A MASS MURDERER?

OR A WOMAN WITH A DISTURBING TASTE IN TALL TALES?

A PENNSYLVANIA TEEN CLAIMS TO BE ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S DEADLIEST SERIAL KILLERS -- MURDERING MORE THAN TWO DOZEN PEOPLE.

NBC 2'S LINDSAY LOGUE JOINS US WITH THE LATEST ON THE SO-CALLED "CRAIGSLIST KILLER." Return to index of stories...


CRAIGSLIST KILLERS-CAM 99


19-YEAR-OLD MIRANDA BARBOUR CLAIMS SHE'S KILLED 22 PEOPLE ACROSS FIVE STATES --

AND TONIGHT, THAT HAS POLICE DIGGING DEEP INTO HER PAST. Return to index of stories...


CRAIGSLIST KILLERS-PKG


FOR MIRANDA BARBOUR -- IT'S EITHER A PLEA FOR REDEMPTION, OR A PLOY FOR ATTENTION.

THE TEENAGE NEWLYWED MOTHER, WHO FACES THE DEATH PENALTY IN A MURDER CASE, NOW CLAIMS TO BE A *SERIAL KILLER.*

Francis Scarella - She said she has done this before. I said what's the actual number? She said under 100,

IN A NEW JAILHOUSE INTERVIEW WITH A LOCAL PENNSYLVANIA PAPER -- BARBOUR CONFESSED TO NEARLY TWO DOZEN MURDERS ACROSS FIVE STATES.

MOST RECENTLY THE MURDER OF 42-YEAR-OLD TROY LAFERRARA.

POLICE SAY BARBOUR AND HER HUSBAND, 22-YEAR-OLD ELYETT, LURED THE MAN WITH A CRAIGSLIST AD FOR SEX --

THEN STRANGLED AND STABBED HIM IN THEIR CAR.

WHAT INVESTIGATORS CALLED A "THRILL KILL" -- BARBOUR NOW CLAIMS WAS PART OF A PATTERN OF KILLING THAT BEGAN WHEN SHE WAS JUST 13-YEARS OLD AND JOINED A SATANIC CULT.

"WHEN I HIT 22, I STOPPED COUNTING," SHE TOLD THE PAPER OF HER MURDERS.

Francis Scarella - "She never hesitated once. She never gave the impression that it was a rehearsal."

BARBOUR'S CLAIMS HAVE NOT BEEN CORROBORATED AND MAY WELL BE PURE FICTION.

BUT THE F-B-I AND LOCAL POLICE SAY THEY ARE INVESTIGATING.

Brad Garrett - Because she voluntarily stated 'I've killed 20-plus people' then law enforcement will then go 'let's go through those'. What location? What time period? What names? How did you dispose of the body? How did you kill them?

IF VERIFIED, BARBOUR WOULD JOIN THE LIKES OF TED BUNDY AND JEFFREY DAHMER AS ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S WORST SERIAL KILLERS. Return to index of stories...


CRAIGSLIST KILLERS-CAM 99


SO WHY IS BARBOUR SPEAKING OUT NOW?

SHE TOLD THE NEWSPAPER THAT SHE WANTED TO GET IT ALL OUT AND SHE DOESN'T CARE IF PEOPLE BELIEVE HER.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

GREAT WEATHER CONTINUES

After an absolutely beautiful weekend of winter weather in Florida. the trend looks to continue for most of this week. Tonight will be mostly clear with temperatures cooling into the mid 50's. Lows will drop to the upper 40's in some of our cooler, inland locations. Tomorrow's forecast looks nice with mostly sunny weather throughout the day. Highs tomorrow will reach the lower 80's during the afternoon. A sea breeze by late day will cap the beach temperatures in the upper 70's. Dry weather is expected for the next 4 days before another cold front tries to move into Florida this weekend. The chance for rain is very low; however, you may notice a little increase in humidity each day this week. Winds will come around to the south/southeast by Thursday/Friday.

The weekend weather may scare up a few rain showers and increase the clouds, but at this point it certainly doesn't look like a wash-out weekend is in the making. Return to index of stories...
