large homosexual population where he can blend in.

And I will bet he is right in Canada in a large city like Toronto, or Vancouver something like that. laughing at the police and the world.

I don't wish to view the murder video and think it would be disrespectful to the family of the victim and the  victim himself to circulate and post it. Remember how sensitive the French and Mahaffey families were on that point and understandably so. They eventually were able to have the videos destroyed of their daughters (who were killed by Homolko and Bernardo).

Maybe now that the identify of the victim is released  and we have a picture of the him and know a bit about his life, people can put this into perspective and try to preserve the victim's dignity.

I certainly have no intention of viewing his sick movie, how ever it is in public domain already , it is on utube and various other sites, thus I dont suppose it would make any difference if it was here.  How ever I have not noticed that that particular video of him killing the young man was posted on this site? Is it? thanks.

I agree eyeswideopen - my first reaction is that he never left the country, or if he did, he left briefly to change identities and returned. My intuition also says Vancouver. He lived in Toronto so has some contacts there but I suppose it is likely to blend in - however, people there will be on high alert and I sure wouldnt want to be the police having to follow every single lead as everyone calls in someone that remotely resembles him.
I also question some of the articles with the speculation of WHY he did it. It has nothing to do with the victim. Wrong place wrong time for the late Mr Lin. He had the misfortune to cross paths with a sexual sadist.
I wonder if Magnotta (or whomever he really is) also has a history of  late bed-wetting and arson as a child... combining those with his penchant for torturing small animals is the triad associated with serial killers.
I hope that the LGBT communities are plastering posters of his face all over so that no one else will fall victim to his  sick obsession.
