    PA - Troy LaFerrara, 42, dies in Craigslist thrill killing, Sunbury, 11 Nov 2013

    This is local, but has now garnered national attention. I cannot wrap my head around this mentality, this level of evil.

    This poor man was choked and stabbed approximately 20 times.

    They wanted to murder someone just for fun and then went to strip club, police say.


    Apparently the bio father of MB's young daughter is deceased; police will now be looking into his death as well.

    PA - Miranda & Elytte Barbour - Newlyweds charged in Craigslist thrill kill, Nov 2013

    Police: Pennsylvania newlyweds killed man for thrills. (AP)
    SUNBURY, Pa. Newlyweds just three weeks removed from their wedding day lured a Pennsylvania man to his death with a Craigslist ad because they wanted to kill someone together, police said.

    Elytte Barbour allegedly told officers before his arrest Friday night that he and his wife, Miranda, had planned to kill before but their plans never worked out until last month when Troy LaFerrara responded to an online posting that promised companionship in return for money.

    Elytte Barbour, 22, and Miranda Barbour, 18, both face criminal homicide charges in LaFerrara's death. His body was found Nov. 12 in an alley in Sunbury, a small city about 100 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The couple recently moved to nearby Selinsgrove from North Carolina.

    According to Sunbury police, Elytte Barbour told investigators he hid in the backseat of the couple's SUV as his wife picked up LaFerrara at a mall on Nov. 11. He told police that, on his wife's signal, he wrapped a cord around LaFerrara's neck, restraining him while Miranda Barbour stabbed him.

    The 42-year-old Port Trevorton man was stabbed 20 times, police said.

    Sunbury police Chief Steve Mazzeo told The Daily Item that investigators will also be looking into the death of a man with whom Miranda Barbour had a 1-year-old child. He would not elaborate.

    When describing his wife's contacts from Craigslist, Elytte said this:
    "She is not a prostitute," he said. "What she does is meet men who have broken marriages or have no one in their lives, and she meets with them and has delightful conversation."
    delightful indeed.

    Interested to know if they'd practiced their macabre craft before. (See OP last graf.) Another couple added to that and they'd practically be in the "lonely hearts" / "honeymoon killers" league of.....

    According to police in Sunbury, Pa., Elyette Barbour said the couple had tried to kill other people in the past but were not successful until they met with Laferrara.

    Police said they were also reviewing the death of the biological father of Miranda Barbour's 1-year-old child, according to the Daily Item in Sunbury.

    I see that in your link above, too.

    SICK people!

    Here is more on the child's father:

    ....According to her husband, Miranda Barbour has a one-year-old child whose father is dead. When asked Friday night about the child’s biological father, Sunbury police Chief Steve Mazzeo said his death is being looked at as suspicious and their investigation may expand to other states....

    What a horrific couple. What an unbelieveable goal to have as a couple. Most couples dream of a home together, kids, traveling, etc and these 2 l<mod snip> biggest goal was to kill someone.

    This case reminded me a lot of the Jaren Lockhart case : Found Deceased LA - Jaren Lockhart, 22, New Orleans, 05 June 2012 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community ( Jaren was killed and dismembered but her killers have NOT been arrested even though they were seen on video as the last people seen with her and have NO alibi.) I fully believe that they had some sick pact to kill a pretty girl for their own pleasure.

    It is just so sad that such people exist.

    Good Gawd!.. How so very effed up our world is!

    and as far as Jaren Lockhart, I could not agree more with SwampMama about her killers likely to have been in this same sick category of truly disturbed individuals who become so obsessed with a significant other and the two, both obsessed with death(and IMO many times this death obsession is meshed with sexual pleasure)..and the two very literally "getting off" on murdering someone for sheer pleasure..

    IMO just as with Jaren's case so, too does this one have the very personal, hands-on method of murder being stabbing(this victim stabbed 20+ times, and Jaren having actually been dismembered).. IMO I believe this particular method of murder is very much specific in their fulfilling their sick fantasy-come-to-life(ie.the brutality and up close&personal action of stabbing and/or dismembering their victim)..

    I suppose these "couples" have always been around who are thrill killers with very heavy sexual motivations combined with the murdering of their victims.. and now we just know more about their existence due to our 24/7/365 nonstop media coverage these days..

    It is so disturbing, tho and with Jaren's case, its so damn frustrating in watching her sicko killers still not being made to face any charges, and therefor any consequences for the brutal, very brutal and disturbing way in which this young mother was viciously killed and dismembered
    The quickest way to become a fool is to argue with one..
