- Man:
Hey, Gypsy, this is Stan.

- Stanley Hancock: Hi, Gypsy.

- I'll let you guys talk.

- Hi, I'm Det. Hancock.

I'm with Greene County

Sheriff's Office.

- How are you today?

- Gypsy:
I'm doing good.



You need to be honest with me.

And if you're involved in anything

that I'm about ready to tell you,

then you need to tell me, okay?

- Absolutely.

- Um, your mom's dead, okay?

Now, what I want to ask you--

- Wait, what, what?

- Your mom's passed away, okay?

She's deceased, all right?

Now, what I want to ask you--

did you have involvement in this?

- Okay.

- No, no--

Hang on, listen to me for just

a second, okay?

- Uh-huh.

- What happened with your mom,

that night?


I don't know what happened

with my mom at all.

- Help me. Please help me.

- Okay, you...

Just listen to me, okay, sweetheart?

You know what happened to

your mom, okay?

And I know that you know.

You think that it's me?

Why would you think that it's me?

I have always loved my mom.

My mom and I are best friends.

Listen to me.

Please don't dig yourself in this hole,

and that's what you're doing.

I really love my mom.

- I know you do.

- Please.

I know you-- sweetheart,

I know you love your mom.

I have no doubt that you love your mom.

But why did Nick hurt her?

Now's the time to be truthful,


No more lies.

- Did you kill your mom?

- Gypsy:
No. No, sir.

Did you help Nicholas kill

your mom?

Ladies and gentlemen,

please welcome a cancer survivor

and passionate young lady,

Gypsy Rose Blanchard

and her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard

from Springfield, Missouri,

to the stage.

[Six years earlier]

I believe

There are angels among us

Sent down to us

From somewhere up above

They come to you and me

In our darkest hours.

Dee Dee:
Thank you, my sweetie.

I've always said

you're the reason I was born to

be your mama.


Breaking news this morning.

48-year-old Dee Dee Blanchard

was found dead inside her home.

Her 19-year-old daughter Gypsy

is still considered missing.

Jim Arnott:
It all started

receiving a call on June 14th

to check the well-being of a family.

[Greene County Sheriff]

Linda Ong:
Gypsy and Dee Dee

were Hurricane Katrina survivors.

Everybody believed that they were

coming here

to the Ozarks to make a better life.

[Local news reporter

Springfield, MO]

There was a Facebook post

that was quite alarming.

We were actually thinking that it was

somebody that hacked into Facebook

and it wasn't actually a threat.

[WHAT?!!! Did your FB get hacked?

I have never heard you talk like that.]

Elaine Scherer:
Gypsy was in a


She had leukaemia and she was

having seizures

[Community Service Worker Aurora, MO]

and she had to be tube-fed.

As the sheriff,

my primary responsibility

at that time was really to ensure

that her well-being was okay.

Whatever they were going through

was incredibly hard for them,

especially with the medical conditions.

[Gypsy's neighbor and friend]

And so, everybody gathered around them

and would try to help them out

as much as possible.

It just proves that happy endings

are not just in fairy tales,

they're real.

The Facebook post was quote...

"The b*tch is dead."

And another post stating,

"I f***ing slashed that fat pig

and raped her sweet, innocent daughter.

Her scream was so f***ing loud, LOL."
