With the very recent news exposure of his online dating request, Luka just can't seem to stay away. He was addicted to becoming famous and willing to do whatever it took. The author covers this fact very well in the book. She does an exceptional job at researching all the facts of this case and bringing it all together for us. I don't imagine that was an easy task given the media sensation it was and the amount of information she had to sift through.
There's lots of background info on Luka's upbringing and mental illness history included; as well as a detailed description of the sadistic video posted on the net (not for the faint-hearted folks). However, the heartrending victim impact statement by Lin Jun's father is something everyone should read and made this book one of my favourite reads this year.
Highly recommend it to all my fellow fans of True Crime.
New author Cara Lee Carter does an excellent job of telling the story of a man, born July 24, 1982 by the name of Eric Clinton Kirk Newman!
Eric's childhood was not the easiest. At the age of 6 his mother would dress him like a girl and even made him wear diapers because of bedwetting! In 2006 Eric legally changed his name to Luka Rocco Magnotta. Luka wanted a life of fame and fortune...(he would eventually achieve one of these)!! He tried out for tv reality shows but was never selected. He also did some pornography films! These were also not his road to fame. Although when you read the book, you will find one film that was posted to a pornographic version of U-tube that helped him achieve fame!
In May of 2011 Magnotta committed the horrific murder of Lin Jun.(also known to friends as Justin Lin) A young Chinese man who had moved to Canada for a better life. And life was better for the young man...Until he met Magnotta! Not only did Lukas Magnotta brutally murder Justin Lin, he videotaped the murder and then posted it to the internet!!
As I stated before, this book is very GRAPHIC, not only with descriptions but also pictures but Author Cara Lee Carter did an AMAZING job of telling this gruesome story and stays sympathetic to the victim and his family! I hope Cara writes more True Crime in the future!!
Very well written book by Cara Lee Carter with a great job in telling the story of Luka Magnotta and Lin Jun. This is book #5 in the Crimes Canada
series. Get them all this is a great series with 24 books in the series one released each month.
