Hulu true crime 

Patricia Arquette and Joey King star in this adaptation of Michelle Dean’s true crime story which premieres its first two episodes March 20 on Hulu.

However, not everybody might remember the real blood-chilling story which was first told by Michelle Dean’s August 2016 Buzzfeed News piece, “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom Murdered.”

Real creepy story

Dee Dee had Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a condition that causes people to make up or induce illnesses in people they care for in order to get sympathy and attention. Dee Dee told people that Gypsy had leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, seizures, brain damage and learning disabilities.

She forced her to use a wheelchair and feeding tube when she needed neither. Dee Dee lied about Gypsy’s symptoms, leading to unnecessary surgeries and medication. She had fabricated the whole thing to keep her daughter under control through physical and psychological abuse. No one knew that Gypsy was actually a healthy child.

As a single mom raising an extremely ill child, Dee Dee got a lot of sympathy and donations.

As Gypsy got older and realized what her mother was doing, she tried to fight back. When she wouldn’t use her walking aids, Dee Dee would beat her. In a 20/20 interview last year, she said she tried to escape but Dee Dee chained her to bed.

Once Gypsy met a boyfriend online on the site ChristianSingles.com, Nick Godejohn.

Gypsy told Nick about everything and Nick was willing to murder Dee Dee to help Gypsy escape. In 2015, when Gypsy was 23, Nick stabbed Dee Dee to death in their Springfield home.
