NXIVM trial witness: Keith Raniere operated like L. Ron Hubbard and other cult crackpots - 2019-06-13
Wednesday morning saw the last bit of direct testimony from investigator Richard Guerci. He testified that the total charges to Pam Cafritz's credit card were approximately $135,000.
In cross-examination, Keith Raniere's attorney Marc Agnifilo displayed Pam's will. The will showed that not only was Keith executor of the estate, he was also the sole beneficiary. In direct testimony, after a certain point, card records showed purchases of baby-related items. It was not said in court, but presumably these were for the baby Keith fathered with Mariana. Agnifilo showed charges to Pam's card, before her death, to purchase plane tickets for Mariana. There were also plane tickets purchased for Keith, before Pam's death. Keith, Mariana, and Pam lived in the same house. There were utility bill payments on the card both before and after Pam's death.
Keith had signed checks from Pam's bank account. Agnifilo asked if the bank had rejected any of these checks. The agent said, not to his knowledge. Did Keith ever sign Pam's name on a check? Gureci: Not to my knowledge.
