Gay porn actor serving life sentence for murdering and dismembering sex partner is enjoying prison life

A Canadian former gay porn actor serving a life sentence for murder is writing letters to friends filled with details about how much he is enjoying prison life.

‘I really hope you’ll be able to make it in July to the little cottage here,’ Luka Magnotta wrote to a friend in March. ‘I’ll fill out the form and put you on the list. I’ll go shopping for the food and movies. We have movie channels and movie night here so I can get any title.’

The Montreal Gazette reveals in a series of letters that Magnotta does not hate his punishment for murdering and dismembering Chinese exchange student and sex partner Jun Lin who he met online in 2012.

‘Our doors are open 90% of the time so for me I feel like I’m in a university setting,’ he wrote of life in the prison 40 minutes northwest of Montreal.

Magnotta admitted to killing Lin who had responded to his Craigslist ad for a bondage partner. He then mailed his limbs to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and two elementary schools.

A police investigation began after a headless torso was found near Magnotta’s home in May 2012. He fled to Europe and was arrested at a Berlin internet café while reading news about himself.

From prison, he writes of ‘pizza parties’ with friends, ‘all this chocolate for Valentines Day … ruining my diet,’ and that ‘the food here is really, really good and they serve a lot. The Italian is the best. I also love the ice cream.’

But if he overindulges, he works it off ‘through dancing and running.’

‘I’m really enjoy playing hockey and tennis and I’ve lost a lot of weight,’ he wrote to a friend. ‘I’m looking forward to next month when the volleyball nets outside will be put up. I’ve always been an amazing player. We have a nice gym here too for exercising. It’s really important to getting the results I want. I spent 2 hours playing sports, one hour exercising and at night I go outside for a walk in the garden. The lilacs are my favourite.’
