BUSTED: Craigslist Murderer Newlywed Teen Miranda Barbour Brags to Cops She Killed 22 Others, Evidence Suggests (To No One’s Surprise) Her Claim is FalsePosted: February 19, 2014
Accused “Craigslist Killer” Miranda Barbour claimed most of the victims from her six-year spree were in Alaska, where she shot her first victim when she was 13.
On Tuesday, state police there said they hadn’t seen any evidence of serial killer-style slayings.
“At this time the Alaska State Troopers are not aware of any information, beyond Barbour’s comments quoted in the press, or evidence that would implicate Barbour with a homicide committed in Alaska,” state police spokeswoman Megan Peters told the Anchorage Daily News.
Similarly, a volunteer missing persons group, Seeking Alaska’s Missing, said Tuesday that Barbour’s jailhouse tales of mass murder seemed far-fetched.
“Based on the extensive research conducted by our dedicated team, the numbers Ms. Barbour has suggested simply do not add up,” the group wrote in a Facebook post.
“We at Seeking Alaska’s Missing remain skeptical of her unsubstantiated claims and until proof of such atrocities is given we will not expend our resources on any further investigation.
