Gore site owner says he hasn't heard from police about dismemberment video

The Canadian Press

The owner of an Edmonton website that carried the grisly video believed to be at the centre of the Luka Rocco Magnotta case says he hasn't heard a word from police about the matter.

There have been reports out of Montreal that police are investigating the site with an eye to laying charges.

But Mark Marek, who operates the site bestgore.com, says he took the video down the day Magnotta's name was officially released by the authorities.

He says he did it on his own and not as a result of a request by the police.

Marek says any investigation of his site is unwarranted because it was his site that brought the video to light.

Magnotta was arrested in Berlin Monday and will not challenge his extradition back to Canada on murder charges.
