The girl in the wheelchair was told she was critically ill. Her mother’s brutal murder exposed the truth.

When investigators arrested Gypsy, then 24, and her online boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, in Big Bend, Wis., in connection with the murder, it was just the first disorienting jolt. Police soon revealed that Gypsy was perfectly healthy. She could walk and never had cancer. Her ailments had been the product of Dee Dee’s imagination, a rare possible instance of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a mental condition where a parent grafts fictitious sicknesses onto a child.
