Cari Farver Wiki
Cary Favre Biography
Who is Carrie Favre?
A Nebraska woman posing as her already killed rival spent four years sending hundreds of messages to the victim’s family and ex-boyfriend until the truth about the twisted case was revealed.
Shanna Golyar, 45, is currently serving a life sentence for first-degree murder of Cari Farver, 37, who was last seen in Ohama in 2012.
Over the next four years, Golyar impersonated Farver in text messages, emails and Facebook posts.
In tonight’s ABC 20/20 special, Favre’s mother Nancy Raney and the victim’s ex-boyfriend Dave Krupa talk about receiving these before authorities finally decipher the bizarre case of a love triangle information and the harassment they experience.
Authorities said Golyar murdered the victim after realizing she had begun a relationship with Kroupa, a man she was obsessed with and she had been in a relationship with on and off for months.
Golyar stalked Kroupa for years and tortured Farver’s family while pretending to be the victim.
Krupa only dated Favre for two weeks before getting a breakup text from his phone number. For the next four years, the bullying was relentless, and Krupa kept thinking he was Favre.
“I regularly get 60+ text messages, 100 emails a day. It’s not surprising. As for phone calls, hundreds and hundreds. I’ve changed phones so many times, it’s ridiculous,” Krupa told 20/20.
“Once he sat on my sloth with his feet up, watching TV, trying to relax. I got a text that said ‘I see you, you’re sitting on a chair with your feet on on blue shirt. “Those things are true.
One message read: “I hate you so much I want to stick a knife in your heart.” Another said: “I will ruin your life and take away your happiness.”
Golyar even sent threatening messages and emails about her that appeared to come from Farver in an effort to get the authorities off the odor.
Authorities began to suspect Golyar after discovering major inconsistencies in his story. They eventually built a case against her that collected cellphone data and IP addresses that linked Golyar to Farver’s alleged messages.
Police also found that Golyar had two photos of body parts that were identical to Farver’s tattoos.
Favre’s body was never found, but prosecutors believe the murder took place in an Omaha apartment on November 13, 2012.
Investigators did not find a murder weapon or any witnesses.
Much of the case relied on circumstantial evidence linking Golyar to Farver, including his fingerprints on a pack of chewing gum in his rival’s car, and photos taken by Golyar that allegedly showed Farver’s rotting feet.
In the 2017 murder trial, Douglas County Assistant District Attorney Brenda Biddle called it “one of the most planned and bizarre cases I’ve ever seen” in her more than 20 years as a prosecutor.
