Craigslist Killer is a Boston University medical student!

DANG! What's with killers and violent people being doctors or studying to be doctors? We physicians have sworn an oath to take care of people, to heal them, to do them no harm at the very least. So how can a person be a killer and be also a doctor when one ends a life while the other one is for life? You just can't connect the two! Can a doctor's conscience even rationalize killing a person? And I'm not talking about euthanasia and other forms of secret mercy killings coz that's another debate -_- Can the doctor/killer be thinking that it doesn't matter if s/he murders coz s/he has saved a thousand of lives in return? Is there a higher percentage of psychopaths in the medical profession? Questions, so many questions! Anyway, here's a short history and latest update on the Craigslist Killer:

Boston police believe they have arrested the so-called "Craigslist killer" who murdered a young woman after she posted an advert on the popular site to offer massages, US media reported. The Boston Globe and New York Daily News quoted unnamed sources saying they believed the same suspect was behind two other attacks on women in hotels this month.

The first victim was a 29-year-old woman who advertised on Craigslist as an exotic dancer and was robbed of her credit card and 800 dollars cash on April 10. The second, a 26-year-old woman who offered visiting massage services, was shot dead. The third, just four days ago, was a 26-year-old prostitute from Las Vegas who was robbed at gunpoint at a hotel south of Boston, the Daily News said.

Police released surveillance photographs earlier Monday of the suspect. US media has dubbed him the "Craigslist killer." SOURCE
