Dee Dee Blancharde’s death was chillingly announced publicly on the Facebook profile she shared with her daughter Gypsy Blancharde.
That Bitch is dead!
Followed by a comment from the same shared account.
I fucken SLASHED THAT FAT PIG AND RAPED HER SWEET INNOCENT DAUGHTER…HER SCREAM WAS SOOOO FUCKEN LOUD LOL.
The bizarre Facebook post led friends and neighbors to check the family’s home, and their worst fears came true - 48-year-old Dee Dee Blancharde was lying on the floor, stabbed to death. Both, daughter Gypsy Blancharde and her boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn, were arrested after Gypsy was reported missing, with thousands of dollars stolen from Dee Dee’s safe.
Gypsy told police that she cleaned up the blood using baby wipes, then called a cab to get a lift with Godejohn up from the house. She also claimed that the Facebook posts she made were so that her mother’s dead body would be discovered more quickly. According to police, Gypsy and Godejohn conspired the murder on Facebook. The couple met on a Christian dating site and had been in an online relationship for about two years, but never met in person.
Neighbors knew Gypsy as a handicapped 19-year-old, who suffered from leukemia and muscular dystrophy. It turned out that none of it was true. Shortly after police arrested the couple, they discovered that Gypsy was able to could walk without a wheelchair. Even her age is under consideration, police suspecting she could be old as 23. Dee Dee Blancharde’s nephew, Bobby Pitre, told that Dee Dee imprisoned Gypsy, forced her to shave her head, use a wheelchair, and take seizure medicine that made her teeth fall out.
The whole saga might be part of bigger scam, the Blanchardes, who lived in a Habitat for Humanity home, told neighbors in Missouri that Hurricane Katrina had destroyed their house in Louisiana.
