Mommy Dead and Dearest, a 2017 crime documentary film by Erin Lee Carr exploring the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard in 2015.


On June 14, 2015, Blanchard's body was found on a bed in a pool of blood and had been there for at least a couple of days. Blanchard's daughter, Gypsy Rose, was missing which was a concern for police because even though she was 23-years-old at the time she had the mental age of a seven-year-old due to a number of medical conditions.


To cut a long story short, Gypsy Rose apparently suffered abuse from her mother for years. Ultimately this ended in her getting her boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn to murder her mother. Gypsy was sentenced to 10 years in prison for second-degree murder and will be eligible for parole in 2024. Godejohn is due to go on trial in November 2018.
