Craigslist Killer Admits to More Than 22 Murders

In an interview with The Daily Item on Friday, 19-year-old Miranda Barbour admits to killing Troy LaFerrara and more than 22 others in the past six years.

With help from her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, the two lured LaFerrara into a meeting and strangled and stabbed him in their car. Miranda said she was about to let him go until he said the wrong thing. That being him agreeing to have sex with her even though she told him she had just turned 16.

“I lied to him and told him I just turned 16,” she said.

“He told me that it was OK. If he would have said no, that he wasn’t going to go through with the  arrangement, I would have let him go.”

Miranda Barbour said she doesn’t care whether people believe her, that she wanted to tell her story to The Daily Item because she wanted to come clean and stop living a lie. She said she felt no remorse for her victims and said she killed only “bad people,” a belief she traced through a troubled childhood.

This was only her most recent victim. Miranda said most of her killing was done in Alaska.

Asked Friday night how many people she had killed, Miranda Barbour said through a jailhouse phone: “When I hit 22, I stopped counting.”

She wants to plead guilty to LaFerrara’s murder, and said she is ready to speak with police about her other victims.

“I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them,” she said.

Her killing spree began after joining a Satanic cult where she was introduced to murder.

Barbour said she went with the leader of the satanic cult to meet a man who owed the cult leader money.

“It was in an alley and he (the cult leader) shot him,” she said, declining to identify the cult leader.

“Then he said to me that it was my turn to shoot him. I hate guns. I don’t use guns. I couldn’t do it, so he came behind me and he took his hands and put them on top of mine and we pulled the trigger. And then from there I just continued to kill.”

Asked why she’s confessing now, she says she doesn’t want to be let out of prison or she’ll definitely kill again.

Many are calling her a real life Dexter except the most research she did on any of her victims was probably asking them, “I’m 16. Would you f*ck me?” Hardly a compelling argument that they should die.

She should have stuck to her intuition about “hating guns”
Once the cult leader showed her how easy it was to kill someone with a gun….
“And then from there I just continued to kill.”
