On an engrossing, provocative episode of After Hours AM/The Criminal Code — True Crime with hosts Joel Sturgis, Eric Olsen, and secret weapon, forensic psychologist Dr. Clarissa Cole — we explore the shocking, emotionally complex murder of Dee Dee Blanchard with filmmaker Erin Lee Carr, whose celebrated Mommy Dead and Dearest documentary about the case recently premiered on HBO. We speak with Erin in Hour 2; at Hour 1, Clarissa guides us through the week’s most notable True Crime stories and a look at the dumbest criminals.

Things are not always as they appear, especially in the case of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose, and what starts out as a grisly tale of matricide morphs into a rabbit hole of deception. Child abuse, mental illness and forbidden love converge in this mystery of a mother and daughter who were thought to be living a fairy tale life that turned out to be a living nightmare. Dee Dee Blanchard and her ailing, wheelchair-bound daughter, Gypsy Rose, were beloved members of Springfield, Mo., but the tight-knit community was rocked when Dee Dee was found murdered in her home and Gypsy was missing.
