Hunt is on for man linked to video showing alleged Magnotta killing

  • Print

EDMONTON -- Police in Edmonton are looking for a website owner who faces charges over a grisly video at the centre of the Luka Magnotta murder case.

Police say they have issued a warrant for the arrest of Mark Marek on a charge of breaching his bail conditions.

They are asking the public to help locate Marek, who was released from the Edmonton Remand Centre Thursday.

He is charged with one count of corrupting morals for allegedly posting a video from Magnotta while knowing it depicted a real killing.

The video allegedly showed the killing and dismemberment of Chinese university student Jun Lin in Montreal.

Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to murder and is to stand trial in September 2014.

At Marek's bail hearing, the Crown opposed his release, pointing out he had no Edmonton address and had made it clear to police that he planned to go back to his native Slovakia. Police had said he had been living out of his car since he returned to the city.

The defence said Marek had planned to visit family in the eastern European country in September, but didn't intend to run away from his legal problems.

Marek told the judge that officers had already seized his passport.
