A Canadian porn actor wanted in a case where body parts from a dismembered corpse were mailed to political party offices might have fled North America, police have said.

Montreal Police Cmdr Ian Lafreniere said police believe Luka Rocco Magnotta fled based on evidence they found at his apartment, and on a blog he once wrote about how to disappear.

The 29-year-old Magnotta has been added to Interpol's wanted list.

We believe he may be in a foreign country. He left a letter on a website mentioning how to disappear for good, and secondly, our investigation brought us some details that might let us think that he could be away from the country.

– Montreal Police Cmdr Ian Lafreniere

Mr Lafreniere also said police have been trying to take down an online video that they believe shows Magnotta committing the murder. The video shows a man stabbing another man with an ice pick while the victim lies naked and tied up.

The first man later reveals he has cut the other man's throat. He also dismembers the corpse.

Mr Lafreniere said they were able to take down the video last night but that it keeps reappearing online.

"It's horrible. I can't believe people take advantage of watching this," he said.

The case began on Tuesday when police found a man's torso in a suitcase behind Magnotta's apartment and a severed foot was found in a package mailed to the Conservative Party headquarters in Ottawa. A hand was found in a separate package at a postal facility, addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada.

Other body parts remain missing, and Lafreniere said police are investigating the possibility that other body parts might have been mailed.

Police discovered the severed foot on Tuesday after Jenni Bryne, a top political adviser to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, opened a bloodstained box at Conservative party headquarters.
