Craigslist Unclassified: An update

On Friday, published a story about a recent spate of murders connected to Craigslist -- including that of former Denver radio personality George Weber. The story also touches on the unlikely emergence of Craigslist founder Craig Newmark as an ally of the family of one of the victims, Kristin Olson, a 24-year-old woman killed in 2007 after answering a Craigslist ad for a babysitter.

Newmark spoke at a rally for Olson on Sunday. See video from the rally above, and read the story at
