The list of craigslist killers keeps growing at an alarming rate. This time three more names have been added to that list.
In Memphis, Tennessee, 37-year-old Larry Wilkins was trying to sell his 2006 Mustang on craigslist. Police say he met up with some potential buyers shortly before Midnight on March 9th. Instead of selling his car Wilkins was shot and killed and his car stolen. Those charged in his murder are Brandon Vance, 21, Martiness Henderson, 17, and Walter Collins, 17.
One day when the website is exactly the way I want it I’ll have list of all the craigslist killers and victims but if I had to take a guess I’d say we’re in the dozens of killers by now.
