How Did She Become Famous?
Megan McAllister is best known for being fiance to infamous Craigslist suspected killer Phillip Markoff. Markoff was awaiting trial for the murder of Julissa Brissman, a woman he had met on Craigslist.
The deceased used to offer sensual massage services. Markoff supposedly signed up for a massage before murdering her in cold blood at her apartment.
