Suffolk D.A. Shows Evidence In '09 Craigslist Killing

Massachusetts prosecutors have released details about hundreds of pieces of evidence against a man accused of killing a woman he met through Craigslist, including a bloody pair of shoes he was wearing when he was arrested.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley said Thursday the shoes are the most compelling piece of evidence against Philip Markoff, a former Boston University medical student who committed suicide in jail in August while awaiting trial.

Markoff had been charged with killing New York City masseuse Julissa Brisman at a Boston hotel on April 14, 2009.

Conley says Markoff was still wearing the shoes when he was taken into custody six days after her murder. He says the shoes had visible stains of Brisman's blood.
