Gypsy Rose Blanchard claims her boyfriend of three years, Nicholas Godejohn, helped her to plan and carry out her mother, Dee Dee’s, murder in June 2015.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?
Following an argument with Dee Dee over whether Gypsy could have a feeding tube removed that she didn’t need, she claims she asked Godejohn to kill her mother because she couldn’t do it herself. Godejohn, she says, took a bus to Missouri from his home in Wisconsin the next day and checked into a local hotel to wait for her instructions.
“I texted him when my mother went to sleep. I let him in the door. There were gloves waiting for him, plastic gloves, by the door,” she tells Dr. Phil. “I handed him the knife and he said, ‘Get your ass in the bathroom now.’ And I went in the bathroom, and closed the door behind me.”
Shortly after that, claims Gypsy, “I heard my mother scream for me.” How does she say she reacted?
Gypsy Rose Blanchard pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder and is currently serving a 10-year sentence. Her alleged accomplice, Nicholas Godejohn, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder. His trial is set for December 2017.
