I went back in the archive of craigslist killers and it seems that in 2010 there have been almost 1 or 2 a month in the past 6 months.
Your latest one is allegedly 19-year-old Dao Xiong of Oakdale, Minnesota. Police say that Youa Lor was selling his 2003 Nissan 350Z on craigslist. Xiong is said to have responded to the ad and the two met in Lake Elmo, Minnesota for a test drive. It was there that police say Xiong shot Lor and stole the car in order to sell it for parts. Police caught up with Xiong after going through Lor’s phone records.
So Mr. Lor wasn’t shot for his car but the car’s parts. As far as Xiong was concerned Lor’s life wasn’t even worth the entire 7-year-old car, just the parts. This, my friends, is your craigslist customer. By doing business on craigslist you have a 50/50 chance of never making it back alive.
