20/20 “A Tangled Web” Summary

“20/20” reports on a twisted, fatal love triangle and the shocking truth on whether or not the stalker and victim are the same woman. After Cari Farver disappeared from her Iowa home, her friends and family received text messages from her number claiming she had embarked on a new life. Although skeptical of the texts, her loved ones could not prove they were illegitimate. At the same time, Dave Kroupa received a strange, sudden breakup message from Farver’s number after only dating her for a few weeks. Kroupa quickly regretted ever meeting Farver as he, his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Shanna “Liz” Golyar, and others in his life became the targets of obsessive, hateful messages from Farver’s number. Kroupa began to fear for his life as the message content escalated to stalking and threats. In a stunning twist, authorities began to suspect that Farver was dead and hadn’t sent any of the messages. Who was pretending to be his dead ex-girlfriend? The two-hour program untangles the complicated case, answering questions about what happened to Farver and who sent the messages. “20/20” features an in-depth interview with Leslie Rule, author of a book about Farver, A Tangled Web, and shares correspondence she received from Golyar about the story. The program also includes interviews with Kroupa; Nancy Raney, Farver’s mother; and Sgt. Jim Doty, Deputy Ryan Avis and Special Deputy Anthony Kava, who took “20/20” through their investigation step-by-step and revealed how they cracked the case. “20/20” airs Friday, Aug. 5 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
