Cyber Manhunt [electronic resource]

Eighteen months after Chinese student Lin Jun was brutally killed and dismembered, a group of Internet users attempted to track down Luka Rocco Magnotta, whom they also linked to online videos showing kittens being slowly suffocated. In this program, we meet these trackers and witness a re-enactment of their Magnotta investigation. See how they carefully studied videos to determine that the first kittens had been killed in Toronto, and how Magnotta had put the trackers back on his tail. They believe that if police had taken their fears and investigation more seriously, Lin Jun might still be alive today. In a series of exclusive interviews, these cyber vigilantes tell the story of their manhunt, drawing us into the twisted world of the murderer they were after.
