Sunbury, PA, United States (4E) – A self-confessed teen Satanist accused of murdering a man in November admitted to killing the victim and 22 other “bad people” to a Pennsylvania newspaper reporter who interviewed her by phone at the Northumberland County Jail on Friday.
Miranda Barbour, 19, told The Daily Item that she stabbed Troy LaFerrara, 42, of Port Trevorton, 20 times as her husband, Elytte Barbour, 22, of Selinsgrove, strangled him with a cord inside their car.
LaFerrara was lured into meeting Barbour for sex through a Craigslist ad. She picked up the victim at a mall parking lot in Hummels Wharf on Nov. 11 and drove him to Sunbury as her husband hid at the backseat. The Barbours planned the murder to celebrate the third-week anniversary of their wedding.
Barbour said she would have let LaFerrara go had he changed his mind into having sex with her for $100 after she told him she was only 16 years old. She also said that she wasn’t planning to stab him but things got out of hand.
Barbour’s lawyer, chief public defender Ed Greco, pleaded not guilty for Barbour during her arraignment. But Barbour said she doesn’t want to be released from jail because she will kill again.
Barbour also said during the phone interview she requested that she took part in the killing of other people in Alaska, California, North Carolina and Texas but stopped counting the number of her victims in the 22nd kill.
Barbour said she wants to plead guilty to the killings and pinpoint the location of the other victims’ bodies on a map.
Barbour said she felt no remorse for her victims, whom she considered bad people. She said a relative molested her at age 4 and killed for the first time at age 13 with the man who introduced her to Satanism and drug abuse teaching her how to shoot the victim.
Barbour said she made the confession because she wanted to get it all of out and be honest..
