This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
That’s two for two.
Last month, one of the girls in the case of the Slender Man stabbings was ruled not competent to take the stand at trial. On Friday, the second defendant, Morgan Geyser, was also found to be not competent, after two evaluations.
Both 12-year-old Wisconsin girls are charged with first degree attempted murder after they stabbed their friend 19 times to please the fictional character Slender Man.
Dr. Brooke Lundbohm explained that Morgan’s behavior was unusual, and that she was nearly hysterically laughing inappropriately. She also talked about her belief in unicorns, and the Harry Potter character
Voldemort He Who Shall Not Be Named, whom she calls ‘Voldy,’ as she explained that he “gives her direction.” On top of that, Morgan also said she’s got Vulcan Mind Control.
However, with Dr. Kenneth Robbins, Morgan didn’t want to talk about Slender Man because she said he’d hurt her family. Though, she did tell the second doctor that she and the fictional character talk telepathically.
And what’s more, when the judge asked Morgan if she could assist her attorneys, she just shrugged, and played with her hair during the proceedings.
As for the other defendant, Anissa Weier, she hasn’t undergone any mental evaluations yet, at the non-request of her attorneys.
The good news is that their 12-year-old victim is doing a-okay and making a recovery. In fact, she’s been volunteering in an animal shelter all summer!
We’ll keep you posted with any more developments in this sad, sad case.
