Two twelve-year-old girls stabbed their friend 19 times in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The girls lured the victim, also 12, to the forest. The victim crawled to the road and was found by a bicyclist. The bicyclist then called 911. The girls had been working on their plan for months. Their motive for the stabbing was to please Slender Man, an online fictional evil character. The girls believed Slenderman was real and wanted to become his proxies. They wanted to prove their dedication to him by killing their friend. They had planned to cover her mouth with duck tape, stab her, and pull her covers over her during a sleepover. They later came up with a new plan to attack her while playing hide and go seek in the woods. The girls stabbed her in the woods while the victim yelled out “I hate you! I trusted you!” The girls fled after they told the victim that they would go get help. The two girls thought that she would die and that they would see Slenderman.
Once caught, Morgan Geyser said that it seemed necessary to kill her and that she did not feel any remorse. Geyser and Weier were charged as adults for attempted first-degree murder intentional homicide. Both girls have now been found to be unfit for trial. Geyser told police that she heard voices in her head and believed that she could talk to Slenderman.
