Corpus Delicti Rule's Purpose Illustrated by Craig's List Killer's Confession

The corpus delicti rule is a concept few outside of the legal field are familiar with, but it likely applies to "Craig's List killer," Miranda Barbour, who, along with her husband Elytte Barbour, is charged with the unprovoked and premeditated murder of a 42 year old man who responded to a thinly disguised prostitution ad the couple had placed on Craig's List. The bizarre killing in rural Pennsylvania went from being a regional crime story to international news when Barbour claimed in a prison interview with a reporter that she had been a member of a satanic cult and participated in 20 murders.
