Shocker: 12-year-old Schoolgirl Helps Her Friend Stab Her Classmate 19 Times...You Won't Believe Why


Anissa Weier helped a friend stab their classmate to please horror character the Slender Man, a court heard

A “deluded” schoolgirl helped a friend stab their classmate 19 times so the fictional Slender Man character would not slaughter her family, a court heard.

Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser were both 12 when they allegedly knifed Payton Leutner in a frenzied attack and left her for dead in woods to please the creepy figure.

Despite being severely injured, Payton, then 12, survived and crawled out of the woods in Wisconsin, US, where she was found by a cyclist with wounds to her chest, stomach and arms.

Weier, now 15, pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree homicide in August and is now on trial over whether she should be held criminally responsible or committed to a psychiatric hospital.

Her lawyers have claimed Weier was suffering from a mental illness at the time and “lost touch with reality”.

Defence attorney Joseph Smith Jr yesterday told Waukesha County Court: "Anissa's broken mind caused her to lose touch with reality.

"Anissa was under the command and control of a delusional disorder."

He played segments of Weier’s police interrogation in which she described a plot to kill Payton in order to become a proxy of Slender Man.

She described the internet character as tall and faceless with numerous tentacles.

"He could easily kill my whole family in three seconds," she told the detective.

Smith described Weier as a loner who struggled to fit in with her classmates and who found a friend in Geyser.

While Weier was dealing with her parents' divorce, teachers began noticing symptoms of depression, he said.

The schoolgirl developed a "delusional belief system" with Geyser and together they made a plan to kill Payton and become Slender Man's proxies, Smith said.

Although Weier did not physically stab Leutner, in her mind she knew it had to be done, Smith told jurors.

Waukesha County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Osborne told jurors that Weier went along with the attack to preserve her one and only friendship with Geyser.

He said Weier knew the stabbing was wrong because she twice declined to do it herself as originally planned.

Instead, Weier told Geyser to do it. "Go berserk," was the command, Mr Osborne said.

"They knew this was wrong. They understood what they were doing was wrong," Mr Osborne added.

Weier’s dad William said his daughter went through a difficult time after his divorce.

But he never saw anything to suggest she needed mental health care.
"In my opinion, she was a normal child," he said.

One of the girl’s former classmates, who was also interested in Slender Man, told the court she had discovered how to become the character’s servant - by killing a friend.

The girl, identified in court only by her initials, Kn, testified that Weier then told her: "Don't worry, it's not you."

Both Weier and Geyser were charged with being a party to attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

Weier struck a deal with prosecutors in August in which she pleaded guilty to being a party to attempted second-degree intentional homicide.

But she also pleaded not guilty due to mental illness of defect, setting up the trial on her mental status.

Judge Michael Bohren told jurors they must decide whether Weier had a mental illness at the time of the crime and whether she lacked the capacity to understand her wrongful conduct.

Psychologists testified at a previous court hearing that Weier suffered from persistent depression and a delusional disorder linked to schizotypy, a diminished ability to separate reality from fantasy.

At least 10 of the 12 jurors must agree on a verdict.

Geyser has pleaded not guilty to being a party to first-degree attempted homicide. Her trial is set to begin Oct. 9.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…

Everything you need to live well
The activities done by man to make life easier has depleted the ozone layer and endangered Planet earth due to pollution. Planet Earth has indicated through global warming the most visible sign of climate change. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), over the last century, sea levels have risen by between 10 and 25 centimeters, and carbon dioxide—the main cause of the greenhouse effect—is responsible for 85% of the increase in the Earth’s temperature over the last 10 years. To stop this negative effect and preserve the ozone layer, here are a few ways to check air pollution; Prevent bush burning In some rural areas bush burning is an easy way to prepare farmlands for cultivation. This is not only harmful to the soil but also the planet as well. Take precautions to avoid starting fires especially during the dry season. Buy organic products.
