The dismembered victim whose severed foot was sent out to the Canadian Conservative Party was a foreign exchange student from China, CBC reports.Lin Jun, a student at Concordia University in Montreal, was reported missing the same day that his foot and hand were mailed out.

He was also apparently in a sexual relationship with his alleged killer, Luka Rocco Magnotta, according to CBC.

Police say the murder occurred around four days before the body parts were discovered, The Montreal Gazette reports.

The hunt for Magnotta has been on ever since a suitcase with Jun’s remains was found outside Magnotta’s Montreal apartment.

Police currently believe Magnotta left Canada a day after the murder and is currently in France, CBC reports.
