The mother of notorious killer Luka Magnotta, who sparked an international manhunt after he killed and dismembered a Chinese man he lured to his appartment and mailed his body parts to the Liberal and Conservative headquarters, wants her son released from prison early because of the coronavirus.
Unfortunately for Magnotta, that will not be the case, as Magnotta is not eligible for "any form of parole" until June 4, 2034, according to Correctional Services Canada.
Magnotta, who is currently in Port-Cartier Penitentiary in Quebec, has some risk of contracting the disease, as 15 employees and 15 inmates have contracted the virus, the CSC told TMZ.
Magnotta's mother, Anna Yourkin, told TMZ that she wanted her some released from prison due to the virus.
Magnotta reentered the public spotlight after Netflix's hit documentary, Don't Fuck With Cats, trended globally, covering Magnotta's story, starting with his torturing of small animals.
Magnotta's videos grew more and more disgusting, starting with kittens and eventually with the dismemberment of Chinese foreign student Jun Lin.
Magnotta then flew to Europe with a fake passport to escape police.
Yourkin insists that Magnotta is innocent, saying that a man named Manny Lopez orchestrated and forced Magnotta to commit the crimes. There is no evidence that Manny Lopez exists.
