In addition to armed robbery and kidnapping another person, Philip Markoff, who has come to be known as the "Craigslist killer", was charged yesterday with murdering a woman that he may have contacted using an ad on Craigslist. Markoff allegedly held a 29-year-old woman at gunpoint and robbed her at a Westin Hotel in Boston. He was later accused of murdering 25-year-old Julissa Brisman.

According to the Boston Herald, the online trail that Markoff left is what lead investigators to him. In pictures such as the one shown above, Markoff appears to be using a BlackBerry on-the-go. Being an avid BlackBerry user myself, that grip looks to be indicative of a crackberry addict thumbing away.

Oh yeah, Philip Markoff is a medical student at Boston University ... erhh ... at least he was. Wonderful.

UPDATE: Julissa Brisman was 25 years old, not 26.
