Human head found in a park in Canada

The head is believed to belong to the Chinese student who was brutally killed and dismembered in Montreal last month.

INVESTIGATORS ARE EXAMINING human remains found in a park in Canada which are believed to the the final missing parts of Lin Jun, the Chinese student who was brutally killed and dismembered last month.

Police officers reportedly found a human head in a pond in the Montreal park, according to the Globe and Mail. Police found the remains after a tip from an unidentified source.

“We have to wait for analysis over the next days, the next week, to confirm whether it is a body part and whether it’s related to… the Magnotta case,” a police spokeswoman told the site.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, the so-called ‘Canadian psycho’ who is accused of killing and dismembering the Chinese student in Montreal last month appeared in court in late June where he pleaded not guilty to killing Lin Jun.

The torso of the 33-year-old student was found in Montreal but the head was missing.

Magnotta is also accused of sending body parts belonging to the victim to the offices of Canada’s top political parties.
