The Craigslist killer case
John Haeger/Oneida Daily Dispatch
On August 15, 2010, Markoff committed suicide at Nashua Street Jail in Boston, where he was being held awaiting trial in the 2009 slaying of Julissa Brisman, according to a spokesman for the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office. Brisman, a 25-year-old masseuse, advertised on Craigslist, leading the media to dub this case the "Craigslist killing."
