Who Is Megan McAllister?
Police have arrested a suspect in the latest Craigslist killing incident, but his fiancée, who has defended him in messages to news outlets, is getting nearly as much attention online.
The suspect, Philip Markoff, a 23-year-old Boston University medical student, was arraigned Tuesday and ordered held without bail, according to the Associated Press. He faces murder, armed robbery and kidnapping charges. His attorney, John Salsberg, said Mr. Markoff is not guilty of the charges.
In an email to ABC’s “Good Morning America,” his fiancée, Megan McAllister, said, “He could not hurt a fly…Philip is a beautiful person, inside and out.” She sent a similar message to the Boston Herald. She didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment sent through Facebook.
