Two days after Christmas, 2011, Russ Faria came home from game night to find his wife, Betsy, dead. He was soon charged and convicted of her murder. But Russ Faria insisted he did not kill his wife. Betsy’s brutal murder set off a chain of events that would leave one man dead, another man implicated, and expose a diabolical scheme. It would also see Dateline NBC—the true-crime original—become a part of the never-ending saga that proves the old adage: Truth is stranger than fiction. This original series from Keith Morrison and Dateline defies all expectations.

Wanted More

Very compelling story, but wanted more back story. Other true crime podcasts give a deeper dive into the criminal mind. What was Pam's family life and childhood like? Did anyone stand by her at trial? What did she spend money on? Great factual narrative & professional production.
