Two US 12-Year-Olds Stabbed Their Classmate 19 Times’ To Prove ‘Slender Man’ Myth Was Real
Two 12-year-old girls been accused of viciously stabbing a classmate 19 times have been identified for the first time since they first told the police they plotted the murder for months. Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier face attempted murder charges after attacking their friend. They said they committed the crime because they wanted to join the cult of the ‘Slender Man’ after reading about him online.
‘Slender Man doesn’t exist. It’s a mythological horror creature that was created by a website in 2009. The gholish child killer has since become a viral sensation.
The girls told investigators that they believed the Slender Man was real and they wanted to prove it by slaughtering their friend after inviting her for a sleepover in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha, Wisconsin.
One girl held the victim down and the other stabbed her 19 times. It is not clear which one held the victim down and which had the knife. One of the girls told detectives she regretted it and the other said she was sorry.
