Miranda Barbour, the accused "Craigslist killer," complained to a Pennsylvania newspaper that the FBI has not responded to her story of multiple killings.

The 19-year-old Barbour, who was arrested with her husband, Elytte, 22, in December, gave a second interview to the Daily Item of Sunbury last week. She told the newspaper in February that she had killed more than 20 people from Alaska to Florida, crimes motivated by satanism.

After that interview, Barbour was moved from the Northumberland County Jail to a woman's prison in Muncy, Pa. She complained last week that the FBI had not visited her.

“I said before I would talk to them about all of this, but they never came to see me,” she said.

Barbour and her husband allegedly stabbed and strangled Troy LaFerrara, 42, of Port Trevorton, Pa., after he responded to an ad on Craigslist offering sexual services. Barbour said two other men answered the ad but failed to appear at the times they had said.

Investigators say LaFerrara died three weeks to the day after the Barbours married and on Elytte's birthday.

“I tried it a few times but it never worked out,” Barbour said last week. “I knew we were going to do this since the day we met, and we tried, but the others just didn’t show up.”

In her second interview, Barbour said she had killed people in Mexico Beach, Fla., Raleigh, N.C., and Big Lake, Alaska. Investigators in all three areas said they are not aware of any unsolved killings.

"They are looking for full bodies," Barbour said. "They won't find any."

She suggested police search Big Lake for body parts.
