Craigslist murder suspect held without bail & a question for Dr. Vaknin


BOSTON - A Boston medical student accused of targeting women who advertised exotic services on Craigslist was ordered held without bail Tuesday on charges that he sought to rob a masseuse. Prosecutor Jennifer Hickman said in court that Brisman had been bashed in the head and shot three times at close range, including once through the heart, when she fought back. Brisman was found dead April 14 in a Boston luxury hotel.

Markoff is also charged with robbing and tying up another woman who advertised massages on Craigslist. Hickman said Markoff and a woman he allegedly robbed on April 10 also initiated contact on Craigslist and set up a meeting after midnight. The woman told investigators she met Markoff and then let him into her room at the Westin. When she shut the door and turned around, he was pointing a gun at her stomach. He bound her hands and mouth.

"The individual went though her purse, went through her wallet and took over $800" and other personal items, Hickman said.


Philip Markoff, 22, a second-year medical student at Boston University, said nothing during a brief appearance Tuesday in Boston Municipal Court where he was ordered held on charges including murder, armed robbery and kidnapping.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said authorities searching Markoff's home in Quincy found a semiautomatic weapon, restraints and duct tape — evidence he called "critical, powerful."

"This was a brutal, vicious crime — savage, and it shows Philip Markoff is a man who is willing to take advantage of women, to hurt them, to beat them, to rob them," Conley said.

'Philip is a beautiful person'
Markoff lives with his fiancee, who claims police have the wrong man. Markoff has no previous criminal record.

“He could not hurt a fly,” Megan McAllister said in an e-mail to ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “All I have to say is Philip is a beautiful person, inside and out,” she said in the e-mail read on Tuesday’s program.

McAllister said she and Markoff expect to be married in August "and share a wonderful, meaningful life together."

James Kehoe, one of Markoff’s best friends during his first two years as an undergrad at the University at Albany, described the suspect as “a great guy.”

“He was one of my best friends in my dorm,” Kehoe told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira. “He was one of the people that I felt I could really get along with. I felt like he was smart, an intellectual, nice, friendly guy.”

Kehoe said that as he thought back on the two years during which he was close friends with Markoff, he realized that his friend did not pursue relationships with women as other college men do.

“One of the things that kind of struck me about him was that he was for all intents and purposes a guy’s guy. I rarely saw him out with women,” Kehoe said. “One of the normal things people do in college is find someone of the opposite sex to connect with. That was not something he wanted to do.”

“He was smart, he carried himself well, he was clean, a good looking guy,” said Bernard, a retired electric company worker. “He seemed like the type that would have it all. It doesn’t make sense.”

Two of Markoff's neighbors told "Good Morning America" on Tuesday they were stunned by the accusations.

"I can't even put it into words, the disbelief I'm feeling right now," neighbor Jonathan Uva said. "This is a great guy, I met him a few times, saw him in the hall everyday, (he) always said, 'Hey, how you doing Jon, what's going on.' Just a total disconnect from what we're hearing in the news."

Another neighbor, Mike Dye, told the show he had Markoff over to his apartment complex for parties, including a Super Bowl party. "He seemed like he was really outgoing," Dye added.

Authorities said Markoff is originally from upstate New York. A Facebook profile matching Markoff's identity, including his photograph, lists him as a 2007 graduate of State University of New York-Albany and in the 2011 class at BU.

I was wondering, Dr. Vaknin, if the not pursuing women during college, and the manner in which he targeted, robbed and assaulted/killed his victims, are common characteristics of psychopathy?

And do you agree with these commentaries?:
