Meet Russ Faria Fiancee, Carol Alford
Carol Alfrod first gained attention who was seen in a 2016 surveillance video as Pam Hupp’s alleged target in her plot to frame Russ Faria. Pam drove to O’Fallon, Missouri trailer park where she found Carol.
“I sat there and listened to (St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney) Tim Lohmar tell me his version of how he thinks I was supposed to die that day – talk about leaving you numb from the neck down – it’s hard.” She said. “You know, you make jokes about it, whatnot, but you sit and you think – she was going to kill me.”
Pam waved at Carol and thought she must be new to the neighborhood. Then Pam asked her “Do you babysit” and offered her to make up to a thousand dollars if she’d go with Pam to do a 911 segment for the show “Dateline.” But she forbade bringing keys, cigarettes, cellphones, or even wallets because the producer doesn’t like clutter.
Carol went inside with her dog and grabbed two knives, a folding pocket knife and a kitchen knife.
Suspicious Pam asked if Carol had cameras on her house. She confirmed that she has a camera and a knife in her pocket and have to call 911.
Then, Russ and Carol were strangers. Russ was fresh out of prison after being wrongfully convicted of the 2011 murder of his wife Betsy Faria. When question rose about Pam being pulled in for Betsy’s murder, she plotted to frame Russ in a new murder. Pam tried to lure in Carol before she took the life of her second victim Louis Gumpenberger, but Carol outsmarted her.
Carol’s encounter with Pam was the key to catching and convicting Pam.
