Twins Sia and Shane Barbi Asked Ron Jeremy to Help in Sting to Nab Cannibal Luka Magnotta?
Playboy twins Sia and Shane Barbi asked male porn star legend Ron Jeremy to participate in an undercover sting to nab alleged cannibal Luka Magnotta in a story that reads like a late night B-movie plot.
However, the wild plot wasn't for a film, Jeremy says it happened in real life and it was all cooked up by an animal rights group who wanted to get Luka Magnotta off the streets after his alleged abuse of animals.
One year before Magnotta became the notorious alleged cannibal who police accuse of killing his gay lover and then eating him, Jeremy says the Barbi twins brought him a plan from an animal-rights group that would have Ron playing a crucial role.
Jeremy said he was asked to lure Magnotta, a small-time Canadian porn actor, to Los Angeles with a phony job offer to appear in an X-rated flick.
The plan was to have Jeremy promise to meet with Magnotta in LA, then when the gay porn actor arrived to work with the legendary adult films director, security and enforcement officials from the animal-rights advocates group Rescue Ink would grab Magnotta and detain him and then turn him over to authorities.
The animals rights group was furious with Magnotta as he is alleged to have been the person behind a series of videos of animal cruelty involving cats which were posted to YouTube beginning in 2010.
But after he thought about the plot and possible danger - Jeremy developed cold feet.
"That's a little bit out of my league, don't you think?" Jeremy told The Canadian Press in a phone interview about the January 2011 proposal.
"It's like an episode from some TV show. The (guy) comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground.
"That's good for the movies. That doesn't work in real life."
Magnotta has been arrested, but it was after police say he killed and dismembered a man.
A year after the plot to catch him by the animal activists failed to develop, police say he went on to kill his gay Chinese lover.
Magnotta became a murder suspect in the gruesome death of Montreal student Jun Lin, and he allegedly videotaped the murder of his lover and also mailed his body parts to Canadian officials.
The dead man's torso was found in a suitcase behind Magnotta's apartment.
Police say the murder sent the actor on the run, but he was nabbed in Berlin while trying to flee authorities and returned to the scene of the alleged crime and faces a bevy of charges in Canada.
