Miranda Barbour Pennsylvania



Miranda Barbour,19, is a Pennsylvania woman, Charged with the November 2013 killing of a man she lured from Craigslist. Miranda and her husband, Elytte Barbour, 22, lured several men from craigslist for sex during the months preceding the murder.

The couple had been married only three weeks when they decided they wanted to experience killing someone together. They moved from North Carolina to Pennsylvania and began contacting men on Craigslist for sex. They attempted murder several times, but were unsuccessful.

Troy LaFerrara, 42, answered their ad and agreed to sex for $100. He met Miranda in a parking lot and she drove him to a secluded area where she stabbed him 20 times and Elytte strangled him from the backseat. They dumped his body in a suburban backyard, but forgot to destroy his cell phone. The last call he’d made was to them.

She says he was a bad man; that when she had him in her car, her husband hidden under a blanket n the back, she asked him if it bothered him that she was only 16. He said no. Because of that, he deserved to die for being a perv. She said the code words "have you seen the stars tonight" and waited for her husband to pop up from the back to begin the slaughter. He didn't, though, for whatever reason so she stabbed him without his help. She also says they left the cell phone on purpose. She wanted to get caught.

After her arrest, Miranda claims she’s killed upwards of 20 “bad men” throughout the course of her life as a student of Satan. Her father and sister say she is a compulsive liar and heroin addict, suffering the effects of abuse. The trial judge described her case as the most physically extreme case of abuse he had ever seen. The state says they are taking these statements very seriously, find them credible and are investigating not only that, but also the death of Miranda’s baby-daddy some years earlier.


In May, a judge decided that the death penalty could remain an option for her upcoming trial due to the fact that she took money from her victim, making it a capital case. Since her arrest early this year and the ensuing investigation, there has been no evidence that she is, in fact, a serial killer.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
