Overview

First, She Seduced Them…

Sheila LaBarre liked to troll the personal ads and homeless shelters, looking for men whom society had rejected for one reason or another—men she could easily dominate both verbally and sexually. One by one, she invited them to her remote New Hampshire farmhouse, where she engaged them in S&M. But over time, sex gave way to brutal acts of torture as she mercilessly flogged and beat her captives until they confessed to committing unspeakable acts. Once satisfied that they had paid for their sins, Sheila savagely slaughtered them and burned their remains on her farm…

Then, Humiliated, Tortured, And Killed Them…

From the disturbing audiotapes Sheila made of her victims' confessions to her own bizarre statements in which she claimed to have returned from the dead to be God's avenger, The Burn Farm takes you behind the scenes of the scandal that rocked a quiet New England town, and into the twisted, depraved mind of a manipulative, cold-blooded murderer…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
True crime author and conspiracy theorist Benson (Betrayal in Blood) chronicles the real and disturbing life of Sheila LaBarre, who lured vulnerable men back to her remote New Hampshire farmhouse and abused them psychologically and physically. After some of her victims disappeared, a police investigation uncovered the remains of two young men in burn pits on the farm. In 2008, LaBarre—who believed that she was an “avenging angel” ridding the world of pedophiles—pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of first-degree murder, launching one of the longest trials in New Hampshire's history. Benson commendably refrains from sensationalizing the shocking details of sadomasochism, pedophilia, incest and sexual abuse, but the brisk pacing suffers tremendously during some of the drawn-out trial sequences, and the ending to this “X-rated retelling of 'Hansel and Gretel' ” leaves some major questions unanswered.

    One of the scariest books I've ever read in my life

    This is more like a horror story than a true crime book. I can't wait for the movie to come out. What actress would have the guts to take on the role of Sheila LaBarre, the meanest and most insane woman in history? This book is excellent. Takes you there. I still get goosebumps thinking about it.

    Very boring! Too much about the trial and too much detail about

    Very boring! Too much about the trial and too much detail about interviewing jury members. Seemed like a lot of information was just fillers.
