A woman spotted an abuse victim from a notorious murder case who ended up killing her own mum – in the background of her childhood pictures from Disney World.
Anna Kate H. went viral on TikTok for sharing the story of how she met Gypsy Rose Blanchard, now 29, when she was six years old – claiming her family had also spoken to her mother Clauddine Blanchard, also known as Dee Dee.
Clauddine's body was found by Green County police in Louisiana, the US, in June 2015 after she was murdered by her daughter, Gypsy, and her boyfriend.
The mum forced her daughter to go through treatments for conditions including leukemia, asthma, and muscular dystrophy, and brain damage caused by premature birth.
Dee Dee had an extreme case of Munchausen by proxy, a mental disorder where people fabricate or exaggerate the illness of someone in their care to get sympathy or attention.
Now, in a chilling series of videos, that have collectively gained over 10 million views, @annakateeh shows that she met Gypsy at Disneyland while her mother was lying about her conditions to Make-A-Wish and confining her daughter to a wheelchair.
Anna explained: "When her story came out on the news, my parents were like didn't we see her in Disney so my dad went back and looked at our old pictures and we saw her in the background.

"So I talked to my dad and he filled me in a little bit more about when we met Gypsy Rose. It turns out we actually met her two times when we were at Disney but I only have pictures from the second time.
"The second time we met her and Dee Dee we were in line for Cinderella's Royal Table. Dee Dee told my parents that Gypsy was really sick and she was there for the Make-A-Wish foundation for her birthday.

"She was actually 21-years-old at the time but we thought she was much younger."
Dee Dee controlled her daughter through physical and psychological abuse.
Gypsy later met a man online named Nicholas Godejohn who conspired with her in the killing of her mother as she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for allegedly giving him duct tape, gloves and a knife with the understanding of what he would use it for.

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison which she is now serving in Chillicothe Correctional Center.
Godejohn was charged with murder in the first degree and life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Following the sentencing, Gypsy told Buzzfeed, "I feel like I'm more free in prison, than with living with my mom. Because now, I'm allowed to just live like a normal woman."
