The Copley Killer Drama has come to an end. It has been a wild ride since 2009, with Pineappleope bringing you second to second details of the long an arduous journey…
The former medical student accused of killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist used his medical training to take the easy way out and killed himself at the Boston jail where he was awaiting trial.
Philip Markoff, 24, a former Boston University student, pleaded not guilty in the fatal shooting of Julissa Brisman, of New York City, and the armed robbery of a Las Vegas woman. Both crimes happened at Boston hotels within the span of four days in April 2009. Rhode Island prosecutors also accused him of attacking a hot stripper that week.
Law enforcement sources told Pineappleope.com that Markoff used his “medical training” to cut his life short, stabbing himself in major arteries in the leg and neck with a pen (ball-point) before putting a plastic bag over his head.
Jail officials found Markoff unresponsive in his cell Sunday morning in the Nashua Street Jail, the Suffolk County district attorney’s office said in a statement Sunday, and he was pronounced completely dead at about 10:15 a.m.
“Using a pen to commit suicide was unexpected since for the most part Markoff was notoriously an internet user.” – Jake Couture, Nashua Street Jail Guard, 3rd Shift
