'Inspired' by Slender Man, Two 12-Year-Old Girls Stab Friend 19 Times
Two 12-year-old girls from Wisconsin are being charged with first-degree murder after intentionally stabbing their friend to death, saying it was an offering to the internet fictional character Slender Man. If convicted, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier could get up to 65 years in prison. After obsessing over the internet urban legend created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen in 2009, the girls stabbed their friend 19 times, thinking it would appease Slender Man. According to peers, the girls plotted the murder months beforehand. They will be tried in Waukesha County Circuit Court as adults.
