Gypsy R. Blancharde

Gypsy R. Blancharde

Springfield, Mo. — Gypsy R. Blancharde, 23, charged with the murder of Dee Dee Blancharde, her mother, is scheduled to appear before Greene County Circuit Court Judge J. Ronald Carrier at 8 a.m. Friday, June 26. Her appearance is scheduled as a hearing.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Blancharde was still incarcerated in Waukesha County Jail in Waukesha, Wis. She is being held on a million dollar bond. Her boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, 26, of Big Bend, Wis., is set for an extradition hearing on June 29. Gypsy last week waived her extradition and agreed to be returned to Greene County.
The pair are accused of murdering her mother on or about June 9. They left the state, and the murder wasn’t discovered until a Facebook post on June 14. The post was traced to Godejohn’s home in Big Bend, and Waukesha County police apprehended Gypsy and him there.
The murder was almost overshadowed by the bizarre story that then surfaced about Gypsy and her mother. Since childhood, Gypsy had been portrayed as a sick child, unable to walk, suffering from various diseases including Leukemia and Muscular Dystrophy. The pair made their living on donations, and they lived in a Habitat for Humanity house,
And Gypsy and her mother were many times the center of attention at medical events. Gypsy as it turns out was not wheelchair bound and not an invalid.
Gypsy is charged with first degree murder and armed criminal action. So is Godejohn.

Gypsy is being represented by Springfield public defender Michael Stanfield. Prosecuting attorney is John D. Patterson.
