Some Links On Boston Murder

Pattern Emerges in Hotel Attacks

And as authorities launched a hunt for the man – also captured on surveillance cameras last week at the Westin Copley Hotel, where a 29-year-old Las Vegas woman was bound and robbed at gunpoint – the killing this week opened a window on a vast and elusive underworld of prostitutes who advertise online and do business at high-end hotels.

“What we believe is that there are a series of independent operations that are occurring, and it’s very difficult for the hotels to police them because they don’t know who it is that’s coming in to use their rooms,” said Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis. “We’ve been monitoring it very closely, but it’s very difficult to completely eliminate it.”

Tuesday’s victim, a slight 26-year-old who one witness initially believed was a child, had advertised massage services on Craigslist, the online classified service. A massage table was found in her room at the Marriott Copley.

Pines said Julissa was working as a masseuse to make money but rejected speculation she was selling sex.

“I can tell you right now it was massage and not prostitution,” Pines said. “I know what she was doing with that. She wasn’t into anything with sex.”

Zooming in on the .com killer

Boston homicide detectives are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the craigslist.com killer who, police say, prowls for his victims on the eyes wide shut online classified site. The Marriott masseuse advertised her services on the site and so did the Westin victim. Women linked to Hub escort services are posting in fear today, the Herald’s Jessica Van Sack reports.

BPD identify victim; Search continues for “Craigslist Killer”

Boston (AP/WBZ Newsroom) — Boston Police have identified the woman killed at the Copley Marriott Hotel Tuesday.

26-year old Julissa Brisman of New York City had been shot several times.

Police are still looking for the suspect who they believe may be the same person wanted for a robbery at the Westin Hotel on April 10th. Police think both incidents are related because of postings on Craigslist.org.
