    CANADA: Luka Rocco Magnotta, wanted for murder and dismemberment

    Story still developing, but these two events may be connected. A suspicious package that turned up at Conservative Party HQ in our nation's capital seems to have contained a human foot. On the same day a torso was found in a suitcase in Montreal in a garbage skip. Political wags are already homing in on the symbolism of the act, but something far more serious may in play here.

    The following article on this situation contains interet comments by former RCMP profiler, Glenn Wood:

    I've never heard of anything like it. Way too early to tell, but it's interesting that at least part of the blogosphere is already reading this as a desperate political act. Whatever the motive, it's certainly deeply unsettling -- and it does come at the end of a very contentious few weeks in Canadian politics.

    wonder if there is any connection to the feet that washed up on shore in BC?

    I'd thought of that also -- was there ever an explanation for those feet?

    Six of the feet were identified.

    As for the one in Ottawa...has anyone seen Harper?? I think perhaps a boot would have been more appropriate.

    I don't mean to point fingers, but Canada has had a huge number of new immigrants in the last few years ... mostly to fill jobs ... with that, I suppose, comes a wave of new crimes more commonly seen in perhaps third world countries? The facts so far also remind me of something from tv ... like Criminal Minds ... perhaps some crazy copycat immitating fantasy.

    A former RCMP criminal profiler said it’s the first time he’s heard of a Canadian political party being the target of such a horrific act. “This is the kind of stuff you might see in developing countries where you have dictatorships and coups,” Glenn Woods said.
    ..........

    Well he certainly hit the nail with that one!!

    I'm wondering if there's any connection to the Syrian ambassadors being booted out of numerous countries, including Canada. That was just announced publicly today, but the decision would have been made prior to today. Would be interesting to know when the package was mailed and how that ties in timewise with when officials made the decision to oust the ambassador. Just a thought ... too early to tell much of anything.

    The capital’s police force announced late Tuesday night that they had intercepted a second suspicious package containing another human body part. Media reports identified it as a hand and said it was found at a Canada Post office and was not addressed to the Tory headquarters.
    OK, so who was this package addressed to? Who is the owner of the hand and foot? Is it a male or female? What is the skin color (if detectable)? How 'fresh' are these body parts?

    So many gruesome stories of late, what's going on?

    The news took another strange turn when reports from Montreal said police there were investigating the discovery of a dismembered body among a pile of garbage. A torso was apparently found inside a suitcase, but neither a head, arms or legs were anywhere nearby.
    Police could not say whether there was any link between the Ottawa and Montreal events.

    The foot and other body part were mailed from Montreal.
    Two human body parts found in Ottawa — a foot mailed to the Conservative Party of Canada headquarters and a hand found at a Canada Post terminal — came from Montreal, police have confirmed.
