    Oh my gosh! Fingerprints on a pack of gum found in the car and blood stains at the boyfriend's residence (they were both dating him) were what led to Goylar's arrest. $5 million dollar bond!!!

    So why isn't he charged if the blood stains were at his house?

    Golyar is also accused of trying to cover up the killing by posing as the victim, Cari Farver, online...

    Golyar's attorney, James Martin Davis, said his client is confused as to why she's even a suspect. Davis said Golyar and the alleged victim dated the same man but had only met each other once, and that this is not enough to tie Golyar to this case...

    Prosecutors argue they have a strong case - that investigators reportedly found the victim's blood in the boyriend's apartment and that Golyar's fingerprints were on gum left in the victim's car, also parked at the boyfriend's place.

    Prosecutors also allege Golyar tried to make it look like Farver was still alive but left town.

    "There is some DNA evidence that does come back to the victim from her vehicle, and there's a lot of computer and text messaging evidence that will tie the defendant to the case," said Brenda Beadle, deputy Douglas County Attorney.

    Beadle said the investigation continues into whether there are any other suspects and that prosecutors are meeting with a witness this week.

    Here's a kind of interesting article about this story. It's confusingly written--half seems to be about Golyar's new relationship and quotes that guy's parents, who know nothing. Why? I guess the reporter couldn't get anyone else to talk to him!

    Judge grants bench trial request for suspect accused in cold case homicide

    http://www.wowt.com/content/news/Jud...411908015.html

    A judge granted a request for a bench trial Thursday for Shanna Goylar, 42, accused in the murder of Cari Farver. Goylar entered a plea of not guilty Thursday in court.

    Attorney James Martin Davis says prosecutors have no body, no murder weapon, and no witnesses. Davis argued the prosecution doesn't even know if a murder occurred or where it could have happened.

    Davis says a bench trial will speed up the proceedings. Goylar's trial date is set for May 10th.

    Trial begins for Iowa woman who prosecutors say killed, then impersonated her romantic rival

    http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/tria...be1a213ca.html

    It’s a chilling paradox.

    To keep authorities from suspecting her in Cari Farver’s alleged slaying, Shanna Golyar took on the digital persona of her romantic rival, Chief Deputy Douglas County Attorney Brenda Beadle argued in her opening statement Wednesday.

    Golyar, 41, is charged with first-degree murder and second-degree arson in connection with Farver’s disappearance on Nov. 13, 2012.

    Wednesday marked the first day of a bench trial expected to last several days. Douglas County District Judge Timothy Burns will decide whether Golyar is acquitted or guilty.

    Over time, authorities say Golyar sent thousands of texts and emails that were purported to be by Farver after Farver, 37, went missing.

    Golyar, Beadle said, “spent her days, her weeks, her months, her years, tormenting many lives during this, spinning the web of deception to keep Cari alive so she wouldn’t get caught.

    “The lengths that (Golyar) went to accomplish that are really unfathomable.”

    At murder trial, relatives tell of receiving suspicious messages from writer who claimed to be missing woman

    http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/at-m...7dc03695d.html

    On Mother’s Day three years ago — the second one since Nancy Raney’s daughter disappeared — a text from an unknown number appeared on Raney’s phone.

    “Happy Mother Day mom! How has Max been?”

    It had been nearly a year and a half since Raney’s daughter Cari Farver went missing, and Raney had received mysterious messages before. Although she was always hopeful for any trace of where her daughter might be, she was highly skeptical.

    “The grammar was terrible,” Raney testified Thursday in the trial of her daughter’s alleged killer. “Cari was very meticulous with her grammar and spelling. Any text or email had to be perfect. It wouldn’t go out with bad grammar.”
    Two months later Raney discovered a new Facebook profile that someone created of Cari Farver, with a photo of Farver and her father, who had died of stomach cancer in December.

    One of the first posts had a photo of a hand with an engagement ring. The post said that Farver was newly engaged to David Kroupa — the man she had spent the night with before she went missing.

    “It was absolutely not my daughter’s hand,” Raney testified. “My daughter has very long, thin fingers, and that hand did not.”

    Sgt. Jason LeMaster of the Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office, who was investigating the missing person case, followed up with Kroupa, who said he was not engaged to Farver.
    One piece of the scant physical evidence of a potential slaying that prosecutors point to is blood on the front passenger seat of Farver’s car. Authorities discovered the blood in 2016, when they peeled the clean top fabric to expose the bloodied foam cushion.

    Davis doesn’t dispute that it’s Farver’s blood. But he questioned in Golyar’s preliminary hearing whether it could be menstrual blood.

    Raney’s testimony nearly dismissed that theory.

    Raney said there’s no way it’s menstrual blood: Farver had a hysterectomy eight months before.
    The new Facebook profile of Farver messaged Raney in January:

    “Mom why are you not talking anymore”

    “Is this really you?” Raney replied.

    “Yes mom the other account was hacked. I am sorry I missed the funeral”

    The new Facebook account under Farver’s name also messaged Max in May 2013:

    “Hey little man how are you?”

    Max didn’t respond for nearly two weeks. The messages spooked him. He asked three questions: What is his middle name, what was the first family boxer dog’s name, and who was his best friend while growing up?

    The three questions were strategic.

    “The middle name, someone else would be able to figure out, but the other two only mom would know,” Max testified.

    Max never got a response to those questions.

    Golyar blamed burglary, arson on the woman she killed, prosecutors say

    http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/goly...eee636a59.html

    It seemed Shanna Golyar was living a double life.

    She was dating two men at the same time: one for his money and the other for his love.

    The one who often paid Golyar’s utility bills, Todd Butterbaugh, didn’t know about the other guy, David Kroupa, until authorities told Butterbaugh more than two years after they had started dating.

    But prosecutors also argue that Golyar was living a third life: posing as Cari Farver, who was the alleged source of harassment, vandalism and arson against Golyar, according to Golyar.

    “When this stuff happened, that was the go-to explanation,” Butterbaugh testified Friday, the third day of Golyar’s trial.
    Golyar was in the process of moving from her Omaha home into Butterbaugh’s Council Bluffs home because she was being evicted, a detail she later left out when talking to authorities.

    Upon opening her home’s front door on Aug. 17, 2013, she encountered smoke and called 911.

    Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, which didn’t injure any humans but killed Golyar’s two dogs, a cat and a snake.

    Captain Mark Sidener, one of the first firefighters on the scene, saw a gas can in the living room. In the basement, he also noticed several separated burn areas.

    “(That) threw out a huge red flag. This isn’t normal, to find a gas can,” Sidener had testified. “Fire doesn’t start in different areas unless it’s made to start in different areas.”

    Golyar told McClanahan that Kroupa received an email allegedly from Farver. She showed McClanahan a copy of the email on her phone, which contained multiple threats, including, “Hope you and your kids burn to death.”

    Harassing messages from person claiming to be missing woman kept coming for years, man testifies at murder trial

    http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/hara...ee64c416c.html

    For roughly four years, David Kroupa was harassed daily by a steady barrage of texts and emails, seemingly from a woman he had dated for just two weeks.

    Some threatened him or the people he knew. Others would claim that the woman was outside his apartment or workplace, with photos to prove it.

    Kroupa unwittingly had found himself at the center of an obsession. But it wasn’t Farver who had become obsessed. It was another woman he had dated, authorities allege, Shanna Golyar.

    At Golyar’s trial Monday, Kroupa read aloud a tiny percentage of the roughly 12,000 emails he purportedly received from Farver since he last saw her on Nov. 13, 2012. Authorities say Golyar concocted them.

    The nearly 80 emails that Kroupa read out loud vacillated from obsessive and controlling (“I would follow you to the ends of the world. Dave is mine.”) to stalker behavior, expletive-ridden threats and graphic images. One email asked Kroupa how to find a hit man to kill Golyar and had a photo attached of an unknown bloodied dead woman.

    He also received thousands of texts, from more than 25 phone numbers. Kroupa saved the numbers to his phone contacts as Cari 1 through Cari 18, and even assigned one number the name “Crazy Cari.”
    One of the strangest emails to Kroupa was sent in January 2013 and included a photo of a bound and gagged woman in a trunk of a vehicle.

    “You will dump (Golyar), and you will start seeing me again that (sic) it no arguments about it,” the email stated. “If you don’t agree she will stay in my trunk and since no one knows my car you won’t find her.”

    Prosecutors have said they will present evidence that Golyar took the photos of herself in the trunk — in various positions to make sure her face was hidden just enough to be mysterious.
