An Ohio woman, who was recently attacked by 13-year-old daughter with a knife, said her daughter was inspired by internet horror meme Slenderman.
“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,” the woman said. “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 added.
The woman returned home one evening when her daughter attacked her in the kitchen, stabbing her multiple times. She sustained minor injuries in the attack, including cuts on her neck and face and a puncture wound on her back.
She explained that her daughter has mental issues and that her writings were dark, frequently mentioning demons, being insane, and “falling into darkness.”
Following the attack, she discovered evidence of her daughter’s obsession with Slenderman.
“We found things that she had written and she made reference to Slenderman. She also made references to killing,” the mother said. “She even created a world for Slenderman in the game Minecraft.”
The mother of the girl feels that her daughter came across Slenderman on the internet, and warns that parents need to be aware of what their children are doing when online.
Is time to ban SlenderMan and Minecraft, imo.
