Luka Magnotta was a sometime gay porn actor and male escort. He posted a series of videos showing himself killing kittens. He killed an acquaintance, also on video, and cut him up, eating some pieces and mailing others to political parties. He was on HFBoards. Of course he was on HFBoards.

Magnotta was arrested in Berlin yesterday, and will soon be extradited to Canada. In the past week, internet sleuths have been sniffing out the wheel-ruts of his prolific online presence, and what do you know—it's a sports angle.

The posters at HFBoards.com have dug up a post made by Magnotta back in December of 2010, ranking his top five Russian hockey players. He apparently made multiple posts, but never more than one per username. His username here is "Katherine Trammell," a misspelling of Sharon Stone's character from Basic Instinct. He tags the post with the name Luka Magnotta in Cyrillic. (Magnotta was obsessed with Russia, among other things. He had a Russian alter-ego, and wrote often of Russia and Russian hockey players on his blog.) Magnotta ranked Ovechkin the best, in front of Datsyuk, but it was 2010 and people still believed that, so don't judge him harshly.

There's more. A link to this YouTube video, again tagged with his name, and uploaded by user "BasicInstinct1212121." It was posted last March, and it's a four-minute tribute to Sergei Federov, set to music. The mind of a killer, man.
