Craigslist Drops Adult Services Listings From International Sites

Craigslist officially put its controversial adult services section out of business across the globe last month.

Connecticut Atty. Gen. Richard Blumenthal told the Associated Press that "Craigslist representatives confirmed to his office on December 21st that it had removed erotic services listings from hundreds of sites in dozens of other countries."

The news comes four months after the website took down the section for its U.S. sites. The company drew fire from several state's attorneys general and law enforcement officials who categorized the classified listings as advertisements for prostitution.

The section caught worldwide attention in 2009, when a masseuse named Julissa Brisman was found slain April 14 in a Boston hotel. Police said the accused killer found her through a Craigslist ad.

Boston University medical student Philip Markoff was accused of bludgeoning Brisman with a gun and then shooting her. Markoff later committed suicide while he was awaiting trial.
