MONTREAL, CANADA – MAY 24, 2012 “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick” is one of the most famous gore videos on the internet, depicting the murder and subsequent sexual abuse of the body of 33-year-old Jun Lin. The killer was 30-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta (born Eric Clinton Kirk Newman).
Luka and Jun were both gay and met through an internet dating site. After spending the evening together, Luka invited Jun to his home. There he drugged him and brutally murdered him. He dismembered, disfigured and sexually abused his corpse. He recorded the entire event on video, which he subsequently published on the Internet. The goal was to shock.
Interestingly, the video of Jun’s murder was the last of a series of videos that Luka made and posted on the Internet. Before that, he filmed the murders of kittens, which he posted anonymously on the Internet to outrage people. A Facebook group was even created because of him, where people actively participated in the search for the author of the videos. There was also a whole series on Netflix about this.
