The Lifetime network has turned the life of The Craigslist killerPhillip Markoff, into a movie. The Craigslist killer premiered last night and told the story of how Boston University medical student Philip Markoff lured women he met off of Craigslist into hotel rooms and then brutally murdered them. One of his first victims police found on April 14, 2009. Officers discovered murder victim Julissa Brisman in a luxury hotel room. Her head had been beaten and she had been shot three times by her assailant.

Julissa was a masseuse who had used the “erotic services” section of the Craigslist website to advertise and find clientele. The investigation led authorities to charge suspect Philip Markoff in the killing. At the time of the crime, Markoff was a 22-year-old Boston University medical student who was engaged to Megan Mcallister. McAllister was engaged to Phillip Markoff, having no idea that this outwardly clean-cut guy was a murderer. In August 2010, Markoff committed suicide in his jail cell while awaiting trial for Julissa’s murder.
