The Remarkable Recovery of the Girl Stabbed 19 Times for 'Slender Man'

The then-12-year-old — who just celebrated her birthday on Friday — had been blindsided by the shocking attack. It took place the morning after a sleepover at pal Morgan Geyser’s, along with Morgan’s friend Anissa Weier, both 12 at the time. The duo lured Payton into the woods by telling her they were going to play hide and seek, then they tried to murder her, viciously stabbing her with a five-inch-wide kitchen knife and wounding her arms, legs, diaphragm, liver, stomach, and chest.





The girls, both in custody and charged with first-degree attempted homicide, had reportedly planned the attack for months in a disturbing attempt to gain favor with — and reprieve for their families from — the fictional horror story kidnapper “Slender Man,” whom Payton says the two believed was real.
