The Teenage Slenderman Stabbing Victim Is Now Speaking Out About the Incident

By

The details of the 2014 Slenderman stabbing gripped the nation as a young girl was brutally attacked by her two friends in an attempt to appease the fictional supernatural character. The young girl, who is named Payton Leutner, was stabbed 19 times, but she miraculously survived and subsequently has spent the last five years coming to grips with the horror that she suffered. 

Where is the Slenderman victim today? She sat down with ABC's David Muir in a 20/20 special entitled "The Wicked" to detail how she survived her ordeal, the fear she deals with now, and what it was like to suffer through an attack committed by her closest pals.
