First day of seventh grade in Waukesha for Slenderman victim

'Slenderman' Stabbing Victim Returns to School


WAUKESHA (WITI) - A little girl, stabbed and left for dead in the woods in Waukesha by two girls who were supposedly her friends had a big day Tuesday, September 2nd. She headed back to school - for her first day of seventh grade.

The girl survived 19 stab wounds, and spent much of her summer recovering from the stabbing incident that occurred on May 31st.

After what she has been through, it is easy to understand why this little girl was ready to head back to school.

"May 31st of this year - this little girl gets lured into the woods and stabbed 19 times," the girl's family's spokesman Stephen Lyons said.

12-year-old Morgan Geyser and 12-year-old Anissa Weier have been charged as adults in the case - each facing a felony first-degree intentional homicide charge. The girls apparently stabbed the victim in order to appease Slenderman - a fictional online character.

"You saw the most horrific thing happen," Lyons said.

The little girl, stabbed 19 times, has had a stressful summer of surgeries, specialists and recovery.

"A typical week, for weeks at a time, eight or 10 doctors appointments," Lyons said.

On Tuesday, the little girl started seventh grade with a smile.

"Throughout the summer, the parents would write on a grocery list, and put down groceries, and at the bottom of the list she'd always write 'school supplies.' Every week: 'school supplies' - so she wanted to get back to school. She was excited about it," Lyons said.

Lyons says the girl is grateful to be getting on with her life as her healing continues.

"Now we're dealing with some of the emotional needs. This little girl is in therapy and so is her family. Rightfully so - and getting the help that they all need to address this horrific situation. This is one of the first chapters in a very long book, but having said that, we like where the book is headed," Lyons said.

As for her recovery, this little girl still has a long way to go. The girl's family continues to accept donations to cover the cost of her treatment - which could reach the $400,000 mark.

Don't come with that incompetent to stand trial stuff. They knew exactly what they were doing. They planned and plotted to kill this child. Try them and give them their just punishment. I would hate that such evil minds were lurking among my child.

Good for this little girl, that she has the courage to want to go back to school. Hopefully she will find new true friends and stay away from all forms of "social" media. The internet is way pout of control and children haaave way too much access to the entire media system.

I'm not sure, because her name was never released. But perhaps you could find something by googling 'slenderman victim fund'?

as horrible as the crime was, I do not approve of trying 12 year olds as "adults". They are not adults!

Do you feel the same no matter who the child was or where they lived? I happen to agree with you. But I believe this across the board. No matter who or what the child looks like.
