Convicted killer Luka Magnotta is seeking a single, white "emotionally stable" male for a long-term committed relationship.

Magnotta, who brutally murdered and dismembered student Lin Jun in 2012, has joined prison dating site Canadian Inmates Connect in search of his "Prince Charming," the site announced Monday on Twitter.

"Seeking single white male, 28 [to] 38 years of age, white, and in shape," the 33-year-old writes in his dating profile. "One who is loyal, preferably educated, financially and emotionally stable for a long-term committed relationship.


"If you think you could be my prince charming, send me a detailed letter with at least [two] photos," Magnotta writes. "Only those I deem compatible will receive a response. Serious inquiries only please. All unsolicited mail will be discarded."

On his profile, the former porn actor and sex worker displays photos of himself in a white popped-collar shirt. His profile does not disclose what crime he was convicted of.

In May 2012, Magnotta killed and dismembered Jun. Police said it wasn't a random act and the two men knew each other.

Magnotta posted a video of the murder online called "1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick," showing Jun being tortured, stabbed with an ice pick, and dismembered.

He then mailed Jun's body parts to government offices in Ottawa and schools in Vancouver. Jun's head was later found in a Montreal park.

Jun, 33, was a computer engineering student at Concordia University. His friends described him as quiet and hard-working.

At trial, Magnotta pleaded not guilty, claiming he was in a psychotic state at the time of the murder and was not criminally responsible. He did not dispute that he killed Jun.

At his trial, five mental health experts testified that he had borderline personality disorder or borderline traits.

Last December, a 12-member jury found him guilty of murdering Jun.

Before the grisly murder, Magnotta was suspected of killing kittens and posting videos of their deaths online, an animal rights group told CBC's the Fifth Estate.

The videos showed someone feeding a kitten to a python, drowning a kitten in a bathtub, and placing two kittens in a plastic bag and vacuuming the air out.

Magnotta is expected to be released in 2037, his bio states. He's currently serving a mandatory 25-year life sentence for murder and is not eligible for parole.

Canadian Inmates Connect is a website for inmates in search of pen pals, the site states.
