MONTREAL — Montreal police have confirmed that the human remains found Sunday in a park belong to Jun Lin.
Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase in late May, while other body parts were mailed to offices of political parties and to two schools.
Police have said the only missing body part was Lin’s head.
A police spokeswoman said detectives were notified Wednesday that the remains found in Angrignon Park belong to Lin.
“Major-crimes squad investigators just got confirmation,” Const. Anie Lemieux said.
She said Lin’s family was informed of the match.
Luka Rocco Magnotta has been charged with first-degree murder in Lin’s death.
Magnotta has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court next year.
