This picture of Luka Magnotta, which I believe was taken in prison, shows him looking very different the way he was earlier, in his relative youth, as you can see in the accompanying photograph. In the earlier photographs he came across as an androgynous-looking individual; quite pretty if that’s a good description. He’s filled out and now looks more adult and more normal. He likes to changes hair colour; it looks jet black although the quality of the image is not great and therefore the colours are not great either.
There is talk that he may be released from his life sentence early. He appears to be enjoying himself in prison or at least he is taking advantage of the facilities available. He got married to a fellow inmate, Anthony Jolin, on June 26th. Magnotta’s mom, Anna Yourkin, was the witness.
“We have movie nights. We all have our own TVs. I have painting class and I exercise a lot. I practice language studies”.
He was talking to Brian Whitney who has teamed up with Luka Magnotta’s mother to write a book about her son with the title My Son, The Killer: The Untold Story of Luka Magnotta and “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick. The last words are reference to his murder of Jun Lin which he videoed. Earlier he videoed the suffocation of two kittens in a notorious video which you can see on this website by the way.
Luka Magnotta is one of this generation’s most notorious murderers because of the extensive media coverage and his chilling psychopathic behaviour.
Luka Magnotta has been behind bars since 2014 and I’m told that he is now 38-years-of-age. Nobody has been able to talk to him throughout his time in prison, as I understand it, but the Toronto Sun got hold of some of his letters as well as some photos of him. See his handwriting style below. I believe that one of those photos is the one of him looking older on this page.
I would be surprised if he is released early. My gut feeling is that he would be a persistent danger to other people but I guess the parole board will decide. He has not, as I understand it, been imprisoned without parole.
