An accused Craigslist killer allegedly used an ad to lure Troy LeFerrara, 42, into a satanic death. Miranda Barbour, 19, and her husband Elytte Barbour, 22, have been charged with the murder of Troy LeFerrara. Miranda reportedly placed an ad on Craigslist for “companionship.” Once the ad was answered the young teen is said to have made arrangements to offer sex in exchange for $100. LeFerrara reportedly met her in a Valley Mall parking lot in Hummels Wharf. LeFerrara climbed into Miranda’s Honda CRV and the two appear to have then driven to Sunbury. Elytte Barbour was allegedly disguised under a blanket in the backseat and began strangling Leferrara as Miranda stabbed him 20 times.
Initially the Barbours pled not guilty, Miranda has since reportedly given an interview with the Daily Item newspaper saying that she is guilty of this crime and many more. The Craigslist killer has revealed that she is responsible for the slaying of LeFerrara and says that she lost track of her victims’ body count once it reached 22. Miranda has claimed that she would have spared Troy LeFerrara’s life if he would not “have said the wrong things.” Miranda said that she lied to LeFerrara claiming she was 16, and if his response had been not to continue the “arrangement,” she would have released him.
Miranda Barbour has now linked herself to a satanic cult rooted in Alaska.She has claimed that her encounter with child molestation is what led her into the hands of the cult.The troubled teen has stated that her killing spree began at age 13 with her cult leader, whom she would not identify. The Daily Item reported, “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.”
For the next several years she claims that drugs were an issue causing her mental strain. She says that the mental strain of drugs and actively participating in cult murders led her to embrace the satanic beliefs. Miranda claims to have been pregnant twice during the next three years. Miranda attests her first pregnancy ended with an “in-house” drug induced abortion, by which she was fed drugs and strapped to a bed. Miranda’s mother has affirmed that she was molested as a child, but the doctor did not confirm an ended pregnancy. By the time of her second pregnancy she reports that she was a high-ranking satanic official and moved to North Carolina for a fresh start.
With this fresh start, the newlyweds allegedly wanted cement their nuptials with a “thrill kill.” Three weeks before the Craigslist killer used the ad leading to a satanic death, she was married to Elytte Barbour. The Craigslist killer has expressed absolutely no remorse for the crimes she has committed. “I learned them and even became their friend. I did this to people who did bad things and didn’t deserve to be here anymore.” Miranda has expressed that she is not admitting to these crimes to gain glory or recognition. The additional claimed satanic deaths by the Craigslist killer can not be confirmed nor denied at this time and are under investigation.
