That was simply titled The Craigslist Killer.
He was a white man, preying on white women via Craigslist.com: the ultimate dream of a feminist executive producer hoping to paint all white men with a stalker/murderer brush.

Julissa Brisman of Boston, Massachusetts, makes a far better figure of sympathy than William Alexander Apps of Beaufort, South Carolina. After all, Apps was a just a white man (like Markoff) who no doubt deserved his fate. [Police: Man murdered after suspects respond to Craigslist ad, WCSC, 10-9-13]:
Charleston County deputies say two suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Beaufort man whose body was found near a power substation in Mt. Pleasant Monday night.
Jquan Scott, 19, and Isaac Williams, 20, have been arrested for the kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old William Alexander Apps. Bond was denied for both men Tuesday night.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office confirmed Tuesday that Apps, of Meeting Street, was found dead by detectives near a power substation off Magrath Darby Boulevard around 8:30 p.m. Monday, several days after he was reported missing. According to the coroner's office, Apps died from a gunshot wound to the head.
At a press conference Tuesday, Sheriff Al Cannon said Apps was trying to sell his 2006 Chevrolet truck on Craigslist, and the suspects responded to his ad on Thursday. He met the two men at a Hardees on Spring Street in downtown Charleston.
"The victim's mother was also present in a separate vehicle," Cannon said."The victim advised her to go on and that the sale was not going to occur at that time.
That he was going to take the two individuals back to their home." Cannon said that Apps then drove the two men to their home after the sale did not go through. An affidavit states, Apps took the men to a home on Mathis Ferry Road in Mt. Pleasant where they met two other people, one of whom was armed with a gun.
According to court records, the victim was taken out of his truck at gunpoint against his will, and held at the home. Investigators say at some point Scott left the area, and when he came back, Scott and the other suspects forced Apps into his truck.
Authorities say the suspects and victim rode around in the truck for a period of time, and at one point while crossing the Ravenel Bridge, Apps, who was sitting in the front passenger seat of the truck, was shot by one of the suspects in the neck, according to an affidavit. Authorities say Apps' body was then dumped in a wooded area on McGrath Darby Boulevard in Mt. Pleasant.
An affidavit states Scott voluntarily admitted that he met with Apps, and voluntarily escorted detectives to the scene where the victim's body was dumped. Scott then drove Apps' truck to USC Beaufort to party with friends after the shooting, deputies say.
After he as caught, Cannon said Scott led authorities to Apps' body Monday night. Charleston County Detention Center records show Scott was booked into the jail just before 10:30 p.m. on charges of murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Williams has been charged with kidnapping and murder.Nancy Grace won't touch this.
Neither will Greta Van Susteren on Fox.
William Apps will be remembered by family and friends, and that's it.
And unlike Markoff, who committed suicide in prison, Jquan Scott and Isaac Williams will enjoy their time in the joint. Live5News.com | Charleston, SC | News, Weather, Sports
