Documentary on alleged dismemberment killer pulled from Montreal film festival

MONTREAL - A documentary on alleged dismemberment killer Luka Rocco Magnotta has been pulled at the last minute from the Montreal World Film Festival and a French-language TV documentary channel.

"Sex, Fame & Murder: The Luka Magnotta Story" was yanked because of a publication ban in force at Magnotta's trial, which starts Sept. 8 in Montreal.

The film was produced by Toronto-based Hiltz Square Media.

The documentary was scheduled to be shown Aug. 23-24 at the film festival and Aug. 29 on TV's Canal D Investigation.

The film apparently contains interviews with people involved in the investigation.

Magnotta is charged with the murder of Jun Lin in Montreal.

Parts of the Chinese student's dismembered body were found in a suitcase in Montreal in May 2012 while others were mailed to political parties in Ottawa and a school in British Columbia.

Magnotta was arrested in Germany a month later during a global manhunt that made international headlines.
