Miranda Barbour

No Evidence of Mass Murder in Alaska

There's now hard evidence accused Craigslist murderer Miranda Barbour -- who claims to have killed between 22 and 100 people -- is making most of it up ... at least when it comes to Alaska.

Barbour told a reporter a number of the murders occurred in Alaska.  TMZ called police departments in Alaska that Barbour named in the interview, and here's what we found.

-- Palmer, AK: A police official tells TMZ, "We have no indication of any unsolved murders or missing persons cases involving her.  We are a small town of 7,000 and have no unsolved crimes [during her lifetime]."

-- Nome, AK: A police official tells us, "At this point, I have no information to correlate to any claims that have been published in the media. If information is obtained during debrief by the agencies that are in contact with her that indicates there is something I should look at, then we will take the appropriate action."

-- Wasilla, AK: A PD official says, "There is nothing unresolved or open that we are aware of that ties to her."

-- Anchorage, AK: An official tells TMZ, "There is nothing to connect her with any missing people or open cases.  We are not aware of any cults or satanic groups within the area and at this time there is nothing to legitimize her claims."

Short story ... there's significant evidence Barbour is lying about the mass murder claim.

I'd take her buns up kneeling, or legs up squeeling.

I didn't believe it from the beginning. Once I read that she says she started killing at age 13. Guess her 15 minutes are up as long as tmz stops reporting on her. I live in PA on the edge of Philly. The news here hasn't been reporting it as much as tmz.

TMZ, mass murder is not the same as serial murder. Mass murder is something like Columbine or Sandy Hook, when someone kills 4 or more people at the same time. Serial murder, which is what she's claiming, is killing one or two people at one time then waiting days or weeks or months before killing the next person.

She is the lamest killer of all time, and the media outlets need to quit talking about this loser now

After each killing did she post about her deeds on the "Rants & Raves" section of Craigslist? Thanks in advance.

Psycho bitch probably watched one too many episodes of Criminal Minds. One of my theories is on her first time out she blew it, messed the whole thing up and got busted, so her whole serial killer career went bust. She likes the press though, and the bonus is she can try for insanity with all this.

By the way TMZ, it's usually pretty hard to hide mass murder. You know, "MASS" = a whole lot of bodies at one time. SERIAL = things that take place in a series or a number of episodes, but not en masse. You seem to have the morons working early this week. Are you getting ready for the weekend early?

I think she's doing this so she can later plead not guilty for being crazy. This is a ploy worked up by her lawyer.

OK, so she didn't commit murders in those 4 cities...how about others? How about Fairbanks and Juneau? Those are the #2 and #3 most populated cities in the state.

She looks like she could be related to Sarah Palin. If she is, should could definitely plead insanity.

Mass Murder is an inappropriate label in this context. Mass Murder is : The killing of 4 or more persons in one location, or separate locations during the same event. (like your various school shooters etc.) Serial killer would be more accurate.

Not surprised at all! I found it very hard to believe that she did anything she claimed. She just wants attention.
