Gypsy Blancharde Missouri

This is a weird one. Gypsy lived in Missouri with her mother, Clauddinnea Blancharde, where the two existed on a stream of elaborate financial frauds. Investigations are still pending but it seems the family claimed to be hurricane Katrina victims from which they solicited donations and many neighbors thought Gypsy was suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. They never saw her out of her wheelchair and she seemed genuinely afflicted by the disease from which they received many donations.

Gypsy, 23, met Nicholas Godejohn, 26, online and the two fell in love. As the story goes so far, Gypsy talked him into killing her mother so the two could be together. Perhaps Clauddinnea was growing afraid that a new relationship for Gypsy meant an end to her many scams. Whatever the reason, the two murdered her on June 14 with several stab wounds.

They took several thousand dollars from a safe in the house and left the house in a cab. They wrapped up the murder weapon and mailed it to Nicholas's house in wisconsin and headed there themselves. Once they arrived, Gypsy made several Facebook posts indicated something had happened to her mother. Family and friends saw and notified police. POlice arrived to find her face down in her bed with multiple stab wounds in her back.

No one suspected the "disabled" daughter but she was nowhere to be found. Cyber forensics was able to trace her Facebook posts to her boyfriends house. Slowly, investigators have been sorting out this insane tale.
