As an ex stripper I can tell you it's not all about fluid motions though that can help at times. Eye contact and charm go a long way. These aren't ballet dancers (male strippers). And most dancers won't be remembered. They hop clubs pretty quickly usually, fit stereotypes, dress up so that they don't even look like their normal selves, use fake names, often don't even make close friends at work, etc.
There's no reason not to believe he was capable of doing fine in the sex industry. The vast majority, while never big names, can make a decent living off of it.
RE: Dancing Abilities
If I recollect correctly, LM did his stripping while very young...around age 19 (not sure on this..)? Anyway, much of his tippers and eventual prostituting clients where much older, over 50. Although it may have been technically "legal"...I still find it as having both a pedophillic vibe and having sex with predatory types. IMO, the older male predators could give a f*** about his dancing skills.
An ironic thought I have about this is that after years and years of having been preyed upon by older men....he himself preyed upon an innocent. Doubt this was conscious but none the less it's ironic.
However, I share your sentiments towards those who choose to believe the horrible and disgusting things Luka has posted yet they refuse to believe anything that might encite empathy or compassion, such as his allegations of abuse. Like I've stated previously, people only hear what they want to hear and only believe what they want to believe.
Does anyone know LM's last address and his prior address? This article is saying that police were looking for him at his prior address and he had just moved out. He told his landlord that he was moving to Toronto. In fact, he moved only a few kilometers away in Montreal. The move in February was abrupt.
IMO, there's a big difference between fibs, little white lies and flat-out pathological lying. Luka is a pathological liar, so trying to determine the truth in anything he's said or projected is a shot in the dark for any of us and almost an impossibility. Pathological lying can stand alone, but is also common in narcissism, anti-social PD, sociopathy and psychopathy, BPD, etc.
Other than what LRM has said online, we only have a very few facts to rely on in even beginning to know the truth .. statements by those who have known him personally and the facts we have learned from LE about the crime and the investigation.
Too many articles on the subject to choose any one link that is better than others, but just a quick google of pathological liar will keep one busy for ... years?
and wondered if this is how LM got inspired to make that christmas cat video?
was it released right after that post or the previous year?
Also, I've just read that craiglist ad you guys discussed in earlier threads,
and after I compared the contents with cutelittlenemo1 posts on animallovers and petsugar pet-peeves, there is no doubt in my mind that ad was written by Magnotta. It is the same story he used before. Even the expression "time waster" from the rape S&M board ads. I'm so sad for the dog from the video, hope he didn't suffer a horrible death like JL
IMO, the puppy was in the dumpster and went out with the trash. I hardly doubt LM cared enough about the animal to "find it a good home". He was ankle deep in Lin Jun's blood and busily butchering, washing and packaging body parts. To imagine him actually editing his video while body parts were scattered throughout his hovel is mind jarring. No, I don't see him "caring" for the puppy. He dispensed of the puppy after it performed its role in what would become LM's ghoulish magma opus.I'm so sad for the dog from the video, hope he didn't suffer a horrible death like JL
Ah, okay. Anybody's guess how the puppy was killed. I'm not a dog owner and am unclear as to a dog's natural instincts to lick/nibble away at human blood/flesh. I highly suspect he either didn't feed the dog as to make in so hungry it would eat human or that he enticed the dog to do so by putting something appealing to a dog on on Lin Jun's open wound as to get the puppy to munch on it. Given, he killed 4 cats in 3 horrible ways, I don't think we could know the "how" on this one. I had wondered if he'd mail the dead dog somewhere but that has not manifested so I'm sticking with my first hypothesis, that it's buried in the dump somewhere now.maybe I didn't express myself properly since english is not my native english.
I know the dog is dead, in the craigslist ad is says the dog 'will be in heaven'. I just hope Magnotta killed at once and didn't make him suffer. That's what I meant. Hope I made myself clear
Well I think his family will be called by the crown to appear in court so hopefully they will shed some light on his dysfunction. If you recall family said they had not seen for some time and mentioned how much he had hurt the family. LM's post online could be what they were alluding to, the posts against the family.
Just a thought, but LM is painted by many here as being a "copy cat" killer by bringing elements of famous serial killers and movies to his own alleged crime. While I think this is true, part of me thinks that we only witness his copy cat because he utilized the Internet to express it. I'm guessing serial killers are all inspired by other killers/movies/books/etc. I don't think these people just wake up one day and decide to kill in a particular pattern; they are influenced. The difference here is that we aren't privy to seeing these serial killers' influences because that would require much, much more effort than in the case at hand.
Even though this bothers me and I don't see it as giving him any credit, by virtue of the fact that he used the Internet and made himself so well publicized, makes him somewhat unique as an alleged killer. If proven guilty, he is the first google bomber killer.
Unfortunately I fear this is going to spawn others to act out on fantasies or a means to gain attention. On a lesser but still just as disturbing trend, you hear and see all these videos of mostly kids committing crimes and then posting them on the net. They seem to get off on who can out do the last video and LE can't even keep up. Even LE is seems desensitized, because it is so frequent and often not proven easy to catch these guys. Even the original guy who reported this killvid, wasn't taken seriously.
Well if you are the best: looking best model,person.dressor,friend,lover,escort you must be the best murderer too guys!
