Prosecutors' Craigslist Ad Seeks Victims

Prosecutors have placed an ad on Craigslist in an attempt to find other women who may have been victimized by a medical student accused of killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist.

Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk County prosecutors, said Thursday the posting was made in the "erotic services" section of Craigslist.

He says police hope the ad will persuade any women who may have been victims of Philip Markoff to come forward.

The posting does not mention Markoff by name, and Wark says investigators aren't sure there are other alleged victims.

Markoff was charged Tuesday in the April 14 killing of 25-year-old Julissa Brisman. He is also charged in a robbery of another masseuse he also allegedly met through Craigslist.

He has pleaded not guilty.
