"Seeking single white male, 28 - 38 years of age, white and in shape," writes Magnotta
Convicted killer Luka Magnotta is looking for love.
Magnotta, who was found guilty of murdering and dismembering his lover Jun Lin in 2012, has been allowed to create a profile on the website Canadian Inmates Connect Inc., which links up lonely convicts with people on the outside.
“Seeking single white male, 28 – 38 years of age, white and in shape. One who is loyal, preferably educated, financially and emotionally stable for a long term committed relationship,” Magnotta, a former stripper and prostitute, writes on his profile, posted Sunday.
He continues: “If you think you could be my prince charming, send me a detailed letter with at least 2 photos.”
Magnotta filmed his lover’s dismemberment and posted it on the Internet, then mailed his body parts to the Ottawa offices of two political parties, as well as various schools in British Columbia.
He was found guilty last December and sentenced to life in prison with possible parole after 25 years. His profile does not list his crimes.
The website, created by Melissa Fazzina, cautions its users that the inmates featured on it have been convicted of a range of offenses – but that doesn’t mean she thinks they shouldn’t be able to find love.
“A lot of people will think that [Magnotta] doesn’t deserve to be on the website or have access to communication with the outside world,” she told The Canadian Press.
She added: “But I still hold the same stance where I believe everybody is equally able to redeem themselves and rehabilitate themselves, and hopefully that will happen with him as well.”
