The Thing About Pam Plot

The Thing About Pam is a true-crime series that chronicles events revolving 2011 murder of Betsy Faria and 2013 conviction of her husband in a certain satirical and unbelievably funny way. Betsy Faria was a resident in Troy, who lived with her husband Russ and was a friend to Hupp. A few days before her death, Faria changed the beneficiary of her life insurance policy of $150,000 from her husband to Hupp.

A few days later, she was found by Russ, brutally stabbed in her own home. Russ was convicted of uxoricide based on pressing testimony of Pam Hupp. However, Pam isn’t as innocent as she is portraying herself to be. Sipping soda from an oversized cup, she manipulates and fabricates stories and incidents in order to slip out of the case. Much to her convenience, she got a lawyer who can go to any extent in order to save her. And taking the advantage of the situation, Pam just goes on lying to make sure she pins Betsy’s murder on her husband.
