A Pennsylvania Craigslist killer confesses to the slayings of multiple victims and now faces the death penalty. According to New York Daily News Feb. 16, Miranda Barbour and her 42-year-old husband, Elytte Barbour, acted on satanic killings as members of a cult.

Barbour met a man from Craigslist and stabbed him to death. Her husband was part of the satanist murder as well. She says she lost track of how many she killed after she hit a certain number.

"When I hit 22, I stopped counting," Miranda said in a jail interview on Friday.

The Craigslist killer confesses not only to the slayings, but to where the victims are located.

"I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them," she recalled. "I remember everything. It is like watching a movie."

Investigators are calling the brutal stabbing murder of Troy LaFerrara on Nov. 11 as a "thrill kill." The Barbours were celebrating their three-week anniversary and they thought that would be a good way to honor it.

LaFerra, 42, met Miranda after she posted an ad looking for "companionship," the report stated. They met in a mall parking lot then drove to an area in Sunbury, Pa., according to authorities.Elytte was in the backseat under a blanket waiting for the right time to choke LaFerra with a cord. When he jumped on LaFerra, Miranda stabbed him 20 times. The teen satanist did say she was not planning to stab him and that her husband was suppose to strangle him. By her recollection, LaFerra said some things to her he should not have and that was her justification for killing him. The 19-year-old said she would do the same thing over again.

This Craigslist killer confesses to slaying throughout the country since she was 13. Her murder trail has supposedly been in Alaska, California, North Carolina, and Texas. FBI agents are working with state authorities on the latest confession from Miranda Barbour.
