Suppose you’ve watched the NBC series “The Thing About” Pam. In that case, you’ve likely been screaming at your TV while watching police officers and the prosecutor stumble through the murder investigation at the central point of the series.
The thing about Pam is a true-crime truthful crime Dateline podcast that focuses on the murder in 2011 of a Missouri insurance worker Betsy Faria, her husband’s inexplicably convicted conviction, and her dearest acquaintance, Pam Hupp’s diabolical scheme that sent a man who was innocent to jail.
In the six seasons, we witness police officers omit basic steps such as taking the time to read Russ Faria his rights and ignoring and sometimes burying evidence and other evidence of corruption. Then we’re even getting the district attorney Leah Askey, who intends to obtain a conviction; she gets caught up in Pam Hupp’s shrewdness and is misled. Add a touch of small-town, good-ole-boy (or girl) politics, and you’ve got an unjust trial.
Fortunately, the lawyer of Russ Faria acknowledged his innocence and worked hard to get justice finally on behalf of his client. Check out the following article to find out what happened to the real Pam Hupp and where she is now.

Pam Hupp is currently serving a life sentence in connection with her role in the killing of Louis Gumpenberger. Hupp is now in the custody of the northern part of Missouri within Chillicothe Correctional Center. Chillicothe Correctional Center is located in Chillicothe, Mo. In September of 2020, Hupp filed a motion to overturn the conviction, but the court denied it in March 2021.
Is Pam Hupp been linked to other crimes?
Pam Hupp was convicted of the murder in 2016 of Louis Gumpenberger, for which she is serving a life-long sentence with no chance of parole. She was once a crucial witness in the trial of Russ Faria for the 2011 murder of his wife, Betsy Faria; Hupp was arrested in July 2021 for Faria’s murder.
Her case has also been scrutinized over the death of her mother, Shirley Neumann, who died in 2013 of injuries sustained during falling off the third-floor balcony of her apartment. The investigation did not yield any conclusive results.
Is Pam Hupp convicted of Betsy Faria’s murder?
When Pam Hupp entered an Alford plea to avoid the death sentence in the Gumpenberger murder case, Faria’s murder investigation was revived. On July 20, 2021, Pam Hupp was accused of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the murder of Betsy Faria. Hupp pleaded not guilty. The charge of armed criminal actions was dismissed. However, she is still facing charges of murder. The preliminary hearing set for February 2022 was pushed back because her public defender passed away from an attack of the heart. Hupp’s trial is likely to be many some time away.
What exactly is what is an Alford plea?
The term “Alford guilty plea” refers to the fact that an Alford guilty plea is a type of plea in which the defendant denies admitting to having committed the crime and claims their innocence but acknowledges that the evidence provided by the prosecution is likely to lead to the jury or judge concluding that they are guilty of the offence.
What was the motive of Pam Hupp for her murder?
It appears that Hupp’s motivation was money. A few days before her death, Betsy Faria had changed her life insurance policy beneficiary to Pam Hupp. When the police questioned her about Hupp about the switch, Hupp, with a smile and fearful tone, told them she did not need the money as the value of her mom was a half-million-dollar which she was to inherit. Before Russ Faria’s initial trial, Hupp’s mom, Shirley Neumann, fell to her death from a third-floor balcony in the assisted-living facility. There was no video footage of her fall, and Hupp was the only person to witness her in the flesh.
