Geoffrey Portway – Attempted Child Killer Behind Bars

Geoffrey PortwayIt’s a good thing some serial killers to be are just plain lazy and dare we say it – stupid. Nothing says this more than the case of Geoffrey Portway. Geoffrey Portway was sentenced today to 27 years in prison for planning to kidnap, rape, torture, kill and consume child victims.

Portway is a British national and will be deported back to Britain once he finishes his time in prison. Portway was part of a macabre internet group who openly discussed and shared photos of child pornography, mutilation and death. It’s a good thing for local children that Portway and his idiot accomplices thought the internet would give them some privacy to do their thing; not knowing of course that they were being watched by law enforcement. This gets even dumber when you consider that Portway was employed in an IT department!

Portway had constructed a torture-style basement complete with a child-size coffin, torture devices, butchering equipment and a steel cage with restraints. It’s a good thing he was caught before he had a chance to start killing. It’s not often we get to write about killers before they do so.

Luka Rocco Magnotta’s Extradition From Germany Costs Taxpayers $375,000

Luka Rocco MagnottaCanadian taxpayers are on the hook for $375,000 or more to extradite Luka Rocco Magnotta from Germany where he was caught after a manhunt. The bulk of the cost comes in the price of the dedicated Canadian military CC-150 Polaris Airbus transport plane which brought him and his escort back to Canada – a flight that cost $15,505 per hour of operation. The remaining costs come from catering services and a hotel stay for authorities.

Luka Rocco Magnotta plead not guilty to all charges brought against him for the murder of Jun Lin. Magnotta still has his preliminary hearing scheduled for March 2013.

Magnotta on top of facing first degree murder charges, is accused of defiling Lin’s corpse, harassing Canadian PM Stephen Harper, Members of Parliament, and publishing and mailing obscene material.
