The couple has tried killing other people before but they did not succeed. Unfortunately for LaFerrara the Barbour’s plan pushed through in him.
In order to lure possible victims, Miranda Barbour uses Craigslist where she meets men and offers them “companionship” wherein she gets paid $850. Both husband and wife don’t have jobs so this is their only means of living.
The couple dumped La Ferrara’s lifeless body at the back of Brittany Settler’s garage. She found it the next morning as she was having her morning coffee.
After dumping the body, the Barbours drove to Walmart where they bought materials necessary to clean up the blood from the CR-V. Since the woman stabbed the victim many times there was so much blood everywhere and no matter how they tried they could not remove them all.
Investigation was not easy for the police since they did not have any leads except for the body. Luckily, they were able to trace the victim’s last phone call that led them to the Barbours. Miranda Barbour denied having anything to do with the crime but with the growing evidences collected by the police she ultimately admitted her guilt. The couple is now facing criminal homicide along with other charges.
With the evidences gathered against the Barbours, police are now also investigating the death of Miranda’s first husband.
