Police believe that Canada's bisexual porn star and alleged murderer has fled the the country, likely to France. The Wall Street Journal reports that Interpol has alerted police forces around the world, requesting the arrest of Luka Rocco Magnotta, who police say dismembered a young man and sent his severed foot and hand in the mail to separate Canadian political party headquarters

The astoundingly gory story also appears to have a Basic Instinct element, as police recently confirmed that Magnotta's video of the brutal murder shows "somebody stabbing a naked man with an ice pick before dismembering the corpse, eating some flesh and performing sexual acts with it," according to the Journal.

Details pointing to Magnotta's flight to France include a post to a Digital Journal website under Magnotta's name, which outlines how to disappear in six steps. "When making the decision to disappear, it is very important to understand that this is not a process that can be successfully accomplished overnight," he wrote in the post. "For best results under normal circumstances, a minimum of four months is really necessary to successfully carry out the heroic actions necessary to leave your old life behind."
