In letters to a friend obtained by the Toronto Sun back in 2015, he said: ‘Our doors are open 90% of the time so for me I feel like I’m in a university setting,’ adding that he loved having pizza parties and sunbathing.

Magnotta’s ex-girlfriend Barbie Swallows, told DailyMail.com she was pleased he was no longer living it up, saying: ‘He knows the difference between right and wrong, he deliberately murdered an innocent victim and those sweet little kittens.

‘I hope the coronavirus finds him in prison, he has no remorse for what he did and only cares about himself.’

The former escort was jailed for murdering and chopping up his boyfriend Lin in June 2012 and then mailing his body parts to schools and political parties. He also shockingly filmed himself eating his victim.

The killer, who claims he was framed for the murder by a mysterious character named ‘Manny’, is locked up with a host of twisted criminals at the facility that has 243 cells in three blocks, 30 of which are reserved for long-term inmates.

In an open letter earlier this month, government medical professionals claimed Canada’s jails and prisons don’t meet physical distancing guidelines for coronavirus and they want as many inmates as possible to be released.

‘Conditions are crowded, prisoners share cells, they must be frisked and handcuffed by officers, line up daily for medication, share common spaces and dining halls, and use the same telephones and washrooms’, it says.

‘They also lack access to some of the critical supplies people in the community are using to keep themselves safe, such as hand sanitizer, cleaning products and sometimes soap.’

However, the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers, which represents federal prison guards, hit back saying releasing prisoners would not solve the potential spread of COVID-19 and would only increase the risk to Canadians.

Back in 2017,  it was reported Magnotta had found love behind bars and was getting married.  

Magnotta joined Canadian Inmates Connect Inc., a dating forum that tries to set up lonesome jailbirds, in June 2015, and had his profile removed just one month later after he said he found his ‘prince charming’.

Magnotta submitted the profile with the help of a friend who sent the application via snail mail to the dating website’s founder Melissa Fazzina.

The profile, which featured two photos of Magnotta in an unbuttoned white shirt, was then posted online with the hopes of attracting potential companions on the outside.

Magnotta described himself as a single white male who was seeking ‘single white male, 28-38 years of age, white and in shape.’

He further specified: ‘One who is loyal, preferably educated, financially and emotionally stable for a long term committed relationship.

‘If you think you could be my prince charming, send me a detailed letter with at least two photos. Only those I deep compatible will receive a response. Serious inquiries only please. All unsolicited mail will be discarded.’
