    ‘Craigslist Killer’ Nabbed Thanks to BlackBerry Addiction

    Story and Pictures courtesy of Intomobile

    Could it be Philip Markoff, the man accused of being the ‘Craiglist Killer’ was/is actually a BlackBerry user? And could it be that his own BlackBerry device was a large part of bringing him to justice? It’s looking that way. You may have noticed on TV news all over North America (and no doubt the world) Mr. Blurrycam images of Markoff clutching onto his BlackBerry. In fact, in the image above you can see what appears to be Markoff doing some impromptu texting on-the-go. Look at those thumbs. A telltale sign of texting.

    The Boston Herald has reported that Markoff’s online trail is what did him in. Investigators followed and checked out high-tech leads and traced IP addresses to actual locations in the real world. Arraignment is scheduled for today, so I’m sure we’ll learn more on this one soon. If found guilty, I doubt he’ll get any reception in prison.

    That's why BB is a BB. People would generally say 'Thank God' with a sigh of relief. I would add 'thanks RIM'

    Do we know if he was a PS member?

    How well do we know each other, not enough, too much? I feel bad for the victims familes.

    EYE FOR AN EYE I SAY, THEN MOVE ON TO HIS FINGERS.

    You are mistaken - there will be a reception for him in prison. But he won't like it.

    Thumbs up

    I am so glad that they caught him, and the one thing he seemed to love(BB) did him in. Can the BB be our next crime fighting tool? hmmm one to think on.

    I though I heard on a news report that he was driving on interstate when he was apprehended. Thank goodness for GPS tracking.

    There's no one, no amount of $$ and no material objects, that are worth me going to jail for

    I worked for the county sheriff at the county jail for 4 years.
    I know what goes on in there, and I will never be on the "other" side of the bars!!

    Will his GPS tracking still work when Bubba "implants" it?
