For the first time, we're hearing from the family of the man Luka Magnotta is accused of murdering and dismembering.
The following is a letter that the family of Jun Lin provided to CTV News on June 11, 2012. In the letter, Lin's family talks about their son's life, and his unimaginable death.
English translation provided by Ottawa field producer Philip Ling.
Since the news of Jun Lin's tragic death was made public, faced with this hard-to-imagine death blow, we were physically and psychologically at a breaking point.
Fortunately, we have received strong support, including from all levels of the Chinese and Canadian governments, relevant embassies and consulates, Montreal Police Service, and Concordia University. It allowed us to complete the necessary procedures in the shortest time, and we successfully arrived in Montreal on the evening of June 5. The entire itinerary was arranged with careful consideration for us and for that, we express our deepest gratitude.
Within a few days after we arrived -- under the leadership and organization of the Chinese Consulate in Montreal, the Montreal Police Service, Concordia University and the City of Montreal -- government officials met with us and expressed their sympathies. We learned that there were both Chinese and Canadian officials that worked tirelessly day and night on this case.
The Concordia Chinese Student Association and Jun Lin’s good friends also provided us with a lot of help.
At the same time, we received strong and enthusiastic support, including from the Chinese community -- many people that we don’t even know lent a helping hand for his funeral and after-death arrangements, with such great kindness and care, we are deeply touched.
Jun Lin grew up believing in Buddhism; He attached importance to the idiom that "one hour today is worth two tomorrow", and to always do good for others. He is a child that was extremely kind-hearted and respectful/obedient to his parents . His consideration for his parents, his care for his sister is still echoing in our ears.
The head of Concordia University Computer Engineering department told us that Jun Lin was a very exceptional student.
His boss said he was a model employee.
His friends say he was very optimistic, enterprising, liked to make friends, help others, and always looked on the bright side.
Jun Lin is the pride of our entire family.
This horrific tragedy has had a destructive blow to our family. But it inspired a powerful outpouring of sympathy and charity in people, bringing together all the good people in society through which we saw real sincerity and goodness, allowing us to be deeply moved and gratified in our time of deep sorrow.
It’s particularly worth mentioning that to commemorate Lin Jun, Concordia University has established the Lin Jun scholarship to help Chinese students exemplifying Lin Jun’s spirit of helpfulness and enterprise/proactiveness -- our entire family, relatives and friends are gratified/pleased.
Concordia University has also established a special fund -- bringing together the Chinese Students Association and other interested parties -- to provide assistance to our family.
Immediately after the scholarship and special fund was established, they received generous contributions from many good-willed people in the community. For this, we are grateful.
In addition, we're calling for the extradition of the murderer back to Canada as soon as possible, bringing justice and fairness to heal the wounds brought about to our family, the Chinese community and society as a whole.
At the same time as we are mourning Jun Lin, please remember his kindness, hard work and passion for life. Thank you!
