DOVER, N.H. -- In her latest note to the media, a woman jailed on charges that she murdered a Massachusetts man and burned his body, says police misinterpreted a handwritten note they found at her Epping farm as a description of a possible murder victim.
Sheila LaBarre told the Portsmouth Herald that a note mentioned in police affidavits contained her thoughts about what might have happened to Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who disappeared in Aruba last year.
''I recall praying to God about Natalee and writing a few notes about possible ways those men made her disappear," she wrote in a letter dated May 6.
In a court affidavit, police describe the note as containing a crude drawing of a body next to notations that include the words: ''bury, incinerated-burned-ashes, flushed scatter" and the apparent weight and height of someone who was 110 pounds and 5-foot-4.
The FBI website describes Holloway as 5 foot 4 and 110 pounds.
LaBarre, 47, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kenneth Countie, formerly of Wilmington, Mass. He was reported missing in February after moving in with her in Epping. LaBarre maintains her innocence and is being held at the Strafford County jail.
Authorities also are investigating whether other cases of missing men might be connected with the farm. In March, authorities searching LaBarre's 115-acre property contacted a Somersworth woman because they had found her son's belongings on the farm. He has been missing since 2004.
In earlier letters to the media, LaBarre has criticized the way police searched her property.
