"Seeking single white male, 28-38 years of age, white and in shape.One who is loyal, preferably educated, financially and emotionally stable for a long-term committed relationship." At first glance, this reads just like any other run of the mill online dating profile, that is, if these weren't the written words of infamous Canadian cannibal killer Luka Magnotta.
The now 34-year-old is also one of more than 160 criminals in Canada to have signed up and created a profile on Canadian Inmates Connect Inc., a matchmaking website for inmates.The unique dating service came under fire last year when Magnotta's profile popped up online, with many criticising those behind the site for even allowing him to apply.But Melissa Fazzina, who started up Canadian Inmates Connect Inc.nearly six years ago, says she doesn't discriminate between criminals and none are barred from registering, no matter how heinous their crimes.Some are behind bars for violent offences like first-degree murder, while others are in for armed robbery, aggravated assault or drug trafficking."There are no rules for that, especially legally," Ms Fazzina told au.
"I can't say that only certain inmates can join the website, it doesn't matter what they're in for.They should all be given a second chance." Magnotta, one of the most notorious killers in recent Canadian history, was eventually removed from the site after he reportedly "found what he was looking for".Ms Fazzina, a 39-year-old healthcare worker from Toronto, explains she originally started the website as a way to pair male and female inmates with pen pals - both platonic and romantic - on the outside."I thought, 'this is a neat concept', I did some research, saw that there wasn't anything like this in our country," she explained."I thought it would be a good little side business to make some extra money."At first I just reached out to a few federal inmates that I did know in the system, I asked them if it was a good idea, I got some advice on how to proceed, like how to get word out there in the system." Today, Ms Fazzina says she is in contact with hundreds of people around the world - "from Australia, from France, from Saudi Arabia" - all keen to strike up a penpal friendship with an inmate, and she described her work as "life changing". "I've gotten to know them [the inmates] over the years, they were real people before they went into prison, and they're going to be real people after they leave," she said.
