In 2014, two 12 year old Wisconsin girls were implicated in a case that has been dubbed the “Slender Man Stabbing“. Allegedly, the girls stabbed a classmate 19 times in order to summon the popular fictional Creepypasta meme, “Slender Man”.
Doctors have evaluated one of the teens, Morgan Geyser and entered a Not Guilty plea for her on Friday. They say the teen “suffers from schizophrenia and oppositional defiant disorder and maintains relationships with imaginary characters.” (Daily Dot)
Last year, a judge decided that both girls would be tried as adults. If it turns out that Morgan Geyser is judged mentally fit to stand trial, she could face a prison sentence of up to 40 years.
Experts have testified that Geyser suffers from mental illness.
