(KPLR) - Crime Watch Daily was in St. Louis today, covering the twists and turns involving Pam Hupp. O`Fallon MO Police say Hupp murdered a man with disabilities to take heat off of her in a separate murder case.
Crime Watch Daily correspondent Jason Mattera told Fox 2, 'I`ve got to say the reporting here has been phenomenal.'
Mattera interviewed Fox Files investigative reporter Chris Hayes for a special report planned for September.
Mattera added, 'This one has so many layers. There`s so many twists and turns. I`m sitting here interviewing you Chris and I`m saying oh my gosh, there`s another twist?'
Fox 2 was the only news source to attend the first Betsy Faria murder trial. Betsy was found stabbed 55 times, with a steak knife in her neck. Lincoln County authorities said Betsy`s husband Russ was the killer. Prosecutor Leah Askey relied heavily on Pam Hupp`s stories to convict Russ. Meanwhile, she along with a Lincoln County Judge, kept the jury from hearing Hupp benefitted from proceeds from Betsy`s $150,000 life insurance policy.
A St. Louis City Judge later exonerated Russ Faria when all the evidence came out. Now Pam Hupp is charged with first degree murder in a different jurisdiction. The St. Charles County Prosecutor believes Hupp plotted the murder of a random man with disabilities, hoping to frame Russ Faria.
Mattera said, 'Quite frankly I wouldn`t be surprised if even more comes out and we`re back here interviewing you again because of what you`ve uncovered.'
Our interview at Fox 2 studios and the complete national report will run next month in Crime Watch Daily`s season two starting in September. And stay tuned to Fox 2 news tomorrow night at ten to hear from Russ Faria for the first time since the latest developments involving Pam Hupp.
