A Pennsylvania newlywed accused of meeting a man on Craigslist and then stabbing him to death with her husband's help said she killed more than 20 more people as part of her involvement in a bloodthirsty satanic cult. "When I hit 22, I stopped counting," 19-year-old Miranda Barbour told the Sunbury, Pa., Daily Item newspaper in a chilling jailhouse interview Friday.

They almost always want to be caught on some subconscious level, hence the leaving of clues or cryptic messages to the police or media. Its about the notoriety, serial killers are extremely narcissistic more often than not.
Female serial killers are a different breed though, there aren't many and what makes them tick is less understood as there are less instances available for case study.
There are probably others here with more knowledge, what I know is mostly gleaned from a criminal justice class on serial killers years ago.
Speaking through a jailhouse phone, Barbour told the newspaper LaFerrara was just the latest victim in a multistate killing spree that began at 13 when she joined a satanic cult in Alaska. The cult's leader let her tag along on a hit on someone who owed him money, she said. The unnamed leader shot the man and then handed her the gun to finish him off, she claimed. "I couldn't do it, so he came behind me and he took his hands and put them on top of mine and we pulled the trigger," Barbour said.
"And then from there I just continued to kill." The deranged young mom, who has a daughter from a past lover, claimed to have bodies stashed in California, North Carolina and Texas, as well as Alaska, where most of the murders took place. Her victims, she told the Daily Item, "did bad things and didn't deserve to be here anymore." "I would lure these people in. I studied them. I learned them and even became their friend," she said.

I actually don't believe it's true.
I'd need proof which certainly isn't available.
It does sound very much like something designed to manipulate folks though.
Think about it. Who would have a motive to exaggerate or fabricate that info?
"If I were to be released, I would do this again," she told the newspaper.
