‘Slender Man’ Character Inspires Pre-teen Girls to Stab Friend 19 Times

Two pre-teen girls from southeastern Wisconsin stabbed their 12-year-old friend nearly to death in the woods to please a mythological creature named Slender Man, according to police.

As the middle-school friends played together in the woods on Saturday morning in a Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha, one of them grabbed a finch-inch blade carefully tucked inside her waistband, according to a criminal complaint. She and another girl held their friend down and stabbed her 19 times all over her body.

The knife barely missed an artery near her heart, coming “one millimeter away from certain death,” the complaint said.

The suspects reportedly left their friend behind to die, but the victim somehow managed to crawl out of the woods where a bicyclist found her covered in blood on the sidewalk. She remained in stable condition Monday, authorities said.

The two pre-teens appeared in Waukesha County court Monday and are being charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide. Bail was set at a whopping $500,000 each.

What makes the attack all the more concerning is how the girls came up with their wicked plan. They allegedly wanted to please an Internet meme known as the Slender Man.

The character originated from the website Creepypasta Wiki, which compiles tales of fictional horror; however the girls allegedly believed the Slender Man was real.

One of the girls allegedly told police they wanted to become “proxies” of the faceless character, and would have to prove their dedication with a murder, reported WGBA in Green Bay. They planned to take their victim’s body to a part of Nicolet National Forest in Wisconsin’s north woods, where Slender Man lives supposedly.

The girls had originally been conspiring to carry out the plan for months, but were finally able to complete their mission last weekend. One of the suspects was allowed to have two friends over for a sleepover for a birthday Friday. The following morning, they went to the woods and acted out on their twisted plan.

The victim was repeatedly stabbed in her torso, legs, and arms. One of the attackers reportedly showed some remorse later, investigators said.

“The bad part of me wanted her to die, the good part of me wanted her to live,” the girl said, according to the complaint.

The girls are looking to face up to 60 years in prison if convicted as adults, though their attorney could request the charges be brought to juvenile court instead. Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel told the Journal Sentinel he would resist such a move.

“It’s troubling when a person lashes out in anger,” Schimel said. “It’s more troubling when they lash out in cold blood. Isn’t that the worst kind of killer, the cold-blooded killer?”
