Luka Magnotta documentary withdrawn from Montreal film festival
MONTREAL – A documentary on accused killer Luka Magnotta has been pulled from this weekend’s Montreal World Film Festival.
There are concerns it could violate a publication ban at Magnotta’s trial, which starts September 8th in Montreal.
The movie — called “Sex, Fame and Murder: The Luka Magnotta Story” — has also been dropped from a French-language T-V documentary channel.
It apparently contains interviews with people involved in the investigation.
