Daughter Stabs Mom With Knife in Another Attack Influenced by Slender Man

Posted in: , , ,

Another stabbing is being blamed on Slender Man, after two 12-year-olds were arrested last week for stabbing their friend 19 times in an effort to prove Slenderman was real [read here]. In this new attack, a 13-year-old girl stabbed her mother with a knife for the same reason.

The mother said that her 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with the fictional character Slender Man and allegedly attacked her with a knife in the kitchen of their home. The mother said her daughter has mental health issues but that she never imagined anything like this would happen.The daughter is in the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.

According to WLWT,

“She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask, she was someone else during that attack,” the mother said.

“I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,” she said.

The mother said her daughter’s writings and drawings have always been dark. They referenced demons, being insane and falling into darkness.

“(She) mentioned playing a role. (I) got the feeling she was playing a role. It didn't feel like her at all,” the mother said.

The mother said that after hearing about the two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls allegedly stabbing their friend to please Slender Man, she thinks her daughter was under the same influence.

“We found things that she had written and she made reference to Slender Man. She also made references to killing,” the mother said. “She even created a world for Slender Man in the game mine craft.”

Slender Man stories often feature him stalking or traumatizing people.

“We do have to police what they do and what they read,” the mother said.

The girl is facing charges as a juvenile. Her family has not allowed to discuss the case with her but her mother said she told other people that she does not remember the attack.

Her mother was treated for minor injuries in the attack, including cuts on her neck and face and a puncture wound on her back.
I must confess, before these crimes, I had never heard of Slenderman and his stories.

Meanwhile the man who created Slenderman and an administrator of a website that collected the works have expressed their condolences to a 12-year-old girl who was stabbed by two fans and to others affected by the tragedy.

A spokeswoman for Slenderman creator Eric Knudsen and an administrator for the site told CBS they have been overwhelmed with calls and messages since news broke that the girls charged in the weekend stabbing told police they wanted to curry favor with Slenderman and prove he was real.

"I am deeply saddened by the tragedy in Wisconsin and my heart goes out to the families of those affected by this terrible act," Knudsen said in a statement released by spokeswoman Sue Procko.

Creepypasta administrator David Morales said the site clearly states the stories there are fiction and its rules bar use by anyone under 13.

"We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent," Morales wrote in an email.

He noted that administrators have not allowed any new Slenderman stories to be posted since 2012 because they want users to come up with fresh ideas. Since Knudsen posted the first Slenderman stories and photos in an online forum in 2009, hundreds of other writers, artists and programmers have created horror stories featuring the tall, thin, faceless man in a black suit.

"Overall, the community has deep condolences to the family of the victim and all those who were involved," Morales wrote.
