This is a bone chilling story that you have to ask yourself, what am I teaching my kids?
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, Wis., 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 sleepover, 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.
