Boston police say they believe the slaying of a woman at a luxury hotel is connected to an attack on a woman in a Rhode Island hotel days later, citing "a number of similarities" in what newspapers and TV are calling the case of the "Craigslist killer." Boston police haven't explicitly said the same man committed both crimes, though the suspects have similar descriptions. They cite only "a strong connection" in the cases. Police say they've received more than 150 tips about the fatal shooting of Julissa Brisman at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. The New York City woman advertised massage services on Craigslist and had a massage table set up in the room where she was shot Tuesday. The woman attacked Thursday in Warwick, Rhode Island, advertised lap dances on Craigslist. She was held at gunpoint before her husband entered the room and her attacker fled.
