Two schoolgirls of Wisconsin, in America, have been accused of luring a friend to a nearby forest and stabbing her 19 times with a knife to win the favour of a fictitious internet character.

The 12-year-old girls were fans of Slender Man, an online character in various online stories and games in which he spies on, abducts and harasses people, especially children.

He’s is described as a tall, slim, faceless man in a black suit.

The girls allegedly tried to kill their friend to win the favour of the Slender Man and become agents permitted to act on his behalf.

Because of the cold-blooded and premeditated nature of the crime the girls have been charged as adults with first-degree attempted murder. They’re being held in a corrective institution for juvenile offenders.

According to reports the girls had been planning the attack since February this year and were initially going to invite their friend to a pyjama party and kill her in her sleep or in the bathroom. They would then run away to Slender Man’s mansion.

They later decided to take their victim to a park but couldn’t bring themselves to kill her there, so they took her to a forest under the pretext of playing hide and seek.

The girls took turns stabbing their friend, then one girl took over and stabbed her repeatedly.

The victim managed to get to a road, where a cyclist found her. She’s in a stable condition in hospital and is recovering. According to reports the families of the two girls can’t raise the R5,37 million bail and are expected to undergo psychological evaluation soon. Source: Huffington Post, NZ Herald.
