I knew this day was going to come, the day that the internet becomes the avenue for a psychopathic maniac and he gets labeled ‘the Craigslist killer’. I’m surprised other serial killers didn’t think of it first. There are hundreds of ladies and gentlemen posting erotic ads on Craigslist everyday and they are actually willing to let you into their hotel rooms, car or even home. It makes perfect sense and takes the finding, stalking and planning a rape or murder a lot easier in my opinion.
Investigators in Boston have been searing for the so-called Craigslist killer and have sifted through nearly 200 tips. The man has allegedly assaulted two women and murdered one victim. 26-year old Julissa Brisman (photo on the left) was an aspiring model and actress who was brutally shot and killed inside her hotel room at a hotel in Boston last week. I, for one, would not want to go down in history as the prostitute that advertised on Craigslist and was murdered because of it. The M.O. was the same in all three attacks. The suspect would respond to ads posted on Craigslist then meet women in their hotel rooms where he would pull out a gun and continue to assault the young women.
Police recently released a photo of the suspected murder from hotel security cameras, offering us a clear shot of the Craigslist prowler (photo on the left). I doubt if he’ll be on the run long enough to earn serial killer status but we will have to wait and see where the investigation goes.
It appears that women are constantly putting themselves in harm’s way and this hasn’t slowed down the steady stream of new erotic ads on the Boston Craigslist. In fact, there were over 600 new postings just this past weekend.
Craigslist offers up a hefty amount of morally questionable content. Just recently 9-year old, Rubina Ali Qureshi was posted for sale by her father. Check out best of Craigslist to see the listings that users have voted for.
