This is one we will all be following for a while unfortunately. In the video below, the comments from his attorney. The contents found in his apartment don’t sound good either. BD
Boston police arrested Boston University medical student Philip Markoff, yesterday in the slaying of a New York woman at a luxury Back Bay hotel last week and an earlier attack on another woman. Both victims had advertised personal services on Craigslist. The second-year medical student was charged with fatally shooting 26-year-old Julissa Brisman April 14 at the Marriott Copley Hotel and with the armed robbery and kidnapping of a prostitute who was tied up at the Westin Copley in the Back Bay on April 10. Ellen Berlin, chief spokeswoman for the Boston University School of Medicine, said Markoff has been suspended because of the criminal charges.
A search of his apartment yielded a firearm, restraints, and duct tape, and other items that authorities were not prepared to disclose, Conley said.
