Here’s everything you need to know in that situation!
Where Did Betsy Faria’s Insurance Money Go?
Betsy Faria and Pam Hupp were close friends, as represented in ‘The Thing About Pam.’ In truth, the two women met at a life insurance business where they both worked. Betsy and Pam first met in the early 2000s, and their friendship got stronger after Besty was stricken with cancer.
By 2011, the women had become close friends and were an integral part of each other’s life. However, after Pam dropped Betsy off at her house on December 27, 2011, the women’s friendship took a terrible turn.
Russ, Betsy’s husband, went home later that night to find his wife brutally killed. Betsy had been stabbed multiple times and had her wrists slashed. Russ was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife, but he was eventually found not guilty.
Betsy had changed the beneficiary of her life insurance policy from Russ to Pam soon before her death. It was later learned. Pam, on the other hand, claimed to have received the funds and claimed to have set up a trust fund to support Betsy’s daughters.
Did Betsy’s Daughters Received the Money or Not?
From a previous long-term relationship, Betsy Faria has two daughters. When Betsy was diagnosed with cancer, her two kids, Leah and Mariah Day, were still young. Betsy has a $150,000 State Farm life insurance policy. She had laid aside the funds to safeguard the well-being of her daughters.
Betsy and Pam reportedly went to the Winghaven Library on December 23, 2011, when Betsy signed documents designating Pam as the only beneficiary of the life insurance policy. For several years, Russ had been the policy’s beneficiary, as well as the beneficiary of a separate $100,000 policy.
Pam claimed the money after Betsy’s death, and it was stated that she had spent it all. Pam did not take any action despite declaring that she meant to give the money to Leah and Mariah. Pam was given permission to keep the money.
The daughters had filed an appeal to get their hands on the insurance money, but the case did not go their way. In the end, Leah and Mariah did not get any of Betsy Faria’s insurance proceeds.
