It is odd the significant lack of anyone coming forward to claim they know him in a more in depth way. Some psycho/sociopaths just don't connect much, they lead more loner existences. He is an oxymoron of sorts, seemingly not really having any friends for any significant amount of time, yet he went through so much effort to get the attention of others. Enigma.
When I ran around with my psychopath, she was a life-of-the-party girl. Attention galore. But she didn't have many close friends. She had tons of friends, but few knew her well at all. In her case, and surely Eric's, it was harder to keep up the facade when being deeper and truer about her thoughts and feelings. She fared much better with jokes and chit-chat and party games.
An ex-girlfriend said that he did not like going out to socialize. Also, in the video of him at a night club he seems terribly uncomfortable, as others have commented here. But he does seem like he was very capable of putting on the charm when needed, as seen in interview footage.
Hey HAL9000 Welcome!!! wow, I've just heard that phone call, to me that's Luka for sure, IMHO it sounds exactly like him! just compare that phone call with the audio from some videos on youtube (like the plastic surgery audition and cover guy) or listen to some videos like "luka at his condo" or "Luka magnotta footage from summer", "luka saying hi to his fans". It sounds the same... creepy...
It does seem like he ended up spending most of his time on the web. I guess he got his attention there, but it was so troll-y that it baffles me that anyone would like that. I guess the web generation may feel differently about things like that, though. Maybe his web presence was his real goal and how he satisfied all his social urges.
"Meanwhile, others had come across Magnotta’s escort postings -- often under variations of "Jimmy" -- and had tried calling the phone number attached. That number was actually for a man known only by the name of "Bill," who appears to have been Magnotta’s handler. His ad, for “models gay, bi or straight for [private adult entertainment],” appeared in the Toronto Sun. He was contacted by Xtra and confirmed his name and occupation but declined to comment."
I was never left with the impression that his is charming when looking at the interviews he gave. I am left with the feeling "odd"...somthing is wrong..I found him to be zombie-like. IMO part of his lack of success is due to his gross lack of charm. He might have been much more successful, even as a prostitute had he more charisma.
But thats just my humble opinion...
The Toronto Sun interview about Homolka is case and point.
I mean, here is a guy who is claiming his life is being ruined by online rumours, and he's standing there talking about it in a calm and monotone voice and expressionless face.
Just throwing this out there, any chance that LM had a slight hearing problem?
Sometimes adult problems begin with a seemingly innocuous childhood physical condition.
One good reason( besides all the ones we know about) for being non judgemental, is it might generate tips from those people who might otherwise not report them.
The Interpol crackdown, a global operation targeting more than 500 people wanted by more than 50 countries, urges people to scrutinize photographs of wanted suspects to see if they have met them or may have stumbled across them on social networking sites online.
Assistance from the public can be crucial, say officials, who highlighted the recent capture of alleged killer Luka Magnotta as an example. Magnotta, who was wanted for the murder and dismemberment of Concordia University student Jun Lin, was arrested thanks to a tip just four days after Interpol Ottawa issued a red notice.
"It's a blitz we're doing. For us, everyone who's on a red notice, we're looking for them," said Sgt. Marie Damian, with Interpol Ottawa. "If we had more people looking at (suspects), that would be helpful."
Just like a photograph.
But think about it--if you're a narcissist you're really terribly insecure inside, creating a false self to hide the shame. You want to control that image of yourself so that others give you the positive attention you so badly crave, rather than negative attention. He probably felt uncomfortable in situations he couldn't control. ...definitely seems to have control issues and is probably terrified by solitary confinement.
If he was like a zombie he would have been sitting there, saying nothing, no smile on his face, no efforts to manipulate or engage. I wasn't saying I was charmed by him, but rather that he is capable of being that way when he needs to be. And you have the bias of watching his footage after knowing certain key facts. Most people he encountered before would not have guessed how depraved he was. Now, when he wanted to be creepy it was really obvious such as when he threatened the reporter.
#1,2,3,4 - Feet, hands to symbolic/societal entities
# 5 - "Mailing" - somehow "delayed" via "reminder" e-mail, or flower delivery, etc where one can specify deilvery date that included photo or description of head location
# 6 - "delivery" of a Ransomware virus, asking $100 per clear (maybe linked to searching on LRM postings?)
And in someone's very sick mind the "fame and fortune" he sought?? Thoughts?
I don't think he would have thrown an accomplice under the bus,I don't think he's admitting to anything?

Police located the final remains of Jun Lin in Montreal.
LE say it came from a "tip", which really could have from any number of sources:
- an anonymous tip from a random person who discovered the remains
- a non-anonymous tip from a random person who discovered the remains
- an anonymous tip from a non-random person who LRM has communicated with, but who played no role in the crime.
- an non-anonymous tip from a non-random person who LRM has communicated with, but who played no role in the crime.
- an anonymous tip potentially from LRM's legal team (LRM disclosed to his lawyers the location of the remains)
- no tip, just police work via data from LRM's computer, phone, apartment, phone conversations, or any number of other sources
- indirectly from LRM, who may have disclosed location to a police informant while in jail in Canada (or Germany).
- directly from LRM, who may have disclosed location to LE as a means to garner some advantage in sentencing if he pleads guilty
There are likely more options, but those are just a few that do not require us to complicate things and hypothesize accomplices and third parties, where there is no evidence for it, at least yet.
