Craigslist Killer Admits To More MurdersBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - February 17, 2014
Miranda Barbour was arrested last week for helping her husband kill a man the couple had met on Craigslist. Barbour didn’t look the part of a killer and her arrest shocked those who knew her. Even more shocking was her admission that she had not only killed one person, but 21 others as well.
Barbour said that she had joined a satanic cult as a teenager and that this compelled her to commit the murders. She claimed that she and her husband would lure victims to their death by posting ads on Craigslist that offered companionship for money.
Barbour admitted to killing Troy LaFerrara in November 2013 and said that the other 21 murders occurred within the last six years. Barbour claimed that she met up with LaFerrara after arranging a meeting on Craigslist. Barbour’s husband hid in the back seat of the car during the meeting and tied a cord around LaFerrara’s neck while Barbour stabbed him.
Barbour told investigators in an interview, “I feel it is time to get all of this out. I don’t care if people believe me. I just want to get it out.” “When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” she continued.
Barbour said that she was willing to take responsibility for the murders and did not want to try to avoid jail time. She claimed that if she was ever released from jail she would kill again. The FBI has stepped in to offer their help to Pennsylvania authorities if they desire it. Investigators are working to determine who the other 21 victims are and where their bodies are located.
Do you believe Miranda Barbour really killed 22 people over a span of six years without getting caught or could she be making up the story?
