Thu, Jun 7: Global News has obtained exclusive video of Luka Magnotta's audition for a plastic surgery show called "Plastic Makes Perfect" that aired on Slice in Canada. Magnotta was found and arrested by police in Berlin, Germany. He is currently a suspect in the Lin Jun murder case where body parts were mailed to various cities in Canada. Watch the entire audition online.
To those asking us why we're showing the Magnotta audition video, and/or accusing us of sensationalizing the story: we really appreciate the feedback, and the opportunity to explain why we're doing this.
The video Global News has obtained totals more than 20 minutes of an unscripted Magnotta discussing his addiction to plastic surgery, his view on physical appearance, and the effect his behaviour has had on his personal relationships. We are publishing this not as simple voyeurism but in the context of understanding someone accused of one of the more horrific crimes in recent years.
While this video is offered without context, rest assured that context and analysis will soon follow. Global News has spoken with behavioural experts to get their take on what Magnotta is saying and revealing in this video -- the most complete single video record of him to date.
We feel this video, the transcript (www.globalnews.ca), and surrounding analysis will help our viewers and users better understand a major figure in the news right now. That has always been, and will remain, our primary motivation.
