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)
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)
