'Monster' Pamela Hupp Receives Life Sentence For Murder Of Man With Disability
Missouri woman Pamela Hupp, 60, was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole after prosecutors say she killed a man who had disabilities to hide her involvement in another slaying.
In 2016, Hupp called 911 after fatally shooting 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger. She claimed Gumpenberger carjacked her with a knife and ordered her to drive to a bank.
Following the murder of Gumpenberger, investigators said they pieced together a plot in which Hupp murdered the victim to throw police off the tracks of another slaying, the 2011 death of Betsy Faria.
Investigators are also reportedly looking into the 2013 death of Hupp's mother, Shirley Neumann. She fatally fell from a third-floor balcony at her senior living home, and a medical examiner has ruled the cause of death as "undetermined." Hupp was reportedly the last person to see her mother alive.
Krystal Conn, Gumpenberger's sister, was present for Hupp's sentencing. She told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch her brother's killer is a "monster" and "not human."
