“Imperfect Murder: Farver (Crime & Investigation, Friday 14 June 2024)

Police True Crime

The Crime & Investigation network presents a new episode of “Imperfect Murder,” titled “Farver,” airing on Friday, the 14 June 2024. The episode explores the complex web of jealousy surrounding the murder of Cari Farver, who vanished mysteriously after leaving David Kroupa’s apartment in 2012.

The Cari Farver case involves a twisted love triangle that turned deadly. In November 2012, 37-year-old Cari Farver, a single mother from Macedonia, Iowa, went missing after recently starting to date Dave Kroupa, a single father of two. Kroupa had also been casually seeing another single mother, Shanna “Liz” Golyar, which created a complex and tense dynamic.

Cari’s disappearance is marked by a trail of strange and threatening messages sent from her phone to both Kroupa and her mother, Nancy Raney. These messages express jealousy and spite, with one even accusing Kroupa of ruining her life. Notably, Cari’s absence is felt at significant events, including her son’s 15th birthday, her father’s funeral, and Thanksgiving.

Years later, investigators James “Jim” Doty and Ryan Avis reopened the cold case and made a breakthrough. They discovered that Shanna Golyar had been impersonating Cari, sending those bizarre messages, and even had photos of Cari’s decomposing body on her tablet. This led to Golyar’s arrest and conviction for first-degree murder and second-degree arson, resulting in a life sentence without parole.

Imperfect Murder: Farver airs on Crime & Investigation at 8:00pm on Friday, 14 June 2024.
