By all accounts Dee Dee Blanchard and her daughter Gypsy Rose were an unfortunate pair - a single mom, forced to care for her daughter and her many illnesses.

But things aren't always as they appear, and what neighbors didn't suspect was one of the worse cases of Munchausen syndrome by proxy was occurring right across the street.
