Miranda Barbour: Satanic 'Craigslist Killer' stopped counting after 22 deaths

Miranda Barbour, the accused “Craigslist Killer,” is only 19 years old. But the murderer, who confessed with her newlywed husband to killing a man in November, admitted in a jailhouse interview that she has killed more than 20 other people across America, before “losing count.”

The Associated Press on Sunday, via MSN News, said Barbour disclosed killing at least 22 other individuals, all for a Satanic cult that she is involved in.

“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,” the teen killer told an interviewer with The Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa.

The profile of Barbour run in the Daily Item shows the “Craigslist Killer” as shockingly calloused over her unspeakable crimes.

Barbour, along with her husband, Elytte Barbour, 22, of Selinsgrove, Pa., are charged by Sunbury police in the Nov. 11 fatal knifing of Troy LaFerrara. Barbour made the unusual request to hold an interview at the Northumberland County Prison where she is being held.

Barbour said that she considered sparing LaFerrara’s life until he said the wrong thing. She also said LaFerrara was just one of dozens of such victims she killed in the past six years. Most of her killings were done in Alaska, she said.

Through a jailhouse phone, Barbour was asked how many people she slayed.

“When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” she replied. “I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them.”

Barbour says she remembers everything about her early killings. “I remember everything. It is like watching a movie.”

According to Barbour, she was sexually molested at age 4 and was introduced to murder at 13. Thereafter, she joined a Satanic cult while living in Alaska, and continued murdering because she thought that was what she was “meant to do.” Barbour would lure men via Craigslist, promising them sex in exchange for $100.

Elizabeth Dean, Miranda’s mother, confirmed that her brother-in-law sexually assaulted Miranda. He was charged with sexual abuse of a minor and sentenced to 14 years in prison.

“It was bad,” Dean said. “I never let her stay anywhere except for my sister’s house, and I was devastated when I found out.”

Barbour is unrepentant and straightforward in her admission that should she be released, she would kill again.

“I have none,” she said, asked about regrets over what she has done.

“I know I will never see my husband again and I have accepted that. I know I wanted to talk about all this because I know I had a 20-year window where I would possibly get out of jail and I don’t want that to happen. If I were to be released, I would do this again.

“By no means is this a way to glorify it or get attention. I’m telling you because it is time for me to be honest and I feel I need to be honest.”
