19 year old Pennsylvania girl claims to be serial killer
PENNSYLVANIA -- The FBI is offering to help investigate claims by a 19-year-old woman charged in a Pennsylvania murder case that she killed more than 20 other people.
The teen-aged mother, Miranda Barbour, and her husband have been charged with killing a man they met through Craigslist.
But in a jailhouse interview Barbour claims she has killed more than twenty people.

How did you kill them?
If verified, Barbour would join the likes of Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer as one of the country's worst serial killers.
As for why she's speaking out now, Barbour told the paper that she wanted to quote -get it all out- and that she doesn't care if people believe her. A judge granted her attorney's request for a psychiatric evaluation.
