A second stabbing has been linked to creepy internet meme, Slender Man. A girl, 13, allegedly attacked her own mother with a kitchen knife in their family home after writing her own stories about him. Scary.
An Ohio mother is speaking out about her 13-year-old daughter’s alleged attempt at murder in the name of Slender Man, a fictional character created online in 2009. Before she allegedly attacked her mother, the girl reportedly wrote her own short stories, and even created a “world” for Slender Man while playing a popular online game.
Slender Man: Second Stabbing Linked To Creepy Internet Meme
Believe it or not, a second stabbing may be connected to the Slender Man internet urban legend.
After hearing about the horrific stabbing of a 12-year-old girl in Wisconsin, an unidentified mother in Ohio believes that her daughter’s obsession with Slender Man may have been the reason she attempted murder.
“I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me. She was wearing a white mask, she had her hood up, and she had her hands covered with the sleeves, and the mask,” the distraught mother told WLWT on June 6.
During the attack, which left the mother with minor injuries on her neck and face, she claims her daughter was not herself.
“[…] mentioned playing a role, I got the feeling she was playing a role. It didn’t feel like her.”
Interestingly enough, the mother revealed that after the attack she found some very “dark” writings and drawings her daughter had made that referenced Slender Man. She also believes her daughter built an entire world for Slender Man to live in while she was playing a video game.
“She even had created a world for Slender Man in Minecraft. In that game, Minecraft.”
For those of you who don’t know what Minecraft is, it is an online game which allows users to gather resources and build structures.
“We do have to police what they do and what they read,” the mom stressed after discussing her daughter’s alleged attempt at killing her with a kitchen knife because of the fictional character she loved so much.
According to the report, the young girl has claimed that she does not remember much about the night she allegedly attacked her mother.
The young girl is currently facing charges and awaiting trial inside the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.
