Did Craigslist Suspect Target Men?

The Craigslist murder trial grows more scandalous: NBC News reports that a Boston professional who wished to remain anonymous due to fears that he might lose his job contacted alleged Craigslist killer Philip Markoff through the online site. According to the man, Markoff found him on the "casual encounters" thread under a "males for transsexuals" posting—Markoff was looking to meet "men who dress as women, with transsexuals," according to the anonymous source. Although Markoff and the man never met, during their ensuing email exchange the man claimed that Markoff addressed him as "babe" and sent explicit pictures of himself to the man from a Yahoo! address that other unnamed sources claimed was registered to "sexaddict5385"." Over the weekend, Markoff reportedly told his family, "There's more coming out ... Forget about me and move to California."
