Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who pled guilty to murdering her abusive mother, gets released.

A Missouri correctional official informed CNN that Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who admitted to assisting her boyfriend kill her abusive mother, was paroled Thursday.

Blanchard pled guilty to second-degree murder in 2016 after confessing to convincing her boyfriend to knife her mother while she slept. After counsel discovered her mother's abuse, prosecutors sentenced her to 10 years in jail in a plea deal.

Blanchard suffered from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare condition in which a caretaker inflates a child's ailment to get attention. 

Dee Dee convinced others, including physicians, that her daughter had leukemia and muscular dystrophy, according to the HBO Max documentary “Mommy Dead and Dearest.” 

Blanchard admitted to being in the residence when Nicholas Godejohn, her lover, stabbed Dee Dee, failing to stop him, court records said.

Godejohn was sentenced to life without parole for murder in 2019. Dee Dee was stabbed and killed because Gypsy asked him to, according to court documents.

According to Missouri Department of Corrections spokesperson Karen Pojmann, “her original 10-year sentence started in June 2015, so.

Barring parole violations and other extenuating circumstances, it’s expected that she’ll be on parole supervision and reporting to a parole officer until June 2025.”
