Miranda Barbour was arrested for allegedly stabbing man. Once in jail, she admitted she had killed more than 22 people. According to a February 16 report by TMZ, she is only 19 years old.

Miranda Barbour admitted she stabbed Troy LaFerrara after meeting him for sex through Craigslist. She “tested him,” stating she was only 16. When he said he'd still have sex with her, despite the fact she was underage, she stabbed him 20 times. Her husband of only three weeks helped her kill him in their car.

According to Barbour, she started killing people when she was 13 years old. The murdering spree started when she joined a satanic cult. Miranda Barbour is unsure how many people she has killed; she stopped counting when she had murdered 22 people. Killers must kill at least three people, at different times, to be considered a serial killer.

“I did this to people who did bad things and didn't deserve to be here anymore,” she said.

Miranda Barbour said that she was a “molestation victim” and that was what prompted her to kill Troy LaFerrara. At the time of publication, it was unknown who molested her.

The teen-age female serial killer has no remorse. She admitted that if she was released from jail, she would kill again.
