Ill. man killed after craigslist prostitution transaction

Timothy and Kimberly Smith

Man who served as wife’s pimp charged in killing:

Add yet another name to the ever-increasing list of so-called ‘craigslist killers’. 26-year-old Timothy Smith of Woodstock, Illinois is accused of shooting and killing 48-year-old Kurt Milliman during a craigslist prostitution transaction.

From what I can gather Smith was allegedly pimping out his wife, 28-year-old Kimberly Smith, on craigslist. Milliman was at their home in Woodstock supposedly seeking the services of Smith’s wife. At some point an altercation took place and police say that Smith shot Milliman.

Smith called the police and when they arrived Milliman was still alive but he later died from the gunshot.

Yet again this highlights a few things. The first is obviously that prostitution is obviously still going on through craigslist. The second is that anytime you use the services of a prostitute you’re running a great risk that you could be the victim of a violent crime. Of course, lastly, craigslist still needs to moderate the casual encounters section because this is obviously where the prostitution ads have migrated too.

Thanks to Bonnie for the tip.
