‘Craigslist Killer’ Philip Markoff Wrote Ex-Fiancee’s Name in Blood as He Killed Himself:
We now know how Philip Markoff was able to take the coward’s way out and boy did he have a flair for the dramatic.
Markoff took a pen that was filed down to a slashing tool and cut major arteries in his arms and legs. I guess that Grey’s Anatomy book was used for something else besides hiding his gun. Anyway he also wrapped the wounds in plastic from a plastic bag. He also stuffed toilet paper down his throat and put a plastic bag over his head. Officials say he did all this in order to make sure that medical staff would be unable to revive him. It seems that he really wanted to die. I bet he even went down the road.
But sometime in the middle of all this he was able to scrawl his fiancée’s name in blood. Also he committed suicide on what would have been their one year anniversary. You know, except for the fact that he was arrested for the robbery and murder of Julissa Brisman.
All I have to say is what a bitch. Markoff that is.
Julissa Brisman’s family have expressed their disappointment in Markoff’s suicide saying that he escaped justice. Not to be disrespectful but to them I would say that I believe that justice can be served after this life. I’m sure that Markoff is currently receiving more retribution than this world could possibly inflict.
Report: ‘Craigslist Killer’ Philip Markoff commits suicide in jail:
Fox 25 in Boston is reporting that Philip Markoff committed suicide in jail at 10:20 PM local time last night.
As I’m sure most of you know Markoff was the accused killer of craigslist masseuse Julissa Brisman.
No word yet on how Markoff saved money for the tax payers of Massachusetts.
I refuse to refer to Markoff as the ‘craigslist killer’ because there were craigslist killers before him and there have been craigslist killers after him.
UPDATE: Markoff’s defense attorney has confirmed Markoff’s death.
Craigslist Killer Suspect Indicted in Rhode Island:
Prosecutors Seek DNA Sample In Craigslist Killing:
The man who has been dubbed by the media as the Craigslist killer, Philip Markoff, has been indicted in the state of Rhode Island.
If you’ll recall not only is Markoff accused of killing Boston masseuse Julissa Brisman but he’s also accused of robbing and assaulting a stripper in Warwick, RI.
Meanwhile back in Boston prosecutors have requested a DNA sample from Markoff saying they do not have one on file.
In a loud voice, Markoff pleads ‘not guilty’:
Philip Markoff, the accused killer of craigslist masseuse Julissa Brisman, was indicted on seven counts including first-degree murder. An emotionless Markoff entered a very vocal plea of not guilty.
Another detail that emerged today was that Markoff allegedly used the stolen driver’s license of a New York man to illegally purchase the gun that he used to kill Julissa Brisman. The man who the license belonged to is not believed to have any connection to the crime.
I wonder how his Facebook support group is dealing with this.
Suspected ‘Craigslist Killer’ Phillip Markoff charged with assault of stripper in Rhode Island:
Today Julissa Brisman’s accused killer, Philip Markoff, was hit with additional charges. Rhode Island authorities charged Markoff with assault and attempted robbery for the incident in Warwick where he allegedly tried to rob an exotic dancer, who advertised on craigslist, at gunpoint.
The robbery took place two days after he allegedly killed Brisman.

Basically there’s really only two worthwhile pieces of information from this article. The first is as I mentioned in the headline Philip Markoff has been taken off of suicide watch but he’s still wearing the paper clothes. The second piece of information is that Markoff told his family to forget about him because more information is going to come out. What that information may be is anyone’s guess.
However this allows me to address something. I am not going to post the more salacious and gossipy parts of this story. I personally could give a rat’s ass if his fiance is going to call off the marriage or not. I’m only interested in seeing justice served for the death of Julissa Brisman.
Court Lists Markoff As ‘Indigent’:
Craigslist killing suspect can’t afford lawyer:
Break out the tiny violin. No, not that one, get the tinier one. It seems that one Philip Markoff, the accused murderer of Julissa Brisman, can’t afford his own attorney. If I remember correctly that means that one will be provided for him.
It seems that Markoff is $130K in the hole on student loans, he receives no financial support from his parents, and he hasn’t held a job in sometime.
This kind of makes me wonder if Markoff was trying to pay his bills by gambling which ultimately led to his alleged robbery spree.
I grew up in a gambling town and one of the cardinal rules of gambling is never gamble to pay the bills. It never works out. and in this case it left someone dead.
More Charges To Come In Craigslist Case:
According to CBS News the Attorney General’s office of Rhode Island will be filing charges soon against Philip Markoff. As previously mentioned Markoff is a suspect in the armed robbery of an exotic dancer at the Holiday Inn Express in Warwick, RI. A police source previously leaked to the media that fingerprints in the hotel room match those of Markoff.
The article says that Rhode Island will also be pursuing extradition of Markoff. I hope they mean after Massachusetts gets through with him.
Gun Matches Bullets in Craigslist Murder Case:
A law enforcement official who spoke to the media on the condition of anonymity has said that the ballistics test on Philip Markoff”s gun say that it’s a preliminary match for the gun that killed Julissa Brisman. Another law enforcement official has also said that one of Markoff’s fingerprints was found at the scene of the robbery of the exotic dancer in Warwick, Rhode Island. And let’s not forget that the duct tape and zip ties matching those used on his victims were also found in Markoff’s residence.
So far this news has not effected Markoff’s support base.
Markoff supporters put up Facebook website:
Recently the site has blown up because of the murder of Julissa Brisman allegedly at the hands of one Philip Markoff.
Even though police allegedly found the gun used to kill Julissa and the panties of several other victims in Markoff’s house it hasn’t stopped people from starting a Facebook support group for Markoff.
The group, called Phil Markoff is Innocent Until Proven Guilty, says that their goal is to rally against the media who is quick to place blame, against the culture that has forgotten that people like Phil are suspects, not killers.
Again the concept from innocent until proven guilty is for courts of law. If I want to call Markoff a killer, which I think he is, then that’s mine and everyone’s right to do so.
Markoff may only be a suspect at this point but so far the evidence is pretty damning.
Also there is a another Facebook group called Phil Markoff is Innocent Until Proven Guilty…Uh…yeah…NOT!!! They sound more like my kind of people.
