An eviction notice hangs on the door of the Boston-area apartment the accused "Craigslist Killer" shared with his fiancee until his arrest last week on murder and robbery charges.
Former Boston University medical student Philip Markoff, 23, is in jail for allegedly using Craigslist to lure women selling erotic services to hotel rooms, then robbing them at gunpoint to feed a gambling habit.
Markoff is charged with killing one of the women, 25-year-old New York City masseuse Julissa Brisman, on April 14 when she fought back. He is also accused of robbing another masseuse four days earlier at a different hotel in Boston.
And he is suspected in a third attack in Rhode Island on a Las Vegas stripper, who was tied up in a hotel room by a man she met on Craigslist but got away when her husband came in.
Authorities say they expect to file charges in that case by week's end.
Markoff rented the one-bedroom, $1,400-a-month apartment in Quincy, Mass., with 25-year-old Megan McAllister — whom he was to marry in August.
But with Markoff in jail and McAllister with her family in New Jersey, the couple apparently hasn't been able to pay their rent, MyFOXBoston.com reported. An eviction warning was taped to the door this week.
McAllister issued another statement Tuesday through an attorney saying that she stands by Markoff and still loves him, but is cooperating with the investigation.
She asked that her fiancé's fate not be determined by the press and public opinion.
"What has been portrayed and leaked to the media is not the Philip Markoff that I know," McAllister said. "To me and my family, he is a loving and caring person."
Meanwhile, the band hired to perform at the couple's wedding says it's been told it won't be needed. McAllister, who won't speak to reporters directly, hasn't addressed whether the ceremony is canceled or postponed.
Evidence has been mounting against Markoff since he was jailed.
Last week, a preliminary match was made between a gun allegedly found in Markoff and McAllister's apartment and the bullets that killed Brisman, police sources said. The underwear of Brisman and his second alleged victim was also reportedly discovered at Markoff's home, according to the sources.
On Friday, authorities in Rhode Island said his fingerprints were found on the wall of the hotel room where a stripper was tied up in an attempted robbery.
Markoff was a second-year medical student at Boston University when he was arrested last week during a traffic stop as he drove to Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. He has pleaded not guilty.
