Gypsy Blancharde is a young woman from Missouri who everyone in her neighborhood thought was confined to a wheelchair due to muscular dystrophy. It turns out Gypsy can walk, and kill. She and her boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, were arrested for killing Gypsy’s mother, Clauddinnea “Dee Dee” Blancharde. The 48-year-old mother was found stabbed to death in her bed.
The murder of Blancharde reveals a long financial fraud scheme. Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott said at a news conference this week that the family had "a history of soliciting donations from the public online." It's not certain if the Blanchardes were really victims of Hurricane Katrina. KOLR reports Dee Dee and Gypsy moved to the Ozarks after Katrina, eventually moving into a house built by Habitat for Humanity. Gypsy is somewhere between 19 to 23-years-old. She uses several dates of birth on public records.
