'Craigslist Killer' Philip Markoff Commits Suicide

"Unfortunately you were given wrong information as was the public. All I have to say to you is Phillip 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??" she wrote. "Phillip 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 a wonderful and meaningful life together."

But a week later, she broke off her engagement with him during a vist at the Nashua Street jail.

That night Markoff made his second suicide attempt by raking a serrated spoon over his wrists.

On the date of his planned wedding -- Aug. 14, 2009, -- Markoff was sent to a specialized medical unit after he stashed medication that had been prescribed to other inmates in his cell.

ABC News reported that Markoff visited Foxwoods on April 2, 12, and 15, 2009. On the first two visits, he hit the blackjack table with money investigators believe he stole from his victims. He robbed the Rhode Island woman on April 16, 2009, while on his way home from Foxwoods, investigators said.
