Two Vancouver, British Columbia, schools have received packages in the mail containing body parts, and police said today they are investigating whether they are linked to the porn actor accused of hacking up his young lover and mailing pieces to Canadian government officials.

One of the schools received a foot and the other received a hand, officials told ABC News today, but they said it was too soon to say whether they were connected to the Luke Magnotta case.

Montreal Police confirmed to ABC News today that Magnotta also likely ate parts of his young lover's body and videotaped the gory feast.

In a mug shot taken moments after his arrest, a stone-faced Magnotta, who allegedly killed Chinese student Jun Lin, 33, stares steely-eyed into the camera, a stark contrast to the dozens of smiling images the rakish porn actor posted of himself online.

Nabbed by police at a Berlin Internet cafe Monday, Magnotta, 29, today was ordered held pending his extradition, and his mug shot was released.

The video also allegedly contains images of Magnotta stabbing a bound naked man with an ice pick, having sex with parts of the corpse, and putting fork and knife to his victim's body.

Magnotta is currently being held in a Berlin jail awaiting an extradition hearing. He could be returned to Canada as early as this week.

Magnotta was the subject of an Interpol "red notice," and on Sunday the international police organization posted three photos of a man passing through security at an unidentified airport. In the photos, a man who appeared to be Magnotta had been circled in red.

His alleged victim, Lin, was last seen on May 24 and was reported missing to the Chinese consulate on May 29, according to the Montreal Police Department.

On the same day, a human foot was found by a receptionist who received a blood-soaked package at the Ottawa headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada. A second package containing a hand was seized at a post office in Ottawa later in the day.

A janitor in Montreal found a male torso in a suitcase behind a apartment building in the Cote-des-Neiges neighborhood. Magnotta was a resident of that building, and Montreal police said he was in a romantic relationship with Lin.

Magnotta, who has appeared in adult films, and has previously posted videos of himself torturing animals.
