Seriously, what is going on? Just a week after two 12-year-old girls attempted to murder a classmate as an appeal to the fictional internet character Slender Man, a woman from Hamilton, Ohio, claims that she was recently attacked with a knife by her 13-year-old daughter — and that the child was obsessed with Slender Man as well. According to Raw Story:
“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.

This story is so full of WTF, I almost don’t know where to begin. Two 12-year-old girls — their names have been published elsewhere, but as they are minors, I am choosing not to — are accused of stabbing another 12-year-old girl 19 times and then leaving her for dead in a Wisconsin woods. CNN said the victim had to literally “crawl to her own rescue” and was found on the side of a road by two passerbys on bikes, who called the police. The little girl immediately told the police who was responsible for the attack, and the two accused girls were taken into custody. According to police, the two had been planning the attack on their friend/classmate for months, with the intention of killing her, in the hopes of impressing someone called “The Slender Man.”
Yeah. WTF. Keep reading »
A teenage girl in Mexico is accused of fatally stabbing her best friend to death because, police suspect, the friend had posted naked selfies photos the two had taken together to Facebook. Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez (left), 16, allegedly stabbed Anel Baez (right), also 16, a total of 65 times at Baez’s home in Guamúchil. Baez had come over to patch things up following a dispute over the naked photos, and police allege that after excusing herself to go to the bathroom, Gutierrez grabbed a knife in the kitchen and began stabbing Baez. She reportedly fled the scene and was arrested three days later at Baez’s funeral. According to Notus, Gutierrez had sent a threatening tweet (from a now-deleted account) to Baez in the weeks before the attack, writing, “It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times.” Police are expected to charge Gutierrez with murder later this week.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods … and also, try not to bite thy neighbor’s penis. Jason Martin, 41, of Kent, U.K., has been found guilty of biting neighbor Richard Henderson’s penis, allegedly “like a sandwich,” during a scuffle over Martin’s loud music. Martin must have really given it his all, because the attacker has a mouth full of, uh, only one or two teeth. Henderson’s girlfriend delivered a text message to Martin regarding the volume on his Xbox, which led to a physical altercation that left Henderson in need of stitches due to a fatal combination of soft pajamas and a headlock. Martin denied the charges tooth and nail, telling prosecutors he had just grabbed “around” Mr. Henderson. “The thought of putting a man’s penis in my mouth… well, it’s not for me. Not in a million years would I do it,” he told the court. “It was just a rat bite. I just grabbed into an area. I didn’t realize at the time it was his testicles.” [Daily Mail] [Portrait of man with angry expression via Shutterstock]
Dear Kenneth Webster Enlow,
Now, I do love a man who goes after what he wants. Initiative is hot! Motivation is sexy! The problem, though, is that you wanted to be a peeping tom inside a septic tank in the women’s restroom at a public park. Keep reading »
If you’ve seen the show “Hoarders” then you can easily understand why anything, even a human body, could stay hidden for a very, very long time in the home of a hoarder. So, you know where this story is headed: James Nichols reported his wife, Jo Ann Nichols of Poughkeepsie, New York, missing in December of 1985 after she did not show up for a beauty parlor appointment. He told police that he received a typed note from his wife and then talked to her on the phone three days after he reported her as missing. Nichols also told police that he found his wife’s car parked at a local shopping mall. After searching his house, police determined that Mr. Nichols had not had anything to do with his wife’s disappearance.
Oh, did I mention the amount of stuff they had to wade through in that home? According to neighbors, Mr. Nichols was an intense hoarder. He even had several dumpsters in his backyard for extra storage. The police also probably thought it was safe to assume that this was not an episode of “CSI”and didn’t check (or even know about) his false wall in the basement where he was hiding his wife’s body.
