On the evening of May 30th, 2014, three adolescent friends, Anissa Weier, Morgan Geyser, and Payton Leutner whose friends called, “Bella,” all spent the night playing games and celebrating Morgan’s 12th birthday. The next morning, Anissa and Morgan tried to stab Bella to death in a nearby forest to appease a dark figure known only as Slender Man. What is the nature of insanity? How is the magical thinking of children often influenced by mass media? How did a random creation by a 29-year-old for a website contest manage to capture the imagination of Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser so completely? Join us this week as Drs. Micono and Morelos explore the chilling case of the Slender Man Stabbing, by listener request!
