More body parts found in Canada, Vancouver

Packages with human remains have been found at two Vancouver schools, in what could be the latest twist in the case of a Canadian porn actor suspected of murdering and dismembering his lover.

The packages contained a human hand and foot, Canadian police said.

But they declined to confirm whether the incident was linked to suspect Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Mr Magnotta is suspected of killing Chinese student Jun Lin, 33, in Montreal, and posting severed body parts to political parties in Canada.

Vancouver Deputy Police Chief Warren Lemcke said the incidents could not yet be linked to anything.

Vancouver School Board spokesman Kurt Heinrich said it was a traumatic situation for all involved.
