By now, you’ve heard about Slenderman, the fictional character that two Wisconsin girls are claiming made them stab someone almost to death.

But do you REALLY know who Slenderman is???

Be forewarned — this all adds a whole new layer of horror to this already sad, sad story…

The legend of Slenderman started on a comedy website called Something Awful in June 2009, and people photoshoped him into pictures.

From there, the story spun out of control and became an urban legend.

But there is no Slenderman.

The 6-15 ft creature has no definable facial features, and is weird since he’s usually illustrated around young kids! Oh, and sometimes he has tentacles too!

Since Slenderman is a total creep, horror enthusiasts began to take the picture and create stories behind it.

THIS is where the Wisconsin girls sadly got their information from.

However, since this creation, which is also called The Tall Man or The Thin Man, hit the Internet, people have claimed to see him in various places!

According to legend, he also has scary powers, sometimes torturing his targets with mind control!

The girls responsible for the stabbing were clearly influenced by the horror stories surrounding the myth, since they mentioned going to his mansion, which isn’t a part of the original Slenderman legend.

In all, it’s just an extremely tragic event that’s an example of when our imaginations get the best of us!
