Photo of person accused of filming himself killing kittens
This is a photograph of the young man who is accused of torturing and killing kittens while allowing accomplices to film him on a camcorder.
This double kitten killing (I believe it was 2 kittens) is perhaps the single most notorious act of cat cruelty on the internet. It is certainly highly notorious and I wrote about it quite a long time ago (note: there are no grizzly videos to avoid seeing).
I say he is “accused” of this act of barbarism because I am not completely sure he is the person but a recent comment by Phil on PoC told me that he is:
Just googled this. Seems you guys are not informed they already have him, because he continued killing – but a human this time. His trial is soon. (Wiki link to Luka Magnotta)
Thank you Phil.

The Wikipedia webpage states (in relation to the kitten killings):
He was previously sought by animal rights groups for allegedly uploading videos of himself killing kittens.
That single line indicates he is identified as the person. The source of that information is stated as being: Mark Kelley (November 30, 2012). “Hunting Magnotta”. The Fifth Estate. Season 38. Episode 12. CBC. The link to the page is broken.
Secret online investigators tracked him down over 2 years. The video of that investigation is “currently unavailable”. This might be because, as I understand it, the trial of Magnotta is about to start. This is a screenshot of the video on CBC Player:
Wikipedia also states that he changed his given name from Eric Clinton Kirk Newman to Luka Rocco Magnotta. He seems to be obsessed with the mafia.
A still photo from the video which was deleted soon after being published does closely resemble him (except for hair length – look at the mouth which I think is the giveaway):
Magnotta is a paranoid schizophrenic and former porn actor. Following his alleged torture of the kittens he is accused of killing and dismembering Lin Jun a Chinese student and sending body parts to schools. There is a video of him stabbing and having sex with Jun’s dismembered corpse.
Proof that abusing animals – and cats are prime targets – often leads to violence on people.
Actually … he is CURRENTLY on trial here in Canada for murder (for the gruesome slaying in Montreal of Concordia student Jun Lin). Chopped him up and ate parts of him … Magnotta is also charged with committing an indignity to a body; publishing obscene material; criminally harassing Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other members of Parliament; and mailing obscene and indecent material. He has admitted to the charges … check his name on Google for info about the trial. He’s one sick, sadistic prick!
Yes, he is about the sickest prick I have stumbled upon on the internet. Thanks for that extra info J. Martin.
Sorry, some acts need to dealt with in the same regard they gave their victims. A sick bastard likes this needs to be killed by law. He is a waste of space and will bring nothing but sorrow and suffering around others.
If I had the power, I could hurt someone like this. I would like for him to suffer physically, but also for him to know terror and a state of hopelessness, just like those precious kittens felt. I can hate someone like this and not feel guilt over it.
I also have the ability to hurt someone like this because I have so much anger inside me against this sort of sicko. I’d actually like to hurt him.
Me too Cindy, anyone who hurts an innocent animal deserves to be hurt themselves, they would never ever do it again.
This monster is another reason I’m in favour of the FBI’s proposal to register and track animal abusers. He’s living proof that anyone sadistic enough to torture and kill defenceless animals, often moves onto to killing humans.
I hope it’s more than a myth that animal abusers often experience “street justice” from fellow inmates when they enter the prison system.
Agreed. One of the problems is that cats get hurt first which allows law enforcement to hopefully then protect people. Cats are too vulnerable.
Agreed with Michael
Why the blunt end? Oh, the sharp end may end it too quickly?
LOL. You get two or three hits with the blunt end. More fun. 😉
I cannot even verbalize what I would want to do to a person like this if I had the power and opportunity. It is ugly and hateful and it is not something I like to think I am capable of doing.
I’ll say it: put a brown carrier bag over his head and hit it with the blunt end of an axe. How about that? 😉
Cruel Michael, I belief that cruelty must end but our response to such cruelty must not be with cruelty 🙁 I hate cruelty in any ways.
I feel like hurting him (a lot).
It’s TRUE Michael, I know when a cat or kitten is just killed in front of some one, what the feeling can be.
Today, Me and my wife drove our bike upto more than 70 KM with in three hours, we stayed aside and took 5/10 minutes rest. Just to see the population of the cat within our city. We found many FERAL DOGS and a dog was eating a full cat. Michael! It was my first feeling to just kill that dog but he was one of the species of my PUZZO puppy. PUZZO was a puppy girl. My wife said to me, why tears in your eyes Ahsan? I replied that we are becoming same as these innocent (natural predators) but still I believe that we are human beings and tackle the situation in the better and the best ways.
I have no place for cruel people though but I may say that CRIMINAL PSYCHOLOGY is a branch of the subject psychology which deals with these kind of psychos who kill animals or human beings, then the LAW is prevailing in the best shape of planet earth in the WEST. If I will think to JUST BEHEAD him so there is no any difference between me and TALIBAN.
I am waiting for the post, (ofcourse you will let us know here, or who will else, I am fan of your articles) what the court of LAW has decided about him?
That will be the conclusion of the whole scenario whether the STATE is interested to protect their property free roaming or it decides to let those cruel people go and do what so ever they believe to do within the rules they have about cruelty towards the innocents 🙁
You are right of course. We have to retain our dignity and standards in dealing with people who are cruel. As I get older I become less tolerant of cruel and ignorant people.
Same with me but what can we do, Michael? (crying)
We can realise that dying isn’t so bad. It gets us off the planet.
Me too Michael
Scum of the earth, he deserves to suffer as much as he made the kittens suffer, but he won’t, cat abusers don’t get punished enough by the law. It’s down to Karma to give them their just deserts and I really hope it does exist!
Don’t want to revisit this horrific crime today.
Don’t blame you but this is just showing the world who did it. I think we need to show the world the person.
Actually there are more disturbing acts of viciousness going on that can be seen around the internet depicting a trend that involves pure evil. I had the displeasure of viewing and only for a few seconds a video showing a woman wearing stilettos and was crushing a kitten to death with the heel.. Apparently, this is some sick sexual fetish that men get into and the woman has the video made. I got physically ill after seeing what i saw. Never again! Some people don’t have the right to even breath the air we breath!
Crush videos. There are a couple of pages on that nasty subject on PoC. The world is sick and for an old geezer like me it seems to be getting sicker.
Well, i think it disturbs some of us regardless of our age! The true helplessness of it all Michael, is what do we do about it? What can we do? I get so frustrated because i want to bring change and help people and animals both, and i feel my hands are tied. The world seems to be in the clutches of terrible turmoil and chaos with no end in sight. Man leading man to his end. All the earth is affected by the twisted violence and our dear animals suffer right along with the rest of the misdirected. It truly disgust me!
I feel like you and it is pretty depressing. I don’t see progress and improvements and if we can’t improve our world what chance is there for cats?
