We all have heard Megan McAllister’s name before, not only was she Craiglist killer Phillip Markoff’s girlfriend she was going to marry him, but didn’t he commit suicide a few moths ago? How come Megan is his latest victim? What twisted plan did he leave for her? Vengeance or what is it all about? What exactly do we know about her? Where is McAllister now? Find out all about that and so much more in our story plus check out the photos (not Megan on these pictures, but her actual pictures are in our fabulous links in our story) and video below.
So starting with Megan’s sick boyfriend and fiancée, perhaps you remember he was the 24 year old medical student from New York. He went to SUNY Albany High School and for his medical studies he chose Boston University School of Medicine. Between April 10 and April 16 he requested services from three ladies announcing their services on Craiglist, he called for them to meet him where he would rob, kidnapped and in one case murder one of them (Julissa Brisman), he was engaged to Megan in fact she was with him on interstate 95 in Walpole, Massachusetts, heading to the Casinos in Connecticut, when they were intercepted and he was arrested. Megan defended her boyfriend and stood by his side for a while but as time passed and more evidence pointed him as guilty she had to make a decision, stay by his side and wait for him until he was released or close that painful chapter in her life and move on.
“To me and my family, he is a loving and caring person and in the eyes of the law and constitution, he is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Megan McAllister is the 28 year old student of Medicine from New Jersey studying since Spring 2009 at Boston University School of Medicine, She met her boyfriend while both were volunteers at the emergency room in the Albany Medical Center Hospital in 2005, she a senior and he a sophomore, they started dating and by May, 2008 they were engaged. Their big day was planned to be on August 9, 2009 in Long Branch in New Jersey but that never happened.
At the time of the arrest and as we told you before she was in disbelief and she said the following.
Unfortunately, you were given wrong information as was the public. All I have to say to you is Philip is a beautiful person inside and out and could not hurt a fly! A police officer in Boston (or many) is trying to make big bucks by selling this false story to the TV stations. What else is new?? Philip is an intelligent man who is just trying to live his life so if you could leave us alone we would greatly appreciate it. We expect to marry in August and share and wonderful, meaningful life together.
Her words vanished in thin air when incriminating evidence of his crimes was found at his home, Just few weeks after his arrest she visited him at Nashua Street jail where he was being held after his first suicide attempt using shoe laces, she was without wearing her engagement ring, she was not there for a pleasant surprise, but to call the wedding off and not long after that she came to inform him that she was going back to med school and that was goodbye for them. After she left he tried to cut his wrist using a spoon.
But on August 15, 2010 almost a year after the date where they should have gotten married he was successful in taking his own life in the most cold, planned and sick kind of way, here is the report released after he was found dead in his cell at Nashua Street jail.
A “primitive scalpel” from a pen and sharp piece of metal and, with a would-be surgeon’s precision, “inflicted a series of small punctures and incisions on his body, including his neck, arms, wrists and ankles,” opening up both veins and the carotid artery in his neck. Markoff also tied clear plastic bags around his head and feet”. Said Daniel Conley District Attorney.
But that wasn’t, all he has written Megan’s name with his blood plus the word pocket, nobody knew what it meant, Megan could have maybe or he was guiding someone to check his pockets, who knows.
On January 3rd, “The Craigslist Killer,” the film based on Megan’s boyfriend was televised at 9:00 p.m by Lifetime, the story produced by Judith Verno tells the story based on “A Date With Death,” the book by Michele McPhee and told in Megan’s point of view, although she wasn’t asked for her permission to do this movie.
