(Newser) – Solid evidence is piling up against accused Craigslist killer Philip Markoff, the Boston Globe reports. A gun found at Markoff's home—concealed inside a copy of medical textbook Gray's Anatomy—matched the weapon used to kill Julissa Brisman in preliminary testing, and the suspect's fingerprints match those found on plastic restraints and duct tape left at the crime scenes, authorities said.
