The family of his victim cried out in despair that the Craigslist killer killed himself before his trial which might have shed some light on their daughter’s last minutes. But I believe he was too self centered to ever discuss that topic.
However, he did manage one last parting shot. According to an unnamed prison guard, he wrote his former flame’s name in his own blood upon the wall. ” Megan”.
It is chilling to think of his arrogance. I am going to control everything including the thoughts of my ex girlfriend.
At one point he did have a pen in his cell. In fact, he used it to fashion a crude knife and slashed his leg vein
He could have written Megan a heart felt note goodbye if he really wanted to express his grief and sorrow.
He could have apologized to the victim’s family and revealed to them the facts of their daughter’s last day.
He could have asked the world outside to pray for his soul.
But he didn’t. he decided to go out with a sick perverted bang and torment the woman he loved.
He wrote his name in blood upon the wall as if to say, ” Why did you abandon me?” and then he put a plastic bag over his head after swallowing a wad of toilet tissue and suffocated himself.
A nice last memory for his family who did nothing but love him. You sick sick man.
Just to recap for those of you who do not know the history of this terrible saga. It starred three little girls who were not exactly ” Charlies Angels” but who did not deserve to be treated this way, and a promising professional who was ruled by his dark side. Markoff took to placing adds in the ” Exotic Services” section of Craigslist and then terrorizing the models who answered them.
But one day it all went wrong and he killed one girl Julia Brisman who resisted him. Here’s an exert from my last post.
“Notorious Killer was a Young Med Student and Gambler, Jailed After Shooting a ” Craigslist” Model.”
…..The story which fascinated the country and had so many people shaking their heads in disbelief has now come to a startling end: The saga of the young Craigslist killer is over as he hung himself early Sunday morning in his cell. It would have been the day of his first anniversary with the lovely woman who adored and trusted him…. That was before his true nature came to light and the wedding was called off days after his June arrest….
I guess today looking in the mirror he saw a monster and realized all the terrible things he had done to destroy several families and his own life. Then it was over for him . Quickly and quietly the aspiring doctor offed himself. “
According to the AP news:
…..The Suffolk County district attorney says in an e-mail all evidence indicates 24-year-old Philip Markoff killed himself. Markoff was found unresponsive in his cell at the Nashua Street Jail on Sunday morning. He was declared dead at about 10:15 a.m.
