31 May 2012

LYON, France – At the request of Canadian authorities INTERPOL has today issued a Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert, for Luka Rocco Magnotta who is suspected of killing a man and posting body parts to various locations around Canada.

29-year-old Magnotta, who is also known as Eric Clinton Newman or Vladimir Romanov, is believed to have fled the country and INTERPOL has circulated the Red Notice in all four official languages, Arabic, English, French and Spanish to its 190 member countries.

INTERPOL Red Notices serve to communicate to police worldwide that a person is wanted by a member country and request that the suspect be placed under provisional arrest pending extradition.

Further enquiries relating to the investigation should be directed to the Canadian authorities.
