MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) — A Wisconsin woman who admitted to stabbing a classmate to please online horror character Slender Man has been released from a mental institution on Monday.
Friday’s ruling by a judge was that Anissa Weier, 19, will be released from the Winnebago Mental Health Institute after nearly four years.
It will be subjected to strict conditions including restricted internet access and 24-hour GPS monitoring.
Morgan Geyser, a friend of Weier’s, lured Payton Lutener, a classmate, to Waukesha park after a May 2014 nightover.
Geyser repeatedly stabbed Leutner, while Weier encouraged her to continue.
All three girls were 12, at the time.
