Craigslist killer Miranda Barbour claims to have been killing since the young age of 13-years-old. The 19-year-old teen mom blames a cult for killing over 20 people.
Miranda and husband Elytte Barbour were formally charged with killing Troy LaFerrara, a man the pair enticed to meet via Craigslist. The meeting was fatal for LaFerrara who was stabbed over 20 times by the pair and then let for dead in an alley near the crime scene.
Pleading guilty to the killing of LaFerrara, Miranda also confessed to investigators that she has killed 22 people over the course of six years. Miranda Barbour told police that she was part of a satanic cult that forced her to kill since the age of 13. Barbour stated that she helped pull the trigger with the leader of the cult to kill a man that owed him money as a young teenager.
While the cult in question has not been specified, Miranda stated that it was a satanic cult and that she also suffered abuse as a child which led up to her desire to kill. She claims to have killed people in Texas, California, North Carolina and Alaska. According to Sunbury police chief Steve Mazzeo, an investigation is currently underway into the cause of death of Miranda’s son’s biological father as police believe she may be involved.
Meanwhile, prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for both Elytte and Miranda Barbour. Miranda told prosecutors that she wishes to remain in jail for the rest of her life as she will kill again if she is released.
