The Miami Police Department is the latest force
searching for ties between Luka Rocco Magnotta and an unsolved
homicide, as law-enforcement agencies across the continent take a
closer look at the distinct Montreal killing.
Magnotta, arrested in Berlin following an international manhunt,
is the prime suspect in the death and dismemberment of 33-year-old
Concordia University student Jun Lin.
While there is no evidence to connect Magnotta to any such crime
elsewhere, the brutality of his alleged modus operandi and his
extensive international travels have caught the attention of
investigators in several jurisdictions.
The latest is a veteran Miami homicide detective, whose
department has been trying to solve a three-year-old cold case that
shares similarities to the Montreal slaying.
Sgt. Confessor Gonzalez plans to contact Montreal police to
explore possible links between Magnotta and the mysterious, 2009
death and dismemberment of Guatemalan national Omar Laparra.

We know what the euro cup means for fans but what about businesses playing host to rabid soccer lovers?
It means cash in their pockets as restaurants and bars are at capacity for games, not just inside but on their patios as well. Places are so packed, that onlookers just stand on the street, peering through windows to catch a glimpse of the televisions showing the tournament inside.
Those stragglers tend to want to munch on something during breaks. Athens Pastries on the Danforth get a rush before, during and after games, but worker Christina says the stress is worth it because of the cash flow.
Some of the stores selling merchandise are afraid they will lose money, however. Peter of Greek City says he's may not turn a major profit because of people selling counterfeit jerseys out of their trunks. He says the only thing that really flies off ...
