On May 31, 2014, in Waukesha, Wisconsin, two 12-year-old girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, lured their best friend Payton Leutner into the woods and stabbed her 19 times.

They claimed it was in an attempt to become proxies of the fictional character Slender Man.

It was a case that gained the attention of the press internationally, bringing children's internet usage and "creepypastas" to the forefront of public attention.
But what really happened in the woods that day?
