Convicted cannibal killer Luka Magnotta has received an update on his possible release.
Magnotta, 37, is serving life in prison in Canada for Jun Lin’s brutal murder and breakup in 2012.
His infamous actions were once again spotlighted by the 2019 Netflix crime documentary Don’t F ** k With Cats.
Magnotta, a former porn star and escort, will not be eligible for parole until 2034, but recent press reports suggested he could be released as part of a scheme that protects prisoners during the corona virus outbreak.
Now that the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has confirmed that there is no chance of Magnotta even being released temporarily.
“Mr Magnotta is not legally eligible for any form of parole,” CSC said in a statement to TMZ.
So far, there have been 15 cases of coronavirus among prisoners in Magnotta prison, of which 11 have fully recovered.
Another 15 prison staff tested positive. No deaths have occurred.
CSC has only included violators who do not pose a risk to the public, and Magnotta automatically excludes that.
His ex-girlfriend Barbie Swallows told the Daily Mail that she hopes he dies from coronavirus.
“He knows the difference between right and wrong – he deliberately killed an innocent victim and those sweet little kittens,” she said.
“I hope the corona virus finds him in prison. He doesn’t regret what he did and only cares about himself. “
Don’t F ** k With Cats was a three-part series that followed a group of amateur detectives who launched a manhunt for Magnotta after sharing a nauseating video in which he choked two kittens himself.
His viral video 1 boy 2 kittens was posted on Facebook in 2010.
Magnotta later brutally murdered Chinese international student Jun Lin in May 2012.
A gruesome video titled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick was later posted online, showing Lin’s brutal murder before cutting the body and feeding parts to a dog.
Police also suspected that Magnotta was engaged in cannibalism with the corpse.
He was found guilty of first-degree murder and committing humiliation of a body, as well as mailing obscene and indecent material and publishing obscene material, and the criminal harassment of then Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
