Dave Sharp****UPDATE**** Pam has been arrested for first-degree murder in this case.
If you don't remember Ms. Hupp, be sure to check out my previous post here.
The short version- she is the woman who claimed to friends with Betsy Faria and was the last person to see Betsy before she died. Coincidentally, Betsy had signed over her life insurance policy to Pam just four days before she was stabbed to death. Pam also was used as a witness by the state to convict Russ Faris (Betsy's husband), of murder. Eventually, Russ' conviction was overturned and he is now a free man but during all this ordeal, the speculation over Pam and her possible involvement in Betsy's death continues and today we learn just another reason why that is.
Pam Hupp has found her way back into the headlines of her local news. It is confirmed she killed a man who she claims broke into her home.
So far, the reports confirm Pam claimed she was in her driveway when she was approached by a man. There was some sort of struggle that moved inside her home and she shot him dead. She also managed to call the police prior to grabbing a gun and shooting this man dead. Then she called the police back informing them she had killed the man.
The man has now been identified as 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger. Pam claims she doesn't know who this man was. It has just been reported that in 2005, Louis had suffered in a car accident where he was driving drunk and steered into oncoming traffic resulting in a brain injury.
Those who knew Louis are suspicious. They simply do not understand how he was able to make his way to Hupp's home and because of his disability and his nature, they are simply not convinced he was there to commit a robbery. Considering Pam Hupp's past, it is safe to say their skepticism is quite reasonable.
According to the latest report, Louis was scheduled for a job interview at BCI Packaging, a place he had worked at before.
“It was odd that he didn’t show up because he really, I mean he had come up here so many times wanting the job,” program director Katie Jones said. “So we knew something was off not to show up for the interview.”Even more bizarre is the fact that Louis did not drive. He generally went nowhere without his mother yet somehow he found his way to Pam Hupp's home 13 miles away from his apartment. How?
So far, Pam had a mother who died in a tragic yet odd way. She was the last person to see Betsy alive. We also know that just before Betsy died, she had collected money for a woman who had cancer yet that woman's family never saw a dime from Pam. Pam also had several different stories about Betsy's life insurance policy; ultimately the court allowed her to keep it even though she had already spent all the money on herself. Who in their right minds believes a young woman would rather have had a distant friend gain $150,000 after her death as opposed to her own daughters? Finally, we have a disabled man approaching Pam in her driveway, somehow finding his way inside her home, and shot dead.
Drama, crazy, and death follow Pam wherever she goes. Hopefully, this time, the police will figure out why.
