Dee Dee shaved Gypsy’s head, forced her into a wheelchair, had some of her teeth removed and paraded her at charitable events as a sickly child. 

In July 2015, Godejohn stabbed Dee Dee 14 times in her bedroom in the family home in Springfield, Missouri. He and Gypsy were promptly arrested and both were sentenced to various prison terms in the following years. 

In an interview with ABC that aired in part on Good Morning America today, Gypsy said she was addicted to prescription pain killers when she and Godejohn, who she’d met online, concocted Dee Dee’s murder. 

‘I don’t believe my mother was a monster. She had a lot of demons herself that she was struggling with.

‘I didn’t want her dead, I just wanted out of my situation and I thought that was the only way out.

‘I share my story to be a cautionary tale so that the next person that might be in a situation like mine they don’t take the route that I did.’ 

She said she was ‘high’ when she instructed Godejohn to kill her mother, and had developed an addiction to pain medication. 

‘This is really hard to talk about because it took me down a really dark path. But I felt like it was my only way to cope for a time.

‘I don’t blame drugs, I don’t blame anything. I don’t make excuses. Now I’m sober, I haven’t used in four years and I don’t feel the need to.’

Godejohn remains behind bars serving a life sentence whereas Gypsy was released on December 28. 

She and Anderson are settling into their new life in Louisiana.  

Asked if it was fair that Godejohn should remain behind bars while she walks free, Gypsy said: ‘I am sure we both have a lot of regrets. 

‘All I can say is I did my time, he is doing his time for his part and I wish him well on his journey.’

She is not allowed to contact Godejohn – whose attorneys continue to fight for an appeal – while he remains behind bars. 

His attorneys filed their latest appeal this week following Gypsy’s release.  

In 2022, while still incarcerated, Gypsy married Ryan Anderson. 

Since her release, the pair have showcased their romance on social media, attracting praise from fans but harsh criticism from others. 

She has defended him against critics, and says they are now happy ‘enjoying’ their life. 

‘Of course I feel conflicted. Fame is not what I’m looking for. I always said I think I’m infamous and then I came out famous.

‘I’m a very shy person, I’m not doing anything that anyone else wouldn’t do,’ she said today in response to questions about their newfound social media fame.

The pair plan to start a family at some point in the future, she added. 

In a 2019 jail interview, Godejohn – who is autistic and had prior offenses for indecent exposure at the time of his 2015 arrest – said he wished he had never carried out the killing. 

‘If I had to change anything at all, of course, one of the obvious ones is that I would’ve ran away with Gypsy. I don’t want to be staying with a murder on my hands.

‘Being labeled as a killer … I don’t want to stay with that, but I’ll live with it. 

‘I want to let everyone know that I’m not this cold killer that doesn’t have any feelings. I’m a human being. 

‘Human beings make mistakes’ he told Oxygen in a documentary. 

Since her release, Gypsy has also accused her grandfather of sexually abusing her as a child. 

He insists it was the other way around, claiming that she tried to ‘touch him’ from the age of four, and that he always turned down her advances.
