Couple Kill Man for Fun via Craigslist Ad

A newlywed couple placed an ad on Craigslist to purposely lure and kill a man, any man.

Eighteen-year-old Miranda Barbour and 22-year-old Elytte Barbour of Pennsylvania placed the advertisement mid-November, offering companionship in exchange for money, various news sources say.  

Police say Troy LaFerrara, 42, answered answered the ad. Apparently when Miranda picked up LaFerrara at a mall she gave a signal to her husband who was hiding in the backseat. Elytte then wrapped a cord around LaFerrara's neck, restraining him, while Miranda stabbed him, according to police.

The couple married on October 22, 2013, just weeks before the murder. Elytte told investigators that he and Miranda had tried to kill before, but the plans never worked out. Miranda has been paid by men for companionship (not sex), claims her new husband.

Miranda and Elytte Barbour now face homicide charges.

So, what are some ways that you can prevent falling prey to an online dating scam?

  • Always meet in a public place
  • Don't get into anybody's car
  • If you have a full name, check marriage records if available (these vary by states and counties); one good resource for this is www.knowx.com
