Philip Markoff, the Boston University med student dubbed the “Craigslist Killer” after meeting and slaying women he met on the Internet, killed himself in prison today after slitting his wrists and tying something around his neck during the night. Markoff, who Davey Wavey once ogled, also communicated online with transexuals though it’s unknown if any were victimized.

    Cute and doesn’t look like the serial killer type. Of course, its obvious he had issues, too bad there wasn’t someone there to dig deeper into why he did all this. May God have mercy on his soul.

    I’m sure Davey Wavey will be beside herself!

    @Enron: “Cute and doesn’t look like the serial killer type.”

    @Enron: What does a serial killer look like, besides usually being a white male?

    @Enron: You are sick, and an emblem of gay superficial sickness: Above all else, he’s good looking, and since that’s the most important human quality, god have mercy on his soul. If he were ugly you would suggest he rot in hell.

    @whatever: And Jeffrey Dahmer.
