'Craigslist Killer' suspect originally from Sherrill

By WKTV News

BOSTON, M.A. (WKTV / NBC NEWS) - 22-year-old Phil Markoff, the man police say is the "Craigslist Killer," is from Sherrill, N.Y.. He's now in police custody in Boston, charged with murder.

Boston Police now believe the man in the photos is 22 year-old Philip Markoff of nearby Quincy, Massachusetts. He was seen leaving a Marriot Hotel earlier this month, moments after the shooting death of Julissa Brisman. 

Brisman was the 26 year-old who had advertised her massage services online on Craisglist and is believed to have met up with Markoff that night. Police arrested Markoff Monday afternoon.

Markoff is also charged with tying up and robbing another woman at another Boston hotel four days earlier. That victim also advertised her massage services on Craigslist. 

Markoff's arrest follows the release earlier in the day of photos taken at a hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island last Thursday, shortly after the robbery of an exotic dancer who advertised on Craigslist.  Markoff is believed to be the man in those pictures, too.
