Needless to say, authorities think the man is Markoff. Four days before Brisman's killing, Markoff is accused of robbing a 29-year-old woman at gunpoint at a Westin Hotel in Boston. Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley apparently thinks the two crimes are related.
Apparently the first victim also advertised similar services on Craigslist.
Craigslist CEO is Jim Buckmaster. Buckmaster informed the press that Craigslist would evaluate the incident to see if additional safety measures are in order. Markoff is to be considered innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.
