    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.

    Torso found in Montreal garbage pile
    The major crimes unit of the Montreal police is investigating the discovery of a torso in a pile of garbage in the Côte-des-Neiges borough, west of Décarie Boulevard.

    Human foot found in ‘suspicious package’ at Conservative Party headquarters
    Authorities say they were called to the Tory offices at Albert Street at 11:20am.
    "Upon arrival, officers noted that the ... package had blood stains on it," the Ottawa Police Service said in a release, according to the Globe and Mail.

    WARNING: the video that is online depicting the murder is extremely graphic and we are not posting links to it here at websleuths.

    AFAIK this lawyer isn't licensed to practice anywhere in Canada. Even if he was, he'd be hauled up before the Law Society for his behaviour.

    Not yet. It's expect he'll be back sometime in the next two weeks, but sooner rather than later.

    That makes me think: I bet it was one of his sicko clients! I think Eric did all the killings for his own amusement, but that does explain what kind of other person might be in the room during that snake one. Or maybe another heavy fetish-prostitute? Not a whole lot would shock either of those groups.

    There are ranges of fetish stuff, of course. I don't know a good term to separate out the really gross stuff like some of what Eric (might have) described in those emails to his lawyer.

    fwiw, I don't think it's too difficult for an American lawyer to obtain permission to associate with Canadian counsel and practice there on a case-by-case basis. Similar, if not identical to, pro hac vice admission practiced interstate in the US. However, the rules may vary from one province to another.

    I'm sure in the earlier threads someone sleuthed an ad selling the exact same snake, but from outside Montreal, possibly Toronto. I remember thinking there can't be that many yellow pythons in the two cities, so wouldn't have been too difficult for LE to pursue this, if relevant in their eyes.
    I personally would think any lead is relevant to build their case.

    wasnt there a boston legal where allan shore and denny crane went fishing in BC, and somehow ended up in a BC court.. i think it had something to do with fish farms...

    i would be surprised if he wanted to come up to canada. sure its a high profile case, but after 32 years in the bar, this wouldnt be a well paid case.. i could see a young lawyer to make a name for himself.. but i dont see this guy wanting to.. thats if he would even be allowed which im not sure if he would

    It might be noted that the NYC attorney isn't firm-linked and may be leveraging to be so in the not too distant future, especially if he has prior dealings with the accused.

    It was quite a ways northeast of Montreal. But isn't this supposed snake/cat incident to have happened in NY/NJ at Christmas (right before he saw the NY lawyer?) It's not as if Luka would have brought the snake cross-border to NY with him.

    Hi. Okay, I'm new to Websleuths but find all the LM comments very informative and thought provoking. I haven't read every comment but would like to say that although some question if LM is a psychopath, I think it's a very real possibility. He certainly likely has multiple personality disorders. Just because he may come across as passionless, detached or "acting" doesn't mean he's not a psychopath. In fact it may support it. The absence of emotions, including passion during a murder are hallmarks of a psychopath. They lack a true self, so life IS ACTING....and at times its palpable and easily detected. I suspect that is why so many got the creeps when around him. I agree with others who say that LM intentionally used the poster to garner attention. I believe he not only wanted others to know it was him, but I believe it could well be a type of f-you to those on his animal killing trail. Likewise, I believe the use of the dog was another nod to it being him....AND again, a possible f-you to the animal lovers hunting him. Additionally, I wonder if the dog was used in the solitation of JL. The puppy would create a great ice breaker if meeting someone from Craigslist. A puppy is disarming. Someone is likely to assume good things about someone who just got a warm, cuddly puppy. I believe LM used the puppy in part to help make JL feel more safe and comfortable before he likely drugged him and committed the macabre acts that he did.

    Thanks. Yes, it's basically the same as a pro hac vice admission. And it appears that association with local counsel is not required in some or most cases, which is even less restrictive than it is within the US. Like most things, it's all about money!

    Luka Magnotta: How not to Disappear

    "Magnotta’s flight to Europe from Montreal on May 26 showed more impulse (if not panic) than planning, Ahearn said. “I don’t think he had much of an escape idea in his head,” Ahearn said. “I think (if) he did the crime … (he) thought, ‘Oh ****, I better get out of Canada.’ I also don’t think he thought the crime would become a worldwide piece of news and Interpol would become involved as well.”

    I don't see him wanting to get involved either. That's why I said "fwiw." I haven't even looked at his firm's site, so I'm not sure high profile criminal defense is even among his specialties.
