WAUKESHA, Wis. – Police say a 12-year-old girl has been stabbed by two of her 12-year-old friends who allegedly had been plotting to kill her for months.

According to FOX 4’s sister station, WITI FOX 6 Now in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the two girls had been looking at a website which had content centered around death and horror stories. The suspects had supposedly been plotting to kill their friend for months.

On Saturday morning police say the two girls lured their friend into the woods where one of the suspects proceeded to stab the victim in the arms, legs and torso 19 different times, while the other girl held her down.

The stabbing victim managed to crawl her way out to a roadway where a passing bicyclist discovered her and contacted police for help. Hours later the two suspects were found by authorities walking on foot, and were then taken into custody. They are being held on charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

      I’m not a fan of his comment either but you can survive multiple gunshot wounds too. Just depends on placement. Anyone who knows anatomy and how to use a knife could have easily carried out this crime. Thankfully she is alive and her supposed friends are in custody. Anything can be a deadly weapon, it just depends on intent, you can easily kill with something as common as a pencil or a pen. His comment in retaliation to trying to ban guns for everything sounds just about as dumb as those commenting on the other side.

    Apprently she wasn’t really their friend. Why would anyone want to afflict pain on someone the “care” about? Let alone 12 year olds. They must have something wrong with them and little things have been going on that parents have missed. As a person who has worked in the mental- health field, they don’t just wake up and say I’m going to kill a “friend” today.

    I just watched that on maybe Dateline the other day. Two high school girls who plotted the murder of their friend for months and then drove her to the woods and stabbed her to death. Life imitating art which was imitating life. Too sad for words.
