FOX2 in St. Louis is reporting the woman is 19-year-old Gypsy Blancharde -- the daughter of a woman who was found dead in her Missouri home.

Blancharde’s 48-year-old mother Claudinnea “Dee Dee” Blancharde was found Sunday in her Springfield, Missouri home. Police say she was violently assaulted. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Police were called to the home in Missouri after concerned friends found what a strange Facebook update from the mother and daughter’s shared account, FOX2 reports.

We're told the Gypsy Blancharde has special needs.

Colleen Jones lives near Cherry and Edgewood in Big Bend. She can hardly believe what happened Monday morning.

"Really? Holy crap! Wow! It scared the kajeebers out of me! And they found her here," Jones said.

"There were like, millions of squad cars up at the school there. All the sudden I see all these officers with guns and rifles just charge at the neighbor's house saying 'get down, get down,'" Geraldine Pinterics said.

FOX6 News spoke with a woman who said she is the step-grandmother of Gypsy Blancharde's boyfriend. She says the boyfriend also has special needs. Both were taken in for questioning.
