The girls, both aged 12, have been charged as adults after allegedly luring a friend into a Waukesha, Wisc. park and savagely stabbing her to please a mythological creature named Slender Man which they learned about online, according to prosecutors.
Two 12-year-old girls have been charged as adults in the attempted murder of another 12-year-old girl whom prosecutors say was stabbed 19 times to please a mythological creature they learned about online.
The two girls, charged Monday with first-degree attempted homicide, face up to 60 years in prison if convicted in the savage Saturday morning attack in a Waukesha, Wisc. park, according to prosecutors.
According to a criminal complaint one of the two girls told a detective they were trying to become “proxies” of a mythological demon-like character called Slender Man, which they learned about on creepypasta.wikia.com, a website about horror stories and legends.
The slaughter of their friend, whom they baited after a sleep over, had been planned since at least December, one girl told a detective.
They said they invited the girl over Friday night and after failing to kill her that night lured her to a park in the morning where they played a game of hide-and-go-seek.
