The good part of me wanted her to live." This, according to the criminal complaint.The knife was recovered after the girls were taken into custody.
It was apparently in a purse that was sitting between the two girls, according to the complaint.
The complaint says Weier's father reported a knife missing from his residence.
"One suspect held the victim down while the other suspect stabbed her 19 times in the arms, legs and torso. But, incredibly and thankfully, the victim survived this brutal assault," Chief Jack said.
The complaint says police spoke with Weier -- who spoke about a website called "Creepy Pasta." The complaint says Weier explained this was a website that talked about horror stories -- and people can create their own stories. In order to be a proxy, Weier explained, you have to kill someone -- to show your dedication to Slenderman, according to the complaint.
The Waukesha Police Department is deeply saddened that this 12-year-old girl had to suffer through this horrific crime," said Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack.
