Gypsy Rose Blanchard Gets Released From Prison

(CTN News) – Gypsy Rose Blanchard, notorious for her involvement in the murder of her mother, is set to be released from prison on Thursday after serving over seven years.

She was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in July 2016 after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the death of her mother, Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchard. Gypsy’s former boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, is currently serving a life sentence for fatally stabbing Dee Dee.

For those unfamiliar with the case, which served as the inspiration for the Hulu series “The Act,” some experts believe that Gypsy was a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy.

This condition involves a parent, guardian, or caretaker fabricating symptoms to make it appear as though their child is ill.

Throughout her childhood, Gypsy Rose was subjected to the use of a wheelchair and unnecessary medical procedures. Dee Dee began falsely diagnosing Gypsy with various medical conditions shortly after her birth in 1991, initially claiming that the infant suffered from sleep apnea, as stated by attorneys.

Gypsy’s mother, Dee Dee, began claiming more serious illnesses like leukemia and muscular dystrophy when Gypsy was 8 years old. These conditions supposedly required her to use a wheelchair and feeding tube.

In September 2005, Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose moved from Louisiana to Aurora, Missouri, after Dee Dee claimed they were Hurricane Katrina victims and that Gypsy’s medical records were destroyed in the storm.

Their story received significant support, with free charity trips and generous amounts of money being offered to them. Habitat for Humanity even constructed an accessible house in Springfield, Missouri, complete with a wheelchair ramp.

When Gypsy Rose turned 23 in June 2015,

she arranged for Nicholas Godejohn, whom she had met on a Christian dating site, to come to Springfield and kill her mother, according to prosecutors.

Gypsy Rose claimed that she provided Godejohn with gloves, a knife, and duct tape, and while she hid in the bathroom, Godejohn entered Dee Dee’s bedroom and stabbed her 17 times. After the murder, Gypsy Rose and Godejohn fled to his home in Wisconsin, where they were captured a few days later.

Gypsy avoided a trial by accepting a plea deal, but she did testify during Godejohn’s trial. She admitted that the idea to kill her mother was hers and revealed that her relationship with Godejohn had been kept secret because Dee Dee had complete control over every aspect of her life.

It wasn’t until Gypsy was 19 that she discovered she was not sick, but it was only after her arrest that she fully comprehended the extent of her mother’s fabricated health conditions.

Godejohn’s defense argued he acted to protect Gypsy from Dee Dee’s abuse and was deeply infatuated with her. Gypsy will be released early on December 28th after serving 85% of her 10-year sentence.

She plans to publish an ebook called “Released: Conversations on the Eve of Freedom” on January 9, 2024.
