Boston homicide detectives are using the web in the investigation of Philip Markoff, the man accused of being the so-called “Craigslist killer.” On Tuesday, Markoff was charged with robbing one woman and killing aspiring model Julissa Brisman after arranging to meet them at hotels in Boston on the “erotic services” section of the popular classified advertising site.
