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 TV documentary channel.
    
It apparently contains interviews with people involved in the investigation.
    
Magnotta is accused of killing and dismembering Chinese exchange student Jun Lin in May, 2012.
    
He was arrested in Germany a month later during a global manhunt that made international headlines.

    Finally, saner heads prevail. Who would watch this other than a jury and they are "forced" to. I hope whoever made this documentary didn't use my tax dollars to do it.
