Attorneys for Morgan Geyser filed a motion this week asking for a change of venue in her trial. Geyser is one of two girls charged with trying to kill a classmate in order to appease a fictional character called Slenderman.
One of the girls is being held in the Washington County Jail.
Fox 6 in Milwaukee reports:
“The motion filed on Monday cites multiple reasons for the change of venue request including Google Trends. The motion indicates “Google Trends has labeled the ‘Slenderman stabbing’ event” as one that has been trending between August 2015 and August 2016. The paperwork says “This topic has been only 40 percent as popular in the Green Bay-Appleton metropolitan area, and only 20 percent as popular in the Madison metropolitan area.”
