The alleged murderer
, who was restrained on the plane and accompanied by officials and law enforcement from both countries, was met in Montreal by a convoy of emergency vehicles and armed guards. He was escorted out of the plane by six men and led into a minivan.
Magnotta is expected to face a judge tomorrow, and the charges against him (outlined below) could change. Montreal police are eager to question Magnotta to find out, among other things, where victim Jun Lin's head is located. They are hoping to find all of Lin's body to bring some sort of closure to his family.
Note: This is breaking news and more details may emerge throughout the day.
After a worldwide manhunt, Magnotta was arrested June 4 in a Berlin Internet cafe for the alleged murder and dismemberment of Chinese Concordia University student Jun Lin. The crime was videotaped and uploaded to a gore site, and subsequently viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. After dismemberment, Lin's hands and feet were sent by mail to Conservative and Liberal party headquarters in Ottawa and two area schools in Vancouver. The package mailed to the Liberal party was intercepted by Canada Post before final delivery.
Magnotta is charged
with first degree murder, indignity to a human body, producing and distributing obscene materials, and criminal harassment of the Canadian Prime Minister. He did not fight his extradition from Germany to Canada.
Lin is remembered by his parents, extended family, friends, and members of Concordia University as being a kind, responsible straight A student who saved for years to study in Canada.
