YikesGypsy Rose Blanchard’s Facebook Post About Her Dead Mother From 2015 Was Never Deleted
Well, this is super creepy. Back before Dee Dee Blanchard was murdered by Nick Godejohn, she and her daughter, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, had a joint Facebook account. In fact, the account still exists to this day. But after Dee Dee was killed, Gypsy left a message on the page — and that post also still exists on the account as of April 2019.
Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose once shared a Facebook page combining both their names: “Dee Gyp Blancharde.” It’s still up on the social media platform, but now, it’s been memorialized. The page is mostly home to a few old photos of Gypsy as well as some random re-posts and links. However, a chilling message still remains at the top of the page — it reads “That Bitch is dead!” and was one of several clues that lead authorities to find Godejohn and Gypsy after Dee Dee was stabbed to death in her own bed.
The post is from June 14, 2015 — the day Dee Dee was murdered. The Washington Post reported in November 2018 that the post attracted attention and prompted family friends to investigate along with the police, eventually leading them to Dee Dee’s body. According to Biography, Gypsy admitted to making the post because she wanted her mother’s body to be found. It worked, and before long, the police tracked Gypsy and Godejohn down and they were charged with Dee Dee’s murder.
In July 2016, Gypsy made a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge in exchange for a 10-year sentence. Godejohn was found guilty in November 2018 of first-degree murder for being a co-conspirator to the murder of Gypsy’s mother. He was found guilty of stabbing Dee Dee — although Blanchard actually stole the knife used to kill Dee Dee and gave it to Godejohn — according to the Springfield News-Leader.
Gypsy felt trapped with her mother, who acted as though her daughter had various serious illnesses her whole life. She apparently believed her mother dying was her only way out. But there’s a good chance that if she wanted someone to find her body, she did feel some level of remorse for the crime. What’s more creepy is that the post that Gypsy made to lead investigators to Dee Dee is still posted publicly for anyone to see. We guess it’s true what they say — the internet really is forever.
