A Pennsylvania teen charged in a gruesome murder claims she has killed more than 20 people.
The Sunbury Daily Item reported Saturday that Miranda Barbour, 19, admitted her guilt in the stabbing death of a man in Port Trevorton, Pa., last November and confessed she has killed many others in Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California in the past six years.
“When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” Barbour told the newspaper from Northumberland County Prison Friday night. “I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them.”
She said she is ready to plead guilty to the murder of Troy LaFerrara, who she said she killed after agreeing to have sex with after meeting him through a Craigslist ad, and is willing to talk to police about the other alleged killings.
Court documents allege Barbour, who joined a satanic cult in Alaska when she was 13, stabbed LaFerrara 20 times while her 22-year-old husband, Elytte Barbour, had a cord wrapped around his neck.
Miranda Barbour told the paper she was confessing to being a serial killer because she wanted to stop living a lie, though she added she felt no remorse because she only killed “bad people.”
Sunbury police Chief Steve Mazzeo said authorities were taking her claims seriously.
“From information we gathered and from information gathered from her interview we are seriously concerned and have been in contact with the proper authorities,” he told the Daily Item.
