ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Surveillance video was released on Monday (October 6) from the apartment of a Canadian man accused of killing and dismembering a Chinese exchange student in 2012. Canadian Luka Magnotta, 32, has admitted to killing Jun Lin, 33, videotaping his acts and mailing parts of the body to elementary schools and to two political parties. He is pleading not guilty due to mental illness. The footage was shown to a jury in a Montreal courtroom where Magnotta is on trial on Thursday, but wasn't released to the media until Monday. Grainy footage taken from four security cameras on May 24, 2012, showed Magnotta and Lin entering the weathered Montreal apartment building, which overlooks a busy expressway. Over the next day, Magnotta is repeatedly seen entering and leaving the building, carrying and disposing of black garbage bags and a gray suitcase, his trips interrupted occasionally to fix his hair in the entrance mirror. Finally, the video shows him carrying a suitcase containing the headless torso out to the trash. The killing of Lin shocked Canadians and grabbed headlines around the world. Magnotta was the subject of an international manhunt. He was arrested in an Internet cafe in Berlin, where he was reading about himself.
