“Craigslist Killer Philip Markoff Found Dead in Boston Jail of Apparent Suicide


CRAIGSLIST Killer takes cowards wau out and commits suicide …

Philip Markoff, the accused “CraigsList” killer was found dead in his jail cell over the weekend with a bag over his head in an apparent suicide. Markoff was charged with the  first degree murder of Julissa Brisman and the armed robbery of 29 year old Las Vegas woman named Trisha Leffler, both occurring in Boston, MA hotels.

Accused “Craigslist Killer” Philip Markoff was found dead at Nashua Street Jail yesterday morning, a plastic bag tied over his head, in an apparent suicide, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said today.

Another law-enforcement official said he had been found with a cut artery.

Markoff, 24, was alone in his cell when jail officials discovered his body one day after what would have been the one year anniversary of his wedding.

Previously, it was reported at Blink on Crime that Philip Markoff had tried to hang himself with his shoe laces back in April 2009.

 Markoff, the “Craigslist” killer was supposed to go on trial for the murder of Julissa Brisman in March 2010. However, the” Craigs List COWARD” took the coward’s way out and has denied the family of Julissa Brisman to confront him in a court of law and provide justice to this killer.

“The family of Julissa Brisman is shocked and dismayed by the news of Phillip Markoff’s suicide,” according to a statement released by Djuna Perkins, the family’s Boston-based lawyer. “Their grief for Julissa is as fresh today as the day over a year ago when Markoff took Julissa away from them. The long-awaited criminal prosecution was their only opportunity to confront him, and now he has taken that away as well.”

However, the family of Markoff’s former fianceé sadened they were saddened. Really? Your almost murderous son-in-law kills an innocent girl and takes his life and you are saddened by his suicide? Good riddance to bad rubbish!

“We are saddened by it,” said Jim McAllister, father of Markoff’s former fianceé, Megan, who is in medical school in the Caribbean. “We’re trying to get our heads on straight.”

      Megan McAllister was blindsided by this murderer and appeared to be completely ignorant after he was arrested for the murder. Funny though, after one visit in jail how she broke the engagement.

      As the McAllister family to continues acting surprised and shocked, most here in Mass are not unhappy with the news. In addition to saving the taxpayers hundreds of thousands for a costly trial, it is somewhat comforting to know this narcissist took the cowards way out. Suitable, IMO.

      Many years ago I tried to commit suicide by placing a plastic bag over my head and then tying the end around my neck. Gasping for breath the bag was pulled off by me. It was tried a few times and resulted in failure. After speaking to others who have tried suicide by the same method I am certain that it is impossible to commit suicide by placing a plastic bag over ones head. If Markoff was found dead in that position he was murdered.
      SM: Sorry to hear that yiu tried to commit suicide, but I beg to differ, it is possible in doing it that way.
