PARIS -- A state prosecutor's office says police are investigating two claimed sightings in the French capital of a Canadian porn actor wanted in connection with a grisly murder in Montreal.

Luka Rocco Magnotta is wanted by authorities in Canada on first-degree murder and other charges. He is suspected of killing a man he dated, videoing the attack, and then mailing his dismembered body parts.

Interpol has placed Magnotta on the equivalent of its most-wanted list.

An official in the Paris office, speaking on condition of anonymity because of office policy, said Sunday that police were looking into the alleged sightings in northwest Paris but had no additional details.

Police believe the 29-year-old fled to France on May 26. Police have identified the victim as 33-year-old Chinese university student Jun Lin.
