1. Premise

The limited series follows a group of internet sleuths who launched a manhunt for Luka Magnotta, after he gained international notoriety in 2010 for sharing a graphic video online of himself killing two kittens. Magnotta was later convicted for murdering Chinese international student Jun Lin in grisly circumstances.

                                     

2. Early investigation

The series started with Deanna Thompson, a data analyst for a casino in Las Vegas, and John Green, from Los Angeles. In 2010, a viral video called 1 boy 2 kittens was posted on Facebook. The name is derived from the snuff video titled 3 guys, 1 hammer committed by Dnepropetrovsk maniacs in 2007. The viral video shows a man playing with two kittens before he puts them in a very tight vacuum seal bag and vacuums out the air, suffocating the kittens. Thompson and Green subsequently started a Facebook group to build evidence and find the perpetrator. The group worked together to examine the details of the video, including the objects in the room, to help solve the mystery.
