A sick adult star killer murdered and dismembered his gay lover in horrific footage that saw him jailed for life.

Luka Magnotta, from Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, brutally killed international student Jun Lin, 33, and cut up his body parts.

Lin had reportedly been looking for love on dating app Grindr, although Magnotta claimed the pair met on Craiglist when the victim responded to a sex and bondage post.

Magnotta had reportedly tried to break into the adult entertainment industry and shot dozens of pornographic materials to little success.

He also tried to work as a stripper and an escort and did appear in gay magazines under his pseudonym Jimmy.

The crime scene was discovered on May 29 but Magnotta had already fled the country to Paris on May 26, later sparking a huge manhunt once police identified him as a suspect.

He would eventually be caught a month later by Berlin cops at an internet cafe and was transferred to Berlin prison hospital on June 11.

Magnotta painted a screwdriver silver to look like an ice pick from the film, before stabbing Lin as he was tied to a bed.
