Mother of 'Canadian Psycho' victim becomes Christian

The mother of a Chinese student murdered and dismembered in Canada announced that she has converted to Christianity and was recently baptized in the wake of the gruesome case.
Occasional porn actor and escort Luka Rocco Magnotta is believed to have used an ice pick to stab Lin in late May before carving up his body, sexually abusing the corpse, filming the act and posting the video online.
"Last Sunday, I decided to get baptized," Lin's mother Du Zhigui said in emotional remarks at a religious service in a Montreal church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada, an evangelical organization that includes 400 congregations and 120,000 members around the country.
In her speech on Saturday, occasionally interspersed by sobs, she said the pastor of the church, Philip Cherng, approached her when she first came to Canada upon news of her son's killing, adding "the voice of God comforted me."
Du, who had her first contact with Christianity in Taiwan seven years ago, told the audience of roughly 100 people that she still felt "much grief," according to a French translation of her Chinese comments.
