Quincy, MA- Megan McAllister, fiancee of murder, armed robbery and kidnapping suspect Philip Haynes Markoff is standing by her man.  McAllister, who lived with Markoff, sent an email this morning to Good Morning America that was read aloud on the air.

“Unfortunately, you were given wrong information as was the public,” McAllister wrote to ABC News in an e-mail. “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 and wonderful, meaningful life together.”

Markoff, the son of Syracuse Dentist Dr. Richard Markoff, was arrested yesterday in Walpole, MA in an intense manhunt Boston police say involved high tech computer forensics, surveillance, evidence from the scene and old fashioned shoe leather. Blinkoncrime has learned Police belive Markoff was carrying heavy gambling debts


Neighbors React

Markoff and his fiancee have not been residents of the Apartment Building in Quincy long; most neighbors have only met them at the Clubhouse Christmas gala. A Police source inside the investigation has confirmed to that zip cuffs, guns and other relative evidence was found in the apartment last evening following his arrest.


Mike Dye, a neighbor and aquaintance of Markoff said they kept meeting in the elevator or hallway and discussed plans to get together, but Markoff had not been around lately. Dye went on to say he would need to consider locking his door, and was hopeful today would not leave him in more shock than he already was. Joe Uva, also a neighbor, said the community was in shock. He said he had watched the coverage, but the video did not appear clear and he did not immediately recognize Markoff from it.

Possible Trigger?

Police believe Markoff had mounting Gambling Debts. He was 4 months away from getting hitched. To those of us who have experienced stressful situations in life, what makes a seemingly accomplished man of privlege resort to such desperate measures? Could there have been a proverbial final straw? Posted as a link on True Crime Report   Markoff took his end of second year Med School asessment on March 20th. Blinkoncrime has confirmed the results of those asessments were not made available prior to Spring break, and therefore Markoff would not have known them officially. What if he already knew he flubbed it and would need to retake?

    Yup, I think she needs to let her dream of marrying a tall good looking doctor go. They have computer forensics tying (pardon the pun)him to the crimes. Soon enough, she will come to realize what a sociopath he really was.

    This girl needs to thank God that the police caught this guy before she walked down the isle to her own demise.

    I got a tough theory for some to swallow. The girlfriend knew about what he was doing. Might have even initially approved of it. No sane person could openly support this man with all the evidence against him unless some level of involvement was there. The denial level is similar to wives who protect child molesting fathers. They lived together. Played together. It was reported they both were headed to Foxwoods with luggage when police finally reeled him in. No mention either of them worked. I doubt they played the nickel slots either. He was a poker player. You need hundreds of dollars to work those tables. For her to be so vocal that he could not have done this after the gun, zip tie handcuffs, IP address, and security photos all match says a whole lot more about this woman who stands by his side.

    Ok, this woman may be in denial, but her letter sounds like something written by a junior high girl. She needs to ask herself some questions. Where did she think he was getting their gambling money? Why didn’t he use some of that free time he had, working? Did she ever see THAT GUN? What about the panties? It’s hard for me to feel much sympathy for her because she’s alive & rid of that lunatic-not so for his victim. Also, it’s hard to feel sorry for pretentious snobs.
