Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley released documents, audio, video and still images connected with the prosecution of Philip Markoff, who was charged with killing New York City masseuse Julissa Brisman at a Boston hotel in 2009.

WBZ-TV’s Beth Germano reports.

Among the items – the Gray’s Anatomy textbook investigators say Markoff carved out to hide the murder weapon.

Perhaps the most damning evidence presented was Markoff’s blood-stained shoes.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports.

“They were blood stains, and they came from the woman he had murdered,” said Conley.

Markoff was charged with killing New York City masseuse Julissa Brisman at a Boston hotel in 2009.

Markoff, a former Boston University medical student, committed suicide in jail in August while he was awaiting trial in the killing.

Brisman’s mother expressed frustration last month that Conley had not released the case file six months after Markoff’s death.

Conley told reporters Thursday that there was no conclusive motive in the murder.

    The prostitute is dead, the killer is dead and the case hase been closed for many months. What possible good can come from the release of information, most of which we already know, at this point in time. Perhaps now his fiancee will believe that the man she was going to marry wasn’t the guy she thought he was.

    So the moral to this story is crime, it doesn’t pay.

    Prostitution is a henious crime in itself. Murder is much worse but this is old news. Markoff’s fiance should have moved well beyond what her life was to be.

    Let’s talk about the sargent of the Framingham police department and how the trial court of the Commonwealth turned the other cheek. This guy is a loser cop who obviously got off scott free simply for being a public servent and the long arm of the law, the DA’s office letting it slide.

    Does this mean the laws of the Commonwealth have been re-written as far as dropping our draws and peeing outside? Does this not make him a registered sex offender? Maybe I should call the State Police and have him picked up for not registering?

    Oh I forgot they are all in bed together. Bunch of criminals with guns and badges!

    The 2 main characters in this sordid tale left behind a lesson if you look beyond the surface. It reveals a beautiful young woman who died too soon and a young man who seemed to have it all-med school, family, a loving fiancee. Both were involved in sordid, illegal activities- prostitution,gambling, robbery and murder. Both appeared to have it all, yet neither understood the value of hard work, love and family. Now, that’s a tragedy.
