A Canadian man sentenced to life in prison for killing and dismembering his Chinese lover and mailing his body parts to schools and political parties has joined a matchmaking website for inmates.

Luka Magnotta’s profile was posted on Canadian Inmates Connect, a website that tries to hook up lonesome convicts – some behind bars for violent offences like first-degree murder – with potential companions on the outside.

The profile features two photos of the former stripper and prostitute, who was convicted in December of first-degree murder for the killing and dismemberment of university student Jun Lin in Montreal.

In both images, Magnotta is wearing an unbuttoned white dress shirt.

Magnotta is serving a life sentence with possible parole after 25 years.

The case shocked Canadians and gained international notoriety when body parts arrived at the offices of Canada’s biggest political parties, and a video appeared online that prosecutors said showed Magnotta stabbing and having sex with the dismembered corpse.

In May 2012, a package containing a severed foot was found at the headquarters of Canada’s ruling Conservative Party. The same day, a hand was discovered at a postal facility in a package addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada.

Mr Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase at a rubbish dump outside Magnotta’s apartment building in Montreal. About a week later, the missing foot and hand were found, mailed to two schools in Vancouver.

Magnotta was arrested in Berlin after an international manhunt.
