Miranda Barbour, the Pennsylvania newlywed charged with murder, has made a shocking revelation in a jailhouse interview confessing to committing up to 100 other murders across several states.

 

Barbour, 19, along with her husband, is charged in the death of Troy LaFerrara, 42, has boasted she stopped counting the killings at 22 murders.

Barbour, married three weeks to Elytte Barbour at the time of the November 2013 murder, claims she began her killing spree after participation in an initiation murder of a satanic cult in Alaska.  A self described Satanist, Barbour, who also confessed to childhood trauma which has been corroborated, stated she had "no remorse."

Multiple cults in the region have issued similar statements indicating Ms. Barbour and her accomplice are not affiliated with their organizations.

During her confession Barbour claims to befriend her potential victims, study them, and luring them into traps as she did with LaFerrara, whom she met under a Craigslist companionship advertisement.

Barbour's Serial Killer claims have been met with skepticism from the law enforcement community citing statistics including her age, the disorganized manner in which she killed and disposed of Troy LaFerrara and her willingness to bring in an accomplice and the fact that female serial killers are rare, comprising only 7% of all known serial killers.  

Although she claims she can assist federal authorities in finding every victim, her insatiable need for attention, power and control, may be the driving force behind her jailhouse confessions.

At 19 it seems a bit unusual to have been able to win the confidence, as indicated she "studied and even became friends" with her potential victims. Although her statements may not equate to the traditional definition of friendship, which then could be translated to Instant messaging friends or we emailed, exchanged sex texts and agreed to meet.

It is possible that Barbour has murdered others that she meet through online trolling sites such as Craigslist or others known as gathering places for sexual predators.

Federal investigators can quickly determine if the statements hold weight simply due to her age and pinpointing her lasts location and determining who, if any, have gone missing. With the extensive electronic resources available which is as accurate as DNA in providing clues and evidence the statements may bear further scrutiny.

Rescued from mediocrity, even among murders, Barbour is now celebrated and sought after.
