Man convicted of Craigslist murder gets life:

This past week Nathaniel Edwin Briscoe was convicted in the Austin, Texas murder of craigslist prostitute Amy Elizabeth Dickey and sentenced to life in prison. It’s a shame he didn’t get the death penalty.

Briscoe strangled Dickey using his bare hands and choking her for five minutes after ordering her services off of craigslist.

With the closing of adult/erotic services worldwide just think how many murders will be prevented. Then think how many could have been prevented if craigslist closed it down sooner or never opened one in the first place.

Trial opens in Craigslist killing:

Murder defendant was very talkative in interview with police:

I originally posted about this murder in May of 2009. At the time I suspected that there was a craigslist connection however there was no definitive information about the craigslist connection at the time but it was such a disturbing crime to me I posted about it at one of my other blogs. Here’s my post from at that time.

Crazy Joe up there is 29-year-old Nathaniel Edwin Briscoe of Austin, TX. He’s been charged in the murder of Austin call girl Amy Elizabeth Dickey, 28. Allegedly Briscoe contacted her online for her services. He paid her $150 for sex. Then it’s believed that Briscoe strangled her to death. Can’t really call him another ‘craigslist killer’ yet because it has not been released what online venue he used. He then dumped her body in a wooded area. Her body was found on Thursday and police were able to track down Briscoe through her cell phone.

As it turns out there was a craigslist connection. Briscoe allegedly knew Dickey from his job at a head shop but ordered Dickey’s services through craigslist. More than likely from the adult services section while it was still open.

But again since this happened in Texas and not in Boston or New York it’s not national news along with the other craigslist murders except two.

Again this was a murder that craigslist could have prevented if they closed the adult services section sooner.

So let’s see, consenting adults? I doubt she consented to be strangled to death. Victimless? Hardly. Would this have had happened if prostitution was legal? More than likely.

To all the gals and guys who are thinking about turning to prostitution to make some easy money please don’t. Don’t be another victim like Amy Elizabeth Dickey. The same thing could happen to you or worse.

Thanks to Annette for the tip.
