Don’t F*** With Cats Left Out These 10 Major Details About Luka Magnotta

Unsettling Netflix documentary series Don’t F*** With Cats tells the story of Canadian murderer Luka Rocco Magnotta and a team of online detectives who sought out his identify before law enforcement. What made them do it? He posted recordings of himself killing kittens online under an assumed identity.

The three-part, one-hour-long series followed a growing online community’s quest to track down Magnotta, their cunning ability to find him, and law enforcement’s participation following his murder of Lin Jun, a young man.

The captivating series featured interviews with police enforcement, the two leaders of the Facebook group of “nerds” seeking justice, Magnotta’s mother, and others who were involved in various facets of the young man’s life. Over the course of three hours, a lot was covered. However, there are several noteworthy details that they omitted. (Warning: potentially upsetting and distressing content.)

He Declared Bankruptcy

Magnotta was just scraping by as a dancer, escort, and porn performer. According to records, he filed for bankruptcy in March 2007, as described by the Vancouver Sun. He owed more than $17,000 to several different creditors.

In the same year, in December, his bankruptcy was declared dismissed. He continued to work as a sex worker and would-be model, as far as is known. However, as the documentary series documents, he always found the time to make fictitious profiles and comments with pictures of himself pretending to be a successful model.

He Had a Troubled Family Life

Magnotta’s terrible childhood family life is only partially revealed to us, despite the fact that we see hints of it. He was the firstborn of three children, and according to reports, his mother had a cleaning obsession and occasionally locked the kids out of the house. According to Magnotta in a report by the Montreal Gazette, she had even allegedly abandoned their pet rabbits once, leaving them to perish in the cold.

His father eventually received a schizophrenia diagnosis after having a drinking issue that was reported on CBC. Magnotta was left to live with his grandma as a result. His parents were only 16 and 17 years old when he was born.

He Had Cosmetic Surgery

The documentary made reference of Magnotta’s obsession with his appearance and his desperation to break into the modelling or acting industries. But more than anything, he desired fame.

So it comes as no surprise that he even underwent cosmetic surgery at one point, even though it wasn’t mentioned in the docuseries. This is something that models and reality stars frequently do. But did he? With him, it can be difficult to distinguish between what is real and what is not. Nevertheless, he claimed to have had a nose job and a hair transplant, and he now wanted to have muscles inserted, according to Global News.

He Had Posted to White Supremacist Websites

Magnotta reportedly commented on a white nationalist website using two different usernames in addition to creating upwards of 70 separate Facebook pages when the social media platform was still in its early stages and 20 different websites using different names to boost his internet visibility.

According to reports, he disparaged Chinese people in one of his comments on that website. Lin Jun, the young man he ruthlessly murdered, was an international student from Wuhan, China, who was attending Concordia University in Canada to pursue a degree in engineering and computer science.

He Left Notes With the Packages

The documentary demonstrated how Magnotta severed Jun’s body, packed body pieces like hands and feet, and delivered them to institutions of higher learning. They omitted the fact that he sent letters along with the gifts.

Magnotta revealed that he had shipped a total of six packages in the notes, according to a CBC account of the trial. Additional letters were found in three other packages that were confiscated, but authorities decided not to reveal what they stated in order to stop copycat crimes.

He Was Convicted Of Fraud in 2005

Magnotta gained the attention of the local police long before the murder when he pretended to be a woman. He filed for a credit card and purchased more than $10,000 in furniture and gadgets from stores like Sears Canada, The Brick, and 2001 Audio Video, according to a report by The Guardian.

He admitted guilt after being charged with three counts of fraud, one for each retailer. But he avoided jail time. Instead, he received a probationary year and a nine-month conditional sentence.


He Was Home-Schooled

Magnotta was initially home-schooled, though he did eventually enrol in the public school system and attend a senior education in Lindsay, Ontario. According to CBC, his father said that as a result, his son was frequently alone and had little interaction with children his age. And he claims that even as a little child, he understood that Magnotta was “not normal.”

His mother, who never completed high school, planned to educate all three of her children at home. She was a terrible germaphobe and didn’t want them to use public facilities, which, according to his father, was one reason for this. Magnotta did eventually enrol in a public school, where he started to experience bullying.

His Father Has Schizophrenia

As reported by Global News, Magnotta’s father admitted throughout the trial that he had been hearing voices and contemplating suicide. This led to a diagnosis of schizophrenia. When Magnotta was 11 or 12, his marriage ended, and he was diagnosed. He keeps taking prescription drugs, including antipsychotics and antidepressants.

Interestingly, Magnotta’s father claims that when the young man was 19 or 20 years old, he brought Magnotta to a psychiatrist because he was worried about his behaviour. It was said that he was hearing voices. A decade before to the murder, Luka Magnotta had been given a paranoid schizophrenia diagnosis, was visiting a psychiatrist, and was taking drugs like Paxil and Ativan, according to the Montreal Gazette.

Luka Magnotta is Not His Real Name

Despite the fact that this name will always be associated with Magnotta’s horrible crimes, it was not his real name at birth. Magnotta was born as Eric Clinton Kirk Newman in the summer of 1982. He was given the names Clint Eastwood and Kirk Douglas in honour of the well-known stars who both starred in the film shown above. However, in 2006, he officially changed his name to Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Nevertheless, Magnotta frequently underwent name changes. He also used other identities, as mentioned in the docuseries, including Kirk Trammel, Jimmy, Justin, Angel, and Vladimir Romanov.

The Video Might Have Included More Than Murder and Dismemberment

Magnotta produced and uploaded a video titled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick in which he repeatedly stabbed Jun with an ice pick before dismembering him, as was depicted in the docuseries as an event that required a trigger warning. There was allegedly more to the video, but it was not shown.

According to The Daily Beast, an expanded version also depicts cannibalism, animal brutality, and necrophilia. Although none of this has been verified, the mere concept is horrifyingly unsettling.
