A married 18-year-old prostitute has been branded the second ‘Craigslist killer’ after she allegedly used the website to lure a man into her car before stabbing him 20 times and dumping his body.
According to a police report, Miranda Barbour butchered Troy LaFerrara, 42, after arranging to meet him in the parking lot of a mall for a seedy sex rendezvous.
Prosecutors say she then dumped his body in an alley before driving off to her husband’s birthday dinner party later on the same day.
The arrest comes after Richard Beasley was given the death penalty in April this year after luring three men to an Ohio farm by using Craigslist job posts before killing them in cold blood.
Police arrested Barbour after LeFerrara’s mutilated body was found in a side street in Sunbury, Pennsylvania.
After a three-week investigation, officers traced the dead man’s cell phone call history, they found the teenager was the last person to have spoken him before his death.
