SlenderMan compelled young girl to stab mother.

#1 Posted by loco145 (10778 posts) -

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.

2)Slenderman game came LONG after the story behind it

3)Banning minecraft and SlenderMan would be stupid

No. I'm not a week late. This is another incident. Read before responding.

IT'S A CULT I TELL YOU! HE'S GONNA COME AFTER ALL OF US. WE'RE ALL DOOMED.

EXCUSE ME, MY CAPS LOCK BUTTON IS JAMMED.

Do these people actually think Slenderman is real, or are they doing these things knowing he is fake?

I wonder, maybe it's time for the website to kill Slenderman off (have him get shot or something, or have the Hulk whoop his butt). Maybe that would stop these people from doing these crazy things, but then again maybe it would give them even more motivation to do so.

@one_plum: It's not jammed. Slenderman is pressing it. Whatever you do, don't look!

Intuition? He just seems fake. A skinny foo' who lives in the woods and doesn't brew moonshine. Seems fake to me.

Might be a little insensitive, but at least she didn't quote a metal song before doing this gruesome act.

Per wikipedia: He is commonly described as very tall and thin with unnaturally long, tentacle-like arms (or merely tentacles),[2] which he can extend to intimidate or capture prey. He has a white, featureless head and appears to be wearing a dark suit and tie. The Slender Man is associated with the forest and has the ability to teleport.[16][17] Proximity to the Slender Man is often said to trigger a "Slender sickness"; a rapid onset of paranoia, nightmares and delusions accompanied by nosebleeds.

Seems legit. I can see why kids would be killing in the name of Slender Man. :|

Heh, I think they just added a age gate to the creepypasta website.

So much for little girls maturing faster than boys. They do the same stupid crap. Little crazy twats.

are all 12 year old girls retarded?

Stop blaming slender man, it's just a harmless urban legend like Big Foot. Blame the stupid parents for raising stupid kids and not teaching them the fundamentals of right and wrong.

Is this really any different than people killing/attacking people because god told them to?

Because it started as a gag on SomethingAwful for the purpose of trolling Paranormal boards?

#24 Posted by AutoPilotOn (8524 posts) -

I have never even heard of slender man now 12 year old girls every where want to kill in his name. Is the slender man story that strong it can make kids do these things?

#25 Posted by ssvegeta555 (2268 posts) -

The mom admitted her daughter has mental issues. I hope she doesn't ignore that and just solely blame her daughter's actions on slender man...

Don't be an idiot.

You'd think someone would've told them the difference between fiction and reality.

Your use of "god" (lower case) is correct. Whatever god told people to kill someone (if that's even legit), is purely manifested in their minds to carry out such acts. In that regard, it's similar to the slender man cases. These kids were warped into thinking a fictitious being made them commit these crimes.

That's my point. These type of attacks are nothing new. It's just the character associated with them has changed.

Another one of these?!

I think a more appropriate title would be:

"Young girl with mental illness stabbed mother".

I didn't want to write those things. Slenderman compelled me to. It's cool now. I think I even lost a few pounds during the process.
