Miranda Barbour was recently interviewed by the Daily Item while in jail, and told the newspaper that she, along with her husband, Elytte Barbour, had killed 43-year-old Troy LaFerrara back in November. She allegedly stabbed LaFerrara about 20 times while her husband strangled him from behind with a cord.

Barbour said this is one of many killings she has been involved in during the past six years. She claims to have killed at least 22 people from North Carolina to Alaska due to her involvement in a satanic cult. She said the majority of the murders occurred in Alaska, and said the first time she was involved with a murder, was at the age of 13. She also claims she could easily pin-point where each victim was on a map.

“When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” she said about the number of murders she has involved herself in. She said LaFerrara was actually her husband’s very first victim.

She said she would like to plead guilty to killing LaFerrara because she feels like she just wants to be honest and “get it out.”

Police are not confirming or denying any of Barbour’s claims, but say they are taking them seriously and looking into them. Barbour says she is ready to talk to police at any time.
