The meme that caused murders has finally seen some justice. Several reported cases of stabbings have been attributed to the influence of the Slenderman. The meme came alive after a website held a competition for a terrifying modern myth to which a user submitted a faked photo of a group of children running away with a faceless tall willowy figure dressed in a suit standing behind them. He captioned the picture saying that the photographer had gone missing. As eery as it sounds, it was all posed but the story exploded there. The character eventually evolved to having tentacles on his back and being able to manipulate his limbs. He is said to lure children into the woods and brainwash them into doing anything.

Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier were locked under the "Slenderman spell" and were convicted of second degree attempted homicide in 2014. The two girls lured their classmate into the woods in Waukesha, a western suburb of Milwaukee and Geyser stabbed the girl 19 times as Weier stood to watch. The injured girl attempted to crawl out of the woods to safety and was found by a cyclist with stab wounds to her stomach, arms and legs. Earlier this week, Weier was sentenced to 25 years in a psychiatric facility after Geyser pleaded guilty to intentional attempted first degree homicide and was sentenced to 40 years in a psychiatric institution.

Weier made a statement before her final case stating that: "I do hold myself accountable for this and that I will do whatever I have to do to make sure I don't get any sort of delusion or whatever again. I want everybody involved to know I deeply regret everything that happened that day. I know that nothing I say is going to make this right and nothing I say is going to fix what I broke."

Many children have been convicted of crimes dedicated to the Slenderman and his huge internet following suggests that this won't be the last one.
