Sheila LaBarre was born on July 4, 1958 in Fort Payne, Alabama. She was born the youngest of 6 children. LaBarre’s name at birth was Sheila Kaye Bailey.

From a young age LaBarre was sexually and physically abused by her father and family friend. She was abused with her sisters and mother. It is believed this is what drove LaBarre to her suicide attempts and her stay at a mental hospital in her early 20s.

Throughout her life, prior to her arrest, LaBarre married 3 times, which usually ended in divorce and her with another partner. LaBarre went on to commit assaults against many of her partners.

LaBarre’s serial series began in 2005, at the age of 44. It is not known how LaBarre murdered her victims as police were only able to find blood and burn pits with the remains of her victims inside. Both of her victims were male between the ages of 25 and 37.

According to records, her second victim, Kenneth Countie, had a form of autism causing him to have the mental capacity of a 12 year old. Before his disappearance, he was seen in a Walmart covered in bruises and in a wheelchair while LaBarre put canisters of diesel on his lap.
