The father of a woman who claimed to have killed 22 people across the country says his daughter is a liar, but he supports the death penalty in the one murder she has been charged with, pennlive.com reported.

Miranda Barbour, 19, made headlines when she claimed in a jailhouse interview that she had killed 22 people. Barbour of Sunbury Pennsylvania, has been charged along with her boyfriend, of killing Troy LaFerrara, 42, who was lured through a Craigslist ad promising sex for money.

Barbour's father, Sonny Dean, told the Daily Item newspaper that he believes his daughter might have been involved in one other murder. Dean supports the death penalty for his daughter is she is convicted of killing LaFerrara.

The newspaper reported that Dean described his daughter as a heroin addict and a liar and he did not believe her claim of mass murder.

Thus far authorities have not found any evidence to substantiate Barbour's claims.

patch is about to lose lots of people looking for local news, haven't seen much for local news, but tons of national news. If i want my facebook clogged with national news i'd like a national news organization.

Stating that the source of this story is the Orland Park Patch shows intent to mislead.

I've posted before about this situation. I am a professor of WOMYN'S studies at a well known, all womyn, university in Massachusets. I teach radical feminist philosophy. As such, my opinion is that this women is delusional but also the victim here... of men and Rebublicans, especially George Bush. Please try and be understanding of her predicament...this is a misogynist society's fault, not hers.

Do us a favor Dita, GO AWAY

Wow, Dita. You teach college and you cannot spell? I hope they pay you a large salary and charge it to the kids who take out loans. And, yes, it's all George Bush's fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration. If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

Obama is an incompetent fool elected by idiots and welfare bums.

@data von struedel. So then, you must favor the Ted Kennedy Chappaqueddick approach to learning where a Democrat takes a girl out and shows her a good time followed by an after dinner dip in the lake.

I keep thinking that I'm positing to my local Patch but wind up here. You people are mean so I'm not going to say anymore. Shoot the messenger if you will.
