PHILIP MARKOFF, CRAIGLIST KILLER, A FUTURE DOCTOR TURNED KILLER?

Luckily for mankind, he showed the dark-stuff he is made of early enough, before the state of Massachusetts could license him, wherein he would have "legally" carried out his perversion under the guise of "lost" patients? His name, Philip Markoff and he killed a masseuse, Julissa Brisman of New York? A 2007 graduate of State University of New York at Albany, Philip was just 23 years old and already in medical school, second year at Boston University?

Ironically, before his dark-side took over his senses and motors, Philip was planning a wedding this summer to his fiancee, whom he was with when the police arrested him? Icheoku says what an irony of life that a young man planning to marry a young woman, turned out to be a killer of another young woman?
His dark-side reveals a serial criminal who targeted women who were offering erotic services through Craigslist; this is how he became known as "The Craigslist Killer"! One of these women, he has now been accused of killing and also suspected of robbing and tying up another? According to the District Attorney, "This was a brutal, vicious crime — savage, and it shows Philip Markoff is a man who is willing to take advantage of women, to hurt them, to beat them, to rob them, he probably thought he was going to get away with it. He thought he was too smart for us."
Philip Markoff was charged with murder, kidnapping and armed robbery in the killing of Julissa Brisman, 26, of New York City, who was found dead April 14, 2009 in a Boston hotel; after being bashed in the head and shot three times at close range, including once through the heart? A semiautomatic gun, duct tape and other restraints were recovered as evidence from his apartment which he shared with his fiancee in Quincy, about 10 miles south of Boston?

It would appear that Philip is from a well-heeled off family; his grandfather is a lawyer and he went straight to medical school from university? According to one shocked neighbour, "He was smart. He carried himself well. He was clean, a good-looking guy, he seemed like the type that would have it all. It doesn't make sense." Icheoku says, William Shakespeare is once again right on the money, as Philip Markoff has once again, proved that there is no reading of the mind's construction by the face! A caveat however, provided he did it! Is that understood?
