    From internet hoax to urban legend to real life danger, ABC News has your coverage of the Slender Man saga.

The girls claim they were trying to please the online demonic creature, Slender Man. See the slender man interrogation, and interviews surrounding the slender man stabbing case.

      WHATS THE MEANING OF Life.. ? ? ? People ask me all the time -What is the meaning of life? Is it about having a fancy car, a big house, a great job or even being famous? No.! - Ok. Then it’s about being in love having a wife, kids- family and the white picked fence ya-ya...thats it.! No.!.. Ok. Then GOOD HEALTH -NO..! -Tell that to someone who’s on there death bed-NO..! Life is all about realizing that this is just a temporary stop in our journey to Heaven… All the highs life has to offer does Not compare with what God has planned for us and the Lows in life only strengthens our desire for Heaven…. So Please….. TURN TO JESUS- life is to short-and tomorrow my be to late…. Pastor Johnny ray..

      Theres no better comfort in the world than kittens. The first crack you have to make in the battle charred and protective shell around your feelings is the hardest one. A bundle of kittens, one that need you, that you can help and make happy is the most effective method to break open the shell a little bit and let that first ray of hope in. Especially for children

Truly inspiring. And I really hope she lives a good healthy life, and that those two girls who did that to her learn that they really shouldn’t hurt people ever, especially not for something you see online.

    I know that this girl went through unimaginable horror and pain, but pretty much nobody is talking about the actual writer of the Slenderman creepypasta. He definitely did not want any of this, and probably feels so darn horrible that this happened, because he only tried to create a mostly innocent story, which devolved into a horrible crime.

    I am glad Payton has recovered and is able to live her life happily now. After watching the interrogation for the 2 girls it is very interesting to see why they did it. Mental illness was a clear factor in it, and their obsession over creepypasta's definitely didn't help. Morgan had schizophrenia, which is incredibly rare within children. If you have seen the interrogation for Morgan, she didn't really seem to be the leader, and barely even mentioned slender while Anissa immediately told her interrogator about multiple creepypastas. If those two were never friends or if someone had intervened with their obsession (like their parents, morgan's parents knew fully about her obsession because they knew about her journal), I don't think any of this would have happened.

      Her impressive empathy is literal.
      It’s worth more than gold for those who are enabled to live a far better life because of empathy.
      Gold doesn’t do that. Diamonds and gold both literally has cost lives.
      Empathy has saved them.

    This seems like a clear case of "folly of two" also known as madness shared by two individuals. It's the scenario where two isolated individuals share delusions and they form basically an echo chamber for their crazy ideas. If the girl who came up with the idea didn't have such a close friend to affirm her beliefs she probably never would have gone through with her crazy plan. I honestly believe that this was the case.
    The alternative possibility is that one of the girls was manipulated the more suggestible girl into going along with her evil plan and that the slender story was just an excuse to carry out a violent act against their "friend" who they might have secretly resented. In that kind of scenario I'd say one should have been tried as a criminal while the other maybe should get mental help.

      I could see it. Morgan has schizophrenia and I could see it being easy for another 12 year old to believe the delusions. Especially with how the creepypasta community was at the time (a lot of people really believed they were real and not just characters)

    • Neleni

      That's similar assumption I had after looking into this case. This video doesn't do the whole case justice; Morgan is mentally ill. And from the interrogation footage of Anisa she clearly seems like a manipulator. This whole case is fascinating, one of my favorite cases.
      Morgan did get state mental care and Anissa convicted.
