Waukesha police investigate stabbing incident

WAUKESHA (AP) — A court document says the 12-year-old girl stabbed 19 times in some woods in Waukesha narrowly escaped death.

Doctors at Waukesha Memorial Hospital told police the girl was “one millimeter away from certain death” because one of her stab wounds missed a major artery near her heart by a millimeter.

The document says a surgical team performing laparoscopic surgery on the girl found injuries to her liver, pancreas and stomach.

UPDATE: On Tuesday morning, June 3rd, Waukesha authorities released the 911 call associated with this case. CLICK the audio player just below to listen to it.

The hospital declined to update the girl’s condition Tuesday. Police said Monday the girl’s condition was stable.

Two of the victim’s friends, both 12, are charged in adult court with first-degree attempted homicide. They are each being held on $500,000 cash.

    This is so terrifying! I am in complete shock that he so called “friends” would do something like this! To me it seems like the two girls that did this have some mental issues going on. My other question is where are their parents? They believe this has been planne for a very long time i do not understand why the parents were not monitoring what they are doing on the internet. I understand that u cant monitor their every single move but if this has been the works for as long a they say i just dnt understand how their parents had absolutely no clue about this and did not know about their obsession w “slender man” and the website!

    This is horrible. These girls are so young. Thank God she’s alive. The fault shouldn’t be blamed entirely on the two kids, their parents should have been charged as well. They’re too young. They didn’t know what the hell they were doing. They should be checked and have a mental evaluation.

      Those two girls knew exactly what they were doing when they did it. So please lets not go that way with this. Yeah they were 12 but by that age you know right from wrong and you should defiantly know STABBING SOMEONE IS WRONG!

    • Tara Lenihan

      Obviously they should have mental health evaluations, but to say that a 12yo wouldn’t know is practically insane itself! I have a 12yo, she’s appalled by this story as is my 8yo!

      Parents cant be blamed for everything there kids do,most of us do our best to know whats going on with their kids,but if they develop a sick and twisted mind then thats on them and if signs were there that they had issues they should have been receiving treatment.I dont think any parent would ever dream that their kids were capable of this let alone do it..Prayers to the victim and her family..

  • Alex

    God BLESS this man who found this young girl. Because of him she has the chance to survive. I am speechless as to the acts of people now a days. I can’t believe these girls are 12 years old and they could do something like this. They called themselves her FRIENDS!

  • Kurt Thomas

    They should be charged as adults! These are serial killers in the making and what they did (planning the murder, changing the strategy of the murder, and then leading and manipulating the child into a trap) in nothing short of henious and these little monsters need to go away. Having a 3 year-old daughter, I have enough to worruy about. Parents and children should not have to worry about a child being led to their deaths by “friends” who are psychopaths.

    To what degree was one of the girl’s influenced by her father, who not only pursued their own fascination with the the dark side and occult but actively encouraged their own daughter with what by now had become an obsession?

    Does it boil down to a failure to tell right from wrong, parenting skills, a capacity to swap fantasy for reality, the influence of the internet and memes where players are at times unable to disengage from hype, to the point that such outlets serve as proxies for participants own dark nature ….? Or was this just a willful attempt at murder a long time in the making….?
