Canada: Severed Foot Sent to Party Office

Source: ABC News

A severed human foot was mailed to the headquarters of Canada's Conservative party and another body part was discovered when police intercepted a second suspicious package, police said Tuesday.

Police were called shortly after a receptionist opened a blood-soaked box at the headquarters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's party. The first officers to arrive saw what appeared to be blood stains on the package and immediately called in a special hazardous-material unit. When the specialists opened the package, police found the severed foot inside.

Police said the package was addressed to the Conservative Party of Canada and not to a specific person. Harper's office is not located at the party headquarters.

As the investigation developed, Ottawa police late Tuesday night that they intercepted a second suspicious package containing another human body part.

9. I'm afraid this might not be related and be far more sinister.

For one, I don't think feet washing up on shore could bleed, and this mentioned another body part being sent. This is like Hollywood horror movie stuff.

11. OK, it's not so funny any more: Second body part mailed to Conservative Party HQ

link:http://www.canada.com/Second+body+part+mailed+Conservative+Party/6700133/story.html

Ottawa police say a second package containing a body part has been found just hours after a stunned Conservative party receptionist opened a bloodsoaked box containing a human foot.

The first was found Tuesday morning in a package that had been delivered to the party's headquarters a few scant blocks from Parliament Hill.

An accelerating Ottawa police investigation led authorities to intercept a second suspicious package containing yet another severed human body part. Media reports said the package, containing a human hand, was not addressed to the Tory headquarters. Police released no other details about the second find beyond a bland assurance that the major crime unit continues to investigate.

Former porn actor suspected of mailing body parts to Canadian political parties

Canadian police have disclosed they are hunting a former porn actor in connection with the suspected murder of an acquaintance whose body parts were mailed to the offices of political parties.

Police said they believe the suspect, Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, recorded the killing and dismemberment.

"(Magnotta) is our No 1 suspect," commander Ian Lafrenière of the Montreal police said in a news briefing. Lafrenière said the suspect and victim "knew one another".

The crime was committed in Montreal, where the torso of the victim was discovered in a suitcase Friday. At least two other body parts were mailed to Ottawa. Police said they believe all the body parts are from one victim, a white male.
