Daughter Kills Abusive Mother, Posts On Facebook 'The B---- Is Dead'

A young Missouri woman is guilty of murder after she and her boyfriend conspired to kill her mother. The young woman says her mother forced her to pretend she was disabled for years and she couldn’t take it anymore.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard had been in a wheelchair for over a decade, but the 23-year-old didn’t need to be. Even her father, Rod Blanchard, thought his daughter was disabled, but it turns out it was all a hoax orchestrated by his ex-wife.

Dee Dee Blanchard, Gypsy Rose’s mother, forced her daughter to fake the disability and held the girl prisoner in her home. The 48-year-old Springfield mother is believed to have been suffering from Munchausen by Proxy syndrome. This is a psychological disorder in which a person pretends that an individual in their care is ill. People who suffer from Munchausen by Proxy have been known to take dangerous risks in making someone ill—usually a child—to get the sympathy and praise from everyone else.

Over the years, Dee Dee said Gypsy Rose had suffered from leukemia and muscular dystrophy so she could collect benefits and attention; but it was all a well-guarded lie. The child was forced to play along, and even Dee Dee’s ex-husband didn’t know.

“I really, genuinely believed that she had some issues,” Mr. Blanchard said. “Dee Dee was really good at convincing me that there was a problem. I never, ever can fathom that she was really in the hospitals, and the doctors wouldn’t have caught on to something at some point over the years.”

Gypsy Rose recruited her boyfriend in helping her stab her mother to death. She accepted a plea deal for second-degree murder and faces ten years in prison.

HBO has produced a documentary about the relationship between the mother and daughter, entitled, “Mommy Dead and Dearest.” It’s set to air on May 15.
