    I'm wondering who else will be called to testify from other countries. Berlin? Paris? Either in the prelim or in the 'real trial' if one takes place.

    From dotr's post above:

    <<< He was also sporting glasses with dark frames" >>>


    Well, it thrills me to pieces that he's wearing the latest thing in eyewear! The black, librarian-look. God forbid he should be out of fashion!!

    Interestingly enough we haven't heard a peep about the guy in Paris who Magnotta allegedly hooked up with and spent circa 36 hours at the guy's place.

    When the story was originally published I initially believed it but that week there was zero additional reporting on it and I posted that I suspected that the entire story was malarkey. I'm betting I'm right.

    Has anyone heard anything about the Paris hookup since the initial report?

    Is the attire quoted above (minus the glasses) standard prisoner clothing/uniform in the Province?

    I ask this because if it's not standard inmate attire, it certainly is not attire that demonstrates respect for the Crown.

    Thoughts?

    I'm in Ontario, but I'm sure its the same or similiar in Quebec, and I remember hearing they came to a compromise about a defendant's appearance. They don't require you to wear a suit and pants, but they don't make you wear your prison garb either , so you can dress casual with whatever's available. Some choose the high road or the low road depending on whether they care or not how they look.

    You can bet Quebec taxpayers paid for the glasses, ultimately!

    Yes, that's been hushed up big time as you said, since it originally broke. I've always wanted more insight into that. I guess we'll find out soon. If true, that testimony would be very interesting.

    I'm probably going to have to wait for the trial for this, but another conflict of info I'm awaiting to hear is the actual time he landed in Berlin. There's 2 versions. He left on the bus on friday night around 6pm from Paris and should have arrived noonish Saturday. That seemed the most logical answer, but there's a few conflicting reports, one from the Montreal police who seemed to say he landed in Berlin on the Monday morning, hopped the subway, popped out of the subway at Neukoln and right into the Webcafe where he was nailed. He had no bags or anything with him. What was he up to Sat noon - Monday morning in Berlin? It's a black hole of time unsubstantiated.

    Wasn't he seen in a bar with a glass of Coke with "Mr. Muscles"?? I'll have to go back and read through the threads again.

    Thanks Haunted.

    I'm surprised that his lawyers (the ones that haven't withdrawn from the case) would not strongly encourage him to wear an outfit that conveys respect and professionalism to the Crown. Jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers could annoy a judge or be viewed as disrespectful.

    Shortly after his arrival in Paris; right?

    Note: Mr Muscles and 36 hour hookup (or as I like to call him 'Liar. Liar. Pants on Fire' lol) are two completely different people.

    You left out the best part:
    While viewing online photos of himself.

    Maybe clothing choice was part of why the lawyer quit, on the other hand- maybe wearing jeans, tshirt and running shoes might help LM appear younger and more naive...

    I think the whole murdering, dismembering and cannibalizing a human being, filming it and promoting the film thing tends to trump the aura of young & naive... That's just my opinion, I could be wrong...

    Crying again, Who knew LM was sooo sensitive ?!..

    "MONTREAL &#8212; The janitor who worked at Luka Rocco Magnotta's apartment took the stand at the accused murderer's preliminary hearing Friday.

    Michael Nadeau appeared nervous as Crown attorney Louis Bouthillier questioned him.

    At one point during the janitor's testimony, Magnotta's face turned red and he dabbed his eyes, bowed his head and and put his hand on his chin"

    I believe the emotions were real and Magnotta was crying because the truth came out on the record in Court; remember Luka was proud to tell anyone of his rich & famous lifestyle and those tears genuine because Luka felt exposed because the world now knows he lived in that dump.

    It was Magnotta who made it a "dump", to the discredit of people who call the building home.

    Indeed. We need to remember that what is said in shaming people like Magnotta (who very much deserves it), can inadvertently resonate with others (who don't deserve it, like the other residents of Magnotta's apartment building).

    For example, the Proactiv joke is something I heard more than once in high school. :blushing:

    As usual, just :moo: and :twocents:. I apologize if I sounded preachy! Not my intention.

    About the clothing - having him looking young and naive could backfire badly. How many escorts are really that naive? Aren't they going to present him as a male escort? They have to say he did something to make a living, don't they?

    About the crying - his entire charade of a life is being exposed. I suppose I'd cry as well. Mind you......I have little pity. Perhaps he's crying because it's starting to look like he'll be in a tough prison for life rather than another type of institution. A hospital for the criminally insane is no picnic, but at least they give you drugs and try to keep you comfortable. Prison is another ball game entirely.

    "Heads up" ?
    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2013/03/15/20658111.html

    "A young man who bears a resemblance to Magnotta has been in the courtroom this week, identifying himself as Kyle from Raleigh, N.C.

    The slightly-built, boyish-looking man with sharp features and short brown hair says he drove 1,400 km over three days to watch the hearing.

    He sat in the seat closest to Magnotta in the public gallery Friday, gazing at him several times.

    Magnotta did not return the gaze.

    Court officials pulled the man aside at one point and spoke to him, asking questions about his well-being"

    I agree that Magnotta deserves the best defense possible; frankly I believe everyone facing charges in Court deserves the best defense possible.

    I apologize if my comment was misconstrued to be interpreted in a manner different than my original intent. I was responding to the notion that the clothing choice may have been to paint Magnotta as naive because most who have followed this case understand that if you exclude the crimes that he is facing trial for, there is still a mountain of evidence from long before and immediately after the murder to demonstrate that Magnotta is not naive in any way. A defense that might try to paint Magnotta as naive is not the best defense possible.
