In a strange twisted tale of fantasy and deadly reality, two Wisconsin girls are being held for attempted murder. The two 12-year-old girls, Morgan E. Geyser and Anissa E. Weier, had been planning to murder their best friend for months according to law enforcement authorities. The young victim, whose identity is being withheld, was stabbed over 19 times by either one or both girls in a delusional attempt to meet a fictional horror character named “Slender Man.”

According to police Geyser allegedly stated that the “Slender Man is real and they must kill their friend in order to meet the fictional character from the land of “Creepy Pasta.”  In the world of “Creepy Pasta,” Slender Man is the leader and demands killings to show your dedication to him. The plan was to kill the victim during a sleepover by stabbing her in the neck after duct taping her mouth and then arrange the body to make it look like the victim was sleeping. They then planned to hike to Nicolet National Forest in northern Wisconsin and find the fictitious mansion of Slender Man.

But the plan did not turn out to be so neat in its execution. In fact it turned into a scene of blood, pain and chaos. After luring the victim to a local park bathroom, the two girls attacked and began stabbing their friend. When the victim fought back and escaped, they chased her down and allegedly told her to “be still so she could bleed more slowly and they would get help for her.” However the girls fled and the victim was found by a local bicyclist on the pavement. The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and was able to name her attackers.

Now Geyser and Weier are facing adult charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, with each facing up to 65 years in prison. The girls are being held on $500,000 bail each.

    This witchcraft sugar-coated as “entertainment for children”(Harry Potter for example) has these kids where they can’t even distinguish fact from fiction.

      Agree. Kids are desensitized to violence because it’s cloaked in the form of ‘fairy tales’. So sad.

      I remember wanting to read Harry Potter when I was little but my mom didn’t allow me to because it was about sorcery. One day I got it from the school library, read a few pages and somehow my mom found it eventhough I hid it but I guess it was God’s way of saying its not for me, and it wasn’t. I’m in my 20s now and looking back I was a very impressionable kid, and still got caught up in some bad things (violent dark anime shows and comics). People need to make sure to teach their children to not dwell in fantasy, the same thing goes for movies, music, celebrities etc.

    At 12 or 13, even when I didn’t like someone, I never thought to plot and plan killing them along with a friend This whole “they were trying to replicate some fairy tale crap” is BULLS$#! These kids knew damn well what they were doing, the issue is that these kids/young adults are spoiled, selfish, and have no self regard for human life!
