Sunbury, Pa. – A woman who is charged with killing a man she met via Craigslist with the help of her husband claims to have killed more than 22 other people across the country while she was a member of a satanic cult, Philly.com reported.

Miranda Barbour, 19, admitted in an interview with The Daily Item that she and her husband killed Troy LaFerrara in November. She also said in the interview that she has killed other people and stopped counting at 22.

Barbour is charged with using a Craigslist ad to lure LaFerrara to her Pennsylvania home in Sunbury, Pa., with an ad offering sex for $100,  The Morning Call reported. Police have charged that Barbour and her husband, Elytte, stabbed and strangled LaFerrara.

In the interview with the Daily Item, the newspaper reported that Barbour said she was molested at age 4, joined a satanic cult and left a trail of bodies across the country in places like Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California.

The Morning Call reported that the FBI has offered assistance to the Sunbury Police Department in the case.

dita von struedel van trappyodel, they need to come and get you before you hurt yourself; your comments leave know doubt you need help. Are you crying out for help, tell us where you are and I will alert 911 to come and have you transmitted to the nearest psychiatric hospital.

I totally agree with B. Dub. Ditas comments were definitely sarcasm. People need to relax.
Susan Setley February 17, 2014 at 12:29 PM
I don't believe her. She may or may not have committed the one murder, but 22 at the age of 19 -- and she got away with all of them? I find that highly unlikely.

The greatest handicap to law enforcement is that the suspect description/profile always starts with "male....." Women are still sacrosanct. There is never a concept or consideration that women perpetrate crimes just the way that men do. I finally found one California Superior Court judge who admitted that women are still treated deferentially in both criminal and civil proceedings at law. Criminal activity also includes the caveat that of "equal opportunity". Bad people are bad people regardless of race, gender or all of those other categories.

Abused when a child, abuse when an adult, we must speak up for abuse and we stop abuse of all types. Craigslist is a great site, however, it still promotes sex addicts who are so hungry for sex, and sex acts inviting a stranger to your house for sex sorry but the guys asked for it. I just said that, ho my

I agree she should be put to death, but a slow painful death. To claim it wasn't her fault what so ever and that she is the victim not the people she killed is ridiculous!!!
Greg Elbourne February 17, 2014 at 06:26 PM
Cut her a New Vejayjay, from her neck to her own, teach her pain before she dies...
smellypants February 17, 2014 at 10:28 PM
Dital has it right. All us men are scum, especially us Republicans.
insideguy February 17, 2014 at 10:51 PM
You're right Smellypants, we are all scum and I'm so disgusted with myself for being a Republican BUT I CAN'T HELP MYSELF! The alternative would be too much to live with. Ha ha ha
darrell nelson February 17, 2014 at 11:33 PM
Her sentence is already setup by vegas standard.....5 to ten in prison and the rest on probation... this is America folks and if you are white ...ITS ALRIGHT.
darrell nelson February 17, 2014 at 11:39 PM
If she really did killed 22 people ...This made her sentence more less. because if she was black ..she would get the death penalty just for being near the crime and don't know what really happen . This country is no different from NORTH KOREA.
darrell nelson February 17, 2014 at 11:42 PM
She could be telling the truth ...But what f.b.i.agent or Local cop is going to embarrass ..ONE OF THEIR OWN ?
insideguy February 17, 2014 at 11:54 PM
Darrell, North Korea , really? It sounds like you are really unhappy living in the U.S. There are a lot of racist a**holes in every race; don't be one of them.
darrell nelson February 18, 2014 at 12:08 AM
Hey !!! Even if she is telling the truth ...It makes sense ...Here in America .That black guy playing LOUD MUSIC is more a threat than a young white girl selling her ???
insideguy February 18, 2014 at 12:17 AM
You are being irrational. If she killed she should die. She probably didn't kill as many as she claims but to me, if she killed one person in cold blood she should fry. I don't give a crap what color she is. What about you? What if she were black? Or brown? Would that make it OK because of her deprived childhood?
Pam Henderson February 18, 2014 at 01:02 AM
We all have a choice in life to do right or wrong and to commit murder or not. She deceived people and lured them also, there is a decision she made to do this. We can choose right or wrong its our choice!
insideguy February 18, 2014 at 01:51 AM
Pam, you are correct, we do have a choice but please do not misunderstand me. Having a deprived childhood, or a privileged childhood, is not an excuse to do wrong. I believe that we all pay for our choices in the end. I also believe that some people should pay for their choices sooner than later.
dita von struedel van trappyodel February 18, 2014 at 05:51 PM
I am a professor in women's studies at Smith College here in Northampton Mass. To Pam I say that this woman was brainwashed by her boyfriend, father, her molester, the Republican Party, and by a misogynistic society in general. She didn't have a choice. She is the victim here!
insideguy February 18, 2014 at 06:09 PM
So then, you are saying that the guy paying for what he thought was consenual sex deserved to die. Should we give her a little therapy and let her loose?
The Peoples Champ February 18, 2014 at 07:47 PM
dita von (JERKOFF)! YOUR A SICK TWISTED LOWLIFE! FOR YOU NOT TO FEEL BADLY FOR THE VICTIMS AND THE VICTIMS FAMILY'S WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IS SICK! I GUESS YOU SICK BASTARD BELIEVE CASEY ANTHONY IS A VICTIM ALSO? IS YOUR REAL NAME SQUEAKY FROMME?
Pam Henderson February 18, 2014 at 11:52 PM
How is this related to politics? If you feel something is morally wrong and its luring people for the purpose of killing them, your gut feeling should tell you this is evil and sick. We have to take responsibility for not seeking help or treatment and commiting these terrible acts, where is the remorse?
dita von struedel van trappyodel February 19, 2014 at 10:02 AM
Wow, you people need some sensitivity training and some indoctrination in the ways of radical feminism. Shoot the messenger if you will but it is clear that men and Repubicans (especially George Bush) are responsible for all that is wrong in this country. Womyn, take back the night! And the day! and Dawn! and Sunset!
The Peoples Champ February 19, 2014 at 10:15 AM
dita von (JERKOFF)! or should I say SQUEAKY FROMME? Isn't that your REAL NAME? You sound like you are from a cult you sick bastard! This article MORON is about a WOMEN & A MAN who killed people who did not expect to be murdered! 2 coward shitbags who both deserve to die slowly and very painfully!! Now as far as you go! YOU ARE A LOWLIFE!
dita von struedel van trappyodel February 20, 2014 at 12:34 AM
Peoples Champ - I think you need some personal tutoring in womyns studies. I would be happy to oblige you. It won't hurt ( much) I promise. You are obviously a close minded, Republican white male who doesn't "see things clearly". You need someone to help you see things clearly. Let me know if you are interested.
