In this episode, Amber covers the Slenderman stabbing. On May 31, 2014 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, two 12-year old girls lured their friend Payton "Bella" Leutner into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. The girls claimed that they did this to appease the fictional character, Slenderman. Bella survived after crawling out of the woods and to a nearby road where a bicyclist found her and called for help.
