Authorities say the former Boston University medical student accused of killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist is dead from an apparent jailhouse suicide in Boston.
Ed Geary, a spokesman for the Suffolk County sheriff's office, says Philip Markoff was declared dead by emergency medical workers at about 10:15 Sunday morning. The body was found in the Nashua Street Jail.
"Sad to say, it's very true. It's shocking and very saddening," Markoff's defense attorney John Salsberg told the BostonHerald.com.

I think the lawyer is "sad" because he didn't get his 15 minutes of fame and constant cover by Nancy Grace.
I wish more inmates would take this guy’s cue.
Sorry Mr. Salsburg, but I’m neither shocked nor sad.
Luckily the bum is dead because you know they would never give this piece of trash three square meals a day, he'd get free internet, free tv, all on our dime.
Thanks you POS you just saved taxpayers a lot of money! And saved us from a psycho lawyer straight from hell.
Earning power compliments of the killer......GONE GONE GONE
He's shocked and saddened because he wont' be able to appear on Nancy Grace every night.
I feel just awful about that I tell ya, devastated is the word, just saddened and I feel bad too!!
Great news,We have another empty cell.
I am guessing that the rich boy didn’t enjoy being violated multiple times in the shower. I hope that the thugs in the prison made his life a living hell, and I hope he brought his sun tan lotion to hell with him.
Sad? Who’s sad?.
I could understand unhappy, but sad?
It was a bizzare case. He lured out of town prostitutes into Boston with an offer of paying them big bucks for services. He had them (!) check into and pay for swank hotels where he met and robbed them. He “only” killed one woman, from New York, who resisted. Some of the woman who pimp themselves on Craig’s List must obviously be desparate for money and she was one. In one case he had a Vegas hooker meet him in Rhode Island, where he attempted to rob her. Luckily for her, she brought her boyfriend/pimp along and he broke up the robbery.
The asshate pissed away the money he robbed in Foxwoods.
A sad end to a once promising life. Why did someone who had everything going for them turn into an evil lowlife killer? I guess now we’ll never find out.
By the way, prisons do not exist to punish criminals with homosexual rape, in spite of the many peculiar posters on this website that think that is their main function.
Oh the inhunanity!
Where is the ACLU? Aren’t they going to demand an investigation?
Sad??? Well, I’m sure all the women who had proposed marriage to him are sad.
It’s our fault really.
You know....none of what he did HAD to happen, if we’d only tolerate ____________ [fill in the blank].
A promising life gone to waste.
...and all that crap.
A murderer commits suicide? Why is that “so sad”?
Two robberies, one murder.
I’m actually pretty shocked. These types are normally monsters of ego who value their own lives over anything else.
