Since the moment that we began on the Blanchard case Mad Ginger Entertainment (MGE) has been focused on social change. We believe our systems are terribly broken and it is our mission to help fix and renew these systems. Our beloved late Christina was a champion for these causes. We strongly feel she is still leading the charge.
We met Anne (name changed for safety) in 2017 when she applied as a psychology student to work on our investigative team dealing with the Gypsy Rose Blanchard case unfolding in her hometown. It became clear rather quickly that something terrible was happening in her personal life.
In 2018 Anne began trying to escape her husband and save the lives of her and her children but Law Enforcement in Springfield MO has not helped her. She and several witnesses have made numerous 911 calls, sent letters to the governor, contacted Dan Patterson the DA, and called DSS over and over. All it has gotten her is more abuse from the person she has been trying to report. In 2021 Anne filed for two restraining orders back to back. Once on Thursday and it was denied, Again on Friday and it was denied, and Saturday she ended up in the hospital from a suspected poisoning. The hospital released her while she was still out of her mind and suffering affects from whatever had been given to her and never once questioned the suspect.
In September of 2022 Anne showed up on Fancy’s doorstep weighing in at 77 lbs., dazed, confused, and barely alive. She fled the state after she suspected again that her husband was trying to kill her. Due to the way Anne was treated in her state she had no choice but to leave her two children behind so she could be alive to fight for them. She had no money, no clothes, no social security card, and no birth certificate because her abuser refused to allow her to take anything, including her son.
Anne’s story will be featured in our anchor true crime show on The GWN. Conversations with a Captive- The Psychological Murder of Anne will provide a heavy hitting, real-time investigation to unfold what happened to Amanda and her children and how the system failed them epically. Our first episode will premiere at our Friday night cocktail party, June 9, 2023 as well as live on our Network broadcasted to Roku, Amazon Fire Tv, Apple Tv, Smart Tv and Android Tv, and mobile apps at 8/9PM CST on Wednesday’s.
While Anne’s story may seem fantastical or unbelievable it honestly is not that rare. Alarming statistics indicate that, as you read this short sentence, a woman has become the victim of assault, most likely by someone they know. According to the Partnership Against Domestic Violence, every 9 seconds, another woman in the U.S. is beaten.
Every nine seconds.
One in four women in the U.S. will be targeted by an abusive partner in their lifetime. Female victims most commonly first experience domestic violence between the ages of 18-24 (38.6%), followed by age 11-17 (22.4%), age 35-44 (6.8%) and age 45+ (2.5%). Almost one out of five or 16.3% of murder victims in the U.S. were killed by an intimate partner; women account for two out of three murder victims killed by an intimate partner.
I recently told an officer on Anne’s case that she could have at any time been one of these statistics
We all watched as Gabby Petito was put in the back of a police vehicle and 3 days later she was dead. This same thing happened to Anne. She was told by two officers that she could either get back in the car with her children and abuser, go to a motel with no money, or identification, or go to jail. The only difference is that somehow by the grace of God, Anne survived.
Our mission is to ensure there are more Anne’s and less Gabby’s.
