In an extremely awful course of events, two 12 yr old girls in Wisconsin plotted for months to kill one of their classmates. They lured the girl into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. Luckily the victim was able to escape and find help and is currently in the hospital.
The girls claim that they did this for "Slenderman" who is a character that has made the rounds on the internet in urban legend style stories and memes. They planned to murder their classmate to prove they were worthy to live in his mansion that they believed to be in rural Wisconsin. These two girls were obviously horribly disturbed and couldn't draw the line between fantasy and reality.
Both of the attackers are being tried as adults for this crime. CLICK HERE to read more.
