Updated on Page 2 with the victim's reported identity.

L.A. weirdos really don't get any weirder than this.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, formerly a Los Angeles-based gay porn star (or, according to his Facebook profile, a "male model" who's had plastic surgery to look like James Dean), is now on Interpol's international watch list, reportedly on suspicion of committing 2012's goriest crime.

A bloody foot was mailed to the Conservative Party headquarters in Canada yesterday, followed by a bloody hand -- mailed this time to the Liberal Party. Magnotta, 29, is wanted in connection to the crimes.

Where to begin, really, on this guy's history.

He's made himself into public enemy No. 1 of animal-rights activists the world over, for a video they believe he posted of himself stuffing two kittens into a plastic bag and vacuuming all the air out. "1 Boy, 2 Kittens," it was called.

Yesterday, a similar video, posted by a "Luke Magnotta," caught the eye of Minnesota lawyer Roger Renville.

Named "1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick," it shows the brutal ice-pick murder of a bound-and-gagged victim, followed by a sexual assault of his lifeless corpse and -- finally -- a total beheading/dismemberment.

Here's the video, for those who dare. (As a warning, scenes sink to such nauseating lows as the killer eating the victim's asscheek with a knife and fork. Really.) And here are some excerpts from the vintage kitten-vacuuming gem.

The lawyer reportedly alerted Toronto police of "1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick," who then alerted national authorities, who took the case to Interpol. Investigators now believe Magnotta is on the run -- possibly in Europe, according to the National Post -- as his family in Canada anxiously awaits his call.

Here's how Magnotta became the prime suspect in the Canadian bloody-appendage mystery, via the New York Daily News:

Authorities linked the bloody appendages Tuesday to a torso found in a locked suitcase behind a Montreal apartment building.

The building's manager, Eric Schorer, said Magnotta had been living in the building for nearly four months. "He seemed like a nice guy," Schorer told The Canadian Press.

Several residents in the building told the Montreal Gazette newspaper that police believe the torso belongs to an Asian man who also lived in the apartment building and is apparently missing.

La Presse is calling Magnotta "Canadian Psycho" -- partly because the maker of the ice-pick video commits his heinous crimes with "True Faith" by New Order blaring in the background. The same track plays during the opening credits of American Psycho.

On his modeling website, Magnotta posts a psychotically long list of methods that "the media's propaganda machine" uses to report fiction as fact. (We'll interpret that as a plea of "not guilty.")

Montreal police announced in a press conference that the suspect and the dismembered victim "knew each other." Also, that the person who mailed the body parts included a letter saying "he would kill again."

The Sun

According to the National Post, the owner of the bloody hand and foot sent to the Canadian capital was 33-year-old Lin Jun, a Concordia University student from Wuhan, Hubei, China.

The Sun, however, has the most interesting and intimate updates on the killing. Reporters Tom Wells and Alex West say they actually communicated with a man who claimed to be Magnotta via email some months ago, and he told them: "Once you kill and taste blood it's impossible to stop." He said his next victim wouldn't be no kitten:

"... don't worry, in the near future you will be hearing from me again. This time, however, the victims won't be small animals. I will however, send you a copy of the new video I'm going to be making. You see, killing is different than smoking... with smoking you can actually quit."

Jun, the murdered Chinese student, was Magnotta's gay lover, reports the Sun. He was last seen on May 24.

Again, this could be an impersonator, but a since-removed March 2012 blog titled "Necrophilia Serial Killer Luka Magnotta" detailed the writer's deep love for dead people. "I don't see myself as some creepy pervert," it reads. "I'm just somebody who has feelings, real feelings, for dead men." Here's a cached version.
