Miranda Barbour Serial Killer Claims: Real or Hoax?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miranda Barbour says she left a deadly trail of bodies in her wake before being arrested for a single murder earlier this winter, but is she telling the truth?

Alleged "Craigslist Killer" Barbour, who was arrested for the slaying of Troy LaFerrera, said she killed 22 other people, until she lost count of her body count.

She qualified that it was less than 100, and that her Satan-infused, murderous alter ego "Super Miranda" would take over her body when the time was right.

The claims are chilling ... but are they possibly true?

The D.A. in Northumberland County, Pa., doubts that the 19-year-old girl killed anyone beyond LeFerrera, whose sex ad on Craigslist she answered.

He said in a statement Tuesday afternoon:

"As of this date there has been no verification of any of the information that has been the subject of media coverage regarding prior acts of the defendant."

Basically, he feels Miranda Barbour's insane claim that she has murdered between 22 and 100 people is unsubstantiated, although officials are still investigating.

The D.A. says any info he gets will be forwarded on to the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, but as of right now, is not buying what she's selling.

She's said she can "pinpoint" on a map where to find all the bodies of the people she knocked off - only miscreants who deserved it, she says - across the U.S.

A real-life Dexter, killing dozens of people before her 20th birthday? Who stupidly returned to the scene of the crime and got caught, then gave herself up?

The D.A. doesn't buy it, and he may have reason to be skeptical.

Anyone twisted enough to do what she did to even one person is clearly capable of inventing the rest, so it will be interesting to see what the investigation yields.

Barbour has committed one murder, however, in his mind. That would the man who she says she and husband Elytte met on Craigslist and stabbed 20 times. 

He may ask for the death penalty for that offense alone, although Barbour's lawyer has already asked a judge to block any bid for execution of his client.

What do you think: Do you believe Barbour's claims?
