The Aunt of the Cannibal Killer had disclosed that the Cannibal disturbed child hood and he was a time bomb willing to explode.
Note that he was born when his parents(?) were teenagers and got separated.
Just more than children, if people , urged by sex get married(!) and separate, this will be the result.
Those who advocate free sex and granting social recognition to people at an early age must pause.
Youngsters Eric Newman smiles innocently into the camera for his school yearbook picture.
Back then, in 1993, he was a painfully shy 11-year-old who retreated into a fantasy world to forget his nightmarish home life.
In a bid to impress his disbelieving classmates, he spun incredibly outlandish tales – something he continued to do long after leaving school.
As an adult, he’d lie about being the lover of Canada’s most notorious female killer.
Today, however, Eric stands accused of something which truly defies belief.
For he grew up to become Luka Magnotta, the 29-year-old arrested over a cannibal slaying.
According to police, he killed and mutilated gay lover Lin Jun, then ate his flesh with a knife and fork. He also filmed it all and later posted the sick video online.
The victim’s hands and feet were even posted to politicians and schools in his native Canada.
After a massive worldwide manhunt, he was finally arrested in a Berlin internet cafe on Monday.
According to reports, he was reading online accounts of his alleged crimes at the time.
His upbringing was certainly brutal – and at least one of his relatives always suspected there was something seriously wrong.
An aunt, who asked not to be identified, said: “He is a nut job – he was a time bomb waiting to explode.”
His parents – Anna Yourkin and Donald Newman – were just teenagers when he was born and they split up soon after.
Eric was then brought up mainly by his domineering granny Phyllis Yourkin. Beatings were common and Eric – the eldest of three – took the brunt of his grandmother’s temper.
But the few classmates who remember him say they used to laugh at the tall tales he told.
The spotty, blue-eyed boy even tried to make Eric, his old-fashioned first name, sound more glamorous.
He claimed his mother had named him after Hollywood star Julia Roberts’ actor brother Eric.
It was a strange claim – because Julia and Eric’s careers had not taken off when he was born.
When caught out by his lies, there were flashes of violent temper – at 12 he hurled a chair at a teacher.
As he entered his teens he had overly effeminate mannerisms – and boasted about his sexual conquests.
Around the same time, he left Toronto and moved with his granny in Lindsay, Ontario
