Drew Cary "able to finally move on" after sentencing of fiancée's killer

 March 7, 2024

Actor Drew Cary was struck by tragedy four years ago when his former fiancée Amie Harwick was thrown to her death from a third-floor balcony.

Yet according to Entertainment Weekly, the Hollywood star found closure now that the man who murdered her has been convicted. 

Harwick's ex-boyfriend given life sentence

The magazine noted in an article published on Wednesday that Gareth Pursehouse was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole last month.

That development came after the 45-year-old was found guilty in September by a Los Angeles County of murder and first-degree residential burglary.

Prosecutors recounted how Pursehouse, who had previously dated Harwick, broke into her Hollywood Hills home on February 15, 2020. She had previously filed two restraining orders against him.

Carey spoke about the crime during a recent interview with People magazine, telling the publication, "I can barely remember the guy's name — that's how much I've put him out of my life."

"She's always with me"

"But ever since the final sentencing, it feels like we've all let out a breath and are able to finally move on," the celebrity explained.

"The whole process is over now, and there's nothing else to be done and nothing else to worry about… Just speaking just for myself, it's been quite a load off," he continued.

"She's with me always," Carey said of Harwick, whose pictures remain in his home as well as his dressing room on "The Price is Right."

"A lot of times I'll feel like I'll be thinking things through, and it’s almost like I can hear her voice saying, 'Well, really, it's because of this and that.' It’s really nice, honestly," he said.

Carey took a break from show following murder

Entertainment Weekly recalled how Carey took a hiatus from "The Price is Right" following Harwick's murder, something he addressed in a statement.

"Amie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime. She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist," Carey declared.

" I am overcome with grief. I would like to thank you in advance for giving myself and everyone who loved Amie privacy while we try to work through this tragic situation," he added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
