I was wondering why I was seeing a spike in traffic for an old post about the alleged Craigslist killer, asking “Is Phillip Markoff Jewish?” Now I know: Markoff is dead. Suicide appears to be the cause.

From CNN.com:

The cause of death is under investigation, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis and Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said in a statement.

“Markoff was alone in his cell and all evidence collected thus far indicates that he took his own life,” the statement said. “Nonetheless, as with all such cases, a comprehensive investigation will be conducted to determine the facts and circumstances surrounding his death.”
