ACCUSED

Craigslist Killer or Sweet Kid?

Looks like the Boston police aren’t the only ones to describe the alleged Craigslist killer as “clean cut.” Philip Markoff, the 22-year-old Boston University medical student who is accused of killing a woman and robbing two others he met on the Web site, is remembered as an intelligent and sweet boy by former neighbors. “He was a good student and just a really nice, nice kid. He was one of my most polite students,” his high school English teacher and neighbor told The Boston Globe. “Just a nice, clean-cut boy, smart, wanting to succeed.” Markoff was an honors graduate at his high school and served on the Youth Court, where students act as judges, lawyers, and jurors in school court cases.
