(Newser) – Attention-craving murder suspect Luka Magnotta posted three videos to YouTube while he was the target of an international manhunt. The Canadian porn actor—who was arrested while reading about himself in a Berlin Internet cafe—says "Hi to all my fans!" in one video, reports the New York Daily News. Another video features still photos of Magnotta with New Order's "True Faith" as a soundtrack, the same song that plays in the video he made of himself killing and dismembering a Chinese student in Montreal, say police.

Investigators believe that the severed hand and foot two schools in Vancouver received in the mail earlier this week belong to Magnotta's victim. The body parts were sent from Montreal, and have been returned there for testing. The victim's head is still missing, and police fear it may already have been mailed somewhere. There was a brief panic in Montreal yesterday when police found what appeared to be another severed foot near the site of the murder, but it turned out to be a rubber fake, the National Post reports. Cops suspect it was placed there by a prankster, who could face criminal mischief charges. (Read more Rocco Luka Magnotta stories.)
