Authorities have said that Markoff shot Brisman, who was visiting Boston from New York, three times with a handgun on April 14, 2009 after they struggled in the doorway of her room on the 20th floor of the Marriott Copley in Boston. A bullet pierced her heart. Prosecutors said Markoff also battered her head.(SOURCE)

Four days earlier, Markoff allegedly bound and robbed a Las Vegas hooker at the Westin Hotel. And on April 16, 2009, police say he attacked and robbed an exotic dancer at a hotel room in Warwick, R.I. All three victims posted erotic advertisements on the online networking site Craigslist.

Police arrested Markoff, who was living in Quincy, on April 20, 2009 after stopping him on Interstate 93 in Walpole. Markoff told police he was headed to the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. His fiancee, Megan McAllister, also was in the car.(SOURCE)

Philip Markoff, was a Boston University medical student who reportedly was a good student,but had a tendency to be misogynistic,arrogant and somewhat spoiled.

Steve Tompkins, the chief of external affairs at the Suffolk County, Mass., Sheriff’s Department said Markoff  cut his wrists and then tied something tightly around his neck before he went to sleep Saturday night.(SOURCE)

Suspicions arose when Phillip did not show up for breakfast in the morning.

Medical examiners have stated that given the fact that Phillip was a medical student, he knew how to effectively kill himself,and that it looked intentional.(CNN)

Philip Markoff was declared dead by emergency medical workers at about 10:15 Sunday morning.

“Sad to say, it’s very true. It’s shocking and very saddening,” Markoff’s defense attorney John Salsberg said to the gathering press.(SOURCE)

I doubt if the citizens of Boston are very sad to see this rapist and killer take himself out.One less predator that we have to worry about…

He pleaded not guilty to the murder and robbery. Markoff was scheduled to stand trial in March 2011.

  1. How ever so convenient for the sheriff that this murderer committed suicide. Many times in situations like this, the suicide was later determined not to be a suicide at all,but in this case it is obvious that he killed himself because he is guilty.
    He could not live with his conscience eating away at him.I am glad he did the right thing.

  2. He took the cowards way out, but that goes along with his personality disorder.

    • If the speculation is accurate, than the coward’s way out is to kill yourself while in custody of the sheriff’s department according to you. I’ll just wait for the facts to come for all the details but I agree with you that he’s a coward for killing himself.
      What an imbecile.

      • Well, according to your own word,he’s an imbecile for allowing himself to be killed by the sherriff,because he was not able to fight them off!His lack of knowledge of fighting, makes him become a taxpayers problem for the idiotic things he did anyway…”
        Those are your own words,when you dissed the death of Mitrice Richardson last night on my blog,who was also murdered by the sherriffs.
        I figured you had no legitimate or consistent point of view,you are just a hater!That’s why I edited your ridiculously childish and stupidly inappropriate rants.You hate Nancy Grace because you are just like her…an idiot!
        Why are you so inconsistent here…does it have something to do with the fact that this murderer is white and Mitrice is black?You are an I thought,just poping off…probably atea bagger,or off your meds.
        Check you words…you have no credibility at all whatsoever.
        The world is better off now that this coward killed himself!
        Consider yourself Pwned, and you better keep up with that medication…you are truly an idiot.

  3. I just have to agree with you that I am inconsistent idiot, and leave it at that.I just been sucking D*cks all day,so I just prefer the factual side of things before I swallow,is as much as they support my agenda, and justice is usually based upon proven facts, not by my own speculations and denials. Still though, I love the topic you cover on your blogs. Have a great day. 🙂
