Megan McAllister — fiancee of suspected “Craig’s List” killer Philip Markoff — has taken down the couple’s online wedding registry, but is still backing him, RadarOnline can reveal.
The prospective bride and groom were registered with the WeddingChannel.com with links to upscale stores like The Pottery Barn where wedding guests could buy expensive home furnishings like lamps, tables and vases.
But that has been taken off line today after Markoff was accused of killing masseuse Julissa Brisman, 26, and robbing prostitute Trisha Leffler, 29.
In an e-mailed statement to ABC’s “Good Morning America” McAllister said: “Unfortunately, you were given wrong information, as was the public. All I have to say to you is Philip is a beautiful person inside and out and could not hurt a fly! A police officer in Boston (or many) is trying to make big bucks by selling this false story to the TV stations. What else is new? Philip is an intelligent man who is just trying to live his life so if you could leave us alone we would greatly appreciate it. We expect to marry in August and share a wonderful, meaningful life together.”
Markoff – who detectives suspect had a gambling problem – was arrested by police while traveling with fiancée McAllister to the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut on Monday.
A subsequent search of Markoff’s apartment in Quincy, Massachusettes, yielded a firearm, restraints, duct tape and several other items that detectives believe were used in the sex fueled attacks.
The fresh-faced “Preppy looking” medical student Markoff entered a plea of not guilty when he appeared at Boston Municipal Court before Judge Paul Leary – he is being held without bail until May 21st.
