Barbara McClanahan, Barstow Deputy DA Accused of Threatening to Kill Boss, Reportedly Fantasized About Seal Beach Massacre

A deputy district attorney in Barstow arrested for threatening to murder her boss reportedly told a co-worker last October's Seal Beach shooting massacre was her "fantasy." Don't be surprised if Barbara McClanahan, who is diabetic, uses the low blood sugar defense. She is said to have told Barstow Police investigators that her blood sugar was low and she did not remember having raised the specter of the worst mass killing in Orange County history.

Also worth forgetting: McClanahan reportedly telling the same co-worker it would be easy to kill Supervising Deputy DA Julie Peterson by injecting her with a syringe full of insulin while the two were alone in an elevator at their Barstow County courthouse offices.

For her part, Peterson told the cops McClanahan was a problem employee.

Ya think?

McClanahan, who made bail after being arrested earlier this month at her Victorville home, has a March 8 court date, which should be easy to spot as it is now circled in red on the office calendar.

Her boss might be Klaus to phobic (as in Klaus Von Beulo tried to murder his wife with insulin).

But seriously, what a nut case.

Oh, no, Matt, I just bet this gal is just a joy to be around every day. Well, as long as you don't do anything that she could misinterpret as an attack (such as breath 5% more deeply than should would like). There are some scary folks out there.

Conceivably her (alleged) behavior is/was due to health reasons. That would be no reason to not lock her up until she is clearly not a risk to public safety.
