Craigslist has been labeled “sketchy” at best since the first person was ever murdered using the peer-to-peer all-purpose service but 19-year-old Miranda Barbour may have iced the website’s reputation for good after openly admitting to 22 murders on top of the one she’s currently being accused of.
Reports the AP:
A Pennsylvania woman charged along with her newlywed husband in the murder of a man they met through Craigslist admitted to the slaying in a jailhouse interview with a newspaper and said she has killed more than 20 others across the country, claims police said they are investigating.
In an interview with The Daily Item in Sunbury, 19-year-old Miranda Barbour said she wants to plead guilty to killing Troy LaFerrara in November. She also said in the interview that she has killed at least 22 other people from Alaska to North Carolina in the last six years as part of her involvement in a satanic cult.
Attorneys for Barbour and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, have both sought psychiatric evaluations for their clients.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for both defendants in LaFerrara’s killing. Authorities said Miranda Barbour, a petite woman with long brown hair, told investigators she met the 6-foot-2, 278-pound victim after he responded to her Craigslist ad offering companionship for money.
Miranda Barbour said in the interview that she doesn’t want to get out of jail and that she would kill again if she were released. She said she had no remorse and only killed “bad people.”
She also told The Daily Item she “stopped counting” after slaying the 22nd victim.
Oh we get it, you’re Dexter? Or is it Aileen Wuornos?
