Megan McAllister, the fiance of accused Craigslist killer Phillip Markoff, said in a new statement that she still loves him — but she didn’t say if she still plans to marry him.
The Bstreetband, a Bruce Springsteen tribute band the couple hired to work at their Aug. 14 wedding, is advertising themselves as available for that date. The band’s owner, William Forte, told the AP that one of McCallister’s relatives told him, “that as of right now, there is no way they will be able to have the Aug. 14 wedding date.”
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, this date is now available to book,” the band wrote on its Web site.
Markoff, a second-year Boston University medical student, has pleaded not guilty to accusations he killed Julissa Brisman, a 25-year-old New York masseur, and assaulted a prostitute. His attorney, John Salsberg, said he is innocent of the charges.
McCallister said she is planning on cooperating with Salsberg and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office in their ongoing investigations.
“I can only tell them what I know and what is the truth,” she said in the statement released Monday.
In a development that hinders any chance of a wedding, a man told Fox News Monday that he had exchanged graphic e-mails with the murder suspect.
“I posted an ad on Craigslist under ‘Male for T,’ which stands for ‘Male for transsexuals,’” he said. “That’s where he found me, correct… it would be tough for anyone to hear, to hear that your — that your fiance is saying that he’s single and looking for sex online anonymously.”
The man said he was horrified when he learned of Markoff’s alleged involvement in Brisman’s death.
“I’m scared just the fact that we — we — I spoke with a killer,” he said.
