A Canadian porn actor suspected of filming the dismemberment of a Chinese student and mailing his body parts may have fled to Paris and could be dressed as a woman, police say.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, who is suspected of cannibalism, is believed to have fled to Europe on May 26 after the murder of Lin Jun, 32, who he had been in a gay relationship with.

Lin was studying at Montreal's Concordia University. He was last seen on May 24 and was reported missing five days later.

A global manhunt was launched for Magnotta after a human foot was sent to the headquarters of Canada's ruling Conservative Party on Tuesday.

A hand was later found in the mail at an Ottawa post office, and a torso was discovered in a suitcase in a pile of garbage in Montreal.

A French detective told the Daily Mail newspaper police believed he had flown to France.

"He’s obsessed with the Eiffel Tower and the Moulin Rouge and is confident that he can lie low in a country he loves. All efforts are being made to arrest him," the detective was quoted as saying.

Montreal police commander Ian Lafreniere said the fugitive was "someone who can disguise himself; he can change into a woman, wear a wig."

A macabre profile of Magnotta has emerged from his acquaintances and hundreds of websites .

Several websites claim that Magnotta once lived in Los Angeles with American gay porn star Timothy Boham (also known as Marcus Allen), who was convicted in 2009 of the 2006 murder of a Colorado businessman.

The suspect has been dubbed "Canadian Psycho" because a video circulating online and believed to be linked to him shows a man stabbing another man with an ice pick and dismembering him while a song from the film "American Psycho" plays in the background.
The US white supremacist website Stormfront, run by former Ku Klux Klan leader Don Black, hailed him for supporting a freeze on immigration to North America.

It quoted Magnotta as lamenting that "blacks get their own countries, Chinese get their own countries... however, if white people want their own countries, then we are denied that right."

Others described Magnotta as a washed-up porn star and hustler, who allegedly posted videos online of himself torturing kittens to drum up notoriety.

A reporter from The Sun newspaper of London described meeting with Magnotta six months ago when he was looking into a video posted online of a kitten being fed to a snake. Magnotta was accused of uploading the video.

"I looked into his eyes and did not like what I saw," wrote reporter Alex West. "It wasn't just his appearance that was weird, his behaviour was very odd as well."

The newspaper said it received an email two days later, believed to be from Magnotta, stating: "Next time you hear from me it will be in a movie I am producing that will have some humans in it, not just pussies... Once you kill and taste blood it's impossible to stop."

Online reports also said Magnotta once dated Karla Homolka, who was convicted in 1991 of manslaughter following a plea bargain in the rape and murder of two teenage girls and of her own sister.

But in a 2007 interview with a Toronto newspaper, Magnotta denied knowing Homolka, who was released from prison in 2005 and moved to Montreal.

Canadian police warned against the accuracy of the online postings about Magnotta, and some suggested the suspect himself was behind most of the postings.

In an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Nina Arsenault, a transsexual who claims she was once Magnotta's lover, described her ex as being manipulative, a liar with a short fuse and often self-destructive.

Interpol on Thursday issued a Red Notice wanted persons alert for Magnotta, also known as Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov, to its 190 member countries after a video of the grisly killing surfaced online.
