Head found in Montreal park belongs to Jun Lin

Montreal authorities have confirmed that a severed human head found in a city park over the weekend belongs to murdered Chinese student Jun Lin.

A tip led homicide investigators on Sunday to Angrignon Park, a vast green space in Montreal's south western region, where they found what appeared to be a human head, near a small lake.

Forensic testing on the remains concludes that "what was found is actually related to the 11th homicide on our territory — that is, the Magnotta case," said Montreal Const. Anie Lemieux.

Toronto-area native Luka Magnotta has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other alleged offences in Lin's death.

Lin was a Chinese national and Canadian resident who was a student at Montreal's Concordia University until he disappeared in late May.

His torso was found shortly after in a Montreal trash pile, while other body parts were shipped to the offices of Canadian federal political parties and Vancouver schools.

Lin's head remained missing until Sunday's grisly discovery. more
