    He new wut was going down so deff was in his mind


    great movie by the way!


    How did he get a plastic bag in jail...


    In my opinon it does not matter if it was sucide or murder because he got the eaiser way out thru his death. I am a criminal justice major and I have done many research papers on Markoff, and in all the research I have done never once did I find a time he was sorry for what he did, just sorry he got caught. He should have had more time on this earth in order to show some sign of being sorry for his horrible answer.


    Well I am sympathetic for his family and his ex fiance but seriously, this has just saved the tax payers alot of bucks! Speedy justice for all. Clearly the man was mentally ill but why put everyone thru all the trials and tribulations? Its over now.


    Note to Morris Wise! You are not so wise!Markoff did not just use a plastic bag. He had a homemade scapel and as a med student he knew exactly where to cut, to bleed out which was the major cause of death not the bag!


    Good one less!! And I don't give a shit if someone did us all a favor and killed this scumbag or if he had the balls and did it himself. Either way, thanks and good riddance!!


    Many years ago I tried to commit suicide by placing a plastic bag over my head and then tying the end around my neck. Gasping for breath the bag was pulled off by me. It was tried a few times and resulted in failure. After speaking to others who have tried suicide by the same method I am certain that it is impossible to commit suicide by placing a plastic bag over ones head. If Markoff was found dead in that position he was murdered.


    Where is the ebay rapist?


    i heard Lifetime is making a "Craigslist Killer" movie that will be on in January - can't wait!!!
