Gypsy Rose's ex-boyfriend Nick Godejohn has revealed the thought that went through his head right before murdering her mother.
Nick is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Gypsy Rose's mum Dee Dee Blanchard, after stabbing her several times in 2015.
Police had been notified of a potential problem after a number of concerning posts were made to the Facebook account that Dee Dee and her daughter Gypsy Rose shared, one of them reading 'that b**ch is dead'.
Not long after investigations began, Gypsy Rose and Nick Godejohn were arrested for Dee Dee's murder, when new information about their relationship came to light.
Although Dee Dee had claimed that her daughter suffered from severe health problems and had the cognitive age of a seven-year-old, medics found there was absolutely nothing wrong with Gypsy.
It turned out that Gypsy had suffered physical and psychological abuse from her mother, who was suspected of having Munchausen by proxy syndrome and made up fake symptoms to make her child look sick.
Police determined that Gypsy had convinced her boyfriend Nick to come over to her house and kill her mother.
While Gypsy took a plea bargain deal of a second degree murder charge and ten years in prison, Nick Godejohn was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life behind bars.
In an interview from prison, Nick explained that right before the murder, two opposing thoughts were running through his mind.
"One was a benevolent thought, one was a malevolent thought. It was almost like having a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other," he shared.
"Basically what happened was, I had one thought in my mind - I don't know where it appeared, I guess you could call it God or an angel - basically saying: 'Take her and run.'
"That was the benevolent thought. 'Take her and run', as if I was somehow going to get away with it if I ran away with her. As If somehow we were able to keep her mom at bay better than she was able to in the past.
"However, the other thought that came on my mind was - because the darker part of me was also in love with the darker part of her - the thought was: 'This b**ch is dead.'
"'[I'm] not letting her get between me and [Gypsy] because this b**ch is dead', is basically what the thought was."
"Unfortunately I listened to my darker side because I wanted to be with her. I wanted to believe what she was saying.
"Unfortunately, I should have listened to my other part of me, which is ironic because I was trying to influence her to go with it but she never went with it. She never wanted to run away."
