The upcoming Sheila LaBarre episode of First Blood is sure to draw more people as true crime gradually takes over both the broadcast and OTT platforms.
First Blood, a David Bispham-directed film, examines serial killers’ initial planning stages. It explores their pivotal life events that lead them down a terrible path while examining their reasoning.
Here is all the information viewers need to know about Sheila LaBarre, who is the subject of this week’s episode of the show.
Sheila LaBarre had several marriages
Sheila LaBarre, who was born in 1958 in Alabama, earned her high school diploma from Fort Payne in 1976. She had a number of failed marriages and tried suicide in the early 1980s before being sent to a mental hospital. Her violent mood fluctuations, according to her husband Ronnie Jennings, were a result of her anxiety that they would turn into crimes in the future.
In 1987, she relocated to Epping, New Hampshire, and took a roommate in Wilfred “Bill” LaBarre, a local chiropractor. He gave Sheila LaBarre his last name and they cohabitated until his passing in 2000. Then, claiming to be his common-law spouse, she received his entire wealth.
She claims that after an accident when she was younger sent her into a coma, she died and awoke to find herself seated at a table with other bearded guys. She insisted that one of the men was God, who informed her that she still had job to do on earth. In order to kill paedophiles and perverts like the men who injured her when she was younger, she allegedly “returned” to her life under orders.
What did she do, and where is she now?
Through a personal ad, Sheila LaBarre connected with Kenny Countie and encouraged him to visit her property. He moved in with her shortly after and was last seen that March. He had cuts all over his hands and face after being pushed by her in a wheelchair at Walmart earlier that day. The youngsters had been sexually assaulted by Countie, according to court testimony, and LaBarre had taped the same confession.
After being labelled a serial killer in 2006, she confesses to the murders of Michael Deloge and Kenny Countie and was found guilty of both crimes. Investigators searched her property and found three human toes close to the farm, none of which belonged to any of her victims. Although she denies it, there have been rumours that she may have killed Bill LaBarre.
The results of the three-week police investigation at LaBarre’s farm included the discovery of a burned mattress, human bones, and blood splatter in numerous spots inside the residence. She admitted killing Countie with a knife and then setting his body afire. She also admitted killing Deloge, but the cause of his death is still a mystery.
LaBarre was given a life sentence in jail in 2008 and is currently incarcerated at the New Hampshire Correctional Facility for Women in Concord, New Hampshire, without the chance of release.
